Trump wants 'full and complete' sentence for Cohen

Trump wants 'full and complete' sentence for Cohen

Commenting on an investigation is not in and of itself a crime, but a Monday morning tweet by President Trump has some legal experts wondering if it crosses a line into witness tampering.

Eric Trump unloaded with force Wednesday evening against George Conway, saying the Washington attorney's constant criticisms of the Trump administration were disrespectful to his wife, Kellyanne Conway, who now serves as a senior presidential counsellor.

"You mean he can do all of the awful, unrelated to Trump, things having to do with fraud, big loans, Taxis, etc., and not serve a long prison term?"

Soon after, Trump praised Roger Stone, a political operative who cut his teeth directing shady operations during the 1972 Nixon campaign.

Cohen, once one of the president's closest allies and a top executive at The Trump Organization, last week admitted lying in testimony about contacts with powerful Moscow figures over building a Trump Tower in Moscow. Still, Eric Trump felt the need to insert himself into the controversy and defend her.

Longtime Trump associate Roger Stone arrives to testify in the House Intelligence Committee'™s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, September 26, 2017.

Cohen pleaded for leniency from a judge on Friday, saying he should be spared a prison term because he's informing on the president and his company to Special Counsel Robert Mueller. He lied for this outcome and should, in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence, ' the president added.

"We're going to say to the Office of Professional Responsibility and the inspector general that the way these prosecutors on Mueller's team behaved with me, and the deal they gave me, which was fraudulent, I believe demands a criminal investigation", he said.

Asked whether he would expect a pardon from the president if indicted by Mueller, Stone replied, "I've had no discussion regarding a pardon".

Specifically addressing Eric Trump's tweet, Gregory said, "It's striking to me that you, you know, insert yourself into that and I think that Kellyanne Conway has also taken umbrage and questions about this in their marriage". The truth is very bad for their mission!' the president wrote.
