Judge orders Michael Cohen's release, says purpose of transfer to jail was "retaliatory"

On Thursday, a federal judge has ordered the release from jail of Michael Cohen back into home confinement after finding that Cohen was returned to prison in retaliation for his plans to write a book about Donald J. Trump.

"And it’s retaliation because of his desire to exercise his First Amendment rights to publish a book and to discuss anything about the book or anything else he wants on social media and with others," so federal judge Alvin K. Hellerstein of Federal District Court.
