If true, Cohen's reported claim that Trump knew about the meeting-which was also attended by Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and former campaign manager Paul Manafort-could spell trouble for both the president and Don Jr., who may have lied to Congress about his father's knowledge of the 2016 meeting.
In other tweets, he attacked "the Fake News" for asking "dumb questions" and again decried special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into his campaign's ties to Russian Federation as "a rigged Witch Hunt".
If Trump Sr. did indeed know about the meeting and approved of it in hopes of getting compromising information on opponent Hillary Clinton, "that could be collusion", Rivera said. As we now know, Trump Jr. later acknowledged that it clearly wasn't just about adoption.
"Sounds to me like someone is trying to make up stories in order to get himself out of an unrelated jam", Mr Trump wrote in a series of Twitter posts, without adding details to support his claim. Cohen served as a top Trump confidant for more than a decade but has recently signaled a willingness to cooperate with investigators amid his legal troubles and what he sees as abandonment by the President.
Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and others have repeatedly said that the president knew nothing about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting until he was asked about it by reporters in July 2017. He has turned on his former longtime boss in an effort to appease Mueller, hiring longtime Bill and Hillary Clinton lawyer Lanny Davis to plead his case.

Rudy Giuliani, the president's attorney, told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "Cuomo Prime Time" Thursday night that Cohen is a liar and has been lying for years. The former NY mayor said in an interview late Thursday with The Post that Cohen "isn't credible at all, and there are witnesses who know what he's claiming isn't true". "A lawyer who would tape their own client is a lawyer without any character".
The tapes were reportedly discovered during an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Mr Cohen's property earlier this year in NY.
About a dozen audio recordings were seized and passed to federal prosecutors.
Mr Cohen told ABC News this month that his loyalty to his family and country came before his old boss.
The economy went up by 4.1% in the April to June quarter - and Mr Trump said he expected it to climb further. His interest in them is the latest addition to a range of presidential actions he is investigating as a possible obstruction case: private interactions with Mr. Comey, Mr. Sessions and other senior administration officials about the Russian Federation inquiry; misleading White House statements; public attacks; and possible pardon offers to potential witnesses.
