Michael Cohen says Trump used code language to coach him to lie to Congress
Donald Trump used “code” language to coach his former top aide, Michael Cohen, on how to lie to Congress about Trump projects in Moscow, Cohen told lawmakers in a public letter on Friday.

The letter recapped testimony Cohen had made to the special counsel Robert Mueller and two congressional committees, according to Cohen’s lawyers. They called the letter the first detailed accounting of Cohen’s sworn testimony about alleged crimes committed by Trump.

“Trump and his [White House] advisors encouraged Cohen to lie and say all Moscow Tower project contacts ended as of January 31, 2017,” when in fact the projects were alive at least six months later, the letter said.
