FRIDAY – 11/30/18
Former Trump Campaign Attorney Michael Cohen has pleaded guilty for lying under investigation for an alleged Trump Tower project in Moscow. Many prospects and journalists are calling this a major decision of Robert Mueller, head of the investigation into the Trump Campaign’s ties with Russia.
Months ago, Cohen had a testimony in front of Congress under oath for allegedly cooperating with the Russians in an effort to finalize a deal to build another Trump Tower in Moscow, and later admitted to Mueller that he had lied under oath about said deal.
As the Mueller investigation itself is drawing to a possible closure, there are still many questions that are still to be answered, including whether Trump himself or another closely related staffer or campaigner worked with Russia. President Trump tweeted, “This is an illegal Hoax that should be ended immediately,” late yesterday, as both sides of the aisle are voicing their opinions on the matter.
