Michael Cohen hints that Donald Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting with Russians because “everything is run through Mr. Trump.”
During an interview on ABC News Good Morning America, Cohen told host George Stephanopoulos, “I don’t think there is anybody that believes that. First of all, nothing at the Trump Organization was ever done unless it was run through Mr. Trump.”
“He directed me to make the payments, he directed me to become involved in these matters,” Cohen said.
“He knows the truth. I know the truth. Others know the truth,” Cohen said. “And here is the truth: People of the United States of America, people of the world, don’t believe what he is saying. The man doesn’t tell the truth, and it is sad that I should take responsibility for his dirty deeds.”
Cohen did not specifically go into details about the Trump Tower meeting, but the fact that he says everything is “run through Mr. Trump” says it all.
The Trump Tower meeting was attended by Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort to get dirt from the Russians on Hillary Clinton.
