Michael Cohen in The Clink Come Monday, with Ominous Warnings for His Safety

Cohen’s destination is “cushy” to some, but a former prison case manager has concerns about his safety.

Michael Cohen will undoubtedly go down in American history as one of the most controversial figures of the early 21st century.

Cohen, who was once the personal “fixer” attorney for both citizen and President Donald Trump, found himself mired in a bizarre attempt by the democrats to unseat sitting President Donald Trump.  His loyalty to the President, however, was also his undoing as his lies to Congress were recognized within weeks of their uttering.

This has saddled Cohen with a disbarment and a lengthy prison sentence, the latter of which he will begin on Monday.

Michael Cohen, 53, is due to report Monday to the Federal Correctional Institution, Otisville to start a three-year sentence for tax evasion, lying to Congress and campaign finance crimes.

Tucked in the lush countryside south of the Catskill Mountains, Otisville is actually two federal facilities with a total of about 800 inmates: a medium-security prison where former NFL star Darren Sharper is serving a 20-year rape sentence, and a satellite camp for non-violent offenders like Cohen.

Cohen’s sentence poses a risk for the aging ex-lawyer, as former Otisville case manager Jack Donson points out.

Cohen could also be a target of bullying, harassment or worse for his cooperation with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and other probes, and that could make him a candidate for the prison’s protective housing unit, said Donson. Trump himself has branded Cohen a “rat.”

Factor in the camp’s design — off a secluded two-lane road, without much fencing or security — and Cohen could find himself easily harassed by paparazzi or ambushed by someone looking to do harm, said Donson.

“He’s not a good fit,” said Donson. “Anybody in the public could drive up to the Otisville camp, walk right into the visiting room, all the way to where Michael Cohen is sitting — literally within feet — and take him out.”
