Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Pleads Guilty To Lying To Congress
It’s all falling down and we’re watching it in real time.
According to NBCNews, Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s lawyer and alleged shady fixer, has plead guilty to new charges brought on him by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. As you’re aware Mueller has been investigating the shenanigans that Russia is thought to have injected in the 2016 presidential election.
Michael Cohen has played a significant part in Trump’s business dealings in Russia and Mueller seems to have caught him lying to Congress about his involvement in getting a Trump Tower built in Moscow. Most of us are old enough to remember back to 2016 when Trump swore up and down that he had ZERO Russian business ties.
Cohen told Robert Mueller that Trump’s affairs in Russia ended in January 2016, when in fact, they continued months after that up to June 2016. According to The Guardian, these statements are thought to have been made specifically to protect Trump and impede Mueller’s investigation.
The ship looks like it’s sinking. Stay tuned.
