- Demanding Congress give in to his demands on immigration, and
- Repeating the ridiculous claim that his favorable poll numbers are higher than any other Republican president, including Abraham Lincoln.
He wrote first, “Do you think the Fake News Media will ever report on this tweet from Michael?” referring to a report that Cohen had complimented Trump Junior. “So proud of @DonaldJTrumpJr for being open, honest and transparent to the American people,” Cohen wrote on Twitter on July 11, 2017, attaching a photo of Trump Jr. for good measure. “This nonsense needs to stop!”

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) delivered the message to Michael Cohen that now is the time to cooperate with Robert Mueller.
Rep. Swalwell said on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House:
We were as thorough as you could be on the democratic side without having subpoena power and without having Republicans across the table from us on these interviews who showed the same interest. And so, you know, we asked all of the questions that the public would expect us to ask, but the problem was that you know, Donald Trump, Jr., when asked about the Trump Tower meeting and conversations with his father, he refused to answer any of them. And when we asked chairman Conaway way who was presiding on the Republican side to subpoena Donald Trump, Jr., and force him to answer, they never forced him to do that. They were able to essentially answer the questions they wanted to answer and just walk away from the ones that got too close. But, you know, frankly, Nicolle, when I hear Michael Cohen through these sources say that Donald Trump knew about the meeting, that’s like telling us that the sun sets in the west.
