Michael Cohen assumed to attend the House and Senate Confidence Committees last week about the timeline regarding his work under Trump’s presidential campaign on a Russian real estate project. In his reply to the Congress, Cohen said that work on the project ended in January 2016.
Prosecutors argue that Cohen worked on the deal until as late as June 2016 when Trump was the presumptive Republican candidate for president.  “I’m glad to see the prosecutor take the specific crime seriously,” said Blunt.
The Supreme Democrat on the Chamber of Commons, however, suggested Sunday that if the President knew that Cohen had lied to Congress and the Kremlin knew if that could have resulted in Vladimir Putin and Russia’s government leaning over the president.
“One question has always been why the president was so obsequious to Putin from the start of the campaign until today,” said Jerry Nadler (DN.Y.), the “Meet the Press.” “It may be that it’s because the Kremlin has a leverage over the president, which is a terrible thing, if it’s true.”
