NEW YORK (AP) — Michael Cohen pleads guilty to lying to Congress about Trump real estate project in Russia.
Add...
Trump attacked the Mueller investigation in three tweets this morning, calling it a "witch hunt" just hours before his former personal lawyer reportedly pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about a Trump real estate project in Russia.
Add...
In testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee, Michael Cohen played down the extent of his contact with the Kremlin about the potential Trump Tower project and made other false statements about the negotiations, according to Mueller.

Important context for today's news.

Paul Manafort, asked in July 2016 if Trump has any business interests with Russian oligarchs
Add...
Michael Cohen was apparently still discussing the Trump Tower Moscow project in the same month (June 2016) as the infamous Trump Tower meeting with Russian nationals.
Add...
Of note in this passage: Michael Cohen  "briefed family members of Individual 1 within the Company about the [Moscow] project."

Cohen previously identified individual one as Trump.
Add...
These are great for the golf course
Add...
Cohen plea indicates that he successfully reached an aide to President Putin in January 2016 after he emailed Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov for help on a Trump Tower Moscow deal. He had insisted he emailed a general address and never heard back. washingtonpost.com/politics/top-t…
Add...
Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying about:
* The timing of the Moscow project
* Discussions with people in the Trump Org. and Russia about the Moscow project
* Contemplating travel to Russia in connection with the Moscow project
Add...
It seems from Michael Cohen's plea that Putin's office did in fact respond to Cohen in January 2016 when he reached out about the Trump Tower Moscow project. Cohen had said he never heard back. The Kremlin said it had never responded.
Add...
Trump says his former lawyer Michael Cohen is a "weak person" who is "lying" to get a reduced sentence.

"I made these misstatements to be consistent with individual 1's political messaging and out of loyalty to individual 1," Cohen said in court, according to Reuters.

He previously identified individual one as Trump. af.reuters.com/article/worldN…

Reminder of a Felix Sater email sent to Michael Cohen in 2015:

"Buddy our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it," Sater wrote. "I will get all of Putins team to buy in on this, I will manage this process."

Remember one of the questions Mueller reportedly wanted to ask Trump: "What communication did you have with Michael D. Cohen, Felix Sater and others, including foreign nationals, about Russian real estate developments during the campaign?" nytimes.com/2018/04/30/us/…

Guiliani attacks Mueller in statement: "It is hardly coincidental that the Special Counsel once again files a charge just as [Trump] is leaving for a meeting with world leaders.. [Mueller] did the very same thing as [he] was leaving for a world summit in Helsinki."
Add...
Mark Warner: "There seems to be a trend here amongst so many of the [Trump's] closest allies, that they don't tell the truth. Although, you've also got a White House that seems on a daily basis not to have its facts straight." (via CNN)
Add...
Jerry Nadler: "[Trump] can pretend that this investigation has nothing to do with him and nothing to do with Russia, but these indictments speak for themselves."

Trump supposedly cancels meeting with Putin, citing Russia's seizure of Ukrainian vessels.

The Kremlin says it has not been notified of a cancellation of the much-anticipated meeting between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump.

Investigators obtained emails about the Trump Tower Moscow project from late 2015 and January 2016, WSJ reports, in which Cohen communicated with or copied Don Jr. and Ivanka Trump. Ivanka Trump recommended an architect, the people said. wsj.com/articles/micha…

Any info shared after Manafort began cooperating isn't protected by a joint defense agreement, Joyce Vance says.

Joyce Vance: "The whole idea that we are talking about a president having a joint defense agreement with 32 other people — because they are all under criminal investigation — is not normal, and we can't let it become normal." nbcnews.com/politics/justi…
