Michael Cohen’s legal team has released a 12-page memo they provided Thursday to House Democrats, outlining evidence of what they describe as “Trump’s involvement in a conspiracy to collude with Russian government intervention in his favor during the 2016 presidential campaign” and “other felony crimes committed by Trump before and after he became president.”
This release comes two days after the New York Times reported that members of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team believe the details of the Mueller report are more damaging than Attorney General Bill Barr first indicated in his summary, which said Mueller’s team did not establish a conspiracy with Russia.
President Donald Trump says he is not concerned with the contents of Michael Cohen’s hard drive, as his former fixer attempts to enlist congressional help to delay his prison term. “No. They’ve already got it. He’s old news,” Trump told CNN’s Joe Johns at the White House Friday morning. “He lied numerous times during his last testimony,” Trump added. “They’ve had that for many months.”
