All the President's Men Are Flipping on Donald Trump

All the President's Men Are Flipping on Donald Trump

Mr. Weisselberg was called to testify before a federal grand jury earlier this year, the Journal said.

President Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen pleads guilty to campaign finance violation as the Trump Organization CFO and National Enquirer boss land immunity deals; reaction from Corey Lewandowski, former Trump campaign manager and senior strategist for the Great America Committee.

Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski "knew Michael [Cohen] was going to become a problem", which is why he "warned everybody" Cohen "was not somebody who we wanted at the campaign".

Other major dominoes have fallen since, as National Enquirer CEO David Pecker and Weisselberg have both received immunity for useful information on these on payments.

American Media's chief content officer Dylan Howard is also reported to have been granted immunity.

Weisselberg has worked for Trump for decades and is one of his most loyal business retainers.

It appears that "substantial sums were paid for the Trump corporation to pay off, or to reimburse Mr Cohen", Fein said.

Trump was returning from a rally in West Virginia just hours after two former members of his inner circle were found or pleaded guilty, when one passenger quipped that a news story would surely soon be breaking about the president fuming onboard.

She also wrote that she could never do Franklin justice with a tribute amid the noise and tinsel of an awards show. This is a jovial kiki about Madonna's broken a- journey. "The AUDACITY", another fan noted.

While Mr Trump denies the affairs, his account of his knowledge of the payments has shifted.

The revelation was significant because it debunked a CNN report which stated that Cohen claimed "Trump knew in advance about the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower in which Russians were expected to offer his campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton", and that "Cohen is willing to make that assertion to special counsel Robert Mueller".

A NY state case against the Trump Organization could add to the president's worries because his pardon power does not apply to businesses or individuals convicted of state crimes.

Cohen spent years in the Trump Organization apparently putting out fires Trump started.

Cohen told a federal judge that he made secret payments to two women during the 2016 presidential campaign to keep them from speaking publicly about affairs they had said they had with Trump. But then, in a "Fox & Friends" interview, Trump began to dramatically play down his relationship with Cohen.

Weisselberg forwarded Cohen's invoice to another unidentified Trump Organization executive, "and it was approved, " prosecutors wrote.

"Big story out that the Federal Bureau of Investigation ignored tens of thousands of Crooked Hillary Emails, many of which are REALLY BAD", Trump tweeted.

Underwood's request was first reported by The New York Times. "This is Michael Cohen not filing taxes". Trump has routinely denounced the probe as a "witch hunt".
