Rudy Giuliani: Impeaching Trump would mean 'people's revolt'

Jeff Sessions, never took control of the Justice Department.

Trump faced perhaps the worst day of his presidency on Tuesday when his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, implicated him in a crime at nearly the same time his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was convicted on eight counts of tax-and bank-fraud charges, boosting Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Perhaps more damaging for Mr Trump, though, is that Mr Cohen is reportedly willing to speak with Special Counsel Robert Mueller that his former boss knew about a "conspiracy to collude" with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign. I mean, there's no reason.

Sessions responded that he and his department "will not be improperly influenced by political considerations", adding to tension over his decision to recuse himself. "They came from me and I tweeted about it".

"I will stay uninvolved and maybe that's the best thing to do", he said in the interview.

Trump told "Fox and Friends" that for "30, 40 years I've been watching flippers. Everything is wonderful, then they get 10 years in jail, and they flip on whoever the next highest one is or as high as you can go". "It nearly ought to be outlawed; it's not fair".

"In fact my first question when I heard about it was did they come out of the campaign, because that could be a little dicey", Trump said in the interview, a day after his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, implicated him and said the maneuver was created to sway the election.

"It demonstrates that Cohen's a liar and the USA attorney in the southern district of NY extraordinarily called him a liar".

The back-to-back legal blows have raised speculation that Democrats would launch impeachment proceedings if they win the House of Representatives this fall.

But if Democrats did move to impeach Trump, he predicted the economy would suffer as a result.

"I will tell you what, if I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash". Trump has now changed his story to say he knew about the payments "later on", the implication being he wasn't a co-conspirator in making them. "I think everybody would be very poor", Trump said on "Fox and Friends".

Cohen implicated Trump in court when he plead guilty to eight counts of tax and bank fraud and campaign finance violations because it "made a great deal", Trump claimed.

More than 2,000 people donated to the "Michael Cohen Truth Fund" to help the president's former lawyer and fixer.

Yet the White House signalled no clear strategy for managing the fallout.

On April 5, President Trump leaned into the press cabin on Air Force One and started answering questions.

That pretty much sums up the grim mood in the White House even if nobody there is admitting it.

In 2013 Obama's presidential campaign was fined by the Federal Election Commission for failing to report a number of campaign contributions and for not returning campaign donations within a required time frame. Trump denies ordering Cohen to break the law and says that the money came from his own fortune, not the campaign account.

However, some legal experts say the president's pardon power is so broad that it would be hard to make a criminal obstruction case. The probe includes the hacking of Democrats' emails, whether the Trump campaign may have cooperated with Russian Federation and if the president obstructed justice.

On Thursday, Underwood reportedly opened a criminal tax investigation into Cohen as it relates to the Trump Foundation and his own dealings. Harry Sandick, a former federal prosecutor, told HuffPost. "It is remarkable that Giuliani and his team do not see how the president, with this conduct, continues to do extraordinary damage to his position in the ongoing investigations".

Donald Trump has some biting remarks for former lawyer Michael Cohen.

Today, it is Republicans leaders who are under pressure to break with Trump, denounce him, and call for new investigations into alleged collusion with the Russians. Legal experts generally agree that sitting presidents can't be indicted. Already, the president has refused to truly acknowledge what USA intelligence experts have determined: that Russian Federation meddled in the election, specifically to help Trump.
