The Lawyer Who Represented Terrorists Heads to Prison, as Unapologetic as Ever | Village Voice

“I’m busier than ever,” he says, and with the wave of a hand proceeds to tick off a list. “I’m in the final draft of an appeal on U.S. v. Amina Ali, which is due August 23. I’m preparing for a trial on a significant drug-and-gun conspiracy in the Northern District of New York sometime in mid- to late September. I currently have a lawsuit against Egypt in the African Union. I’m about to file a lawsuit against Israel in Belgium. I’m still up to my neck in the debate and discussion about whether to go to the International Criminal Court for Palestine. I’m writing a brief on a trial I did in upstate New York in family court; we’re writing the sentence memo on Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, and I’ve probably got another ten federal cases that are in their final stages.” He smiles. “So yeah, I’m winding down.”In Cohen’s telling, the Trombly prosecution isn’t all that different from his standard fare. To him, the narrative isn’t about a girl who gets mowed down by a pinch-faced old man who now faces his second DUI-related charge; it’s the story of an overzealous prosecutor targeting a frail, unpopular geriatric, and a community in search of a scapegoat.
