Trump Calls Michael Cohen a “Weak Person” and a Liar After Cohen Pleads Guilty to Lying to Congress (VIDEO)
President Trump called his former lawyer-turned-rat Michael Cohen a “weak person” and a liar on Thursday after Cohen pleaded guilty to making false statements to Congress.
Michael Cohen pleaded guilty Thursday morning to a new charge of lying to Congress after getting squeezed by Mueller.
The Cohen guilty plea to false congressional testimony developed from a criminal referral Democratic Sen. Mark Warner sent to Mueller. So there you go

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.
In early 2016 Michael Cohen was discussing plans to develop a Trump Tower in Moscow, however Donald Trump decided not to move forward with the project.
There is nothing illegal about Trump planning to build a Trump Tower in Moscow and his plans were already known to the public, but the Deep State and fake news media need their ‘Trump-Russia’ headlines, so here we are.
The President blasted Michael Cohen as he was preparing to board Air Force One for a long flight to Argentina for this weekend’s G-20 Summit.
“I didn’t do the project. I decided not to do it. Michael Cohen–what he is doing is he was convicted I guess…you’ll have to put it into legal terms–on things totally unrelated to the Trump organization, on things related to mortgages, on things unrelated to us,” Trump said.
“He’s a weak person and by being weak what he’s trying to do is get a reduced sentence. He’s lying about a project that everybody knew about. i decided ultimately not to do it but if I did do it there would be nothing wrong.”
“When I run for president, that doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to do business. After I won, that means I’m not allowed to do business…but I ran a business – I often joke about the fact that I was the only person who campaigned and simultaneously ran a business,” Trump added.

Once again Mueller is harassing President Trump as he is leaving the country for an important summit.
The President decided to cancel his previously scheduled meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
….in Argentina with President Vladimir Putin. I look forward to a meaningful Summit again as soon as this situation is resolved!
