Trump Knew About 2016 Meeting with 🇷🇺Russians Before It Happened Mike Cohen Asserts

Trump's former attorney asserts that Trump knew in advance about a 2016 meeting between his campaign staff and Russians who claimed to have compromising information on Hillary Clinton. A source reported that the attorney, Michael Cohen, says that President Trump was told ahead of time about the meeting by his son, Donald Trump Jr.

Cohen is willing to make that assertion to special counsel Robert Mueller. Mueller is investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin during the U.S. presidential election. U.S. intelligence services are in broad agreement that Russia directly interfered with the election. President Trump's current attorney, Rudy Giuliani, said that "Michael Cohen is not credible."

"Michael Cohen can't be believed unless it's corroborated five times," Giuliani said. "I talked to the president about this at length before as well as other witnesses and it's not true. Why would you expect it would be true from someone like Cohen? A lawyer who would tape their own client is a lawyer without any character." The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Donald Trump Jr. has repeatedly denied that he told his father in advance about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting. Trump Jr. agreed to the meeting at Trump Tower so that he could explore a Russian offer of supposedly damaging information on Democratic presidential candidate Clinton. His brother-in-law, Jared Kushner, and then-campaign manager Paul Manafort also attended that meeting in early June 2016.
