Cohen thus attempted to reache out to members of the Russian governement in an attempt to make the project proceed, but apparently did not have any direct points of contact. ...
it does not appear Cohen ever received a response from anyone affliated with the Russian government.....
neither President Putin nor any element of the Russian government was actually directly involved in the project.
In truth and in fact, and as COHEN well knew, COHEN’s representations about the Moscow Project he made to SSCI and HPSCI were false and misleading. COHEN made the false statements to (1) minimize links between the Moscow Project and Individual 1(Donald Trump) and (2) give the false impression that the Moscow Project ended before “the Iowa caucus and . . . the very first primary,” in hopes of limiting the ongoing Russia investigations. COHEN attempted to conceal or minimize through his false statements the following facts:
- The Moscow Project was discussed multiple times within the Company and did not end in January 2016.
COHEN agreed to travel to Russia in connection with the Moscow Project and took steps in contemplation of Individual 1’s (Donald Trump) possible travel to Russia
- COHEN did recall that in or around January 2016, COHEN received a response from the office of Russian Official 1, the Press Secretary for the
- President of Russia, and spoke to a member of that office about the Moscow Project
Kostin who is Putins top finance guy and CEO of 2nd largest bank in Russia is on board and has indicated he would finance Trump Moscow. This is major for us, not only the financing aspect by Kostins position in Russia, extremely powerful and respected. Now all we need is Putin on board and we are golden, meeting with Putin and top deputy is tentatively set for the 14th. See buddy I can not only get Ivanka to spin in Putin’s Kremlin office chair1 on 30 minutes notice, I can also get a full meeting. I will call you later today to discuss getting the LOI signed.
Buddy our boy can become President of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putin’s team to buy in on this

So Cohen lied about a real estate deal that didn't happen. Unless Trump lied about it this is a non-issue.
Meuller is inventing crimes and the DOJ is ignoring others---there's the real issue.

Trump said over and over again that he had no ties to Russia. That would be lying.
I do agree all crimes should be treated equally.
