Former lawyer and fixer for ex-President Donald Trump, Michael Cohen, is a free man after serving a three-year sentence and issued a warning apparently directed at his former boss.

Cohen, 55, walked out of a Lower Manhattan federal courthouse on Monday morning after serving a split sentence including 13 months in federal prison and 18 months under house arrest.

He told reporters waiting for his release not to deny his crimes he said he committed under Trump’s orders.

I will continue to provide information, testimony, documents and my full cooperation on all ongoing investigations to ensure that others are held accountable for their dirty actions and that no one is ever considered above the law, said Cohen.

Cohen, who was Trump’s personal lawyer, turned on the ex-president after his arrest in 2018. He pleaded guilty to tax evasion, campaign finance violations and lying in Congress in 2018. Cohen testified the following year before Congress about possible collusion between Trump and Russia in the 2016 presidential election, angering the ex-president, who called him a rat.

On Monday after completing his sentence, Cohen said: I feel great today. It was long overdue.

The official end of #CohenConfinementCountdown, Cohen tweeted, including a photo of a court document. This is what freedom finally looks like!

Cohen also criticized prosecutors, the Justice Department and the judge who sentenced him.

Nor does my release today undo the behavior of Justice Department (then Attorney General) Bill Barr, Southern New York District attorneys, Judge William H Pauley III, or Donald himself during my incarceration and my initial prosecution, Cohen said.

As Assets fixer, Cohen handled various scandals for him, including alleged affairs with adult movie star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal. Cohen paid Daniels $ 130,000 in return for his silence as Trump ran for president in 2016. He ended up serving jail time for it.

Cohen was held in federal prison in Otisville, New York, and was under house arrest in his upscale apartment on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

I am extremely close and extremely grateful to be able to celebrate Thanksgiving away from home, Cohen said.

Cohen published a bestselling book called Disloyal: A Memoir, About His Time in Trump’s Service.
