Cohen's Lawyer Debunks CNN Collusion Report. CNN Appears To Hide His Statement

Cohen's Lawyer Debunks CNN Collusion Report. CNN Appears To Hide His Statement

Those were guiding principles for Cohen when he served as more than just a lawyer for Trump during the developer's rise from celebrity to president-elect.

The Trump records were stored alongside similar documents pertaining to other celebrities' "catch-and-kill" deals, in which exclusive rights to people's stories were bought with no intention of publishing to keep them out of the news. The Special Counsel's investigation continues to uncover crimes, hand down indictments, and secure convictions against Trump associates.

Special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, reports to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein because Sessions, a former Trump campaign adviser, recused himself. These moves could have a ripple effect on the legal fortunes of Cohen and, perhaps, Trump. "Clearly, Attorney General Sessions doesn't have the confidence of the president".

The Enquirer endorsed Trump for president in 2016, the first time it had ever officially backed a candidate.

The legal system dumped two political hazards this week on Trump.

While Trump claims that the payments did not come out of campaign finances but from him, federal prosecutors say the payments were made to influence the 2016 election. But Cohen was never given a prominent spot in the campaign. Even if they believe some elements of the Trump-Russia investigation have been mishandled and the Justice Department should be more responsive to House oversight, they have to wonder how much fealty to Trump's platform will be rewarded.

Lanny Davis, one of Cohen's attorneys, told Business Insider on Wednesday that Cohen feels "pain for his family" that he could go to prison, and relief that the uncertainty is over now that he has a plea deal.

Trump has frequently criticised Sessions over the Attorney General's decision to recuse himself from the Russian Federation investigation. But Trump has surprised his supporters and critics before and I'm sure there's a page in his playbook where both Sessions and Mueller are forced out.

The president then said the hush payments were financed with his own money - to which Cohen had access - and that while he had no knowledge of them at the time, he had since been fully transparent. Pecker is a longtime friend of Trump and Cohen. Cohen's camp made some effort to play into the role, reaching out to Watergate whistleblower John Dean and, after Cohen's plea, establishing an online fundraising tool that seemed to predominantly receive backing from liberals. He could get about four to five years in prison at sentencing December 12. It was a sign that Flynn's cooperation was still needed - and possible - in the Mueller probe.

The special counsel is still investigating Russia's attempts to sway voters in the 2016 election.
