Washington [USA], Dec 13 (ANI/Sputnik) - US President Donald Trump said on Thursday that he never directed his former personal attorney Michael Cohen to break the law, adding that the lawyer should have understood the legality of his own actions.
"I never directed Michael Cohen to break the law. He was a lawyer and he is supposed to know the law. It is called 'advice of counsel,' and a lawyer has great liability if a mistake is made. That is why they get paid," Trump said in a Twitter message.(ANI/Sputnik)
