Embattled Trump hits back after being implicated in federal crime

Washington Correspondent

An embattled President Trump has lashed out again at the man who was once his personal fixer, accusing Michael Cohen of making up stories to get a deal. This was after Cohen claimed in open court that he had been personally directed by the President to break campaign finance laws.

Mr┬áTrump had nothing but praise for Paul Manafort, another key aide who was also convicted yesterday for financial crimes, declaring he had “such respect for a brave man”.
