BuzzFeed Reporter Responds To Trump's Anti-Cohen Tweet With Actual Facts
Donald J. Trump
Kevin Corke, @FoxNews "Don't forget, Michael Cohen has already been convicted of perjury and fraud, and as recently as this week, the Wall Street Journal has suggested that he may have stolen tens of thousands of dollars...." Lying to reduce his jail time! Watch father-in-law!
Leopold responded to the tweet by simply stating the facts.
"I don't see that there's any indication from the Southern District of New York that he's going to receive a reduced sentence, because he's already been sentenced to three years in prison," he said.
Leopold also pointed out that Cohen has already agreed to cooperate with the special counsel investigation and that Cohen even tweeted that it "knows all."
"I understand the attempts by the administration and the president himself to sort of shift the public's attention onto other areas ― Michael Cohen's father-in-law, [but] to be honest, I don't understand what that means," Leopold said.
Leopold said that it is understood that when Cohen's office was raided, the FBI and the special counsel obtained quite a bit of evidence, including emails and text messages.
He said this evidence corroborated earlier reports he has done on Trump's Moscow project.
"We obtained every single text message Michael Cohen exchanged with Felix Sater on the project. In those text messages, he's discussing briefing Trump," Leopold said, referring to the onetime Trump adviser who proposed giving Russian President Vladimir Putin an apartment in the Moscow tower.
