Michael Cohen who is the former lawyer to the President of the United States, President Donald Trump, as expected, as pleaded to new criminal charges levelled against him
Michael Cohen who already a few months back (in August) pleaded guilty of breaking campaign laws, was at the Manhattan Courtroom on Thursday where he admitted lying to Congress in relation to Russia inquiry.
Reports suggest that Michael Cohen admitted in Courtroom to making false statements to Congress about his efforts to pursue a Trump Tower (real estate project) deal in Moscow during the 2016 presidential campaign.
That real estate deal has been a focus of the special counsel investigation into whether the Trump campaign conspired with Russian operatives
Mr Michael lied under oath while giving his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, where he lied when asked about his contact with the Kremlin, and about the potential project.
He also lied the negotiations, which never led to a final deal.
This clearly is not a good time for President Trump, as this new revelation by Michael Cohen means, the Robert Mueller’s case has cracked open what almost everyone has been guessing actually happened between Trump’s team and his Russian contacts. Also, being Trump’s Lawyer (now former Lawyer) Michael Cohen could not have made any move Trump is not aware of…clearly somebody will deny this again…
