Type: Disdain for Rule of LawJan 17 2019 Severity: Targeted: Michael CohenAbout: Russia
Donald Trump ordered his longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about his negotiations involving his long sought after Trump Tower Moscow project. Cohen later plead guilty for lying to Congress, but this is the first time Trump himself has been directly implicated in Cohen's crimes. The explosive revelation came after the Special Counsel interviewed "multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents." If true, this means that the President of the United States knowingly committed a felony.
