Special counsel Robert Mueller’s witch hunt against Donald Trump has taken a shocking twist.
A former Trump insider has stepped forward with a shocking claim.
And this bombshell report pushed the impeachment talk into overdrive.
Pundits had been predicting for weeks that Trump attorney Michael Cohen would flip on the President.
Cohen is being investigated for his taxi medallion business and possible campaign finance violations by prosecutors in the Southern District of New York.
The former Trump organization “fixer” has been dropping hints that he was no longer loyal to the President and was looking to save his own skin.
And he finally revealed his true colors.
Sources close to Michael Cohen claim he is willing to tell special counsel Mueller that Donald Trump was informed about an offer made by a music producer to Donald Trump, Jr. to meet with a Russian lawyer promising dirt on Hillary Clinton.
CNN exclusively reported:
Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, claims that then-candidate Trump knew in advance about the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower in which Russians were expected to offer his campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton, sources with knowledge tell CNN. Cohen is willing to make that assertion to special counsel Robert Mueller, the sources said.
Cohen’s claim would contradict repeated denials by Trump, Donald Trump Jr., their lawyers and other administration officials who have said that the President knew nothing about the Trump Tower meeting until he was approached about it by The New York Times in July 2017.
Cohen alleges that he was present, along with several others, when Trump was informed of the Russians’ offer by Trump Jr. By Cohen’s account, Trump approved going ahead with the meeting with the Russians, according to sources.
But there is a lot of cold water to throw on this story.
First of all, CNN also reported that Cohen has no evidence to back up his claim.
There are no audio recordings that corroborate his account.
Second of all, Cohen is under federal investigation for his taxi medallion business.
That gives Cohen motive to lie.
And CNN reported that Cohen is willing to tell his story to Robert Mueller in the hopes that it will lessen the legal jeopardy he finds himself in.
Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani appeared on Chris Cuomo’s CNN show and ferociously attacked Cohen’s credibility.
Giuliani denied any such meeting ever took place and repeatedly blasted Cohen as a liar.
“[Cohen] is the kind of witness that can really destroy your whole case,” the President’s lawyer stated.
Indeed when the story initially broke about the Trump Tower meeting with the Russian lawyer – who offered no dirt on Hillary Clinton – Cohen tweeted his support for Donald Trump, Jr. being honest and transparent about what took place.
So proud of @DonaldJTrumpJr for being open, honest and transparent to the American people. This nonsense needs to stop!
The Trump Tower meeting is another nothing story the media is blowing out of proportion because every angle they pushed to get rid of Donald Trump failed.
All the participants who testified about the meeting to the Senate all gave the same story –the meeting did not last long, it was about Russian adoption and there was no discussion about collusion in the election.
Anti-Trump journalists in the fake news media will surely try to make this Nixon ordering Haldeman to orchestrate the Watergate cover up, but Americans should not trust this dishonest partisan spin.
