Bill Cosby's TV wife, Phylicia Rashad praised his release from a Pennsylvania prison in a tweet on Wednesday afternoon.

Cosby, 83, was released from prison on Wednesday after serving two years of a three-to-10-year prison sentence on sexual assault charges.

"FINALLY!!!! A terrible wrong is being righted- a miscarriage of justice is corrected!" Rashad tweeted.

Rashad's furious followers tagged award University in their tweets as they vented their outrage.

Rashad was recently named dean of Howard University's Financial Arts department.

"I'm sure Phylicia Rashad being the new dean of Howard University’s College of Fine Arts will have absolutely no bearing whatsoever on how that program handles student claims of sexual harassment and assault," tweeted one user. "Yep, nothing to see here, folks. Shut up and dance."

Cosby's spokesman Andrew Wyatt told NBC News that his client expected to be turned down.

Wyatt said the news that Cosby's parole was denied was "not a surprise to Mr. Cosby, his family, his friends and/or his legal team."

"Mr. Cosby has vehemently proclaimed his innocence and continues to deny all allegations made against him, as being false, without the sheer evidence of any proof," Wyatt said.

"Today, Mr. Cosby continues to remain hopeful that the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court will issue an opinion to vacate his conviction or warrant him a new trial."

Nicki Minaj's brother, Jelani Maraj has exhausted his appeals two years after he was convicted of child rape. A Nassau County judge denied Maraj's request to set aside his conviction and release him on bail.

In November 2017 a Nassau County jury convicted Maraj, 40, of raping his now-former stepdaughter when she was just 11 years old.

His defense team argued that the charges were fabricated by Maraj's ex-wife - the girl's mother - to extort $25 million from Minaj, who was an A-list rap star at the time.

The girl testified that Maraj raped her repeatedly between April and November 2015 while her mother was at work.

In his ruling, the judge said Maraj failed to meet the "burden of proof that any misconduct here created a significant risk that a substantial right of the defendant was prejudiced."

The judge set Maraj's sentencing for Nov. 18 - nearly 2 years to the day he was convicted.

Maraj faces the possibility of life behind bars.

A federal appeals court has ordered President Donald Trump to turn over his tax returns to Congress.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled Friday that President Trump's accountants must hand over his tax returns. But Trump could still take the case to the full appeals court or even the Supreme Court.

House Democrats, who are desperate to impeach Trump before the 2020 election, are ecstatic over the appeals order.

"Today's ruling is a fundamental and resounding victory for Congressional oversight, our Constitutional system of checks and balances, and the rule of law," Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), chairman of the oversight committee, said in a statement.

The House Committee on Oversight and Reform subpoenaed Trump's tax records from Trump's accounts, Mazars USA, in April. The subpoena include documents from 2011 to 2018 that the House wants for investigation into the president's potential conflicts of interest.

House Democrats are also attempting to impeach Trump over a complaint filed by a CIA whistleblower who asked to remain anonymous.
