Cohen's lawyer walks back claim Pres. Trump knew of Russia meeting

President Trump's ouster from the White House is no longer a question of if but when writes Fein

"I think people who support President Trump ought to hope that the businesses were conducted entirely aboveboard".

Federal ethics rules frown on lawyers making comments meant to prejudice a jury or engaging in fraud or dishonesty, but legal ethics expert Steven Lubet said there's no boundary crossed by an inaccurate public statement.

"The information in the Post story, which was attributed to one person familiar with discussions among Cohen's friends, came from Davis, who is now acknowledging his role on the record", the Post reported.

Davis doubled down on social media, tweeting that Cohen had "decided to tell the truth about (Trump) and put his country first". "But I am not sure". "I regret the error".

After suggesting to CNN last Wednesday that "Cohen was an observer and was a witness to Mr. Trump's awareness of those emails before they were dropped", Cohen told the Post, "there's a possibility that is the case".

Dershowitz said that while Trump has the right to fire Sessions, "I think it would be a mistake to fire anybody".

The AP reported Thursday that the tabloid kept a safe containing documents about hush-money payments and damaging stories it killed as part of its cozy relationship with Trump leading up to the 2016 presidential election. In court filings, prosecutors say two unnamed Trump Organization employees - "executive 1" and "executive 2" - helped set up the reimbursement.

South Africa condemns false claims as Trump white farmers row continues
The stark inequality stems from purchases and seizures during the colonial era that were then enshrined in law during apartheid. In fact, black South Africans can sue for land if they can prove that their family was buried on or owned the farm before 1910.

Worth noting? This Trump Tower meeting - ground zero for the "meddling" claims - was set up by the same bipartisan forces peddling the notorious "golden showers" memo, which accused Trump of being blackmailed by Russian Federation as a result of his alleged deviant sexual fetishes.

"Just another phony story by the Fake News Media!" he tweeted.

But as a long-serving employee in the Trump family business, he is rich repository of knowledge, and the idea of him answering questions to investigators under oath poses a new danger for the president as federal prosecutors in Washington and Manhattan dig deeper into the president's business affairs. "I like to know all the facts before I make a judgment".

McDougal sold her story to American Media for $150,000 United States in August 2016 but it was never published by the National Enquirer, a practice known as "catch and kill" aimed at suppressing potentially damaging stories.

CNN said it stands by the story, which included reporting from Pulitzer Prize-winning Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein.

Federal prosecutors in NY are considering possible charges against the Trump Organization in relation to the Cohen hush-money agreement with Daniels, an official briefed confirmed to ABC News on Friday.

Lanny Davis says he does not know whether President Donald Trump had advance knowledge of Russian hacks of Democrats.
