Menendez Response to Report President Trump Instructed Cohen to Lie to Congress

Menendez: “What is it that [Trump] is hiding that he would say to…Michael Cohen ‘do not talk about the Trump Tower in Russia’?”

MONTCLAIR, N.J. – U.S. Senator Bob Menendez today responded to Buzzfeed’s bombshell report that President Donald Trump directed his former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the Trump Tower project in Moscow.

“If that story is true, then telling an individual to lie to Congress, to commit perjury is clearly a felony and is clearly a crime. And in my mind, be part of raising the high crimes and misdemeanors,” said Sen. Menendez. “It’s extraordinary. It’s stunning. And it deserves to get to the bottom of, which is why Special Council Muller’s investigation needs to be protected at every cost.”
