The Dems are Still Trying to Create 'Dark Files' on President Trump

President Trump waves after stepping off Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House Thursday. He was returning from a trip to Iowa and Illinois

But according to CNN and NBC, Trump's former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen, who is under investigation and has fallen out with the president, claims he was present when Donald Jr. told his father about the Russians' offer to meet, and that Trump approved of it.

CNN's Alisyn Camerota on Monday cornered Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani about how he could be certain whether President Donald Trump was telling the truth about the infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting.

Rudy Giuliani, a leading attorney for President Donald Trump, told Fox News on Saturday that two experts and retired Federal Bureau of Investigation agents have examined the tape Michael Cohen secretly recorded of Trump in 2016 and concluded it has been tampered with. "Gee, I wonder if they helped him make the choice", Trump said.

Three days after Cohen's new lawyer, Lanny Davis, released a tape of Cohen and Trump talking about paying for Playboy model Karen McDougal's silence, the relationship splintered further Friday.

Mr Trump Jr responded "I love it" when first offered the political "dirt" on Mrs Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee.

The criticism of a man who was once Trump's fierce defender reflects the tensions wrought by the federal investigations in NY and Washington. As we now know, Trump Jr. later acknowledged that it clearly wasn't just about adoption.

In April, Trump said in a tweet that Cohen is "a fine person ... who I have always liked & respected".

Giuliani said that if Cohen is aiming for a pardon by threatening to testify about the June 2016 meeting, "this is a stupid way to do it".

To be clear, these sources said Cohen does not have evidence, such as audio recordings, to corroborate his claim, but he is willing to attest to his account.

Temperatures to PLUMMET this weekend after record breaking 37c HEAT
Essex Police said the search for a boy who was last seen in water near Clacton Pier on Thursday evening resumed on Friday morning. The level 3 warning, one behind a national emergency, has been issued with temperatures set to be in the high 20s this week.

That inconsistency was seized upon by Rudy Giuliani, the president's attorney.

Legal experts told Business Insider last week that they found it freaky that Cohen felt the need to record a conversation with Trump, and some said they had never heard of an attorney secretly recording a client.

Donald Trump and his son Donald Trump, Jr.at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Wednesday, July 20, 2016.

"They had thought that September, early September, would be a good guideline".

But after the release of the Trump-Cohen recording, Trump criticized his former attorney, saying on Wednesday, "What kind of a lawyer would tape a client?"

She noted that Giuliani called Cohen an "honest, honorable lawyer" on "This Week" in May.

"(T) he rigged Witch Hunt continues!" he complained, adding: "How stupid and unfair to our Country".

This would be a significant development in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government.
