Cohen's lawyer walks back claim Pres. Trump knew of Russia meeting

Cohen's lawyer walks back claim Pres. Trump knew of Russia meeting

In an interview with Al Jazeera, Bruce Fein, a former top U.S. prosecutor, described the reports as significant amid questions over the culpability of Trump's business in the payoff scheme, which Cohen had pleaded guilty to.

Now the private and loyal Weisselberg is in the spotlight as the latest Trump confidant, and perhaps the most significant, to strike a deal with federal investigators for protection and to tell what he knows.

The prospect of Cohen telling Mueller that Trump knew in advance about the June 2016 meeting has hung over the Russian Federation probe since CNN, citing anonymous sources, reported last month that Cohen was willing to share the information. You can read the full story at the Washington Post in the link attached to this article.

Duffy, who represents the 7th Congressional District, was harshly critical of Manafort, who joined Trump's presidential campaign in March 2016 and was campaign chairman from June to August of that year.

Trump and his allies seized on the erosion of those claims.

"He called Omarosa a "dog.' I mean that's not the way we talk about women or people or even those who are in opposition to us", Duffy said".

"I don't think that Mr. Manafort would have been on trial had not the Special Counsel been looking for information on Russian collusion in the last election", Duncan said in the TV interview.




The Cohen investigation was referred to federal prosecutors in NY by US special counsel Robert Mueller, who is looking into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible co-ordination between Trump's Republican campaign and Russian officials.

A tweet by Bermudian journalist Clare O'Connor about her negative experience with Michael Cohen went viral, with some 70,000 reactions on the social media network.

Davis told the AP at the time that the basic substance of the CNN report was correct and told CNN last Wednesday that Cohen "was present during a discussion with junior and dad" pertaining to the Trump Tower meeting. "But I am not sure".

"Weisselberg knows everything about Trump entities that have taken in money and spent it", said Trump biographer Michael D'Antonio, who writes frequently about the president's businesses. "I regret my error". WaPo cited "a person familiar with Cohen's thinking" who said that Cohen was interested in talking about Trump's advance knowledge of the Trump Tower meeting with Mueller. Trump has always maintained he knew nothing of the meeting beforehand.

Trump was returning from a rally in West Virginia just hours after two former members of his inner circle were found or pleaded guilty, when one passenger quipped that a news story would surely soon be breaking about the president fuming onboard.

CNN released a statement, "We stand by our story, and are confident in our reporting of it".
