Michael Cohen pleads guilty to lying to Congress


(Worthy News) - President Trump’s longtime “fixer” Michael Cohen pleaded guilty Thursday to charges of lying to Congress and now says the president’s business empire was pursuing a deal with Russia even during the heart of the 2016 presidential campaign as that country was trying to interfere in the election.

In a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller, Cohen admitted he misled lawmakers last year when he told them his attempts on behalf of the Trump Organization to build a Trump Tower in Russia ended in January 2016 and that he never talked about having Mr. Trump travel to Moscow.

In court documents filed Thursday, though, Cohen said his efforts on what was known as the “Moscow project” lasted at least until June 2016, he planned a Moscow trip for himself and was working on one for Mr. Trump for later that year, possibly after Mr. Trump claimed the Republican presidential nomination at the party’s national convention.

  1. Hmmm, but Trump wasn't President when he was campaigning. He was just campaigning. OK, I'm sorry, but since you're looking for a new job, you have to quit you're old job while you're looking. ...... Is that OK with you?
