On Oct 25, Cohen Lies to Congress for Trump about Russia. CRIME: Lying to Congress (U.S. Code, title 18, section 1001). Cohen testifies to Congress and repeats the lies in the letter he released publicly 4 weeks earlier. Trump, Jr. and several others repeat the same lies to Congress.
Verified: We know Cohen lied because he confessed later in Dec 2018. We know Trump, Jr. and others told the same lies because several Senators have said publicly that all their accounts were the same, but now we know Cohen lied. We know this because of the Nov 9, 2018 nine-page filing where prosecutors laid out a litany of lies that Cohen admitted he told lawmakers in Congress about the Moscow project. Cohen said the lies were to minimize links between the proposed development and Trump as his presidential bid was gaining steam.
