His former security adviser, Michael Flynn, is accused of lying about his interactions with Russia during the 2016 election. His former lawyer, Michael Cohen was this week found guilty of lying to Congress about the payments that were made to two women who his boss has affairs with. As of next March, he will be calling prison home for the next three years.
After his conviction, he sat down with ABC News and sounded contrite. The question is, does he truly feel remorseful or is he pretending for the cameras?
Honestly, I don’t know if I believe him. While I understand how easy it is to get involved with work and those whom you work with, there has to be a clear moral and legal boundary somewhere.

The second one, there is no excuse, especially for someone who by trade knows the law inside and out.
