WASHINGTON (AP) – President Donald Trump’s ex-lawyer is now an ex-lawyer.

Michael Cohen was officially disbarred on Tuesday while he was in Washington giving closed-door testimony to the House intelligence committee.

A New York court ruled that Cohen’s guilty plea last November automatically stripped him of his eligibility to practice law.

A spokeswoman for Cohen did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to the Senate Intelligence Committee and to campaign finance violations for his involvement in payments to a former Playboy model and porn actress who allege they had affairs with Trump.

Cohen is due to start a three-year prison sentence in May.  He had been practicing law in New York since 1992.
