MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch on Friday said that former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen told him months ago that he can tie President Donald Trump directly to Russia.

Specifically, Deutsch said that he was not surprised to see word leak that Cohen was willing to testify to special counsel Robert Mueller that Trump had direct knowledge that his son, Donald Trump Jr., planned to meet with Russian agents who were promising dirt on Hillary Clinton.

“In my past conversation with Michael, what he’s made very clear to me is… nothing went on in this business without Don knowing about it,” said Deutsch. “And he led me to believe that he could bring Trump back to Russia. What came out yesterday to me was not a surprise.”

“Did he reference this meeting in particular?” asked host Willie Geist, referring to the infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting.

“Yes, he did,” Deutsch confirmed.

Deutsch then explained that the entire Trump-Russia scandal would soon expand to cover Trump’s business dealings going back decades.

“This is going to come down to 15 years, 20 years, 30 years of slimy, dishonest, underhanded business dealings,” he said. “You’re going to connect that with Russia and everything else, and I think there’ll be things that come out that we haven’t even thought of.”
