    Michael Cohen pleads guilty, says he lied
    about Trump's knowledge of Moscow project

    (CNN) President Donald Trump spoke with Michael Cohen more extensively about the proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow than Cohen previously told Congress, Cohen admitted in federal court Thursday.


    Cohen, Trump's former lawyer, pleaded guilty Thursday to making false statements to Congress about the Russia investigation in a charge brought by special counsel Robert Mueller.

    Cohen had previously said talks about the Moscow project had ended in January 2016 just prior to the Iowa caucuses.

    The Cohen revelations are potentially significant because they appear to show that Trump was engaged in business dealings with Russia in the midst of a campaign in which Moscow interfered to help elect him.

    It could also intersect with other information that Mueller knows to create political and legal jeopardy for the President.


    Cohen waived his right to an indictment when he appeared in a New York federal court.

    "In truth and in fact, and as Cohen well knew, Cohen's representations about the Moscow Project he made to (House and Senate intelligence committees) were false and misleading," Mueller's office said in a court filing.

    "Cohen made the false statements to ... give the false impression that the Moscow Project ended before 'the Iowa caucus and....the very first primary,' in hopes of limiting the ongoing Russia investigations," the filing adds.

    Trump responded to Cohen's admission at the White House Thursday, calling his former lawyer "very weak."

    "He's a weak person," Trump said before departing for Buenos Aires, Argentina.

    "He was convicted with a fairly long-term sentence with things unrelated to the Trump Organization," Trump said, citing Cohen's legal issues with mortgages and the IRS.

    "What he's trying to do is get a reduced sentence," Trump said.

    The charge to which Cohen pleaded carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000 and supervised release of not more than three years. Sentencing has been set for December 12.

    Cohen left the courthouse without making a statement.

    This story is breaking and will be updated.

    Report: Trump Org. planned to give Putin $50 million penthouse in Trump Tower Moscow

    During the 2016 campaign, the Trump Organization wanted to give Russian President Vladimir Putin a $50 million penthouse in Trump Tower Moscow, four people with knowledge of the matter told BuzzFeed News.

    Two law enforcement officials said Michael Cohen, President Trump's former personal lawyer and fixer, met with a representative of Putin's press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, to discuss the plan. Real estate promoter Felix Sater told BuzzFeed News he worked on the plan with Cohen, and they thought if Putin was in Trump Tower Moscow, wealthy oligarchs would follow. Trump Tower Moscow was never built. On Thursday, Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to the Senate about Trump's business dealings in Russia.

    Gloria Dawe Bruce But .... WHEN will his “FANS" .... accept that Trump has been lying to them all this time and he is not the "second coming of Christ" as many of the lunatic Evangelical Christians have claimed.
