Michael Cohen Only Yesterday Found Out He’s Been Disbarred — from the papers, he says!
In testimony before Congress on Wednesday, disgraced attorney Michael Cohen claims that he only yesterday had learned of his disbarment — from reading about it in a newspaper.
According to the New York State Unified Court System, Michael Dean Cohen (registration number 2484806) was disbarred on November 29, 2018, as ordered by Appellate Division 1st Department.
Cohen, who graduated from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in 1991, was admitted to the New York bar on June 24, 1992. He says he had been working as legal counsel for Donald Trump since 2007.
