According to BuzzFeed News, inside sources have said that President Donald Trump personally directed his at-the-time lawyer, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress when being testified about his Trump Tower Project in Moscow. More specifically, lying about any relations and discussions had with Russian authorities.
Michael Cohen, who was found guilty and jailed after it was revealed he lied to Congress, has declined all comments to BuzzFeed. He was found guilty in late November, and sentenced to three years in prison. Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani declined the action, saying: “If you believe Cohen I can get you a great deal on the Brooklyn Bridge.”
BuzzFeed has also reported that Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign supported a plan to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin for negotiations in Moscow. Although plans most likely fell through, other members of the Trump campaign might’ve played a role, although very minimal according to BuzzFeed News.
