Former fixer of Donald Trump Michael Cohen lives a comfortable life in the federal prison where prisoners put him & # 39; Mr. Mayor & # 39; his lawyer has revealed.
Cohen, 53, who broadcasts a three-year term for a series of crimes, including hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels, is said to live as a celebrity & # 39; at the Otisville federal correctional institute in New York.
His lawyer David Schwartz told Page six that Cohen is doing great & # 39; and & # 39; enjoy hanging out with the other prisoners & # 39 ;.
& # 39; He is actually very stressed. The only drawback is that he misses his family, & Schwartz said after visiting Cohen in prison.

Schwartz went further: & # 39; Michael has a job repairing fire hydrants. He really enjoys his work. He looks great – he is brown, trains every day and has lost more than 30 pounds. He sleeps in a closet with a bed, bedside table and desk.
& # 39; He is a celebrity in prison. Everyone comes up and shakes their hand. He enjoys hanging out with the other prisoners. & # 39;
So far, Cohen has not been beaten by other prisoners by other prisoners, he said.
Former Trump assistant Omarosa Manigault Newman is said to have visited Cohen in prison.
Sources said earlier that Cohen & # 39; every day in the gym & # 39; and & # 39; loved life & # 39; in the camp with little security.
Cohen would be relieved because he had no public attention and fear before reporting to prison.
Otisville consists of two facilities: an average security prison, where former NFL star Darren Sharper is serving a 20-year rape sentence, and a satellite camp for non-violent offenders such as Cohen.
The camp is known for its significant population of Jewish prisoners such as Cohen because of its proximity to Jewish communities in New York City.
Cohen claims that Donald Trump (pictured yesterday in Ohio) instructed him to make hush-money payments in 2016, but the president denies the claim
A full-time rabbi is employed in prison and kosher meals are available to prisoners.
It also offers weights and other training equipment, a basketball court, a tennis court, and a baseball field.
Cohen, who is married and has two children, once said that he would take a bullet & # 39; for Trump and worked for the Trump organization for more than ten years.
But the 53-year-old turned against Trump in his statements to prosecutors and Congress and called him a racist, a scammer and a cheat.
Cohen admitted that he had directed silent payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal, who both claimed they had business with Trump before he became president.
Trump's former lawyer made sure that American Media Inc., parent of the pro-Trump National Enquirer, paid $ 150,000 to McDougal to buy and bury her story.
He also admitted paying Daniels $ 130,000 and was repaid by Trump's business empire.
Cohen claims that the payments made during the 2016 presidential campaign were made under the direction of Trump. Trump denies this.

& # 39; I didn't work for the campaign. I worked for him. And why am I going to jail? I'm not the one who slept with the porn star, & Cohen told the New Yorker earlier this year.
Trump has denied having had the encounters with Daniels and McDougal more than ten years ago.
Cohen was also convicted of tax evasion and lying to Congress.
The critical lie surrounded a project for a & # 39; Trump Tower & # 39; in Moscow, which Cohen initially claimed to have been abandoned in January 2016.
Cohen later said that those efforts were in fact continued after Trump won the Republican nomination later that year.
He was sentenced in December last year, but the start of his sentence was postponed to May after the operation and to allow him to testify before the congress.
In a farewell before reporting to jail, he said: & I hope that when I return to my family, the country will be in a place without xenophobia, injustice and at the helm of our country. & # 39;
Trump has insisted that he never ordered Cohen to do anything illegal.
