    So are you saying that Cohen’s lawyer never said that Cohen had information on the Trump Tower meeting? Because if he said it (and you know he did), it isn’t “fake news”.

    When he retracted that statement later, CNN also reported that.

    “Fake news” is something that never happened. This happened.

    Incredibly important issue?

    Yea, let's look at that.

    There was a meeting at Trump Tower which has been confirmed.

    It was involving illegal activities and breaking campaign laws.

    Manafort was there.

    Trump Jr. was there.

    Jared was there.

    Trump dictated a false statement that it was about adoptions. We know that to be true.

    Trump's statement that he knew about the meeting has been walked back to "not sure".

    But the illegal meeting still happened.

    And Trump wrote a memo that was a lie.

    Those he hasn't walked back.

    The story was a lie, Cohen didn't have any information, and CNN decided not to bother to verify the story and just ran with it, because they wanted to bamboozle the public. And that's how they got the rep for being the World's Fake News Leader.

    Talking to someone from Russia is a crime according to leftards. Using a third party and paying them to use Russian sources to create a dossier that was total bullshit of which was used to justify FISA warrants on anyone associated with Trump's campaign is legal as well?

    If leftards didn't have double standards, they would have no standards at all.

    No because it was his lawyers fault and he overstepped his info and probably Mueller told him he was not allowed to discuss the investigation on TV.
