The president tried to brush off the news Thursday morning that Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about efforts to build a Trump Tower Moscow with Kremlin officials.
Cohen said he did so out of loyalty to the president.
In response to this plea Trump called Cohen a ‘liar’ and ‘weak’.
Whenever threatened it’s Trump’s instinct to lash out.
But this attack made little sense.
Cohen is admitting that he lied — and now he says he’s telling the truth.
Meanwhile Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani is saying that the president’s answers about Trump Tower Moscow given to Mueller ‘match’ Cohen’s.
But if that’s true (which is highly doubtful) then that means it’s the Trump team’s official position that Cohen is being honest now when he gives his account of the Trump Tower Moscow project — which means he was lying to Congress earlier – at a time when he was still working for Trump and serving his interests.
So in their desperation to respond to this story the Trump team is providing incoherent and damaging answers.
