Trump Organization CFO granted immunity in Cohen investigation

Trump Organization CFO granted immunity in Cohen investigation

"They're going to Manafort you, they're going to Cohen you".

"They are the comments of a man who has no respect for the law", said Allan Lichtman, a political historian who teaches at American University. As ever in this tale, however, it is worth following the money.

Weisselberg has been a Trump confidant who started working for his family in the early 1970s.

Although mainstream media members and the president's regular critics immediately pounced on the Cohen-Manafort news as proof that Trump was heading closer to impeachment proceedings and permeated the news cycle with their speculation, Trump's popularity remained virtually unchanged. A source also told NBC News that Weisselberg was the anonymous "Executive 1" mentioned in the criminal information filed by prosecutors in this case.

Trump praised his former campaign chairman as "a courageous man" for not cooperating with investigators - as aides speculated about Trump possibly considering a pardon.

President Donald Trump, known for his 3:00 a.m., multi-part Twitter rants, was largely silent on Sunday amid increased scrutiny of him and his organization.

The issue of whether a sitting president can be indicted has not been tested, though Trump allies point to two previously written legal opinions that weigh in against the prospect.

Mr Weisselberg is the latest to get immunity.

That will replace at least some of the money the Public Investment Fund had been expected to receive from the Aramco IPO. Crown Prince Mohammed first made the plans public in January 2016, when he was still the kingdom's deputy crown prince.

"Mr. Cohen acknowledged the illegal payments while pleading guilty to breaking campaign finance laws and other charges, a litany of crimes that revealed both his shadowy involvement in Mr. Trump's circle and his own corrupt business dealings".

The $150,000 payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal by National Enquirer publisher American Media Inc and the $130,000 payment to porn actress Stormy Daniels far exceeded permissible campaign limits.

TRUMP: "A large number of counts, ten, could not even be decided in the Paul Manafort case".

Trump's legal team has cited the Constitution in arguing that the president should not sit down for an interview with Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election as well as potential collusion with Trump's campaign and obstruction of justice. "Witch Hunt!" - tweet Wednesday.

His former lawyer admitted to campaign finance violations, bank fraud and tax evasion on Aug 22.

U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III declared a mistrial on the 10 remaining charges in Manafort's trial in Alexandria and gave the government until August 29to decide whether to retry Manafort.

Manafort faces another trial in Washington next month on separate charges, including conspiracy to defraud the U.S., money laundering and witness tampering.
