INBOX: Michael Cohen’s attorney says the former Trump fixer remains in prison under quarantine without explanation, despite his promised release date yesterday, May 1.

Context: This appears to be a trend in the Bureau of Prisons in the age of Covid-19, making those granted release remain in prison for a “14-day quarantine”—that is neither a quarantine nor limited to 14 days.

One judge called it “Kafkaesque.”

More context:

That was a ruling in an unrelated case.

Cohen received no sympathy from his sentencing judge, who described his bid for compassionate release a media stunt. The BOP then indicated it would release him, before the recent delay. 

The attorney’s release reveals more of the timeline, including Cohen’s March 31 letter to the camp counselor of his prison FCI Otisville and the staff’s response.
