Somebodyís lying. Itís either Michael Cohen or Michael Cohen

It's a Tale of Two Cohens. Cohen vs. Cohen. On one side we have Michel Cohen. On the other side we have Michael Cohen.

They are in conflict with each other. Bigly.

Michael Cohen V.2018 claims that Donald Trump knew about the June 2016 meeting that Trump Jr. would attend.

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former personal attorney, claims that then-candidate Trump knew in advance about the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower in which Russians were expected to offer his campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton, sources with knowledge tell CNN. Cohen is willing to make that assertion to special counsel Robert Mueller, the sources said.

Cohen's claim would contradict repeated denials by Trump, Donald Trump Jr., their lawyers and other administration officials who have said that the President knew nothing about the Trump Tower meeting until he was approached about it by The New York Times in July 2017. Cohen alleges that he was present, along with several others, when Trump was informed of the Russians' offer by Trump Jr. By Cohen's account, Trump approved going ahead with the meeting with the Russians, according to sources.

This is what he brings to the table.
 To be clear, these sources said Cohen does not have evidence, such as audio recordings, to corroborate his claim, but he is willing to attest to his account.
Michael Cohen V.2018 has a problem. Michael Cohen V.2017.

Michael Cohen V.2017 previously testified to the contrary. In his own words:

First, I want to comment briefly but clearly on the presumed subject of this morning’s interview. Second, I want to address what I believe are the implications of it.

Let me be totally clear that I am innocent of the allegations raised against me in the public square, which are based upon misinformation and unnamed or unverifiable sources.

I have never engaged with, been paid by, paid for, or conversed with any member of the Russian Federation or anyone else to hack anyone or any organization.

I have never engaged with, been paid by, paid for, or conversed with any member of the Russian Federation or anyone else to hack or interfere with the election.

I have never engaged with, been paid by, paid for, or conversed with any member of the Russian Federation or anyone else to hack Democratic Party computers; and I have never engaged with, been paid by, paid for, or conversed with any member of the Russian Federation or anyone else to create fake news stories to assist the Trump campaign or to damage the Clinton campaign.

Given my own proximity to the President of the United States as a candidate, let me also say that I never saw anything – not a hint of anything – that demonstrated his involvement in Russian interference in our election or any form of Russian collusion.

I emphatically state that I had nothing to do with any Russian involvement in our electoral process.

That seems pretty clear. Then he added
As an attorney, I believe justice ought not to be politicized in the United States of America – neither in this Senate office nor in the courts. I’m certain that the evidence at the conclusion of this investigation will reinforce the fact that there was no collusion between Russia, President Trump or me.

I’m also certain that there are some in this country who do not care about the facts, but simply want to politicize this issue, choosing to presume guilt – rather than presuming innocence – so as to discredit our lawfully elected President in the public eye and shame his supporters in the public square … this is un-American.

Indeed. After Trump Jr. denied it and testified to that, Michael Cohen V.2017 praised Junior.

I am sure there were hundreds or even thousands of meetings. So what if he knew or didn’t know?

ITS STILL NOT ILLEGAL

This is the odd part of this for me. That meeting his son had, according to everything I was reading when it was the big story, was a big nothing. He was suckered into meeting, thinking he would get infor on Hillary, but they wanted to talk about something else, so he left.

Why is this meeting even relevant?

It sounds to me like this, AND the carter page meetings, AND another one Michael Caputo mentioned (and probably more) WERE ALL ATTEMPTS TO SET UP THE TRUMP TEAM!

And they all failed.

Yep. At first I wondered why his son would be so dumb, and then I realized that it is a big nothing, but it’s the best nothing they have. i.e. if it wasn’t this, it would be something else.

Which leaves a reasonable person to say, “Is that all you got?”

His son was smart enough not to go to this meeting alone.

If he had gone alone they would have been able to accuse him of ANYTHING with a female Russian honeypot
