Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen is finally released from House arrest after three years. On Monday morning, the 55-year-old said it feels “great” to finally be a fully free man.

Cohen also said he will continue to work with officials in order to ensure those who commit crimes are justly held responsible. In 2018, Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations, tax-evasion and lying to Congress. He said his release was long overdue.

“I feel great today, it’s been long overdue,” stated the former Trump attorney. “I mean, 13 and a half months in Otisville, 18 months in home confinement, it’s not easy any way that you slice it, though I am extremely happy that I’m home with my wife and my children.”

After spending time as an inmate, Cohen said he’s waiting for Attorney General Merrick Garland to ensure that federal prisons institute earned time credit for a potential sentence reduction.
