(Reuters) - Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer, informed Trump about a conversation he had with the Kremlin seeking help to build a skyscraper in Moscow in 2016 during the U.S. presidential campaign, according to a court filing. Cohen also “remained in close and regular contact with White House-based staff and legal counsel” to Trump while preparing false statements to Congress about his contacts with Russia, Cohen’s lawyer’s said in the filing to a Manhattan federal judge late Friday.

know what they call that. right ?

1752. Subornation Of Perjury
The filing doesn't go so far as to say there was coordination between Trump's legal team and Cohen on what Cohen would tell Congress, but it says the campaign finance and false statement allegations are addressed together "because both arose from Michael's fierce loyalty to Client-1. In each case, the conduct was intended to benefit Client-1, in accordance with Client-1's directives."

No one believes anything Cohen says after his admissions. No one would ever call him as a witness as he is an admitted perjurer.

We have 2 people that say Mueller wanted them to lie to get plea deals. This whole investigation is based on lies and corruption by Mueller

how would other people lying get Cohen a plea deal? Are you sure you're not talking about Manafort?

That is the point. Others are saying they would have to spew Muellers lie to get plea deal. This should tell us Cohen is saying what Mueller is telling him even though it is a lie

that would be witness tampering if they had proof. Do they have any?
