7:04 am
special counsel's russia investigation. his former lawyer michael cohen revealed he is cooperating with mueller after a surprise guilty plea yesterday. cohen admitted he lied to congress to be consistent with his political messaging. cohen's plea deal is the biggest development in mueller's year and a half long investigation yet. mueller has now secured guilty pleas from five men connected to the president or his campaign. paula reid is covering the mueller probe. she has been very busy. >> reporter: good morning. sources tell cbs news president trump was told in advance about cohen preparing to enter a plea deal with robert mueller. this may help explain why the president appeared especially agitated all week, lashing out against the investigation on a daily basis. >> he's a weak person. not a very smart person. >> reporter: president trump reacted sharply to news of michael cohen admitting he lied to congress. >> what he's trying to do is get a reduced sentence so he's lying about a project that everybody
7:05 am
knew about. >> reporter: in august of last year, cohen told congress a plan to build a trump tower moscow was under consideration from september 2015 until the end of january 2016. but on thursday, cohen revealed candidate trump continued to pursue the moscow project until june of 2016. long after he had essentially secured the republican nomination. raising questions to the extent which the president's business empire was entangleled with his political ambition. a month later, mr. trump posed this question. >> wouldn't it be a great thing if we could actually get along with russia? >> reporter: now it's not just political -- >> mr. cohen has cooperated. >> reporter: on thursday it became personal. cohen court documents mentioned as late as june 2016 he discussed the status of the moscow project with mr. trump on more than three occasions. and briefed family members. >> michael cohen is lying. >> reporter: as the investigation gets closer to the trump family, the president is

defiant. >> even if he was right, it doesn't matter, because i was allowed to do whatever i wanted during the campaign. i was running my business. >> reporter: but the pressure is building. >> lying to congress is a serious offense. >> reporter: as he faces a soon to be democrat-led house of representatives. >> suspect there are more dealings that the president wants hidden. >> reporter: the signal thursday, there's more to come. >> we need to look into, among other thing, the allegations that the russians have been laundering money through the trump organization. >> reporter: sources tell cbs news part of the president's written answers to mueller included a description of the moscow project that was in line with cohen. the special counsel did not ask about the timing of those discussions. >> let's separation the political from the legal. would it have been legal to work on a business deal in another country? >> nothing illegal about these preliminary discussions which begs the question, why lie about them?
7:07 am
this fall also into the larger pattern. with so many trump campaign associates lying about their contacts with russia, that were orwise legal. cohen, flynn, manafort, gates, papadopoulos and former attorney general jeff sessions. and the special counsel is looking at all of these contacts at a time when russia was trying to sabotage the u.s. election. this goes beyond pr spin trying to distance from russia. these are people lying to congress or federal investigators, risking jail time to lie about these contacts. the big question is why. >> totally different thing to lie to mueller. >> exactly, you can lie to the press, you cannot lie to the fbi. >> paula, thank you. as we mentioned, the president is in buenos aires at the g-20 and just signed a new trade agreement with canada and mexico. it was just one of several critical meetings. his decision to cancel talks with russia president vladimir putin is making headlines. major garrett is at the summit in buenos aires.
