Democrats planning new lines of investigation into Russian Federation claims

Donald Trump says Michael Cohen testified there was no collusion — he did not say that

Michael Cohen, U.S. President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer, becomes emotional as he finishes a day of testimony to the House Oversight and Reform Committee in Washington, Feb. 27, 2019.

On Thursday, Elijah Cummings, the head of the House Oversight Committee that grilled Michael Cohen Wednesday, announced that he meant to speak with the president's eldest son and daughter, after Cohen claimed that both Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump had been briefed "approximately 10" times about the Trump Tower Moscow project.

While Cohen told the House Oversight Committee that President Donald Trump was a "racist", a "conman", and a "cheat", his proposed book offered glowing praise and specifically said that Trump wasn't a "liar".

Democrat Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said Cohen would return for further questioning next Wednesday to give lawmakers another chance to follow up on allegations of wrongdoing that Cohen leveled at his former boss this week.

Cohen spoke to the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday and is scheduled for another closed-door session on March 6. It was the last of three appearances before Congress this week for Cohen, who pleaded guilty previous year to lying to Congress.

Cohen was more direct: "I know what Mr Trump is".

In New York, for instance, Mr Cohen said he was co-operating with the US Attorney's office in Manhattan on "several other issues of investigation".

Some of the most damaging disclosures may relate to Trump's financial information. According a copy of the proposal obtained by the Daily Beast, the book would have chronicled Cohen's time as the Trumps' "family fix-it guy". "He went about 95 percent instead of 100 percent", Mr. Trump told reporters in Hanoi.

"He did and he made the decision", Trump said to Hannity.

Mr Cohen also said Mr Trump directed him to arrange the hush money payment to Ms Daniels.

Trump repeated his call to "stop this corrupt and illegally brought Witch Hunt" and said prosecutors should start looking at Democrats "where real crimes were committed".

Neal had earlier suggested he might wait until the end of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Trump and Russian Federation. Trump said he was a "little impressed" that Cohen had said that to the House Oversight and Reform Committee. He submitted a statement in 2017 saying efforts to build the tower had ceased by January 2016, when those talks in fact continued until June of that year, after Trump had clinched the Republican presidential nomination.

Cohen testified that Weisselberg told him he'd be reimbursed for the payment in 12 monthly installments totalling $420,000, which included a bonus and covered some of Cohen's taxes and other work he'd done for Trump. "I will not sit back, say nothing and allow him to do the same to the country". Sater also reportedly worked on securing Trump Tower Moscow, which Schiff and fellow Intelligence committee Democrats will test him on.

At one point, Krishnamoorthi asked Cohen to describe the last communication he had with Trump or "someone acting on his behalf".

In addition to Special Counsel Robert Mueller and other federal prosecutors, several USA congressional committees are pursuing investigations focusing on President Donald Trump, looking at questions regarding Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election as well as the Republican president's finances.

As well, Jordan and Meadows wrote, Cohen lied about creating a pro-Cohen Twitter account (@WomenForCohen), payments to porn star Stephanie Clifford, and whether he violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
