U.S. President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen said that Trump knew in advance about a June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower at which Russians offered to provide damaging information about his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, CNN reported on Thursday.
"I think that Donald Trump Jr. said previous year, the meeting was about 20 minutes", said Scaramucci.
Those close to Mr. Cohen describe the lawyer as bewildered at the fast-moving events around him as he tries to look out for his family and make decisions about their future.
Meanwhile, Trump's current attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, has branded Cohen as a "liar" after a tape of him speaking to Trump about a hush payment to a former Playboy model. The statement is believed to be part of special counsel Robert Mueller's examination of whether Trump sought to obstruct justice.
CNNreported Thursday Trump's former longtime lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, claims Trump knew in advance about the meeting.
But the CNN tape clears Trump of wrongdoing in that matter, Giuliani argued. One of those is with the president of the United States.
Cohen says on the tape with Trump that he's already spoken about the McDougal-story payment with the Trump Organization's finance chief, Allen Weisselberg, on "how to set the whole thing up".
In his interview with ABC, Giuliani insisted that "there's nothing on [Cohen's recordings] that would concern us", though he said Trump's team has hired experts to review and analyze Cohen's tapes.
Before, Trump blasted his former attorney for the secret recordings, suggesting that doing so might have been illegal.
As David Graham of The Atlanticnotes, while the Trump Tower meeting between Don Jr. and a Russian lawyer, lobbyist, and businessman with ties to the government does not demonstrate collusion in itself, it shows a "willingness by top campaign officials to collude".
Cohen did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters. But he did not offer evidence to back up those assertions.
The president's "taxi" comment is a reference to Mr. Cohen's former business partner, Evgeny "Taxi King" Friedman, who recently pleaded guilty in a NY state court to a charge of tax evasion in a plea deal.
The president's son has said since that no "meaningful information" was offered and that the meeting focused mostly on adoptions of Russian children. Cohen claimed in February that he had paid Stormy Daniels, a porn actress who also has said she had a brief affair with Trump, $130,000 out of his own pocket, and Trump in April claimed he didn't know about the payment.
The incident in Missouri was part of a storm system that struck much of the Midwest late Thursday, according to meteorologists. A thunderstorm brought winds of 50 to 65 miles per hour to the area shortly before the first 911 call came in at 7:09 p.m.
According to one source, the meeting was kept private because Trump asked Putin to give him some time to consider the offer. Coats, being the top USA intelligence official that he is, of course reacted as if he hadn't been told a thing about it.
