LEAKED: Here’s what Michael Cohen will reportedly testify against President Trump

LEAKED: Here’s what Michael Cohen will reportedly testify against President Trump”

"I did NOT know of the meeting with my son, Don jr." the president tweeted.

The president also hit Cohen over the attorney representing him, Lanny Davis, who was special counsel to former President Bill Clinton.

On Thursday night, Trump's current lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, called Cohen a "liar" in response to the report. "I would not accept him in a case as a witness, as a prosecutor", he added later.

Allen Weisselberg, CFO of the Trump Organization and a trustee of President Donald Trump's personal trust, was subpoenaed in an ongoing federal criminal investigation of Michael Cohen.

Sandra Smith reported that Cohen is prepared to tell Special Counsel Bob Mueller that Trump knew of the meeting and later lied about such knowledge. Donald Trump Jr.'s own emails and congressional testimony revealed that he was very eager about the prospect of receiving dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Federal prosecutors in NY are investigating Mr Cohen for possible bank and tax fraud, and for possible campaign law violations linked to a $130,000 ($AU169,000) payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels, a person familiar with the investigation said.

A person familiar with the investigation confirmed the CNN report to The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because the person wasn't authorized to speak publicly.

"Cohen's been lying all week, I don't see how he has any credibility", said Giuliani.

Trump. Jr. responded, "if it's what you say, I love it", and started to arrange the meeting. The payment to Daniels, who says she had an intimate relationship with Trump, was meant to buy her silence over the affair.

"He wasn't aware of it", Don Jr. said of his father during an appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee late a year ago.

"This to the point of whether or not there was any coordination with his father before, during, after that meeting, which was only one floor away in Trump Tower", MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell explained on Friday.

Cohen has no audio recordings or other evidence to corroborate his claim of Trump's advance knowledge of the meeting, CNN also reported.

It was set up after a Russian intermediary contacted Mr Trump Jr with a promise to provide material that would "incriminate" Hillary Clinton - the Democratic candidate in the 2016 presidential election. As we now know, Trump Jr. later acknowledged that it clearly wasn't just about adoption.

He frequently calls Mueller's probe of Russia's role in the 2016 election and whether the president obstructed it a "witch hunt, ' railing against the '13 angry Democrats" he claims lead it.

Trump complained that he had returned from a trip Midwest Thursday "only to be greeted with the ridiculous news" that Mueller and his team "cannot find Collusion... so now they are looking at my Tweets (along with 53 million other people)".
