White House Says Latest Mueller Filings Do Nothing to Damage Trump

National Security Adviser Michael Flynn speaks during the daily news briefing at the White House in Washington. The special counsel in the Russia investigation is set to give the first public insight into how much

Mueller's filing did, however, acknowledge Cohen's help in the Russia investigation and also said that he has provided information about new contacts between Trump's presidential campaign and Russians, including outreach as early as November 2015 from people seeking to arrange meetings between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Manafort, who maintains he has been truthful with Mueller, managed Trump's campaign for three months in 2016.

The meeting did not take place.

In a heavily redacted court filing, Robert Mueller's office said Manafort lied about ongoing contacts he had with administration officials after striking a plea agreement; lied about a debt payment he made; and lied about dealings with Konstantin Kilimnik, a longtime Manafort business associate who U.S. officials suspect is a Russian intelligence operative. He also pleaded guilty to lying to Congress in a separate case handled by Mueller.

There is "no bigger warranty in any project than consent of (the president of Russia)", the person told Cohen.

Prosecutors working for the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY based in Manhattan asked a judge to impose a sentence that reflects a "modest downward variance" from the potential maximum of 63 months in prison that Cohen faces. They said his sentence should reflect a "modest" reduction from the four to five years they said federal guidelines would suggest.

Rudy Giuliani Blames Twitter For His Internet Ignorance
Because of how Twitter works, hyperlinks are automatically created when valid domains are written out in tweets. Many were eager to point out the accusation's flaws, drawing attention to Giuliani's cybersecurity background.

However, in the crimes to which he pleaded guilty in August, he was motivated "by personal greed and repeatedly used his power and influence for deceptive ends".

They said Cohen should receive some credit for cooperating with Mueller but noted he had not entered into a similar agreement with their office.

In a separate filing on Friday, Mueller outlined how Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, breached his plea agreement with Mueller and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The special counsel overseeing the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election detailed on Friday multiple "lies" that Donald Trump's former campaign chief Paul Manafort had told investigators, leading to a termination of his cooperation deal.

Trump repeated his criticism again on Friday and said on Twitter that his attorneys have already begun work on a rebuttal to Mueller in case the special counsel's report is damaging to Trump and becomes public. Russian Federation has denied meddling in the 2016 USA election. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders called Cohen a liar and dismissed the filings as insignificant.

Representatives for the U.S. Justice Department and Mueller's office declined to comment on Trump's tweets.
