Trump Rages: Cohen Is Lying To Save His Own Skin

Mediaite reports:

President Donald Trump launched into a Twitter tirade early Friday morning taking shots at his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, suggesting he is “is trying to make up stories” to “get himself out of an unrelated jam.”

The tweetstorm started off on the topic of a New York Times report that Robert Mueller‘s Russia probe is looking at Trump’s tweets as part of the investigation into whether the president obstructed justice.

He then turned to CNN’s reporting that Cohen is claiming Trump knew in advance of the Trump Tower meeting between Don Jr. and Russians in 2016, despite his previous denials. The president suggested his personal lawyer is making up “stories”, to avoid a potentially perilous investigation into his business dealings.
