Trump faced perhaps the worst day of his presidency on Tuesday when his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, implicated him in a crime at nearly the same time his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was convicted on eight counts of tax-and bank-fraud charges, boosting Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.
The Manafort conviction was the first case sent to trial by the special prosecutor probing Russian meddling in the 2016 election. "Because I felt loyalty, he was an original supporter", Trump said, criticizing Sessions because he, according to the president, "never took control of the Justice Department".
She's out of lockstep with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) with this pronouncement - Pelosi has said that impeachment talk would be a "gift to Republicans", claiming on Wednesday that impeachment is "not a priority" for Democrats.
Nicki Minaj Just Compared Herself To Harriet Tubman & The Dragging Has Begun
Jaws dropped across the audience while Camila shook her head at the diss. "I mean, that's the reason we do these shows". Nicki Minaj has taken aim at Travis Scott after his album beat hers to the top spot in the US charts at the weekend.
Despite Trump's defiant tone, Washington-based campaign finance expert Kate Belinski, of the Nossaman law firm, said to expect legal consequences for both Trump and his campaign - most likely in the form of a civil complaint before the Federal Election Commission.
Some congressional Democrats have raised impeachment after Trump's former attorney, Michael Cohen, implicated Trump this week in a felony: a scheme to pay hush money to women who claimed they had affairs with Trump, and to prevent them from going public during the 2016 presidential election.
The president's story about Cohen's payments has changed multiple times over the past year, and in the Fox interview he tried several ways of defusing the allegations.
President Donald Trump is suggesting that it should be illegal for people facing prosecution to cooperate with the government in exchange for a reduced sentence.
John Aldridge: Jose Mourinho's United meltdown is history repeating itself
Sky pundit Graeme Souness called the United squad the worst set of players at the club since Sir Alex Ferguson departed. The one thing that goes in Mourinho's favour is the dearth of top-quality candidates now available to replace him.
Though they were not named in the plea deal filed in court, the women whom Cohen helped silence were a porn star named Stephanie Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels, and former Playboy model Karen McDougal.
In addition to the two counts of violating campaign finance laws, Cohen also has pled guilty to six counts of fraud.
"We haven't even been 2 years".
Trump did not say whether he would pardon Manafort, but expressed "great respect" for him and argued that some of the charges "every consultant, every lobbyist in Washington probably does". "Paul Manafort, they raided his home at, like, 5 in the morning, I think on a weekend, and his wife is in bed, and they go in with guns?"
