Cohen says Trump knew about Trump Tower meeting with Russians

Donald Trump is alleged to have had an affair with former model Karen McDougal

Federal investigators have gotten their hands on recordings of more than 100 phone calls made by Michael Cohen, the former lawyer and personal fixer for Donald Trump, the Washington Post reports.

It was set up after a Russian intermediary contacted Mr Trump Jr with a promise to provide material that would "incriminate" Hillary Clinton - the Democratic candidate in the 2016 presidential election.

"If you watch Chris Cuomo with Rudy Giuliani this evening, Donald Trump is now sucking Rudy Giuliani down into that giant swirling vortex because Rudy Giuliani looked awful doing everything he could to call Michael Cohen a liar", he said.

Donald Trump Jr. and others acknowledged the meeting after it became public knowledge, but downplayed it, saying the Russians involved had nothing of importance and wanted to push their own agenda.

CNN says Cohen doesn't have audio recordings or other evidence to corroborate his claim but is more than willing to swear to his experiences with the meeting under oath.

Alan Futerfas, a lawyer for the Trump Organization and Donald Trump Jr., told Reuters, "Donald Trump Jr. has been professional and responsible throughout the Mueller and Congressional investigations".

"I don't see how he has any credibility", Giuliani.

"I can not comment", Davis said. CNN, citing sources, reported Cohen didn't have proof that the president had foreknowledge of the meeting.

Cohen did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters.

Revelations of Cohen's possible testimony come just days after a 2016 recording of a conversation between Trump and Cohen appeared to show the president was informed of a payment created to prevent news of an alleged affair with a Playboy model from coming to light. She has alleged that she had a months-long affair with Trump in 2006.
