Would you donate to Michael Cohen's GoFundMe?

Michael Cohen, former personal lawyer to President Donald Trump, has been in a bit of legal trouble for the last few months. Cohen is set to begin a three-year stint in federal prison in May for numerous financial crimes as well as lying before Congress. Maintaining legal representation under these circumstances takes a lot of money, so Cohen is doing what many other people under legal strain do—ask for money on the Internet. Would you donate to his GoFundMe?

Cohen is asking for half a million dollars on the fundraising website GoFundMe, which would be put in the "Michael Cohen Truth Fund" a "transparent trust account." 

On August 21, Michael Cohen made the decision to take legal responsibility and to continue his commitment to tell the truth.
Michael decided to put his family and his country first. Now Michael needs your financial help.

The GoFundMe does not specify what the money would pay for.

The pursuit of truth is all well and good, but it seems like Michael Cohen has never had a problem finding money. Per the New York Times

Mr. Cohen not only disguised the income he earned from his taxi business, prosecutors said, but he also failed to disclose $100,000 he made in 2014 from brokering the sale of a piece of property in “a private aviation community” in Ocala, Fla., and another $30,000 he made from brokering the sale of a Birkin bag, “a highly coveted French handbag,” the government explained.
Then there was the $200,000 in consulting fees that he took in and did not disclose as income from working with “an assisted living company,” prosecutors said, which he gave advice to about real-estate deals.

So where'd all that Birkin bag money go?
