The tweet resurfaced Tuesday after Cohen reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors, pleading guilty to eight federal charges including bank and tax fraud and campaign finance violations.

“Hillary Clinton when you go to prison for defrauding America and perjury, your room and board will be free!” Cohen’s now-deleted tweet read.

Comedian and frequent Trump critic Kathy Griffin, along with a number of other media figures and prominent Twitter users, retweeted Cohen’s old tweet to mock him after he entered the guilty plea.

Cohen, who served as Trump’s personal lawyer and “fixer” for a number of years, told prosecutors that he made two six-figure campaign finance violations at the direction of the candidate in order to influence the election.

Trump on Wednesday morning took a swipe at Cohen with his first public comment on the issue, tweeting that anyone “looking for a good lawyer” should not hire Cohen.

"If anyone is looking for a good lawyer, I would strongly suggest that you don’t retain the services of Michael Cohen!" he tweeted.
