Trump Denies He Knew Beforehand of Meeting With Russian Lawyer

Trump Denies He Knew Beforehand of Meeting With Russian Lawyer

His comments come amid an ongoing political storm in the USA, where reports have emerged claiming that Mr Trump did know in advance about a meeting between his son and Russian agents.

President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani speaks to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, May 30, 2018.

Trump cast the news as part of a broader, unfair attack against him. "And now supposedly Cohen is willing to tell that to the special prosecutor, special counsel". "Gee, I wonder if they helped him make the choice!" the president tweeted Friday morning.

Cohen's own lawyer, Davis, has compared the Cohen tape to the Watergate tapes that ultimately forced Republican president Richard Nixon to resign in 1974 as impeachment loomed.

According to his friends, Cohen has been agonizing over hearing nothing from the President as he's being investigated and has been sending up flares this past month, signaling that his loyalty would be to his "family and country", not to Trump.

If Trump Sr. did indeed know about the meeting and approved of it in hopes of getting compromising information on opponent Hillary Clinton, "that could be collusion", Rivera said. But he has said since no "meaningful information" was offered and that the meeting focused mostly on adoptions of Russian children.

But even so, the word that could be said, "assuming Cohen is telling the truth now, is that Donald Trump lied back in 2017", Wallace said.

"Mueller has always been said to be interested in the circumstances of that statement, which denied that the meeting had dealt with campaign issues at all".

Yosemite National Park to close some areas due to fire
A Forest Service spokesman said the fire was relatively calm overnight as a heavy inversion layer kept fire activity to a minimum. East side of Highway 49 South from Darrah Road to Harris Road, which includes Boyer Road, Woodland Area, Wass Road, Tip Top Road.

Cohen wasn't at the Trump Tower meeting and Cohen has not offered evidence to support the claim that Trump knew about the meeting.

On Twitter Friday morning, Trump also lashed out at the Mueller probe and suggested, without evidence, that in fact it was Democrats and not his own campaign that had colluded with Russian Federation to interfere in the 2016 election.

Mr. Cohen now retains Washington lawyer Lanny Davis, a long-time Clinton ally. If true, it would also mean that Donald Trump Jr. lied about his father's knowledge of this to congressional investigators.

"An allegation that Trump was aware of the meeting might strengthen the allegations of obstruction of justice against the president".

"He can not be believed", Rudy Giuliani, a lawyer for Trump, said on Thursday, referring to Cohen.

Cohen, whose business dealings are being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has longtime dealings in the taxi industry and owns several medallions for New York City yellow cabs that allow them to pick up passengers on the street.

I suspect that a long line of presidents would dispute Trump's "tougher on Russia" claim, particularly Ronald Reagan.
