Court documents made public on Thursday said Cohen discussed the Trump Tower Moscow plan with the president and his family multiple times.
"He is lying about a project that everybody knew about", Trump told reporters at the White House before jetting off to the G20 summit in Argentina. "He's got himself a big prison sentence".

"When will this illegal Joseph McCarthy style Witch Hunt, one that has shattered so many innocent lives, ever end - or will it just go on forever?" Mueller is trying to determine whether or not Stone acted as an intermediary between the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks at a time when WikiLeaks was publishing or getting ready to publish hacked Democratic e-mails, but Stone has maintained that he never discussed WikiLeaks with Trump in 2016.
"Did you ever see an investigation more in search of a crime?" he wrote on Twitter on Thursday.
