Trump, Cohen and campaign finance: What you need to know

President Donald Trump warned

CRAIG HUDSON AP President Donald Trump warned"everybody would be very poor if he was ever impeached

"I will tell you what, if I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash. If he believes Cohen that the president directed him to do it then it's not a crime at all if he doesn't believe Cohen then Cohen has committed a crime but not the president".

Justice Department guidelines state that a sitting president can not be indicted for a crime and special counsel Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russian Federation probe MORE has reportedly told Trump's lawyers he will abide by that policy.

Davis also said that the emails "could only have been derived through illegal hacking from a Russian agency called Wikileaks". They definitely aren't going to care about campaign finance violations. Caputo is now helping out with legal bills of others facing the Mueller probe, including former Trump campaign national security adviser J. D. Gordon and former Stone aide Andrew Miller, who has recently been subpoenaed by the special counsel. Trump is a brash bully who sees himself as a political street fighter, a great counter-puncher, as he puts it. On Tuesday, his personal lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to having paid for the silence of porn actress Stormy Daniels and of Playboy model Karen McDougal, both of whom Mr. Trump is alleged to have had sex with.

"Where do you stand when you've got a president who institutes a policy of this kind to deter people from coming to this country?"

That is a bad strategy if Mr Trump truly has nothing to hide, said Mr Eric Freedman, a constitutional law professor.

Watts was arrested last week after telling police and news media for two days he didn't know what happened to his wife and girls. The couple married in North Carolina almost six years ago, and moved to Colorado soon after. "We're here for them", she said.

Cohen said that Trump directed him to make the payments "for the principal goal of influencing the election".

Mueller may not have the power to haul the president before a grand jury or indict him.

And in what could be a more threatening act to the president, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.is weighing whether to pursue criminal charges against the New York-based Trump Organization and two top officials, according to the second person. Then Trump added: "President Obama had a big campaign finance violation and it was easily settled!"

"The American people would revolt" if @realDonaldTrump was impeached.

For Manafort, he expressed respect for a "brave man" who "refused to "break" and he made it clear that he regarded Manafort's prosecution as part of the "witch hunt" he has incessantly complained about.

Another measure to prevent the virus is to wear long trousers and long-sleeved shirts to avoid getting bit. Veterinarians can arrange for testing of samples from horses suspected of infection with West Nile Virus.

That Cohen was in trouble was no surprise; federal prosecutors raided his offices months ago. The media was breathless in reporting the Cohen and Manafort stories that broke the same day.

CNBC wrote that numerous sources from the Trump campaign to Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis refused to comment on the payment. And impeachment isn't the only way this presidency could end if there were proof that the president had engaged in criminal misconduct before or after he took office. Trump added in a tweet that is certain to raise speculation about whether the president might pardon Manafort at some point.

Former George W. Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer stressed that the revelations may be sordid but do not meet the constitutional bar of "high crimes and misdemeanors".

If the opposition Democrats are able to gain control of the House of Representatives in the November mid-term election, though, they would be in a position to initiate such proceedings against Trump.
