Trump Operative Michael Cohen Pleads Guilty in Mueller Investigation

Former Donald Trump operative and attorney Michael Cohen has pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller’s “witch hunt” investigation.

According to reports, Cohen pled guilty to making false statements about plans to build a Trump Tower hotel in Moscow. He now admits to having worked on trying to get the deal made through June of 2016, a date that is much later than what he testified before Congress.

Cohen claimed in letters sent to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) on Aug. 28, 2017 that he ceased work on the Trump Tower Moscow project in January 2016. He also claimed that he did not make plans to visit Russia to further the deal or attempt to get Trump to visit Russia.

“In truth and in fact, and as COHEN well knew, COHEN’s representations about the Moscow Project he made to SSCI and HPSCI were false and misleading,” prosecutors said.

The complaint adds that Cohen lied to Congress to “minimize links between the Moscow Project” and Trump with an eye toward “limiting the ongoing Russia investigations.”

But now Cohen says that the Moscow Trump Tower project “was discussed multiple times within the Company and did not end in January 2016.”

“Instead, as late as approximately June 2016, COHEN and Individual 2 discussed efforts to obtain Russian governmental approval for the Moscow Project,” the complaint added. “COHEN discussed the status and progress of the Moscow Project with Individual 1 on more than the three occasions COHEN claimed to the Committee, and he briefed family members of Individual 1 within the Company about the project.”

Cohen is expected to be sentenced next month.

But notice what this “conviction” is not. It is not any proof that Trump (or even Cohen) did anything to “collude” with the Russians to affect the 2016 election.

Indeed, thus far the Mueller “investigation” has not revealed a SINGLE link between Trump — or anyone in his orbit — who seems to have “colluded” with Russians or Russian operatives to affect the 2016 presidential election.

So, Cohen lied about trying to set up a real estate deal.

So, frikking what?
