Donald Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen was sentenced this week. A federal judge sentenced Cohen to three years in prison. The president's former fixer previously pleaded guilty to several charges, including violating campaign finance laws, lying to Congress and tax evasion. The campaign finance charges stemmed from hush money payments to women who allegedly had sexual affairs with Trump. The president responded after Cohen's sentencing and said he "never directed" him to break the law.
Other major headlines of the week included a jury recommending life in prison for the man convicted of murder for driving into counterprotesters at a white nationalist rally, a deadly shooting at a French Christmas market and U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May winning a confidence vote from her Conservative party.
