Trump denies lawyer's Russian Federation collusion claim

Michael Cohen and Donald Trump

Cohen's choice of attorney and Davis' recent spate of media appearances have raised speculation Trump's former attorney is preparing to cooperate with Mueller.

McCarthy speculated that Cohen's new claim and reports that Mueller is now combing through Trump's tweets for evidence of obstruction of justice indicate "that the Mueller investigation is winding down to a conclusion".

Rivera said Cohen was somewhat of a "consigliere" to Trump, in that he was the "one key person we tell all of our life story to".

The meeting was between his campaign and Russians promising dirt on Hillary Clinton.

In a tweet he said, "I didn't know of the meeting with my - the meeting with my son Don Jr". In an interview on CNN Thursday night, Giuliani labeled Cohen a "pathological liar".

On the recording, released by Mr Cohen's attorney Lanny Davis, Mr Trump can be heard discussing with Mr Cohen how to hush up allegations that he had an affair with Playboy model Karen McDougal in 2006, and buying the rights to her story, which she had sold to the National Enquirer for US$150,000.

"Did you inform your father about the meeting or the underlying offer prior to the meeting?" He even retained Bill and Crooked Hillary's lawyer.

Rudy Giuliani, Trump's attorney, furiously denied the new reports in an appearance on CNN late Thursday, arguing that Cohen is a "pathological liar" who can not be trusted.

Trump says 'not thrilled' about interest rate hikes
Last month, the Fed raised its benchmark rate for a second time this year and projected two more increases in 2018. In an apparent reference to Fed rate increases, Mr Trump added, "Tightening now hurts all that we have done".

The president's "taxi" comment is a reference to Mr. Cohen's former business partner, Evgeny "Taxi King" Friedman, who recently pleaded guilty in a NY state court to a charge of tax evasion in a plea deal.

The New York Times first broke news about the meeting in July 2017. "If they rely on him.it would destroy whatever case they have". Trump Jr. answered as follows: "No, I did not".

Trump Jr., Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, and onetime-campaign chairman Paul Manafort met with Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya in Trump Tower in a meeting Trump Jr. arranged when he believed the Russian lawyer had damaging information about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Trump's primary residence at the time - Trump Tower - had a blocked number, according to separate testimony to the committee from former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

The facts surrounding the Trump Tower meeting have always been a point of interest.

"I think you're going to find it very informative and very, very interesting", Trump said. His father's promised June 13 speech never occurred, and no explanation was ever offered.

On Twitter, Trump called Mueller "highly conflicted" and sniped that he was 'looking at my Tweets (along with 53 million other people)'.

On Twitter Friday morning, Trump also lashed out at the Mueller probe and suggested, without evidence, that in fact it was Democrats and not his own campaign that had colluded with Russian Federation to interfere in the 2016 election. "How stupid and unfair to our Country".
