President Donald Trump is looking guilty and his personal lawyer is making matters much worse for both of them.
Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen has said that he will not cooperate with the Congressional investigators who are seeking information about the ties between Russia and the Trump organization. Cohen likely has important information about the Trump-Russia scandal, and his refusal to cooperate is extremely telling.
In the latest development, Cohen is now being asked to testify in from of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee. That is a major sign that investigators are on to something.
There have been several testimonies regarding the ongoing investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, but there is one coming next week that could be a game changer. Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, will testify before Congress on Tuesday.
During a segment on MSNBC, terrorism expert Malcolm Nance pointed out the significance of Trump’s attorney being called to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
‘If you compare Donald Trump to a mafia don, this is his consigliere. This is the guy who knows all the secrets.’
Unsurprisingly, there are several members of the Trump’s business and political organizations that are being examined by investigators.
[Campaign manager Paul] Manafort and [campaign adviser Roger] Stone recently handed over materials to lawmakers. Flynn has been denied an immunity request and has since invoked his Fifth Amendment right to reject a subpoena request for all his communications with Russian officials before the November election.
Cohen has remained close to Trump since leaving the president’s company in January. In April, the Republican National Committee named him to its finance leadership team. And Cohen traveled from New York to attend a White House meeting earlier this month with the president and other aides to discuss the administration’s approach to the Russia investigation.
Cohen has also found himself under the media microscope.
