A federal judge’s ruling just shocked the entire nation. Millions of people are astounded by the decision to release him from jail — this is a completely stunning development.
“A federal judge on Thursday ordered former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen released from prison and into home confinement,” reported Breitbart News this week.
Judge Alvin Hellerstein, who serves the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, ruled that Cohen being taken back into federal custody was “retaliatory” and therefore released him.
And what was Hellerstein identifying as “retaliatory,” anyway? According to him, Cohen simply wanted “to exercise his first amendment rights to publish a book” and the White House allegedly wanted this stopped.
Cohen had been assigned to home confinement since late May, but this changed when he was placed back into federal custody after promoting his new book on social media. There could be more to the story, however.
Remember: Members of the political swamp protect their own. Cohen is preparing to release an anti-Trump book, so he could be getting a free pass to spread the word. It is an election year and anything is possible.
