Trump attorney dismisses report alleging president told Cohen to lie to Congress; Dems call for investigation

Trump attorney dismisses report alleging president told Cohen to lie to Congress; Dems call for investigation | 18 Jan 2019 | A report alleging that President Trump instructed his former personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about a shuttered real estate deal -- to build a Trump Tower in Moscow -- drew a quick dismissal from Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, but had Democrats calling for an investigation. The allegations were detailed in a BuzzFeed report published Thursday night. It cited two unnamed federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation on the matter who said Cohen acknowledged to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office that he was instructed by Trump in 2017 to lie to Congress about negotiations to build the tower in Moscow. "If you believe Cohen, I can get you a great deal on the Brooklyn Bridge," Giuliani said in response to the report.
