US President Donald Trump says his impeachment would 'crash' the economy

If Trump is a dictator why are his people headed to prison

Defending himself in a Fox News interview, Trump sounded like a nervous hoodlum as he attacked Cohen for "flipping", that is, telling prosecutors what they want to hear in exchange for a lenient sentence.

"I don't know how you can impeach somebody who's done a great job", Trump said in a wide-ranging interview with Fox News broadcast on Thursday.

As per a report in The Independent, Cohen stated in the court during his guilty plea that Trump was involved in campaign finance violations.

Because the hush payments were meant to influence the outcome of the elections, they violated United States laws governing campaign contributions, making Trump an - as yet - unindicted co-conspirator. On Tuesday, his personal lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to having paid for the silence of porn actress Stormy Daniels and of Playboy model Karen McDougal, both of whom Mr. Trump is alleged to have had sex with. Trump denies ordering Cohen to break the law and says that the money came from his own fortune, not the campaign account.

In entering a guilty plea, Cohen said under oath that the payments were made "in coordination with and at the direction of a candidate for federal office", in clear reference to Trump.

When feckless and incompetent Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation, Robert Mueller was named the Special Counsel in May of 2017, life has been miserable for Donald Trump. According to court papers, two Trump Organization employees approved Cohen's reimbursement requests based on falsified invoices, and the company falsely recorded the reimbursement as a legal expense.

Some political pundits suggest Cohen's admission to campaign finance violations and implicating the president could be grounds for impeachment, but others are expressing skepticism.

This campaign of political destruction is ongoing because the Deep State, the political establishment and the corrupt news media abhor the President and are disgusted by his "America First" agenda.

"Such respect for a fearless man!"

Billionaire Democratic donor Tom Steyer on Thursday blamed the "Washington establishment" for failing to seriously pursue impeaching President Trump, an initiative he has been pressing Congress on for months. Sadly, the best way to stop this travesty is to elect more Republicans to Congress, but majority are weak and useless and refuse to show support for the President.

When the CNN story broke late June, Trump rubbished it, and like this week, accused Cohen of "trying to make up stories", again to get out of his own legal troubles, a tax evasion case involving a former business partner in the NY taxi business.

"I know that when [Cohen] retained me, as recently as yesterday, he's committed to telling the truth, and we've actually set up a website with the name "truth" in it, called michaelcohentruth.com", Davis said.

Davis's response was significant because Cohen's previous denials of any knowledge of Russian collusion could expose him to a further felony charge and additional prison time if he now says something else to Mueller.

That is a bad strategy if Mr Trump truly has nothing to hide, said Mr Eric Freedman, a constitutional law professor. And impeachment isn't the only way this presidency could end if there were proof that the president had engaged in criminal misconduct before or after he took office.
