Trump slams FBI's Clinton email investigation

David Pecker

And now everyone from Michael Cohen to Omarosa to Sacha Baron Cohen is releasing audio and video tapes exposing Trump as a liar.

"The plea, under oath, establishes that the president was a co-conspirator in the campaign violations to which Cohen pleaded guilty", Philip Allen Lacovara, who served as counsel to the special prosecutors investigating former President Richard Nixon's role in the Watergate scandal, told The New York Times.

Cohen pleaded guilty on Tuesday to tax evasion, campaign finance violations and bank fraud.

The Enquirer endorsed Trump for president in 2016, the first time it had ever officially backed a candidate.

American Media did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

As part of that probe, Cohen's offices were raided and investigators looked into his finances.

President Donald Trump has been having a tough week.

"My advice to the president, I never gave it to him privately because I'm not his lawyer, but on television is, 'Don't fire, don't pardon, don't tweet and don't testify, '" Dershowitz said on "This Week".

Two executives at American Media Inc., which publishes the National Enquirer, a supermarket tabloid reportedly involved in making the payments, have also been granted immunity in the investigation, Vanity Fair magazine reported.

Trump has insisted that Manafort and Cohen were charged with matters totally unrelated to his presidential campaign.

The response sparked new speculation that Trump might fire Sessions, although some senior Republican lawmakers offered the attorney general support.

It is unclear whether Mr Weisselberg discussed Mr Trump, who Mr Cohen claimed had directed him to make the payments - effectively accusing the United States president of being a co-conspirator in a crime.

"The agenda comprised questions on how deniable cash payments were to be made to hackers who had worked in Europe under Kremlin direction against the CLINTON campaign and various contingencies for covering up these operations and Moscow's secret liaison with the TRUMP team more generally", the dossier stated. Such payments could be considered illegal campaign contributions under federal election law, according to experts. Cohen has indicated he may cooperate with that inquiry.

Mr Weisselberg, Chief Financial Officer, is the latest to get immunity.

The attacks from Trump have continued. Meantime, Cohen also committed bank and tax fraud relating to his NY taxi and other businesses.

"I need to open up a company for the transfer of all that info regarding our friend David", says Cohen, "so that - I'm going to do that right away".

In February 2017, Cohen sent "Executive-1" an invoice seeking two monthly payments of $35,000 "pursuant to [a] retainer agreement, " according to court documents.
