US President Donald Trump’s former lawyer has admitted that he lied to Congress during the investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Michael Cohen told a federal court that he had submitted a false written statement about the Trump Organization’s plan to build a tower in Moscow.
Trump says Cohen is “weak”, and lying to get a reduced sentence.
