Cohen Pleads Guilty to Lying to Congress in New Deal With Mueller After 70 Hours of Testimony

President Trump’s former lawyer-turned-rat Michael Cohen pleaded guilty Thursday morning to a new charge of lying to Congress after getting squeezed by Mueller.

Cohen’s previous plea deal with federal prosecutors in the SDNY focused on finance felonies; he pleaded guilty to six felonies related to his personal business in August.

Then Mueller interrogated Michael Cohen for 70 hours about the Trump campaign’s so-called contacts with Russians, Trump’s business ties to Russia, obstruction of justice and talk of possible pardons, according to ABC News.

It isn’t new news that Michael Cohen was discussing plans to develop a Trump Tower in Moscow, but the Deep State and fake news media need their ‘Trump-Russia’ headlines, so here we are.

ABC reported:

Special counsel Robert Mueller has reached a tentative deal with Michael Cohen, the former personal attorney and long-time fixer for President Donald Trump, sources told ABC News.

Cohen appeared in federal court in Manhattan Thursday where he entered a guilty plea for misstatements to Congress in closed-door testimony last year about his contacts with Russians during the presidential campaign.

Once among the president’s most loyal and zealous defenders in business and politics, Cohen has now promised to “put family and country first” by cooperating with prosecutors, becoming perhaps the most pivotal public witness against his former boss.

Sources familiar with the special counsel’s proposed agreement with Cohen told ABC News that the 52-year-old New Yorker will admit to making multiple misstatements to two congressional intelligence committees investigating alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. It was not immediately clear what Cohen told the congressional committees in the fall of 2017 that he will now say was false.

Robert Mueller is desperate to produce something-anything to do with Trump-Russia collusion after a year and a half and nearly $40 million wasted on his unconstitutional witch hunt.

Mueller must justify his salary so now he is reportedly coercing witnesses to lie in order to reach a plea deal–at least that is what Jerome Corsi is alleging.

Dr. Jerome Corsi, a conservative journalist who was put through 40 hours of hellish KGB-style interrogations by Mueller’s thugs says they are forcing him to lie so he stays out of prison.

None of the charges brought by Mueller have anything to do with ‘Trump-Russia collusion.’

Mueller has forced everyone into perjury traps then charges them for making false statements.

The President slammed Robert Mueller again Thursday in a pair of tweets.

On Wednesday, Trump fired off what many hope is a foreshadowing by retweeting an image of Mueller, Rosenstein and officials from Obama’s corrupt administration behind bars for treason.
