Cohen says Trump knew about Trump Tower meeting with Russians

President Trump Denies Claims He Knew About Meeting With Russians

Word that Cohen is willing to cooperate with Trump's most significant current threat - the Mueller investigation - underscores the fact that the president and his former personal lawyer and longtime fixer are now in open warfare. Giuliani claimed Sunday the recordings contained no evidence that implicated the president in illegal activity.

"The highway is littered with Trump lieutenants who made the mistake of believing that", said a second source.

The Justice Department has been investigating Mr. Cohen for months, raiding his home, office and hotel room in April in search of documents related to a $1,30,000 payment he facilitated to Stormy Daniels.

USA president Donald Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen said that Trump knew in advance about a June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower at which Russians offered to provide damaging information about his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, CNN reported on Thursday.

Trump denied that he knew about the meeting, tweeting on Friday: "I did NOT know of the meeting with my son, Don jr ..."

Per Giuliani, Trump and other participants in that alleged meeting claim it did not occur, and that Cohen has provided different dates for the discussion. The government has been totally ethical about this, ' Giuliani said.

He also said Cohen was unreliable.

In retaliating for USA tariffs, China targeted products from areas of the country that supported Trump during the 2016 election. The biggest news from the Trump-Juncker meeting is that it appears to have delayed an impending trade war over autos.

This person said he subsequently ran into Cohen from time to time, and simply viewed Cohen as the "guy who was there at Trump Tower". Trump has denied knowing in advance about the meeting.

Last week, it was disclosed that Cohen had secretly recorded Trump when the two men were discussing a hush-money payment for a story involving Playboy model Karen McDougal in September 2016.

"Give it to me", Trump says.

Trump's present lawyer, Rudi Giuliani rubbished Cohen's claims, seeking to discredit his predecessor as "not credible".

Giuliani also confirmed that Trump and Cohen have formally severed legal ties.

The special prosecutor has already indicted more than 30 people, including 12 Russian intelligence agents indicted this month for allegedly hacking computer networks of the Democratic Party and publicly disseminating the stolen information. As recently as May, Giuliani called Cohen "an honest, honorable lawyer".

"If lying to the media was a crime, he would go to jail for a thousand years", Giuliani quipped.

For Russian business, Putin's summit win over Trump turns sour
There will be no relief of Crimea-related sanctions until Russian Federation returns control of the Crimean Peninsula to Ukraine. Pompeo also testified on the status of negotiating North Korea's denuclearization, saying a great deal of work remains.

"I don't see how he's got any credibility", Giuliani added.

Trump himself jumped on the anti-Cohen bandwagon Sunday, as he retweeted a former Cohen defense of Donald Trump, Jr., regarding the Russian Federation meeting. "This nonsense needs to stop!"

Cohen referred questions to Davis, who did not respond to requests for comment on this story.

"Prosecutors prefer to strike cooperation deals quietly and in private because they want to save the impact of any valuable testimony and information that a cooperating witness can offer until trial", he said.

The two sides have been negotiating all year, even after Trump changed legal teams and Mueller pursued indictments of Russian officials accused to seeking to interfere in the 2016 elections.

After repeated denials from Donald Trump Sr. and Jr., CNN reported a bombshell that completely undermines the Trump administration's narrative about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russian operatives who offered dirt on Hillary Clinton.

The remarkable about-face followed a year-and-a-half during which Cohen had grown increasingly estranged from Trump since the real estate mogul moved into the White House, leaving Cohen behind in NY with the title - but little of the responsibility - of personal attorney to the President and progressively dwindling access.
