Michael Cohen, a former lawyer for US President Donald Trump, said Trump approved the meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya during the election campaign, while the special prosecutor who conducted the Russian investigation was ready to testify to Mueller.
In an investigation of Russia’s intervention in the 2016 US presidential election, the circle for President of the United States, Donald Trump, is narrowing.
Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, claimed that during the election campaign, the American President approved a meeting with Russian lawyer Natalya Veselnitskaya to obtain information about Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton.
In June 2016, Donald Trump’s eldest son Trump Jr, his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort, who manages his election campaign, met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in Trump Tower, New York, claiming to have harmful information about Hillary Clinton.
TRUMP SAID THAT HE DİD NOT KNOW
“I was unaware of my son’s meeting with a Russian lawyer, so I learned it new,” he said. However, Cohen suggests that Trump is next to Trump when he has already heard of the Russian lawyer’s proposal and approves the call.
Cohen also said he was ready to testify to Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, who investigated Russia’s intervention in the 2016 US presidential election.
Veselnitskaya is Trump Jr. that they had nothing to do with Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, they were completely ‘special’. Since Trump was elected, she faces the assertion that Russia is trying to sabotage Hillary Clinton’s election campaign. (Euronews)
