New York State to Subpoena Michael Cohen in Trump Foundation Probe


Michael Cohen is no Roy Cohn. One woman was a porn star and another, a Playboy model. While Trump denies the affairs, his account of his knowledge of the payments has shifted. But legal experts such as Alan Dershowitz argue campaign-finance law requires that intent be proved, and reasons for making the payments apart from the election can be cited. At one point she even accused CNN of interfering in the 2016 election, something that the campaign she helped run is under investigation for doing.

Unfortunately, that has also never seemed to matter.

Trump praised Manafort for going to trial, in which the president's former campaign chief was found guilty of eight counts of financial fraud. It remains unclear if the former Trump lawyer has committed to cooperate with the ongoing Special Counsel Robert Mueller probe over the alleged Russian Federation meddling into the 2016 USA general elections.

Nothing that comes of this collaboration will be helpful to Trump.

Duncan also questioned the motives of prosecutors, repeating Trump's characterization that it was a "witch hunt".

Twenty-six months after the Watergate break-in, President Nixon had resigned. The second sitting member to endorse Trump, Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., was indicted Tuesday on charges of illegally using more than $250,000 in campaign funds to underwrite his lavish personal lifestyle.

Yet the White House signalled no clear strategy for managing the fallout. She continuously pitches back to the fact the president hasn't been charged with a crime. After all, it is Parliament that deposes and beheads the king, not the sheriff of Nottingham.

"The real concern is whether Mueller would turn any pardon into an obstruction charge", Giuliani said. It said that it had referred its findings to the IRS and the Federal Election Commission for possible further action.

Mitchell Epner, an attorney at Rottenberg Lipman Rich who was previously an assistant USA attorney for the District of New Jersey, told Business Insider in an email that "at a minimum", Trump could be charged with "conspiracy to commit the two campaign finance counts".

Under most circumstances, prosecutors would soon seek to file charges against Trump. To resign would be to give up his sword and shield, and all of his immunity.

Weisselberg is an unlikely player in the unfolding presidential drama, a low-profile employee who appeared in "The Apprentice" as a judge once but otherwise rarely drew the spotlight. And as he has shown, these powers are considerable: the power to rally his emotional following, to challenge courts, to fire Justice officials and Federal Bureau of Investigation executives, to pull security clearances, to pardon the convicted. "I think everybody would be very poor", adding that Americans would see economic "numbers that you wouldn't believe in reverse".

"But it leads him closer to ultimate impeachment proceedings, particularly if the Democrats take back the House", he said.

The defection of Cohen, who had once grandly declared he would "take a bullet" for the president, was deeply troubling to Trump.

Republicans and their allies have pounced on the impeachment push, demanding vulnerable Senate Democrats pick a side in the debate - and risk alienating pro-Trump voters or the liberal base.

That is the most immediate avenue of concern for Trump. President Donald Trump has long demanded loyalty from his friends and associates. Outside allies of the White House said they had received little guidance on how to respond to the events in their appearances on cable news.
