Federal prosecutors in Manhattan on Friday
asked a judge
Michael Cohen, the former personal
lawyer for U.S. President Donald Trump, to a "substantial term
of imprisonment" for paying an adult film star hush money on
Trump's behalf and evading taxes.
Cohen, who has been cooperating with U.S. Special Counsel
Robert Mueller's probe into possible collusion between Russia
and Trump's 2016 election campaign, pleaded guilty to the
charges in August.
Mueller is expected later on Friday to make a separate
sentencing recommendation on a charge that Cohen lied to
Congress about discussions over the construction of a proposed
Trump Organization skyscraper in Moscow. Cohen pleaded guilty to
that charge last week.
