Michael Cohen Should Get 'Long Prison Term,' Trump Says
Dec 04 2018
Trump wrote that Cohen did "terrible" things that were "unrelated to Trump" and said that he believes Cohen should "serve a full and complete sentence". Cohen faces several years in prison but has yet to be sentenced.
A promise: Trump took note of Stone's weekend vow that he will never testify against the president.
Having just returned from a trip to Argentina for the G20 summit, Trump turned his attention to what he calls special counsel Robert Mueller's "witch hunt" into Russian interference in the 2016 election. "He (Trump) is attempting to influence an ongoing investigation in an overt way".
Cohen asked a federal judge to opt against giving him jail time in a document filed Friday night.
Mr Trump added Cohen "makes up stories to get a great and already reduced deal for himself".
"File under '18 U.S.C. §§ 1503, 1512", George Conway tweeted, a reference to the section of the United States criminal code that covers witness tampering and obstruction of justice.
In August, he pled guilty to eight criminal counts related to the hush money payments he made adult film actress Stephanie Clifford, better known as Stormy Daniels.
Cohen admitted he lied to Congress when he said efforts to pursue the Moscow real estate ended in January 2016, when they actually continued until June 2016, after Trump had clinched the Republican presidential nomination.
On Thursday, Cohen added an additional guilty plea, admitting that he lied to Congress about an ultimately unsuccessful effort to build a Trump building in Russian Federation. "The truth is very bad for their mission!"
Klayman said it was "puzzling" to him "why Trump's lawyers have not gone on the counteroffensive by bringing suit for the illegal surveillance against the president, his staff and his family".
Trump finished off his morning by attacking Mueller and "his out of control band of angry Democrats".
Prosecutors from Mueller's office had offered Corsi a deal to plead guilty to a false statements charge, but he said he rejected the offer because he didn't knowingly mislead investigators.
