6:50 am
a dramatic appearance before congress he said his full of boss knew in advance about wiki leaks dump of e-mails stolen from senior democrats during the twenty sixteen campaign cohen says trump ordered him to threaten people and groups five hundred times over ten years he also testified that trump ordered him to pay one hundred thirty thousand dollars to adult film actress told me daniels to cover up an affair and said he was later reimbursed with some checks signed by trump and his son don jr he launched a bit a tirade against trump calling him a racist a con man and a cheat he wants said that trump told him black people would never vote for him because they were too stupid and said trump only ran for office to make his own brand great north america. has been following the story. affirmative as expected michael cohen explicitly linked donald trump to his conviction for campaign finance violations the president of the united states thus wrote
6:51 am
a personal check for the payment of hush money as part of a criminal scheme to violate campaign finance laws in so doing cohen also alleged a connection between the president's son and donald trump jr in connection with a criminal conspiracy to which he has pleaded guilty he also laid into the president's character he is a racist he is a con man and he is a cheat what was unexpected is curt also discussed issues related to the russia investigation although he made clear he had no direct evidence of collusion first but the lobbyist roger stone had informed trump that wiki leaks a told him that they would release e-mails damaging to hillary clinton during the twenty sixteen presidential campaign mr trump responded by stating to the effect would that be great prosecutors allege russia supplied wiki leaks with those e-mails we could leaks denies that and also says no conversation with stone took place but that it had publicly announced that publication was imminent either way trump has denied
6:52 am
for knowledge karen also said he suspects trump knew that a trump tower meeting would take place with russian nationals about getting damaging information on clinton during the campaign and alleged but trump lied throughout the campaign about his attempts to build a trump tower in moscow and that the president's lawyers signed off on polls congressional testimony about those negotiations you need to know mr trump personal lawyers reviewed and edited my statement to congress about the timing of the moscow tower negotiations before i gave it to be clear mr trump knew of and directed the trump moscow negotiations throughout the campaign and lied about it. he lied about it because he never expected to win cohen also made this tantalizing statement is there any other wrongdoing or illegal act that you are aware of regarding donald trump that we haven't yet discussed today yes and again those are
6:53 am
part of the investigation that's currently being looked at by the southern district of new york there are also allegations about tax fraud and for on the part of donald trump's charitable foundation this would have made uncomfortable viewing for the president if as was reported he was watching in vietnam even as dog from denies all the allegations sheraton see al-jazeera washington. well there is patchy col hayne has been following the story and joins us now from capitol hill and patty there was a great deal that we heard today from michael cohen that we have heard from president trump's adverse reason the possum then we had some new evidence relating to that as well how would you describe the overall reaction to what we've had today in the contest. well it really is being perceived in a partisan lens we've seen republicans no matter what the allegation is no matter
6:54 am
what the evidence is that mr cohen has put forward they have come forward defending the president by trying to attack michael cohen we just he's back before the congress right now they should be wrapping up soon it's about five o'clock eastern time here in the united states so it seems like they've chosen a few more congressmen to go but one interesting exchange just happened over the president's tax returns remember for about forty years every presidential candidate has released their tax returns for public disclosure trump never did that president trump always said that his taxes were under audit so mr cohen was just asked about this and he said that mr trump told him that he couldn't release his tax returns to the public because in some think tank would go through them and that in fact could trigger an audit which would seem to indicate the president's taxes are not actually being audited what's important here is what we've just seen of the last hour is congresswoman and congressman laying out exactly what more evidence they want they are making the case that mr cohen is really just the first one that's
6:55 am
going to testify and they are laying out exactly who knows what where the documents are and what they need to do to get it so this is explosive it's controversial it's being watched across the country but it's just the first one. right that as you say passy there is the crucial question now of the evidence that exists to corroborate these claims but i suppose the second thing is that michael cohen did plead guilty in november to low. lying to congress. that really cost a doubt over his credibility here is the way. well it does and that's the point that the republicans in the conservative media are making and he has actually pled guilty to the felony that is lying to congress the democratic counterargument is that he is over he's facing three years in prison if he is found to have lied to congress again then he could face more prison time so it's really a question bill and a question of what you take away from his credibility from his performance
6:56 am
throughout the day and that's going to be the key question for the republican base do they believe michael cohen do they believe these allegations are serious will it change their support for president trump he has been the most controversial unconventional president that the country has ever had but his core base supporters have not really left and they've started the poll numbers have started to trickle down words but they still will tell you most of them that they are one hundred percent for the president he once famously said that he could shoot someone on fifth avenue in manhattan and that means any support that has proven pretty much to be the case nothing shot anybody but every time he breaks the norm every time he does something on twitter that there were days that were heard of before from the u.s. president he still keeps his support this is michael cohen laying out that the president of the united states he believes committed a felony while in office setting out those house payment monies does that matter to his supporters well that's something you can bet the white house and more importantly the republicans in congress are going to be watching in the days ahead
6:57 am
it is important to put today's developments into context isn't it thank you very much patty calling efforts on capitol hill. u.s. president and north korean leader have started their second summit in vietnam's capital hanoi donald trump ailed came in as a great leader and treated later that he'd had great meetings with him the team met for a short one on one meeting before having dinner together in hanoi his country has tremendous economic potential he's hoping to convince him to give up his nuclear weapons program during two days of talks and meeting comes eight months after their first summit in singapore adrian brown has more now from. the formal talks are on the way this was billed as a casual get together which we go through with leader kim jong un and u.s. president don't rub their message of what the first summit was
6:58 am
a great success and i think this one hopefully will be equal or greater than the first we made a lot of progress and i think the biggest road this was our relationship is really a good one. here we are today sitting next to each other and this time i am convinced that an excellent outcome will be for tuesday but all people can welcome that i will do my best to make that happen this is their first meeting since the historic single pool summit almost nine months ago then at a casual dinner the leaders had just two aides each as well as their interpreters the evening helping to set the toad ahead of thursday's meetings. at the heart of their discussions will be the sprawling young beyond nuclear complex experts say plutonium and highly enriched uranium are produced here essential materials for a nuclear weapon dismantling it could win concessions from the united states like an easing of sanctions but. first.
6:59 am
the singapore summit was more symbolism than substance and ahead of these talks in hanoi president trump a sort of play down expectations of a significant breakthrough and even if kim were to agree to give up the nuclear weapons we know about it would still be a long and complicated process here for you to fulfill them is like north korea vietnam for a bit a war with the united states more than forty years after that conflict ended the countries achieve strong economic growth while preserving one party rule and trump was happy to fly the flag of his host saying north korea could thrive if it follows vietnam's example you know what. we both felt very good about having this very important summit in vietnam because you really are an example as to what
7:00 am
can happen with good thinking. if thursday's talks go well a city wants synonymous with war could become a symbol for peace. i feel very happy because world leaders are coming to vietnam to talk about peace to see each other and to shake hands. but this summit has to be about more than handshakes and friendly gestures it needs to set a framework for future talks and there could be many more of those adrian brown al-jazeera hanoi. well i spoke to bill richardson a former u.s. negotiator with north korea he said that president trunk needs the talks to succeed as a positive distraction from problems on the domestic front such as the fallout from michael cohen's testimony right now the president has had difficulty in the congress with the shutdown of the government the wall now this testimony but at the same time the president may want to hit.
