After his former attorney and devoted “fixer” Michael Cohen pleaded guilty for lying to Congress regarding efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, President Donald Trump snapped back at his former ally.

The President claimed that Michael Cohen was lying about being guilty of lying in order to receive a reduced sentence…for lying.

Trump said:

“He’s a weak person and by being weak, unlike other people that you watch, uh, he’s a weak person and what he’s trying to do is get a reduced sentence, so he’s lying about a project that everybody knew about, I mean we were very open with it.”

 

Watch the stunning video below.

Cohen pleaded guilty for lying to the FBI and paying hush money to two different women at the height of the 2016 presidential campaign in an effort to conceal their past affairs with then-candidate Trump. However, Cohen’s latest admission is brand new and comes as a surprise to many.

The President — who recently submitted written testimony to Special Counsel Robert Mueller regarding his campaign’s possible conspiracy with Russia — has increased his attacks on the entire investigation over the last couple of days.

These tweets and the statements from this morning lead many to believe that the walls are closing in on the President.

Cohen’s guilty plea today and Trump’s response is the most recent development in Mueller’s investigation after a previously quiet period ahead of the 2018 midterms.
