President Trump railed against his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen after he asked a judge for no prison time.

The president’s frustration with his former fixer ramped back up after Mr. Cohen revealed in his latest guilty plea that the Trump Organization was working on a Trump Tower Moscow during the 2016 election.

In a deal with the special counsel’s team, Mr. Cohen detailed his work on the “Moscow project” and how he lied to Congress about it as a means of being “loyal” to Mr. Trump.

Late Friday, Mr. Cohen’s lawyers asked a judge to show leniency towards their client in light of his cooperation with the Russia investigation.

Thursday’s bombshell guilty plea marked the second time Mr. Cohen struck a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller. In August, Mr. Cohen pled guilty to a slew of charges connected to hush money payments under Mr. Trump’s direction.
