Sessions bites back as Trump says impeachment would sink economy

Sessions bites back as Trump says impeachment would sink economy

Mr Trump was responding to a question on his mounting legal woes after his former attorney Michael Cohen said under oath that Mr Trump instructed him to commit a crime by breaking USA campaign finance laws. "As president, he has no power to pardon people and corporate entities convicted of state crimes".

Prosecutors in the district attorney's office, who reviewed the court papers about the campaign finance charges and other federal crimes to which Cohen pleaded guilty, are now focused on determining whether business records were falsified, according to the Times. It was related to payments to two women who claimed that the President had affairs with them.

"I will tell you what, if I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash, I think everybody would be very poor", the president warned in an interview aired Thursday on talk show "Fox and Friends".

In July, Cohen released audio tapes of him and Mr Trump allegedly discussing one of the payments before the election.

"I don't know how you can impeach somebody who has done a great job", Trump said.

But Mr. Cohen, Mr. Trump's longtime fixer, said on Tuesday that he paid Ms. Clifford, better known as Stormy Daniels, to buy her silence during the 2016 campaign. He added that Cohen has gone through a severe emotional and financial hardship under an aggressive prosecution.

By Friday, the GoFundMe page, dubbed "Michael Cohen Truth Fund" had raised more than $149,000 from about 2,770 donations.

Minaj claims Spotify canceled a portion of advertising for her album's rollout after she played her music early on Apple's Beats1. Another commenter wrote: "Guess that's why she no longer cares". "The c-sucker of the day is Irving Azoff ", she said.

He added: "And by the way, he pled to two counts that aren't a crime, which nobody understands".

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.

"It is clear that, as the prosecutor noted, Mr. Cohen's actions reflect a pattern of lies and dishonesty over a significant period of time", Giuliani said in a statement. Trump denies ordering Cohen to break the law and says that the money came from his own fortune, not the campaign account.

"If the Judiciary Committee doesn't move forward, then I think it's incumbent upon the 435 members, each of whom have the opportunity to bring articles of impeachment, to consider doing so", Green said. "Not only is he up against a billionaire, he also has to deal with the wrath of a runaway presidency". However, recent comments by Cohen's lawyer have cast doubt over such 'evidence'.

Cohen also revealed through Davis on Wednesday that he has information that might be of interest to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, charged with investigating alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation in the runup to the 2016 election.
