An attorney who works for special counsel Robert Mueller’s office on Wednesday revealed that former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen had given them “credible” and “valuable” information about what she described as “links between a campaign and a foreign government.”
As reported by Courthouse News’ Adam Klasfeld, Special Counsel’s Office prosecutor Jeannie Rhee told the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York that Cohen had given her office information about what is very likely connections between President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and the Russian government.
“Mr. Cohen has sought to tell us the truth,” Rhee said, according to Klasfeld.
Rhee declined to offer the court further details about the information Cohen provided, however, and said that “there’s only so much we can say about the particulars at this time, given our ongoing investigation.”
"There's only so much we can say about the particulars at this time, given our ongoing investigation," Rhee said.
