Cohen'sguilty plea on Thursday may signal his hope for a lighter sentence in exchange for continuing his cooperation with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether Trump colluded with Moscow. His lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said that Cohen was a "proven liar" and that Trump's business organization had voluntarily given Mueller the same documents cited in the guilty plea "because there was nothing to hide". Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team determined that, in fact, discussions of the deal extended well beyond that - as late as June 2016, the filing says.
"These developments make clear that my colleagues and I must step in and provide accountability", said Nadler (D-NY).
According to the criminal information filed by Mueller's office, which refers to Trump as "Individual 1", Cohen falsely told both congressional intelligence panels that "the Moscow Project ended in January 2016 and was not discussed extensively with others in the Company", that he "never agreed to travel to Russia in connection with the Moscow Project and "never considered" asking Individual 1 to travel for the project", and that he "did not recall any Russian government response or contact about the Moscow Project".
Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary committee he was not aware of Cohen's outreach to the Kremlin's press office, and reiterated that he was "peripherally aware" of the deal at the time, but that "most of my knowledge has been gained since". He said they were "very brave" for resisting Mueller's investigation. He was perfectly within his rights to continue to run his businesses even as he pursued the presidency, he said.
As he left the White House shortly after the court proceeding concluded, Trump called Cohen "a weak person".
"This was a deal that didn't happen", Trump said of the purported real estate project.

He has also spread an unproven and unsupported theory that Mueller's team is coercing people close to Trump to lie about him to bring down his presidency. He said sentencing in the case is scheduled for December 12.
