Disgraced lawyer, Michael Cohen has caught himself between a rock and a hard place, after he said that President Trump knew about the meeting with the Russian lawyer at Trump Tower. You see, he can either maintain that Trump did know about the meeting, setting him up for a perjury charge.
Or he could say that he lied when he said that Trump did know about the meeting, blasting a huge hole in his credibility. Either way, he becomes useless to Mueller because no lawyer would put a known liar on the stand and risk the jury believing that the entire prosecution lacks candor.
Cohen told the Intelligence Committee that Donald Trump that he never saw candidate Trump do anything that demonstrated his involvement in Russian interference with the US election.
I have never engaged with, been paid by, paid for, or conversed with any member of the Russian Federation or anyone else to hack Democratic Party computers; and I have never engaged with, been paid by, paid for, or conversed with any member of the Russian Federation or anyone else to create fake news stories to assist the Trump campaign or to damage the Clinton campaign.
Given my own proximity to the President of the United States as a candidate, let me also say that I never saw anything – not a hint of anything – that demonstrated his involvement in Russian interference in our election or any form of Russian collusion.
I emphatically state that I had nothing to do with any Russian involvement in our electoral process.
When asked by reporters if he had a tape or other evidence that Trump knew about the meeting, Cohen admitted he did not. Mueller could not be a happy man today. So now we are left to wonder what angle the MSM will attempt next in the downfall of our POTUS.
