Allen Weisselberg.

Even though Trump has tried to belittle the criminality of this development, critics are calling the president a co-conspirator in Cohen's campaign finance lawbreaking since his ex-lawyer is accusing him of being directly involved in the efforts to suppress Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal. "Cohen is willing to make that assertion to special counsel Robert Mueller, the sources said", said the story.

Duffy, who represents the 7th Congressional District, was harshly critical of Manafort, who joined Trump's presidential campaign in March 2016 and was campaign chairman from June to August of that year.

Federal ethics rules frown on lawyers making comments meant to prejudice a jury or engaging in fraud or dishonesty, but legal ethics expert Steven Lubet said there's no boundary crossed by an inaccurate public statement.

"I don't think I've witnessed anything like I've witnessed over the a year ago and a half".


"Don't fire, don't pardon, don't tweet, and don't testify", he said. What they found was passed on to NY judicial authorities.

Our interest was piqued by statements from former White House special counsel Lanny Davis, who represents Trump's former attorney and so-called "fixer" Michael Cohen.

"Michael Cohen's attorney clarified the record, saying his client does not know if President Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting (out of which came nothing!)".

People familiar with Cohen's testimony to the House and Senate Intelligence committees said Cohen was interviewed extensively about the Russian interference campaign but did not provide any information to suggest Trump had advance knowledge.

But Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi said that unless other information emerges, impeaching Trump is "not a priority" for Democrats if they regain control of the House this fall.


Trump's tweet also mentions that he has a 90 percent approval rating among Republicans, which matches the number found by the WSJ/NBC News poll.

The possibility of him answering questions from investigators poses a new danger for the president as federal prosecutors in Washington and Manhattan dig deeper into Trump's business affairs.

In fact, prosecutors said, Cohen had no retainer agreement with the Trump Organization at the time, and the invoices were not in connection with any legal services he provided in 2017.

"They are the comments of a man who has no respect for the law", said Allan Lichtman, a political historian who teaches at American University.

"Are you a hero?" a television reporter shouted at Michael Cohen as he left his NY apartment last week.
