President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen was disbarred in New York after pleading guilty to lying to Congress about a plan for a Trump Tower project in Moscow.

An appeals court in Manhattan granted a request from a disciplinary panel to remove Cohen’s name from the roll of attorneys allowed to practice in the state. He was admitted to the bar in New York in 1992.
