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.
  
Cohen had been practicing law in New York since 1992.
