Trump ex-lawyer has no ‘evidence’ of Russia collusion, but ‘suspicions’

Michael Cohen tells Congress that he had no specific evidence that Trump coordinated with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign, but spoke of his “suspicions” his former boss was involved in collusion.

Delivering uncomfortably blunt testimony about his decade-long professional relationship with Trump, the disgraced lawyer provides examples of how Trump or his family had dealings with Moscow or with Russian figures in 2016 in the heat of the campaign.

“Questions have been raised about whether I know of direct evidence that Mr. Trump or his campaign colluded with Russia,” Cohen tells the House Oversight and Reform Committee. “I do not, I want to be clear. But I have my suspicions.”
