Rep. Elijah Cummings Ilia's change Eugene CummingsRule exacerbates Trump investigations in Trump, Dems has reason to work together but tensions rush over Ivanka Trump claims the president has had "zero" security involvement for her, Jared Kushner 19659003]Chairman of the Chamber of Trustees and Reform Commission, said on Friday that the group believed that two lawyers for President Trump
Cummings said the group was examined the newly discovered documents from the OGE, which suggests Trump's personal lawyer Sherry Dillon and the former White House. Attorney Stephen Pasantino gave false information about young adult payouts to adult film actress Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougall. "Now it appears that President Trump's other attorneys – in the White House and private practice – may have provided false information about these payments to federal officials," Cotmings wrote in a letter to White House Adviser Pat Chipolone.
Cummings said that Dylon "has repeatedly told federal officials in the NGE that President Trump never owes money to Mr Cohen in 2016 and 2017," and Pascantino falsely told the staff that Trump and his former Attorney Michael Cohen had a "detention contract".
The hill reached the White House for comment.
Cohen, who organizes payments for women claiming Trump in 2006, was sentenced in December to three years in prison for many charges, including several related to payments. A federal judge ruled that payments violated campaign funding laws. Trump denied the alleged cases.
"President Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, is now going to jail for part because of his role in these payments with silence," Cummings writes. "In his guilt, Mr Cohen said he did so" in coordination with and at the direction of the president, with the main purpose of influencing the elections. "Now it seems that other lawyers – in the White House and in private practice – may have provided false information about these payments to federal officials. This raises important questions about why some of the President's closest advisers have made these false statements and to what extent they also acted on instructions or in coordination with the president. "
Cummings also sent Alan Feathers, who represented the Trump Organization and Donald Trump Jr. Donnel (Don) John TrumpTrump Organization drops plans to open new hotels amidst attention: Report Drama Hit Senate Intel Institute Russia investigation Schulz will not say whether he will sell all Starbucks shares if he becomes president MORE a second letter stating that Trump's organization has failed to meet the commission's request for several documents. Originally, Futerfas refused to give up the papers, as they are currently in the hands of the federal authorities investigating the business.
"Congress is very careful not to break the outcome of criminal cases while exercising its own constitutional powers to conduct strict supervision," Cammings said.
