Trump also supported a plan, set up by Cohen, to visit Russia during the presidential campaign, in order to personally meet President Vladimir Putin and jump-start the tower negotiations. “Make it happen,” the sources said Trump told Cohen.

And even as Trump told the public he had no business deals with Russia, the sources said Trump and his children, Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr., received regular, detailed updates about the real estate development from Cohen, whom they put in charge of the project.

Now the two sources have told BuzzFeed News that Cohen also told the special counsel that after the election, the president personally instructed him to lie — by claiming that negotiations ended months earlier than they actually did — in order to obscure Trump’s involvement.

Even if Legitimate, the sources wouldn’t go to buzzfeed over bombshell news they would go to the NYT, Washington Post and CNN.

Cohen = b.s.

Notice another “leak” to try to create a fake weekend news narrative - when everyone is laughing at Dems on the bus to nowhere.

Now the lying media is resurrecting an absurd narrative from 2016, namely that Trump got into politics, not to be President but to help his real estate business, and to help his brand. Yeah, that’s it, Trump ran for President, so that if elected he could use all his influence to get good terms for building a hotel in Moscow - yeah, that’s the ticket!

Boring and trite.

These lies got stale a long time ago. They're hoping to all hell any fairy tale they make up sticks.
