Trump hits back at Cohen and ‘fake news’ over Tower meeting allegations — RT US News

The US president has lashed out at his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, after the latter claimed that Donald Trump knew in advance about a meeting between his son and a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower in 2016.

“NO,” Trump tweeted Friday morning. “I did NOT know of the meeting with my son, Don jr. Sounds to me like someone is trying to make up stories in order to get himself out of an unrelated jam (Taxi cabs maybe?). He even retained Bill and Crooked Hillary’s lawyer. Gee, I wonder if they helped him make the choice!”

In an article late Thursday, CNN quoted its usual anonymous “sources with knowledge” as stating that Cohen now claims that then-candidate Trump knew in advance about a meeting in Trump Tower, New York, between his son, Donald Jr, and “Russians,” who were reportedly expected to offer Trump dirt on Hillary Clinton.

According to the sources, Trump was informed of the meeting, and gave it the go-ahead. Cohen has no hard evidence, the sources say, but is willing to testify to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump has repeatedly denied knowledge of the meeting, and his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, told CNN on Thursday that Cohen is “a pathological liar.”
