30 November, 2018, 01:36 | Author: Essie Rivera
By August, Cohen's celebrity lawyer Lanny Davis was teasing Cohen's alleged "knowledge" about "certain subjects that should be of interest to the special counsel", and stating that his clieng "is more than happy to tell the special counsel all that he knows" if Mueller gives him a good deal.
At issue is a proposal to build a skyscraper bearing Trump's name in Moscow.
But the document claims that Cohen "discussed the status and progress" of the project with Trump more than just on "the three occasions" he admitted to the Senate Intelligence Committee, and that he "briefed family members of Individual 1 within the Company about the project". "Today the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients", said Stephen Ryan, his lawyer.
Cohen pleaded guilty to making false statements to both the House and Senate Intelligence Committees. "This is a weak person and not a very smart person", Trump told reporters Thursday as he departed the White House on his way to the Group of 20 summit of global leaders in Argentina.
Trump speculated that "what he's trying to do is get a reduced sentence".
The new guilty plea in U.S. District Court marks the first time the office of the special counsel, Robert Mueller, has charged Cohen.
Federal prosecutors in NY began investigating Cohen after a referral from US Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has been investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible coordination with the Trump campaign.

When asked why he would hire Cohen if he's an untrustworthy and weak person, Trump said "a long time ago, he did me a favor". One possibility is that Cohen's testimony will be used to demonstrate perjury by Trump himself.
He said he also lied about his contacts with Russian officials and lied when he said he never agreed to travel to Russia in connection with the project and never discussed with Trump plans to travel to Moscow to support the project.
Mr Mueller, who took over the Russia investigation from the FBI in May 2017, has brought criminal charges against a series of former Trump aides and associates, including the President's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former national security adviser Michael Flynn, as well as Russian individuals and entities. "Michael Cohen is a liar", said Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
In the past few months, Trump has repeatedly criticized people who cooperate with federal investigations.
