The White House apparently revealed the data of two court injunctions on Friday regarding President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen and his ex-campaign chairman Paul Manafort, with the former leading trump to declare “completely” cleared.
Judgment issued by the United States District Attorney for the Southern District of New York regarding the criminal investigation and the major jurisprudence in Coh’s personal business relations did not contain any new essential information, the Deputy Secretary of State Sarah Sanders said in a statement. 19659003] “The government’s applications in Cohen’s case tell nothing about value that was not known,” Sanders said. “Mr. Cohen has lied several times and, as the prosecutor has pointed out to the court, Cohen is not a hero.”
In the note, prosecutors recommended that Cohen received a “substantial” prison sentence. They also reduced their cooperation with the Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and said it had been “excessive”.
Cohen charged himself with multiple taxes on tax and business fraud. He also claimed to make an excessive campaign contribution and to make false statements to Congress about a deserted Trump property project in Moscow as part of Mueller Russia’s probe.

As regards the court case of Manafort, Sanders insisted that it said “absolutely nothing about the president.”
“It’s even less about collaboration and almost entirely related to lobby-related issues,” she continued. “Again, the medium tries to create a story where there is no one.”
In the heavily edited archive, the Special Council team claimed that Manafort violated its agreement by making false statements to investigators, including about his contact with the Trump Administration officials, as well as information relevant to an unexplained Department of Justice’s investigation.
“The defendant has violated his agreement on action in several ways by lying to the FBI and Special Counsel’s Office,” said filing.
Manafort’s defense team has denied the prosecutor’s claims that he violated the terms of his prosecution.
In response to the applications tweeted Trump : “Obviously the President. Thank you!”
Friday’s court documents also triggered reaction from others in the political sphere, including attorney Michael Avenatti, representing the adult movie star Stormy Daniels. “19659003” We are excited to see Michael Cohen is in great trouble re sentencing. We agree with the government that he will earn a significant prison, “Avenatti tweeted .” He lied to my client, the American people and the investigators for years. He is a dew and deserves to be punished hard. “

Cohns’s obligation to make an excessive campaign contribution was referring to $ 130,000 hush money payment to Daniels in the weeks leading up to the presidential election 2016 in exchange for her silence over an alleged sexual encounter with Trump. The question was also a payment to the Playboy model Karen MacDougal.
Avenatti also released a statement for himself and Daniels, thanking supporters while reflecting on their legal battle.
“Today, there is even more evidence that our efforts have brought us closer to realizing our goal,” Avenatti tweeted . “
President’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani told Fox News that the notes are a “complete exemption from the president”.
Although the Office of the Special Attorney said that Manafort lied to them about his business relations, Giuliani insisted that Manafort did not tell any lies about the president. He said that the contrast between Manafort and Cohen is that “Manafort has nothing to lie about” and “Cohen does not know what to relinquish.”
George Conway, married to White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, also commented on the matter, in direct response to Trumps tweet. “
” In addition to the small part where the US law firm says that you ruled and coordinated with Cohen to commit two felonies, Conway tweeted the president’s “clear” tweet. “Other than that, absolutely free of charge.”
