Cohen, who faces a 2 p.m. deadline to report to the Federal Correctional Institution, Otisville, took patting shots at Donald Trump during a press before turning himself in. He told reporters,

“I hope when I rejoin my family an friends that my country will be in a place without xenophobia, injustice and lies at the helm of our country,” Cohen said outside his Park Avenue home in Manhattan. He went on to say, “There still remains much to be told, and I look forward to the day I can share the truth.”
