That’s the damning new claim coming out of an apparent Buzzfeed report. According to Buzzfeed, “Trump was knowingly aware of Russia, Russia in between, and Russia in all directions”. But when it came time to talk about that, uh, Trump allegedly instructed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.
Buzzfeed found out that the particular lie came in the form of an apparent conversation about that long-talked-about Trump Tower building in Moscow. That building (from what we can see according to records out of Moscow) was never actually built due to failed negotiations between Trump and Putin.
But it doesn’t stop there. Here’s what we know:
- Trump definitely knew of the deal
- Trump instructed Cohen to lie to Congress about the deal
- Trump supported “unilateral plan for Cohen to visit Russia while the campaign was going on. The plane “essentially to kiss ass at Putin’s door step”.
- Trump previously lied about not knowing about said Moscow deal, link.
In case it couldn’t get anymore worse, uh, it does.
