WASHINGTON | The Latest: White House says court filings show nothing new
WASHINGTON — The Latest on the special counsel’s Russia investigation (all times local):
The White House says new court filings about President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and campaign chairman offer nothing new or damaging about Trump.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says government filings about former Trump attorney and personal “fixer” Michael Cohen “tell us nothing of value that wasn’t already known.”
That’s despite the fact that the federal special counsel said in one of the documents that Cohen was in touch as far back as 2015 with a Russian who offered “political synergy” with the Trump election campaign.
