Eric Swalwell / Twitter) Rep.

U.S. Donald Trump President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and longtime fixer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty on Thursday to lying to Congress about Trump’s efforts to open a Trump Tower in Moscow. Cohen admitted that he had lied about the timeline of negotiations for opening a Trump Tower, and revealed that negotiations to launch the real estate project were still ongoing as late as June 2016. Trump had been floating the idea of building a Trump Tower Moscow since his first visit to Russia in the 1980s, but the project consistently fell through. It is now clear that Trump continued his efforts to build the tower while he was running for president. Here’s what we know about the timeline for the latest attempt to open a Trump Tower in Moscow: Trump was running for president in late 2015.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The date had been picked, the location too, and the plan was penciled in: President Donald Trump would be whisked from the White House to Camp David on a quiet winter Saturday to answer questions from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team. But as the Jan. 27, 2018, date neared and Mueller provided the topics he wanted to discuss, Trump’s lawyers balked. Attorney John Dowd then fired off a searing letter disputing Mueller’s authority to question the president. The interview was off. Nearly a year later, Trump has still not spoken directly to Mueller’s team — and may never. Through private letters, tense meetings and considerable public posturing, the president’s lawyers have engaged in a tangled, tortured back-and-forth with the special counsel to prevent the president from sitting down for a face-to-face with enormous political and legal consequences. The prolonged negotiation speaks to the high stakes for Trump, … [Read more...] about Inside Trump’s refusal to testify in the Mueller probe
