Geraldo: Former 'Consigliere' Cohen Could Represent a 'Significant Legal Threat' to Trump

Geraldo: Former 'Consigliere' Cohen Could Represent a 'Significant Legal Threat' to Trump

The meeting was attended by the president's son, Donald Trump Jr, as well as Paul Manafort, the former chairman of Mr Trump's campaign, and the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner.

After repeated denials from Donald Trump Sr. and Jr., CNN reported a bombshell that completely undermines the Trump administration's narrative about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russian operatives who offered dirt on Hillary Clinton.

"Businessmen listen to nearly everyone who might be helpful, and by the way, they make pragmatic decisions about how to make bad stories go away", Issa added.

When asked by Fox News host Maria Bartiromo if Cohen would testify before Congress again, Graham said he didn't know but that he is "tired of having President Trump tried in the media".

"I'm happy to tell Mueller that Trump wasn't at the Trump Tower meeting", Giuliani said.

The president's lawyers, Giuliani said, want their client to answer questions only on collusion - which he denies - and not obstruction of justice, which Mueller is investigating.

The role Cohen, a longtime personal confidant of Trump, might play in the Mueller probe is unknown.

Trump accused Cohen of "trying to make up stories" to help him escape criminal charges after his home and office were raided by federal law enforcement authorities. "But he claimed Trump still has a 'soft spot" for Michael Cohen, who Giuliani has been branding as a liar amid signals he may cooperate with Mueller.

As you watch Trump's defenders retreating over the horizon, a salient fact to bear in mind is that there are probably more revelations to come with regard to collusion.

Mr Cohen's reported claim comes days after the bombshell release of a taped conversation between him and Mr Trump by CNN Tuesday - with reports suggesting there may be more tapes. Trump Jr.'s first statement after the initial report asserted the meeting was only about adoption.

No evidence has publicly emerged that the Trump campaign has engaged in these activities, though special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is ongoing.

The leak fanned speculation about how much damage Mr Cohen can inflict on the president and whether he is now mulling a cooperation deal with federal prosecutors.

"(T) he rigged Witch Hunt continues!" he complained, adding: "How stupid and unfair to our Country".
