New Mueller filing says Trump’s ex-lawyer Michael Cohen was in touch with a Russian seeking ‘political synergy’ with campaign
Quote:
Federal prosecutors said in a new court filing that President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen should spend significant time in prison — saying that while Cohen did provide useful information to investigators probing Russian interference in the 2016 election, he refused to disclose everything he knew.
Quote:
The filing was made Friday as Cohen prepares to be sentenced next week in two separate cases, one involving campaign finance violations and lying to a bank, and another in which he admitted to lying to Congress about efforts during the 2016 presidential campaign to get a Trump Tower built in Moscow.
Quote:
Cohen had asked for a sentence of no prison time, citing his cooperation with investigators, but prosecutors for the Southern District of New York filed a memo arguing that he should serve substantial time, possibly years, in prison.
Quote:
A separate sentencing memo filed by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III was somewhat kinder to Cohen, saying that while his crime was “serious,” he had “taken significant steps to mitigate his criminal conduct.”
Quote:
“He chose to accept responsibility for his false statements and admit to his conduct in open court. He also has gone to significant lengths to assist the special counsel’s investigation,” they wrote.
Quote:
The special counsel’s office credited Cohen with significant cooperation — including providing “useful information concerning certain discrete Russia-related matters core to its investigation that he obtained by virtue of his regular contact” with Trump organization executives during the campaign, as well as “relevant and useful information concerning his contacts with persons connected to the White House during the 2017–2018 time period.”
Quote:
They revealed that Cohen told them of what seemed to be a previously unknown November 2015 contact from a Russian national, who claimed to be a “trusted person” in the Russian Federation offering the campaign “political synergy” and “synergy on a government level.”
Quote:
Cohen told investigators the person, who was not identified, repeatedly proposed a meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladi*mir Putin, saying that such a meeting could have a “phenomenal” impact, “not only in political but in a business dimension as well,” the special counsel’s office wrote.
Quote:
Cohen, though, did not follow up on the invitation, because he was already working on a Trump project in Moscow through a different person he believed to have Russian government connections, the special counsel’s office wrote.

So just about an hour ago, Trump tweeted the following:

Totally clears the President. Thank you!
I have no idea what Individual 1 is referring to, but if in regards to today news then he's not paying even the slightest bit of attention.

Mind you it's Raw Story, but essentially he's right.
And one document of Flynn's released deal states at the heading "the 'corporation,' will refer to the Trump organization... "
