Last night he said they "totally clear the President".
But Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III and federal prosecutors in NY indicated they believe otherwise, making clear they have determined evidence shows Trump was the maestro of illegal payments to two women during the 2016 presidential campaign to silence their accounts of extramarital affairs and had knowledge of efforts by his former "fixer" to discuss "political synergy" and potentially conflict-creating business dealings with Russian Federation.
On Saturday morning, Trump responded to the release of the documents on Twitter (in almost all caps, of course), saying, "AFTER TWO YEARS AND MILLIONS OF PAGES OF DOCUMENTS (and a cost of over $30,000,000), NO COLLUSION!"
Mueller said Cohen also shared information about his own contacts "with Russian interests during the campaign and discussions with others in the course of making those contacts".
"With respect to both payments, Cohen acted with the intent to influence the 2016 presidential election", the prosecutors in NY said.
But when Cohen pleaded guilty in August to campaign finance violations connected to the payments as well as other charges, he stated in court that he had been directed by Trump.
In what appeared to be a new disclosure, Mueller said that around November 2015, Cohen spoke with a Russian national who could offer the campaign "political synergy" and "synergy on a government level".
That passage sheds new light on Russian officials' attempts to establish a relationship with the Trump campaign - but the special counsel held back on whether he has evidence the president was directly involved or orchestrating those contacts.
Both the NY sentencing memo and Mueller's memo can be read here.
It was the first time the feds directly linked Trump to hush- money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal - a fact noted by former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti.
Prosecutors say Cohen deceived voters during the 2016 election. His lawyers have asked that he receive no jail time, saying he has cooperated extensively with Mueller and NY prosecutors and has taken responsibility for his actions.
Cohen has pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about negotiations between Trump's business and powerful Russians about a prospective Trump Tower in Moscow, a building that ultimately was never built.
According to the filing, Manafort lied about his interactions with Russian-Ukranian political consultant Konstantin Kilimnik, Kilimnik's efforts to tamper with witnesses, the circumstances surrounding a $125,000 payment to a firm working for Manafort, and Manafort's contacts with officials in the Trump administration.
Manafort, who has pleaded guilty to several counts, violated his plea agreement by telling "multiple discernible lies" to prosecutors, they said.
Cohen also told prosecutors that he and Trump discussed a potential meeting with Putin on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in 2015, shortly after Trump announced his candidacy for president, the filings say. Prosecutors, who said Flynn's assistance was "substantial" and merited no prison time, disclosed that he had cooperated not only with the Russian Federation investigation but also with at least one other undisclosed criminal probe.
They show the President's former attorney, Michael Cohen, acted on the President's direction, when he broke the law in two election-related crimes.
Trump's spokeswoman Sarah Sanders dismissed the latest filings in Cohen's case, saying they "tell us nothing of value that wasn't already known".
