Former Trump adviser says Cohen has lost credibility with secret taping

US President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen said that Trump knew in advance about a June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower

US President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen said that Trump knew in advance about a June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower

Davis, who is Cohen's attorney, released audio last week featuring a conversation between Trump and Cohen about payments to a former Playboy model, Karen McDougal, who claimed she had a sexual relationship with Trump years prior. New York, where the taping reportedly took place, legally requires only one person's consent for such a recording.

US President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen said that Trump knew in advance about a June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower. He even retained Bill and Crooked Hillary's lawyer.

"Cohen alleges that he was present, along with several others, when Trump was informed of the Russians' offer by Trump Jr".

Half of Republicans say that hearing criticisms of President Trump on the Russian Federation issue makes them want to defend him more.

Jay Goldberg, another former Trump lawyer, argued Friday on CNN's "Erin Burnett Out Front" that Giuliani "immeasurably" damaged his case against Cohen with the sudden shift in tone.

Trump said in a Twitter post after a CNN report that his longtime lawyer Michael Cohen said Trump knew of the meeting in advance.

"You said Michael Cohen was very loyal and devoted to Trump", host Chuck Todd said to Nunberg.

Witness list for trial of Trump's former campaign chief released
If the judge rules in their favour, prosecutors could present evidence that delves deeper into Manafort's Russian connections. Short of an acquittal, the best hope for Manafort to avoid jail time remains a presidential pardon.

Lanny Davis, Cohen's attorney, told Newsweek that "the CNN leak did not come from us".

However, he pointed out that matters likely changed when Cohen's home and offices were raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and he does agree that there was probably more included on the released tape.

This contradicts his earlier statement that called Cohen an "honest, honorable lawyer".

"Arrived back in Washington last night from a very emotional reopening of a major U.S. Steel plant in Granite City, Illinois, only to be greeted with the ridiculous news that the highly conflicted Robert Mueller and his gang of 13 Angry Democrats obviously can not find Collusion...", Trump tweeted.

Trump complained that he had returned from a trip Midwest Thursday "only to be greeted with the ridiculous news" that Mueller and his team "cannot find Collusion... so now they are looking at my Tweets (along with 53 million other people)".

However, Giuliani said he himself was "not allowed" to release the tapes, which include what he said were "183 unique conversations", citing rules concerning the audio, which was among the materials seized from Cohen's office, home and hotel in NY in April amid a criminal investigation of Cohen by the United States attorney's office for the Southern District of NY.

Seventy percent of Republicans call the Russian Federation investigation a "witch hunt", while Democrats call it a "critical" matter of national security (77 percent). How stupid and unfair to our Country....
