BuzzFeed News published a bombshell report on Thursday night alleging that President Trump directed his former personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the Trump Organization's negotiation to build a tower in Moscow. 

The report, based on two law-enforcement sources who have investigated the matter, also says that Trump instructed Cohen to arrange for Trump, then the Republican nominee for president, to visit Russia and possibly meet Vladimir Putin. 

Investigative reporter Anthony Cormier, who co-authored the BuzzFeed article, joined KCBS Radio anchors Susan Leigh Taylor and Stan Bunger to dig deeper into the details of his report.
