Cohen pleaded guilty to eight felony counts last year and will begin a three-year prison term in May.
The chairman of the House intelligence committee pointed to the case of Michael Cohen, the president's former personal lawyer, in which the government described how "Individual 1" directed and coordinated a campaign fraud scheme.
'It's very hard to make the argument that the person who was directed and was coordinated should go to jail, but the person who did the directing and did the coordinating should not.
