Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former personal attorney, has reportedly been disbarred.

The New York Post reported Tuesday that the decision was announced by Manhattan’s Appellate Division, First Department and the Attorney Grievance Committee.

{mosads}The disbarment comes after Cohen pleaded guilty to eight federal charges last year — tax fraud, campaign finance violations and lying to Congress — and was sentenced to three years in federal prison.

He is expected to report to prison in May.

New York law says that any person convicted of a felony is not permitted to practice law.

Cohen was admitted to the New York bar in 1992 after graduating from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Michigan, according to the newspaper, which added that he worked for several years as a personal attorney to Trump.

Cohen can seek to be reinstated to the New York bar in seven years, according to state law. 

Cohen will testify behind closed doors to the Senate and House Intelligence committees on Tuesday and Thursday, respectively, in connection with their investigations into Russia’s election interference.

His public testimony before the Democratic-led House Oversight and Reform Committee on Wednesday is expected to focus on Trump’s family business.
