Trump hits back at Cohen and ‘fake news’ over Tower meeting allegations

Trump hits back at Cohen and ‘fake news’ over Tower meeting allegations

President Donald Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen has said something about the much-discussed Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer that is not exactly definitive.

Trump did not respond to shouted questions about Cohen from reporters after speaking about the economy at the White House Friday morning.

"I didn't think that listening to someone with information relevant to the fitness and character of a presidential candidate would be an issue, no", Trump Jr.

But both CNN and NBC reported - citing anonymous sources - that Cohen is willing to make his claim to Mueller.

Cohen is under federal investigation in NY.

Others also said the forms were hard to understand due to a language barrier or misinformation from immigration officials. This is a number that worries immigration attorneys and advocates because these adults may have already been deported .

He also defended his prior comments defending Cohen, calling him an "honest, honorable lawyer" on This Week in May. Davis released an audio recording on Tuesday night in which Trump appears to suggest to Cohen that a payment to suppress the former Playboy model Karen McDougal's story be made in cash.

Trump Jr. told congressional investigators he did not tell his father about the meeting beforehand, according to documents released by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Cohen recently turned to prominent attorney and lobbyist Lanny Davis, a long-time associate of Bill and Hillary Clinton, to represent him.

Rudy Giuliani, Trump's attorney, furiously denied the new reports in an appearance on CNN late Thursday, arguing that Cohen is a "pathological liar" who can not be trusted. "I don't see how he's got any credibility".

In unnerving news for the Trump family business, Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg has officially been subpoenaed to testify in the criminal investigation into Michael Cohen's financial dealings. "We are very confident of the accuracy and reliability of the information that has been provided by Mr. Trump, Jr., and on his behalf". He's under scrutiny by federal prosecutors in Manhattan after Mueller referred Cohen's case to them. The Times also reported in June that Trump personally dictated a misleading statement about the goal of the meeting, even after his aides repeatedly denied that he did so. They met with a lawyer linked to the Kremlin and a Russian businessman who initially had offered to disclose dirt on Clinton.

Trump's knowledge of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting was first reported Thursday by CNN.

Giuliani, who is now serving as one of the president's lawyers asked, "How many of them did he play around with?" In June, The New York Times revealed that not only had the President known about the statement, but that he had dictated himself. "I can't speculate. But one thing is for certain is this doesn't look good, and people in the Trump ranks are talking about it".

Trump, who is accused at home of being too pliant toward Russian President Vladimir Putin, insists no president has been as "tough" on Russia and denies any collusion between his campaign and Moscow. He once said that he would "take a bullet" for Trump. Sekulow's response: "Yes, I swear".

A person familiar with the matter has confirmed to USA TODAY that Cohen is aware that Trump had advance knowledge of the meeting. They also note that two days before the meeting, Trump mysteriously announced plans to give a "major speech" about Clinton's scandals. "So tell me Rudy, why should we trust Trump's denials?"

"I did NOT know of the meeting with my son, Don jr." the president tweeted.
