Chuck Todd on Cohen’s Guilty Plea: ‘Cohen Told the Court that He Told All Those Lies for Mr. Trump’

‘And Cohen told the court that he told all of those lies for Mr. Trump, although he did not say he was directed by the president to lie’

EXCERPT:

TODD: “The President’s long time lawyer and self-proclaimed fixer, Michael Cohen, lied to Congress about Mr. Trump’s ties to Russia and today’s developments make you wonder if Bob Mueller is looking into a larger effort by the President to hide his business ties to Russia during the 2016 campaign. As part of Mueller’s investigation, Cohen has admitted in federal court today that he repeatedly lied to congressional investigators about the Trump Organization’s communications with Russia about a Trump Tower Moscow deal. Cohen said he lied about the duration of their talks with Russia, and that he lied about Trump and the Trump family’s awareness of what was happening with the deal. And Cohen told the court that he told all of those lies for Mr. Trump, although he did not say he was directed by the President to lie.”
