Cohen to testify 'being in the room' when Trump, Jr. told his father about meeting with Russians: re




“Sometime in the summer of 2017, I read all over the media that there had been a meeting in Trump Tower in June 2016 involving Don Jr. and others from the campaign with Russians, including a representative of the Russian government, and an email setting up the meeting with the subject line, ‘Dirt on Hillary Clinton,'” he will reportedly testify.

“Something clicked in my mind. I remember being in the room with Mr. Trump, probably in early June 2016, when something peculiar happened. Don Jr. came into the room and walked behind his father’s desk – which in itself was unusual. People didn’t just walk behind Mr. Trump’s desk to talk to him,” the prepared remarks continue.

“I recalled Don Jr. leaning over to his father and speaking in a low voice, which I could clearly hear, and saying: ‘The meeting is all set.’ I remember Mr. Trump saying, ‘Ok good…let me know,'” the prepared testimony continues.

“What struck me as I looked back and thought about that exchange between Don Jr. and his father was, first, that Mr. Trump had frequently told me and others that his son Don Jr. had the worst judgment of anyone in the world,” the remarks note. “And also, that Don Jr. would never set up any meeting of any significance alone – and certainly not without checking with his father.”

14. And, trump is a famous micro-manager.


altho the irony of him calling his spawn stupid does not escape me, it is pretty clear that Trump has a laser focus on money, and thus anything that effects him making it.
