Trump Organization finance chief granted immunity in Cohen probe

Trump says market will ‘crash’ if he were impeached

Trump faced perhaps the worst day of his presidency Tuesday when his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, implicated him in a crime at nearly the same time his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, became was convicted on eight counts of tax-and bank-fraud charges, boosting Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Michael D'Antonio, the author of the 2015 biography of Trump, Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success, told Politico that he believes Trump now feels "terrified" by the consequences of his actions now coming to fruition.

Would a Democratic House, assuming we get one, really impeach a president for paying hush money to old girlfriends? Unlike in federal cases, Trump has no power to pardon crimes charged by state prosecutors and no authority to shut down a state investigation into his business-something he's said he wouldn't tolerate from federal investigators.

"You know, I'm sorry".

Defending himself in a Fox News interview, Trump sounded like a nervous hoodlum as he attacked Cohen for "flipping", that is, telling prosecutors what they want to hear in exchange for a lenient sentence.

Two of those counts implicated Trump directly, with Cohen saying he arranged to pay off two women to keep their stories of alleged affairs with Trump from becoming public before Election Day - in coordination with the then-candidate.

Mr Trump said Mr Cohen only worked for him part time, and accused the lawyer of making up stories to reduce his legal exposure.

"You know the only reason I gave him the job?"

Utah's first West Nile death of 2018 reported in Salt Lake County
The Department of Health in Bay County (DOH-Bay) has confirmed one human case of West Nile Virus infection in Bay County. The health authority says no human cases have been reported and no positive mosquito pools have been identified.

The official said Trump and his aides have grown accustomed to being smacked with bad news when they look up at the television - and their reactions are more muted than when Trump first took office. "Everything's wonderful and then they get 10 years in jail and they - they flip on whoever the next highest one is, or as high as you can go".

The President suggested that Mr Cohen's legal trouble stemmed from his other businesses, including involvement with the New York City taxi industry.

Tuesday, Trump's ex-lawyer, staring at five years in prison, pled guilty to a campaign violation that may not even be a crime.

He blamed Mr Sessions for what he called corruption in the top U.S. law enforcement agency, saying: "I put in an attorney-general who never took control of the Justice Department".

Members of both parties dismissed talk of impeachment, with some Democrats expressing fears about such a politically risky step, and Republicans shrugging off the accusations or withholding judgment. "It's an excessive amount of scrutiny, so I am sure they'll dig up every little piece of dirt they can on it".

Steyer himself hasn't ruled out the possibility of running for president in 2020.

Meanwhile, the president and his defense lawyers led by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani continue to argue there was "no collusion" by the Trump organization or administration with the Russian elections meddling, amid speculation President Trump may eventually resort to firing Mr. Mueller.

Goodlatte is not expected to agree to Democrats' demands, which also include reconsideration of a bill, the so-called Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act, that would prohibit Trump from arbitrarily firing Mueller before he can complete his investigation. I said, 'What kind of a man is this?' And by the way, he was on the campaign.
