This report is so critical that late Thursday night, Former Attorney General Eric Holder tweeted that if the BuzzFeed report is true — “and proof must be examined” — then Congress must initiate impeachment hearings. Holder has been one of the major voices in stark opposition of the Trump Administration (see tweet below).
RECENT TWEETS FROM ERIC HOLDER
Buzzfeed says its report is based on testimony from two unnamed law enforcement officials involved in investigating the matter.
The story alleges Mr.Trump, his daughter Ivanka and his son-in-law Jared Kushner received regular updates about a plan to build a Trump development in Moscow at a time when they denied having business ties to Russia.
Special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating alleged Russian interference in the US presidential election, and if Trump campaign figures were complicit, has already revealed that Cohen lied about the date the Moscow Trump Tower project ended.
Cohen told Congress talks over the plan took place between September 2015 until January 2016 but criminal complaint documents have said they lasted until June.
Cohen claimed the plan was halted earlier in an attempt to “minimise links between the Moscow Project and Individual 1” during the election campaign.
Individual 1 has previously been identified by Cohen as Mr. Trump.
Buzzfeed says, Cohen has told investigators that Mr. Trump “personally instructed him to lie” about the date negotiations ended “in order to obscure Trump’s involvement”.
