President Donald Trump “did nothing wrong” in his dealings with  Michael Cohen, the White House asserted Wednesday — pushing back on the claim by the president’s former lawyer that Trump directed him to violate campaign-finance law.

Asked at a White House news briefing if the president committed a crime, Sarah Huckabee Sanders said “just because Michael Cohen made a plea deal doesn’t mean that implicates the president on anything.”

“As the president said, we've stated many times, he did nothing wrong, there are no charges against him, and we've commented on this extensively,” Sanders said.

She repeated herself multiple times when asked about Cohen, The Hill reported.

“I have addressed this a number of times. Just because you continue to ask the same questions over and over, I’m not going to give you a different answer,” Sanders said, The Hill reported.

“The president has done nothing wrong, there are no charges against him, there is no collusion,” she added. “That’s what I can tell you about this.”

Trump said on Wednesday hush-money payments to two women who claimed to have had affairs with him didn’t break campaign finance laws, and denied he knew of the payments at the time they were made.
