President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen is expected to enter into a plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller for making false statements to congressional investigators about his contacts with Russians during the 2016 campaign, ABC News reports.
Cohen’s earlier plea deal with federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York implicated President Trump in campaign finance felonies. Since then, Cohen has spent more than 70 hours in interviews with Mueller’s team.
New York Times: “At the court hearing, Mr. Cohen admitted to making false statements to Congress about his efforts to pursue a Trump Tower deal in Moscow during the 2016 presidential campaign. That real estate deal has been a focus of the special counsel investigation into whether the Trump campaign conspired with Russian operatives.”
CNN reports that Cohen said in court documents that discussions of Trump Tower Moscow project continued into June 2016 and that he briefed Trump and family members on the project multiple times.Save to Favorites
