Thursday, news broke that ex-Trump fixer and longtime attorney Michael Cohen has completely turned on his former boss and is now singing like a canary about the Trump family business plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow — plans and business dealings which all took place during Trump’s campaign and well after his nomination.
For those of you who missed it, here’s a little rundown.
Cohen made it clear today that Trump most definitely had dealings with Russia while he was running for president and even after he was elected, which of course Trump denied in his usual cowardly fashion. He called Michael Cohen a “weak person” and claimed that he was lying to get a reduced sentence, which we all know is utter and complete B.S.
Well, now, it appears that Trump has even more reason to worry because Special Counsel Robert Mueller is zeroing in on the involvement of the Trump children, mainly Don Jr. and Ivanka.
According to Yahoo News:
‘Multiple sources have confirmed to Yahoo News that the president’s elder daughter, Ivanka, who is now a top White House adviser, and his eldest son, Don Jr., were also working to make Trump Tower Moscow a reality. The sources said those efforts were independent of Cohen’s work on the project. One of the sources said Ivanka was also involved in Cohen’s efforts. And a separate source familiar with the investigation told Yahoo News that Mueller has asked questions about Ivanka and Don Jr.’s work on Trump Tower Moscow.’
Mueller’s office declined to comment on the matter, but one Yahoo News source said:
‘Michael was looking at that deal. Don and Ivanka knew about it and Don testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he was peripherally aware of it. That’s why we’re so perplexed Cohen would lie about briefing them, because no one’s ever disputed that they knew he was looking at it.’
If what these sources say is true, and based on today, it’s likely that they are telling the truth, it looks like Trump’s entire family is definitely in Mueller’s sights.
Trump is running out of lies and excuses. He can no longer deny that he had dealings with the Russians, or that those dealings most definitely impacted his campaign. It remains to be seen what will happen, but we are looking forward to the fallout!
