MICHAEL COHEN has admitted that he lied to Congress about his knowledge of what Donald Trump knew about Russia’s involvement in the 2016 elections. The bombshell allegations just weeks before Democrats are set to take control of the House, which, with this news is likely to create a very interesting headache for the President.
This is where it gets interesting. According to the Washington Post, Cohen, apparently lied to Congress when he testified that Trump had no knowledge of Russian meetings in Trump Tower, the same meetings, that involved that now infamous lawyer both parties denied knowing about. The confirmation comes at a time when Trump, ehum, has remained still calling the investigation a “witch hunt” meanwhile using his platform and rally’s to incite violence. The Post reports that Cohen made several references to something called “The Moscow Project” and “Individual 1” (both relating to Trump, whether directly or indirectly).
In 2016, Trump, denied knowing anything of such a deal with Russia or any meetings between Russians and his family that took place in Trump Tower.
“For the record, I have ZERO investments in Russia” Trump tweeted in July 2016. The next day, he claimed, “I have nothing to do with Russia.” In case it couldn’t get anymore interesting, uh, it turns out Mueller has also discovered some criminal lies on behalf of Russia. In previous Washington Post articles, The Post, uncovered that Cohen had e-mailed Vladamir Putin ‘s press office in 2016.
This is important because both Cohen and Peskov have denied such doings, but, with his new guilty confession — the truth appears to have fully come to light. The e-mails were apparently sent in January 2016, where, Cohen had also attempted to make travel plans to Russia to “skirt rules of the United States, and, essentially grease the foundation for the deal”.
Trump ‘s lies are coming to the forefront
Although the business deal appears to have been abandoned in January 2016, as, per a statement written in his confession. Cohen, admitted that he continued the deal (or tried to salvage what was left) until about June 2016 of the same year. Meanwhile, it was also revealed that Trump was “informed of the deal and the comings of the deal at least three times prior; during, and in the aftermath of the deal.
“By the end of January 2016, I determined that the proposal was not feasible for a variety of business reasons and should not be pursued further,” Cohen said in the guilty confession to Senate and House officials.
