MSNBC: Michael Cohen Is Willing to Tell Mueller Trump Knew of 2016 Meeting with Russians

‘A knowledgeable source says the President’s former attorney is willing to tell the special counsel that Donald Trump Jr. told his father in advance of the meeting’

EXCERPT:

GEIST: "Let's get into the story here. Michael Cohen reportedly has a story to tell. NBC News has confirmed Cohen is willing to inform Robert Mueller that Donald Trump as a candidate knew about that 2016 meeting between Russians and his top campaign aides at Trump Tower. A knowledgeable source says the President’s former attorney is willing to tell the special counsel that Donald Trump Jr. told his father in advance of the meeting. Cohen’s claims first were reported last night by CNN whose sources say Cohen doesn’t have evidence to back up his story. CNN also reporting a source familiar with  Cohen’s testimony to the House Intelligence Committee says Cohen did not testify that Trump had advance knowledge, nor does that claim appear in either of the committee’s reports. Cohen lawyer, Lanny Davis, declined to comment, but reportedly told CNN, 'I have to wonder why the Trump people put that story out. It was not from us.' President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani had this to say."
