It feels like it has to be a trap..
Why would cohen flip? Trump can offer him more.. And if he were to be convicted of anything Trump could just pardon him.
Good morning Emin just called and asked me to contact you with something very interesting. The Crown prosecutor of Russia met with his father Aras this morning and in their meeting offered to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father. This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump - helped along by Aras and Emin.
President Donald Trump's former lawyer has said his client knew in advance of a June 2016 meeting between his aides and a Russian delegation that offered to help his campaign, US media report.
Michael Cohen says he was present when Mr Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, informed his father of the meeting.
Donald Trump Jr and the president's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, have both testified - one to Congress, the other to the special counsel - that the president knew nothing about the meeting until details of it emerged a year later.

In response to the allegation, Mr Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani told NBC that Mr Cohen "is not credible".
"It's not true," he said. "Why would you expect it would be true from someone like Cohen? A lawyer who would tape their own client is a lawyer without any character."

One that is trying to save his own ass? Kind of like a plea deal, by releasing this information he is lessening his own sentence.

And when Trump Jr, say's his Dad didn't know about it?
Then Cohen will provide irrefutable proof, in the form of a legally recorded conversation, that he did

This is possibly one of the biggest developments in this whole Trump Russia thing because if what Cohen says it’s true it directly implicates Trump. It means we have moved from it being members of Trumps team being complicit to trump himself being involved.
