Trump has stated unequivocally this morning that he did not know of the Russia meeting with his son, pushing back on the news that Cohen is going to testify that he knew about it:

Trump knows that it will be Cohen’s word against his word and there won’t be any proof to back up Cohen’s claim, so he’s trying to make the most of it by putting these tweets out this morning.

He also suggests that Cohen is simply trying to save his own butt regarding his taxi cab medallion problems by testifying.

And as far as I know, no collusion ever actually occurred in the Don Jr. meeting with the Russian lawyer, as it was mainly a ruse to get them in a room to discuss the Magnitsky Act. So even if Trump did know about it ahead of time, what’s the point of all this? That he lied about knowing about the meeting? Well to put it bluntly, it wouldn’t be the first time.

But at this point it’s his word vs Cohen’s word, and I’m not sure that bodes well for Mueller, especially if Cohen has ever claimed that Trump didn’t know about it.
