We have new information about the Russian investigation and more evidence of a relationship between a Russian oligarch with ties Vladimir Putin. And the Trump team video shows the Russian oligarch, Viktor Vecsey Berg at Trump Tower just days before the inauguration Berg is in the black hat. And you may have heard his name before when his plane landed in the US. Earlier this year expert was questioned by special counsel Robert Muller's team. Now, the Mandy his left in this video. That's his cousin, Andrew in trader and trader runs an investment firm that same month, January two thousand seventeen started paying more than half a million dollars to the president's personal attorney. Michael Cohen, CNN Shimon peasants been following the money trail and Shimon I realized maybe we don't know this yet, but what was Vicksburg doing Trump Tower and along those lines. Why did Muller wanna talk to? I mean, Jake, that is a great question. And the people that we've talked to have certainly said that they were there to discuss. Us US and Russia relations how to better these relations. Now, the question really is, why do they feel the need to have these discussions with Michael Cohen who as you've said is, was the personal attorney to the president? What exactly would his role be in bettering any kind of relationship with any country is not entirely clear, but what's obvious is what Mullah would be interested in these two guys and they both. We've been told, we're questioned by the special counsel. FBI agents is really because if you follow this money trail, this is what's interesting now victim XL burgers is billionaire with close ties of Ladimir poo in he shows up at Trump Tower. He shows up at the inauguration, his cousin, they're Andrew and traitor donated to the inauguration. And as you said, hired, Michael Kohn gave him paid him over half a million dollars for a contract. Clearly, all of this is something that the special counsel and FBI agents have found interesting. There's also been concerned from FBI agents from the special counsel. That oligarchs were somehow funneling money to straw donors in the US that was then going to the campaign and the inauguration, and perhaps Jake, that is what some of this is about our at Shimon brokos. Thank you so much. Let's bring back the panel. So let me start with you told these cousins met with Cohen Cohen, Michael Cohen. The president's personal attorney, not somebody on the campaign to discuss US Russia relations. Do you buy. Even if I do buy it. It's pretty strange because if you go back and I know it's getting very hard to follow all this. But we were told originally when in traders, gender scape this money to the inauguration and then hired Cohen that we shouldn't think anything of the fact that he had this cousin who was an oligarchy who was close to Putin because he's an American citizen and clearly he's just acting on his own. It's not any way connected to his cousin who's close to Putin. Now we see them going to Trump Tower together. And so now it's like, actually, it seems like maybe doing something together and then reportedly this Russian oligarch weirdly goes to the inauguration of Donald Trump. I mean, is that something the oligarchs usually do? I don't know, but everything about this is highly suspicious and just undermines the story that we were originally told. One of the things that I think so odd about this Crispin is the Trump campaign, the Trump people. They could give their explanation as to all of these meetings and all of these Russia. Connor. Acts and such, but they don't. They haven't said anything. It's been the special counsel or journalists finding these things out and then bringing them to them. I mean, so it just seems to me like if there's an innocent explanation for all of this, they could have done this a long time ago. Well, I think they're attempting quasi innocent explanation with we wanted to help us Russia relations. But I agree with that. It does not pass the smell test. When you had allegations that will Jared Kushner during the transition was talking to the Russian form and Russian minister. Was that acceptable or not? You actually do think can complies ably explained? Yes. He was gonna play an important role in his father in law's administration. That explanation does not hold up here. It does not explain why over half a million dollars went to Michael Cohen. What did everybody want out of Michael Colin for all this money. I think that is a very important question that needs to get his attempt to sell access or whatever the appearance of access to President Trump is now led has now gotten. Himself and perhaps others into a whole mess of trouble. You're absolutely right about the changing stories that's been. That's been a thread through this entire investigation. Mean even going back to the first Trump Tower meeting. We were supposed to believe that was about Russian adoption. I and it was not. It was about Hillary Clinton dirt on Hillary Clinton potentially. So also when I'm going to choose which is about the the meeting yesterday when congressional, the gang of members of congress were briefed on this FBI confidential source and suddenly out of nowhere. The president's attorney defending him from the Russia, probe, Emmett flood, and the way that's staff John Kelly showed up. Now, we're told the White House said, they just showed up to say the president wants transparency, and then they left, but a congressional source now tell CNN that they only left the department of Justice briefing after some lawmakers felt it was inappropriate for them to be there. What do you make of all its first of all? Why do they need. To be there to ensure transparency that doesn't even make sense. I mean, this is this is supposed to be oversight of the person that Emmet flood by the by members of congress. So the people who are being overseen, don't get to go to the meeting where there's oversight. So there's no reason for them to be there. And it does sound like now that they wanted to stay, it's just completely inappropriate. I think it's corrupt. I said this before earlier this week I think it's completely corrupted and how bugs kind of behave Giuliani said to politico that their legal defense depend on what they were going to learn at these meetings, these meetings that they weren't supposed to learn anything from? Well, I'm sure it does, but it doesn't mean that they're supposed to be there. Yes, I'm sure the president wanted them there, but the president doesn't always get to get what he wants. This is a Kogel of government and they do have oversight over the president. The one thing I want to say is President Trump continues to push this false narrative about this confidential f. b. i. sources idea that the Obama administration infiltrated spies in po- put spies into his campaign tweeted. Can anyone even imagine having spies placed in a competing campaign by the people in partying absolute power for the sole purpose of political advantage and gain? This comes after the Justice department FBI briefed be brief, the Republican, Democratic lawmakers. Here's Mitch McConnell. When asked about what he learned that briefing, were you surprised when what you learned. Nothing particularly surprising. But again, it was classified. So there's no real no report. I mean, none of the Republicans that attended this briefing seem to think that there was anything outrageous about what they learned. Certainly, I mean, it sounds like from what we've learned that you had a professor who contacted some of the folks on the campaign, they they had some correspondence, but it's not the same thing as as the FBI sort of paying someone who was a senior level campaign official who was working in Trump Tower. That sort of thing, I think would rise to a more eyebrow raising that would be a spy. It's frustrating for long time tried to make the case that his campaign was spied on. Remember this. It's been has been over a year that he would be tweeted that the Obama folks tapped Trump Tower. Evidence on that still waiting for the evidence on that. I mean, I think the reason why the president is branding this as spy gate and talking about it so much is because in his mind gets you one step closer to being able to substantiate that allegation. He made so long ago. Does anyone ever seen a person pushback so hard and create so much chaos around something when they were completely innocent, it's just why does he have to make up all these stories? Why does he have to make up this infiltration story and spy gate story when it's perfectly straightforward thing that happened, they had been warned by by the FBI that they could possibly be infiltrated. So why is it surprising that the f. b. i. would be talking to by Russia by Russia, everyone stick around major democratic donor. He's been a powerful Hollywood producer, and now he's a defendant facing serious charges in court. Harvey Weinstein, surprising, and somebody say disturbing defense strategy coming up next.
