Bipartisan leaders of Senate Intelligence Committee respond to Michael Cohen's plea deal

Bipartisan leaders of Senate Intelligence Committee respond to Michael Cohen's plea deal

Among other lies, Cohen said he told Congress that all discussions of the Moscow Trump Tower project ended by January 2016, when they had actually continued until June of that year.

Cohen will admit misleading lawmakers about a Trump real estate project in Russian Federation, say reports.

Trump said he ultimately decided not to pursue a real estate project in Russian Federation, but it isn't clear precisely how discussions ended over the notional Trump Tower in Moscow.

Cohen told a judge that statements he gave a Senate Select Committee in 2017 were false.

Trump speculated that "what he's trying to do is get a reduced sentence". "He's a proven liar who is doing everything he can to get out of a long-term prison sentence for serious crimes. that had nothing to do with the Trump Organization". Arguably the biggest deal here is the possibility that Trump was still negotiating with Russian Federation to build a hotel while running for president, and the possibility that this attempt at a business relationship played a role in Russia's attempts to influence the election. "That was no deal". The project, Trump said, "lasted a short period of time", adding that he decided not to do it because he wanted to focus on running for President.

The new guilty plea in U.S. District Court marks the first time the office of the special counsel, Robert Mueller, has charged Cohen.

The guilty plea is based on a charge brought by Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference into the 2016 election and whether Trump campaign officials colluded with Vladimir Putin's regime. The 52-year-old had always been one of Trump's most loyal and ardent aides, and once claimed he'd "take a bullet" for the president.

In August, Cohen pleaded guilty to violating finance laws during the 2016 presidential election by handling hush money for Mr Trump's alleged lovers.

The rumoured highest ever paid contestant, Noel Edmonds , is expected to join the camp before this season is out. Thankfully, ITV's stepped in to quash the rumours, calling them "absolute rubbish", as Digital Spy reports.

Cohen said nothing as a gaggle of reporters shouted questions at him.

In the past few months, Trump has repeatedly criticized people who cooperate with federal investigations.

That investigation has since expanded into Trump's business dealings about which Cohen would have critical information.

Adult-film star Stormy Daniels was given $US130,000 ($178,000) and former Playboy model Karen McDougal was paid $US150,000 ($205,385).

In August, Cohen pleaded guilty to multiple counts of campaign finance violations, tax evasion and bank fraud.

The committee rescheduled closed-door testimony by Cohen on October 25, 2017.

Napolitano said that Mueller's investigation could continue "well into 2019".

Trump has increasingly been lashing out at the Mueller investigation, calling it an "illegal Joseph McCarthy style Witch Hunt" that has "shattered so many innocent lives". "In all fairness to him, most people are going to do that".
