Michael Cohen's Lawyer Tries Asking For Donations - Gets Laughed At

Donald Trump news Mr Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to financial violations

Trump lashed out at former longtime lawyer Michael Cohen in a Twitter post by saying the campaign finance violations Cohen pleaded guilty to in federal court in NY on Tuesday were "not a crime" - even though prosecutors and Cohen agreed that they were.

Trump has denied the affairs and responded to Cohen's guilty plea on Twitter Wednesday, saying the campaign finance violations are "not a crime".

Cohen is not the only former Trump associate to be convicted of a crime - former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was found guilty of financial fraud-related crimes on Tuesday, former national security adviser Mike Flynn is awaiting sentencing, and former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos has pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Mr. Cohen said he organised hush money for two porn stars, who allegedly had sexual relations with Mr. Trump, who directed him to pay them off.

Paul Manafort, who led the Trump campaign during the Republican National Convention in 2016, was indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russia's role in the last presidential Election.

It is somewhat inexplicable that Manafort has not made a deal with prosecutors to tell them what he knows about possible collusion by the Trump campaign with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election.

Perspective on former Trump attorney Michael Cohen's plea deal and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's conviction from an worldwide and criminal law specialist.

In a morning tweet, Trump said, "I feel very badly for Paul Manafort and his wonderful family. So that is the functional equivalent of the word 'cooperate.' I don't know why ... they didn't use the word", Davis said.

"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", said Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.

"If you look at President Obama, he had a massive campaign violation but he had a different attorney general and they viewed it a lot differently", Trump said.

While many of us are clinging to the hope that this will actually reap consequences upon our seemingly impenetrable president, for Daniels, Cohen's guilty plea has an extra dose of schadenfreude. Cohen also questioned Trump's loyalty to the United States and saw him as unfit to hold office, his attorney, Lanny Davis, said in a round of television interviews.

President Trump confronted one of the most perilous moments of his presidency Tuesday after two former members of his inner circle simultaneously were labeled "guilty" of criminal charges.

This morning, Trump lashed out at Cohen in a series of tweets attacking a man who he once embraced as one of his closest confidantes.

Cohen's accusation increases political pressure for Trump ahead of November's congressional elections where Democrats are trying to regain control of the House of Representatives and Senate.

"He refused to "break" - make up stories in order to get a "deal", Trump tweeted. "You know they're still looking for collusion", he asked during the rally in West Virginia.

Michael Cohen stands behind Trump at a campaign event in September 2016.

The Supreme Court in 1997, ruling in a sexual harassment lawsuit brought by Paula Jones against President Bill Clinton, held that a sitting president could be made to answer questions as part of a lawsuit.
