President Donald J. Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen has said he had no ties to Russian interference in the 2016 election and saw "not a hint" that Trump himself was involved.

In a statement before closed-door questioning by the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, Cohen said a British intelligence agent's dossiere that tied him to Russian election interference was "riddled with falsehoods and intentionally salacious accusations."

"I have never engaged with, been paid by, paid for, or conversed with any member of the Russian Federation or anyone else to hack or interfere with the election," Cohen said.

"Given my own proximity to the president of the United States as a candidate, let me also say that I never saw anything -- not a hint of anything -- that demonstrated his involvement in Russian interference in our election or any form of Russian collusion."

Cohen also said that the Russian meddling issue has been politicized "to discredit our lawfully elected president" and shame his supporters.

The Senate committee has been interviewing Trump advisors and members of his election campaign as part of a sprawling probe into how Russia tried to influence last year's election to damage front-runner Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate, and boost Trump.

"You can oppose the president's points of view and his policies, but not raise false issues about the validity of his victory," Cohen said.
