All hell broke loose when Trump’s lawyer sold him out to Robert Mueller
Special counsel Robert Mueller believes he struck pay dirt.
Donald Trump’s lawyer has flipped and is willing to rat out the President to the special counsel.
Now all hell is breaking loose after the media reported what he is going to say.
The fake news media broke out in celebration when Trump attorney Michael Cohen made it known he is willing to tell the special counsel that Donald Trump had advanced knowledge of the infamous “Trump Tower meeting.”
Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, claims that then-candidate Trump knew in advance about the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower in which Russians were expected to offer his campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton, sources with knowledge tell CNN. Cohen is willing to make that assertion to special counsel Robert Mueller, the sources said.
Cohen’s claim would contradict repeated denials by Trump, Donald Trump Jr., their lawyers and other administration officials who have said that the President knew nothing about the Trump Tower meeting until he was approached about it by The New York Times in July 2017.
Cohen alleges that he was present, along with several others, when Trump was informed of the Russians’ offer by Trump Jr. By Cohen’s account, Trump approved going ahead with the meeting with the Russians, according to sources.
Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani blasted Cohen as a liar with no credibility.
CNN also reports:
“He’s been lying all week, he’s been lying for years,” said Rudy Giuliani, the President’s attorney, to Chris Cuomo on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” on Thursday night.
He added, “I don’t see how he’s got any credibility.”
Giuliani also said Cohen is “the kind of witness that can really destroy your whole case” and called Cohen, who was a top Trump Organization attorney for a decade, a “pathological liar.”
Cohen’s credibility is also undercut by the fact that the day the Trump Tower story broke, he applauded Donald Trump, Jr. for being honest and transparent.

President Trump also strongly denied the story and stated Cohen was fabricating his version of events so prosecutors investigating his business dealings will go easy on him.
…..I did NOT know of the meeting with my son, Don jr. Sounds to me like someone is trying to make up stories in order to get himself out of an unrelated jam (Taxi cabs maybe?). He even retained Bill and Crooked Hillary’s lawyer. Gee, I wonder if they helped him make the choice!

The other problem with the story was the Trump Tower meeting was a complete nothing burger of a story.
No dirt on Clinton changed hands.
And all parties – both from the Trump campaign and Russia – all testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee that the meeting was brief and about Russian adoptions and the Magnitsky Act.
There was no discussion of the 2016 campaign or collusion.
This is another manufactured story by Trump’s enemies in the fake news media to try and overturn the results of the 2016 election.
