Cohen turns over documents on Moscow project to House panel

Michael Cohen sues Trump Org alleging unpaid legal fees

"Today, Chairman Nadler opened up a disgraceful and abusive investigation into exhausted, false allegations already investigated by the Special Counsel and committees in both Chambers of Congress", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement on Monday.

CNN reported December 8, 2017, during the middle of Donald Trump Jr.'s testimony that he had received an email September 4, 2016, with a link of unreleased WikiLeaks documents. Cohen was on Capitol Hill for a fourth day of congressional testimony. Trump fired Comey in May 2017 while he was leading an investigation into Russian meddling in the election.

The committee was expected to discuss the subject in Cohen's second day before the committee, according to one of the people familiar with the meeting.

Beginning a sweeping investigation that could shadow Trump as he runs for re-election, the panel sent letters to 81 people asking a flurry of questions about Trump's activities before and after he was elected president. "They started their impeachment [effort] last Wednesday with Michael Cohen - Michael Cohen, their first announced witness of the 116th Congress", Jordan said. But that may not be the full story. The committee said there might be additional requests. "[The] January date for Trump Tower was in Cohen's original draft and was not edited by lawyers", said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of Cohen's testimony. Cohen did not participate in the conversation.

Lanny Davis, a Cohen representative, did not immediately return a request for comment. He acknowledged on MSNBC that Cohen "was certainly looking at the option of a pardon" before he chose to come clean and turn on Trump. But lawmakers have requested information about talks on possible pardons for Cohen and other defendants close to the president who have become entangled in Mueller's investigation.

The standard of refereeing on show was distinctly sub-par with two relatively obvious penalty shouts turned down for the Saints. Although the defence were guilty of giving away a late goal, the whole team can be proud of their efforts in Manchester.

Tlaib said during her news conference, "It's really important that the President of the United States is investigated in violations of the United States Constitution", highlighting, in particular, the emoluments clause, prohibiting gifts or benefits from foreign governments.

Now that Democrats hold a majority in the House, the new probe is a sign that Trump's legal and political peril is nowhere near over, even as the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation winds down. While Nadler said over the weekend "Impeachment's a long way down the road", he also said "it's very clear" to him that Trump committed obstruction of justice. That statement involved the timing of negotiations the Trump Organization had with Russian Federation over a Moscow real estate project.

The letters demanded documents that could shed light on possible wrongdoing by the administration and Trump himself.

A $35,000 check signed by President Trump to Michael Cohen is shown on a television monitor inside the hearing room as Cohen testifies on February 27. Cohen told a judge that he agreed to cover up Trump's "dirty deeds" out of "blind loyalty". But the implication of CNN's report is that Trump's lawyers potentially directed Cohen to lie to Congress. He said the president arranged to reimburse Cohen, and Cohen took to the hearing a check that he said was proof of the transaction.

He added: "Every time I think about this, I think about that particular issue because I think he really does care about his family, I think he loves his family, and I don't think he wanted his family to go through this".
