Pulitzer-winning reporter reveals ‘the one line’ in Cohen memo that tells us ‘how the special counsel’s office sees the world’

Quote:
On Friday, a flood of legal documents were filed with courts in the sprawling investigations into President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia during the 2016 campaign.

The documents have been parsed and re-parsed by reporters and analysts all evening

On Twitter, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter Michael S. Schmidt laid out the one line in the Cohen sentencing memo that he believes tells the story of how special counsel Robert Mueller sees the investigation.
Quote:
“Prior to testifying, the defendant made a public appearance at the U.S. Capitol and released his prepared opening statement, which falsely claimed that the Moscow Project “was terminated in January of 2016[,] which occurred before the Iowa caucus and months before the very first primary,” the line read.

This line from Mueller's filing on Cohen may tell us more about how the special counsel's office sees the world than anything else that was filed today. pic.twitter.com/ZqnSZnfmC4

— Michael S. Schmidt (@nytmike) December 7, 2018
Quote:
The filing goes on to explain why this is important: “By publicly presenting this false narrative, the defendant deliberately shifted the timeline of what had occurred in the hopes of limiting the investigations into possible Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election—an issue of heightened national interest.”

key facts from Steele Dossier confirmed
https://www.washingtonpost.com/opini...=.862d85faad07
Quote:
findings echo the dossier’s allegation that Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen had an “ongoing secret liaison relationship” with the Kremlin, including working to build a Trump Tower in Moscow into the middle of 2016 and lying about it.
Quote:
The new revelations about Cohen also show that the dossier correctly identified Putin lieutenants Dmitry Peskov and Sergei Ivanov as the ones managing the Trump campaign for the Russian government,
Quote:
(Peskov, who is now the Press Secretary for Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, has only recently admitted to his deep ties to Cohen)

The dossier said that in August 2016 Peskov was “scared sh*tless” about the hacking of the DNC being exposed and blamed on him.

Ivanov was a rival to Peskov, also a former KGB agent, and was fired in August 2016.
Quote:
five former Trump aides have now pleaded guilty in Mueller’s Russia probe, and many now see it as “perfectly plausible that Trump himself, as former aide Sam Nunberg put it, ‘may very well have done something during the election with the Russians.’”

Russians interacted with at least 14 Trump associates during the campaign and transition


Quote:
The Russian ambassador. A deputy prime minister. A pop star, a weightlifter, a lawyer, a Soviet army veteran with alleged intelligence ties.

Again and again and again, over the course of Donald Trump’s 18-month campaign for the presidency, Russian citizens made contact with his closest family members and friends, as well as figures on the periphery of his orbit.

Some offered to help his campaign and his real estate business. Some offered dirt on his Democratic opponent. Repeatedly, Russian nationals suggested Trump should hold a peacemaking sit-down with Vladi*mir Putin — and offered to broker such a summit.

In all, Russians interacted with at least 14 Trump associates during the campaign and presidential transition, public records and interviews show.

“It is extremely unusual,” said Michael McFaul, who served as ambassador to Russia under President Barack Obama. “Both the number of contacts and the nature of the contacts are extraordinary.”
manchurian or just a dope who got blackmailed?
same thing?
