An ex-lawyer of the United States President Donald Trump, Michael Cohen, is set to be freed from prison to home confinement due to the coronavirus concern.
Mr. Cohen was accused of lying to Congress for his client, Donald Trump, in connection with the campaign fraud case.
The fifty three years old man was punished for at least three years.
The decision to release the ex-lawyer has raised several eyebrows. Some have criticized the Trump administration in connection with this matter.
