Trump Says His Ex-Lawyer Cohen Should Get Years in Prison

Interested in Donald Trump?

President Donald Trump began the week with a string of early morning tweets - which has become a common occurrence - but Monday's flustered posts seemed to betray a sense of panic. Nice to know that some people still have "guts!" "The President of the United States should not be using his platform to influence potential witnesses in a federal investigation involving his campaign".

The lawsuit, Klayman said, alleges obstruction of justice, witness tampering and witness intimation by the special counsel and his prosecutorial staff.

In a series of tweets on Monday, the president accused Cohen of cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe in exchange for a reduced sentence on the unrelated tax fraud and campaign finance charges.

Eric Trump tagged Mrs. Conway in the tweet, but not her husband.

Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.) weighed in later.

Stone said the idea that Trump's tweet amount to witness tampering is "hysterical". "I'd be probably on a beach somewhere", he said.




The president quoted Stone on Twitter Monday, who had just recently made the claim.

The complaint states that Mueller's office is now "knowingly and deceitfully threatening to charge Dr. Corsi with an alleged false statement", unless he gives them "false testimony" against Trump and others. "The fact it's done out in the open is no defence", said Neal Katyal, a veteran constitutional lawyer and former acting solicitor general of the Department of Justice.

After tweeting about his meetings in Argentina and complaining about Democrats refusing to fund his border wall, the president turned to the Mueller investigation.

Trump accused Cohen of fabricating stories about his Russian Federation dealings to minimize his sentence on multiple counts of tax evasion, financial fraud and campaign finance violations that he has admitted in federal court in NY.

Cohen said that he had lied to Congress to minimize the links between Trump, who was seeking the Republican presidential nomination, and the Moscow project that Trump's company was pursuing at the time.

Both Stone and Corsi have denied any wrongdoing, and Stone has denied knowing Assange or being a conduit for WikiLeaks.
