( – Michael Cohen, former attorney of Donald Trump, has stated that the lengthy sentences that many of the Jan. 6 defendants received should serve as a warning for the sentences that the defendants in the Georgia election case should expect to receive.

During his interview on CNN, Cohen spoke about the criminal case in Georgia. He indicated that the 18 defendants apart from Trump should expect that they may receive sentences that are “equally as painful” as the one handed down to Enrique Tarrio, the former leader of the Proud Boys.

On September 5, Tarrio received a sentence in relation to his seditious conspiracy charge that demands he spend 22 years behind bars. This is the lengthiest sentence connected to the Capitol attack thus far.

Cohen argued that “reality is setting in” and that the co-defendants in the case in Georgia should view this sentencing as a warning. He was quoted saying that the defendants were likely to be handed down significant sentences and that the Jan. 6 cases were not isolated. He noted that he believes the Fulton County, GA sentences are going to be equally tough.

When asked about his reaction to the defendants and how they made their cases, Cohen argued that it was necessary for them to face “reality” over the actions they took “on behalf of” Trump. He proceeded to state that the former President had blown the “dog whistle” for them to go and attack the U.S. Capitol. Now it was time for them to see the damage caused to their lives because of Trump, according to Cohen.
