Well, that is a pretty big damn shoe to drop by God.

President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according to two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter.

Trump also supported a plan, set up by Cohen, to visit Russia during the presidential campaign, in order to personally meet President Vladimir Putin and jump-start the tower negotiations. “Make it happen,” the sources said Trump told Cohen.

And even as Trump told the public he had no business deals with Russia, the sources said Trump and his children Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. received regular, detailed updates about the real estate development from Cohen, whom they put in charge of the project.

Cohen pleaded guilty in November to lying about the deal in testimony and in a two-page statement to the Senate and House intelligence committees. Special counsel Robert Mueller noted that Cohen’s false claim that the project ended in January 2016 was an attempt to “minimize links between the Moscow Project and Individual 1” — widely understood to be Trump — “in hopes of limiting the ongoing Russia investigations.”

Now the two sources have told BuzzFeed News that Cohen also told the special counsel that after the election, the president personally instructed him to lie — by claiming that negotiations ended months earlier than they actually did — in order to obscure Trump’s involvement.

The special counsel’s office learned about Trump’s directive for Cohen to lie to Congress through interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents. Cohen then acknowledged those instructions during his interviews with that office.

This, by the way, is exactly what led to Richard Nixon’s resignation. 

You know they said that Michael Cohen might be the one to bring down this president, and it is beginning to look like they were right. 

In fact, if Mueller has access to all of these text messages and emails there might be others in the Trump family that will be brought down as well. 

News outlets claim that Trump himself never uses text messages or email, but that is certainly not true concerning Don Jr., Ivanka, and Jared Kushner.  

Like I said, a very big shoe to drop. 

And clearly, it is a shoe that frightens Donald Trump.

Is he threatening Cohen’s father-in-law again?

    “The President weighed in on this on Twitter this morning, so I’ll refer you to that,”

    Trump could walk down fifth avenue and shoot someone and get away with it because he is doing the devils work.

    “Editor’s Note: After this story aired, a spokesman for special counsel Robert Mueller’s office released a statement: “BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate.” BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith said the organization stands by its reporting.”

    “I understand the attempts by the administration and the president himself to sort of shift the public’s attention onto other areas ― Michael Cohen’s father-in-law, [but] to be honest, I don’t understand what that means,”
    ““We obtained every single text message Michael Cohen exchanged with Felix Sater on the project. In those text messages, he’s discussing briefing Trump,”
