Michael Cohen ready to tell special counsel Trump knew about 2016 meeting

Share

Trump and his current lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, deny that Trump knew about the meeting beforehand and say Cohen is lying.

Cohen said he was with the president when Donald Trump Junior told him the news, but Giuliani claims this is a lie.

He lashed out at Cohen without naming him, saying, "Sounds to me like someone is trying to make up stories in order to get himself out of an unrelated jam (Taxi cabs maybe?)". If this story wasn't about Jr. seeking dirt, it would've been about Trump campaign officials meeting with a Russian lawyer who is lobbying against US-imposed sanctions on Russia.

The meeting was set up ahead of the U.S. presidential election, allegedly to glean compromising information on the opposing Clinton campaign.

"I don't see how he has any credibility", Giuliani added, referring to Cohen.

"I think the bigger point here is, is there a crime?"

How to see this weekend’s blood moon lunar eclipse
The next total lunar eclipse will happen on January 21, 2019, and it will last for one hour and two minutes, as per NASA's data. It will appear unusually large and bright , a mere 35.9 million miles from Earth on its elliptical orbit around the sun.

The meeting at Trump Tower - which was attended by Trump Jr., his brother-in-law Jared Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort - was first publicly revealed in news reports in July 2017, and Trump, his lawyers and allies have since offered misleading explanations and changing narratives about it.

President Donald Trump's case was "immeasurably" damaged by Rudy Giuliani's contradictory comments about Michael Cohen recently, according to a friend and former attorney of the president.

Mr Cohen did not immediately return a request for comment on Mr Trump's tweet. "It was not from us".

Cohen, who once declared fierce loyalty to the president, is under federal investigation in NY for his business dealings and reportedly whether hush payments violated campaign finance laws.

"I expected something like this from Cohen", Giuliani told CNN's Chris Cuomo on Thursday.

"You need other evidence", she said.

Democratic lawmakers have pointed out that two days before the meeting in Trump Tower, Trump announced plans to give a "major speech" about Clinton's scandals. "You look at all the circumstances together and use your common sense". "The prosecutor is not going to take kindly to the release of these tapes early on. now Trump knows that Cohen is given to tape-recording". If it's true, though, it raises questions about what Donald Trump Jr. has said in past testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and other things.

Mueller is known to be scrutinizing Trump's tweets about Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former F.B.I. director James Comey. "No, I did not", he answered. Former Trump Organization employees and Trump chroniclers like journalist Tim O'Brien agree that Weisselberg knows "where all financial bodies are buried". He's been lying for years. And we should understand the Cohen is in legal trouble.

The larger problem for the president is political. Such knowledge and approval of this meeting would be quite troublesome for the President's defense and narrative that there was "no collusion'".

Mr. Cohen's camp has denied being the source of the CNN report.

They can all expect very different treatment if Democrats are holding the gavel next year.

Cohen says he was one of several people with Trump when Trump Jr. informed him of the offer, and Trump said he should go ahead with the meeting.
