Donald Trump's lawyer on Scottish golf trip as president faces legal threats

After securing guilty pleas from three other former Trump officials, Mueller is expected to, at the very least, release reports on whether he thinks the president's campaign worked with Russian Federation to win the election and whether he thinks the president obstructed the ensuing investigation.
"You would only impeach him for political reasons and the American people would revolt against that", he told Sky News while on a golf course in Scotland. Trump re-ignited his feud with the former Alabama senator Thursday by complaining in the Fox interview that Sessions "never took control of the Justice Department".
The attorney general's office is seeking $2.8 million in restitution and other unspecified penalties in its civil suit.
"They didn't come out of the campaign; they came from me", he said.
Trump in the interview also said in regard to his former lawyer Cohen that he thought it would be better if "flipping", in which someone's confidant helps prosecutors in return for a lighter sentence, "were illegal because people "just make up lies".
In the first year of the Trump administration, there was something of a debate about how much television that President Donald Trump watched.
"They make up things and now they go from 10 years to they're a national hero".
That tool "almost ought to be outlawed".
Cohen reportedly felt betrayed by Trump, who had not reached out to him after federal authorities raided his properties for information related to the payoffs and who had stopped paying his legal bills.
Cohen has been involved in the New York City yellow cab industry since the 1990s.
Trump's mere mention of impeachment, however, shows how deep his political troubles have become, with this week's events putting his presidency's future in serious doubt.
Correspondents say it is unlikely Mr Trump's opponents would try to impeach him before November's mid-term elections.
The guilty plea was part of a double dose of bad news for Trump: It came at nearly the same moment his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was convicted in Alexandria, Virginia, of eight financial crimes in the first trial to come out of special counsel Robert Mueller's sprawling Russian Federation investigation.
A few days earlier, Trump had referred to John Dean, the White House counsel whose truth-telling was instrumental in Richard Nixon's downfall, as a "RAT". And it was not clear the West Wing was assembling any kind of coordinated response.
Federal investigators raided Cohen's office, home and hotel room in NY earlier this year and seized various electronic devices and documents which reportedly include information that Cohen paid porn star Stormy Daniels so as to keep her silent about accusations of an affair with Trump.
The White House denied the president had lied, with Sanders calling the assertion "ridiculous".
In short, while few investors with long positions in the stock market would welcome the turmoil that would likely result from impeachment proceedings against Trump, the notion that the turbulence would leave everyone poor is likely more than a little far-fetched.
Manafort faces separate charges in September in the District of Columbia that include acting as a foreign agent.
Trump praised Manafort as "a fearless man!" raising speculation the former campaign operative could become the recipient of a pardon as he argues the prosecution was an overreach by the Justice Department. That relationship crumbled over the last few months, especially after a federal raid of his office, hotel and home in April.
Trump said that he did not believe that the hush-money payments amounted to a violation of campaign finance law, and suggested he was being unfairly targeted by the Justice Department.
Asked if Cohen had ever been to Prague, as the Steele dossier alleged, Davis said, "The answer is one hundred percent no".
"Having a sitting US president listed as an unindicted co-conspirator, to me, meets the test, meets the standard", said Mr. Carson, Indiana Democrat.
A president can be removed from office by Congress for "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors".
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".
Cohen, who previously said he would "take a bullet" for the US President, agreed to making a plea bargain earlier on Tuesday. Paul Manafort , Trump's former campaign chairman, was convicted Tuesday of tax and financial fraud.
Mueller's office has not yet filed a sentencing memo in the case of Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn. Trump himself tweeted. calling Papadopoulos a "young, low level volunteer named George.'".
