russian interference in the twenty sixteen presidential election. oh president trump has denied working on that real estate play and he says that michael cohen is live trying to get a lighter sentence. it was convicted of various things unrelated that. he was given a fairly long jail. and he's a weak person. by being weak i'd like other people that you watch he's a weak person and what do you try to do is get a reduced sentence so he's learning about a project that everybody knew it i mean we were very open with. well despite what mr trump is saying michael cohen has not yet been sent to the states not due to happen until the twelfth of december what was going to our correspondent minds whether she's on the story for us tonight from washington good evening to you miles so how does this affect the more investigation into allegations of russian interference in the twenty six thousand presidential election while the dots to
10:03 pm
connect tonight. well one of the revelations coming out of this guilty plea this morning is that looks like michael cohen is in fact cooperating with robert mueller in his office and his investigation which is something that was not clear beforehand but this guilty plea that was entered this morning really throws throws up the curtain on something else that looks like it was going on during the presidential campaign and we also have to point out that we don't know what moller knows and this is just another sort of a link in the chain another small step forward in this story that's been unraveling that people are expecting to come to a head possibly even before the end of this year. what do we know about these alleged russian real estate projects that mr cohen says he lied about. one of the biggest link in this chain as we've said is that michael cohen was

10:06 pm
democrats but also from within the republican party himself itself after the summit with president putin in helsinki and there were a lot of concerns over what exactly trumps posture towards president putin meant that he was maybe a little bit too for a little bit too conciliatory and that is possibly just one of the many reasons swirling around as to why this was so abruptly canceled our correspondent in washington my us waiter on the story for us tonight my thank you. or ukraine's president petro poroshenko has called will need to intervene if russia invades but nato has rebuffed him saying it already has a strong patrolling present in the region ukraine's prime minister was in berlin today seeking support from german chancellor angela merkel but not military support . a warning for europe ukraine's prime minister visits berlin
