Michael Cohen will be sentenced today. It's the result from both special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and a related case from Manhattan federal prosecutors.
Cohen asked a US judge last Thursday for no prison time, citing his cooperation with multiple investigations, including the special counsel's Russia probe.
However, The Manhattan US attorney's office has asked for Cohen to receive a "substantial" sentence of roughly four years. The special counsel's office did not give a sentence recommendation but said Cohen had cooperated with its inquiries.
What you need to know about his charges
Cohen pleaded guilty last month to lying to Congress about plans to develop Trump Tower in Moscow when he told lawmakers they had ended in January 2016 and the extent of his conversations with the president, but he did not provide a lot of detail about those discussions in court.
In addition to admitting he lied to Congress, Cohen pleaded guilty to eight criminal charges brought on by the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York in August, including tax fraud, making false statements to a bank and campaign finance violations relating to hush-money payments made to women alleging affairs with President Trump.
