Cohen Makes Final Statement On Way To Prison, Says ‘Much Remains To Be Told’

Amid an absolute mob scene of reporters and camera operators, Michael Cohen made one last statement before reporting to prison for three years on Monday morning.

“I hope when I rejoin my family and friends that the country will be in a place without xenophobia, injustice and lies at the helm of our country,” he said. “There still remains much to be told, and I look forward to the day that I can share the truth. And thank you all very much.”

He then pushed his way through the ocean of bodies and cameras, being buffeted by people trying to get a final question in. He was loaded into a black Escalade and zipped down the midtown Manhattan street on his way to incarceration.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
