Cohen, who earlier this year pleaded guilty to financial crimes in which he implicated the president, has been urging Americans to vote in the upcoming midterm elections, telling CNN last month that voting could help avoid more years of “craziness.”
“Listen, here’s my recommendation. Grab your family, grab your friends, grab your neighbors, and get to the poll, because if not, you are going to have another two or another six years of this craziness,” Cohen told CNN.
“So, make sure you vote. All right?” he added in his first interview since pleading guilty to eight federal counts in August.
Cohen made a similar voting plea on Twitter, declaring that the November midterms “might be the most important vote in our lifetime.”

Cohen confirmed last month that he had re-registered as a Democrat after serving as the deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC) following the 2016 election.

He resigned from the position in June after federal prosecutors began investigating him for bank fraud, tax fraud and campaign finance law violations.
“I’ve been Democrat for pretty much my whole entire life,” Cohen told CNN. “I switched because of a request of the RNC. Couldn’t be the vice chair of the RNC and be a Democrat.”
