"Michael Cohen asks judge for no Prison Time". "When you look at the president's tweets from this morning, if I was a prosecutor and we had a wiretap up on someone's phone and they said those exact things that the president tweeted, I would say, 'wow, we just got him on obstruction'".
FILE - In this September 26, 2017, file photo, longtime Donald Trump associate Roger Stone arrives to testify before the House Intelligence Committee.
Thirty-three people and three companies have been charged in the probe, including Cohen, Trump's former lawyer who last week pleaded guilty to lying to Congress when he insisted that Trump was pursuing plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow in 2016. "He (Trump) is attempting to influence an ongoing investigation in an overt way".
Cohen's admission during that court appearance marked the first time that a Trump associate had gone to court and implicated Trump in a crime.
Stone then posted a screenshot of Trump's tweet with a caption that said he was proud of their 40-year relationship and "prouder still of the incredible job he is doing making America Great Again!"
Trump showed no signs of sounding a lighter tone about Cohen or the Mueller probe during official events related to Bush's death and funeral. "He makes up stories to get a GREAT & ALREADY reduced deal for himself, and get his wife and father-in-law.off Scott Free". George Conway posted the U.S. Criminal Code citation for witness tampering.
You'll notice the former New York City mayor who is now moonlighting as President Trump's personal attorney (and doing a bad job, by the way, ) neglected to use spaces.
As well as any potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Mueller has also been probing whether Trump tried to obstruct justice - including by firing Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey previous year.
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.
The president then said it's nice to know that some people still have guts.
