Ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen taken into custody after he balks at media gag agreement

Cohen, at a restaurant last week, was supposed to be under home confinement for the remainder of a three-year criminal sentence.

Michael Cohen, the former personal lawyer for President Donald Trump, was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals and sent to a federal jail after he balked at a demand that he agree not to talk to the media, or participate with any film or book, while serving the rest of his criminal sentence on home confinement, his attorney said.

Cohen’s detention came weeks after his furlough from a federal prison in Westchester County, N.Y., due to concerns about him catching the coronavirus, and a week after he was photographed by a New York newspapereating at a Manhattan restaurant.
