Rep. Joaquin Castro of Texas posted on Twitter that if the BuzzFeed story was true, Trump "must resign or be impeached".

On Fox News Channel, White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said that the BuzzFeed story was "absolutely ludicrous", but he repeatedly refused to deny the central allegation: that Trump directed Cohen to lie.

You are fake news.' And like I said, I'm trying to be fair and honest, fair and balanced as we say here, and say that when the president says that, sometimes that's not fair.

"They are making a public comment to tell everyone to calm down", Weinstein said.

The law enforcement sources told BuzzFeed that Cohen confirmed to special counsel Robert Mueller's team that Trump issued the order to lie to Congress.

Giuliani is responding to a Buzzfeed News report saying that Trump directed Cohen to lie to Congress.

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, meanwhile, appeared to write off the allegations, telling a number of media outlets on Thursday, "if you believe Cohen, I can get you a good all-cash deal on the Brooklyn Bridge".

To make matters even more damning to Mr. Trump, the sources say that Cohen isn't the only witness that Mueller has to point to this seemingly clear attempt to obstruct justice.

Michael Cohen, former lawyer to President Donald Trump, leaves his apartment building in NY on December 7, 2018. "We will do what's necessary to find out if it's true,"Schiff, also a Democrat, said on Twitter".

Last week Cohen agreed to appear before a congressional panel on February 7, as U.S. House of Representatives Democrats began kicking off numerous investigations of Trump, his business interests and his administration.

"There is genuine fear and it has caused Michael Cohen to consider whether he should go forward or not, and he has not made a final decision", Davis said. Prosecutors say Cohen did so at the direction of Trump, who has denied he directed Cohen to break the law or that he had affairs with the women.

The report, if true, would constitute subornation of perjury - a felony crime. A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to comment. "Be very cautious about any source that claims to have knowledge about our investigation and dig deep into what they claim before reporting on it", Mueller's spokesperson told the Daily Caller.

Russian Federation has rejected U.S. intelligence findings that Moscow interfered in USA politics in the 2016 election in an effort to boost Mr Trump.

Any evidence that Trump directed a witness to lie to investigators would place him in the greatest political and legal jeopardy yet and confront him with allegations of the sort that led to the departure of one president and the impeachment of another.

Democrats, who took over the US House of Representatives this month, have generally been cautious regarding any talk of impeachment to remove Mr Trump from office, although some rank-and-file members have pushed for such a resolution.
