President Trump told reporters Wednesday that Michael Cohen is "a weak person" for pleading guilty to lying to Congress about plans for a Trump Tower in Moscow, and said he believes Cohen is "lying to get a reduced sentence."

Why it matters: As Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen was the only person intertwined in Trump’s professional, political, personal, legal and family life. Now that information is being unearthed by Robert Mueller.

More: Trump added that even if he had done business in Russia during his 2016 presidential campaign, "it would be nothing wrong. I was running my business while I was campaigning." Trump has previously said he has no business dealings with Russia.
