Donald Trump warns of market meltdown if he's impeached

He had been summoned to give evidence to prosecutors earlier this year in the investigation into Cohen, Donald Trump's longtime former lawyer. In his own eyes, the decision to spill his master's secrets has assumed a noble tinge. As ever in this tale, however, it is worth following the money.

Weisselberg has worked for the Trump family for more than four decades, including as treasurer for the Donald J. Trump Foundation.

Lewandowski suggested that Cohen acted as the Trump Organization's enforcer, saying Sunday that one of his strengths was "intimidating people" into cooperating on the real estate company's behalf. "I didn't like to interact with Michael, ' Corey Lewandowski told 'Fox News Sunday" in an interview.

The Wall Street Journal and NBC News cited anonymous sources to report on Friday that Allen Weisselberg, Trump Organization finance chief, received immunity to speak to prosecutors in the investigation of hush money Cohen paid to two women, who claimed to have affairs with Trump. And what he has now pled guilty to, by and large, has nothing to do with the campaign or the Trump Organization. Another person with knowledge of Trump's thinking said the president continues to direct much of his ire at Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who infuriated him by recusing himself from the Russian Federation probe.

Mr Weisselberg is the latest to get immunity.

However, at no point during his presidency has Trump's approval rating exceeded 50 percent - at least, not by any trusted poll.

Trump said that Cohen was his so-called "fixer" in an interview but he doesn't know where that term came from and the attorney for his company was 'not somebody that was with me that much'.

The Cohen case is unlikely to lead to any legal consequences for Trump while he is in office, experts say, although it could prompt calls for his impeachment should Democrats take the House in November.

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.

Although Manafort found himself in special counsel Robert Mueller's crosshairs as part of the probe into allegations of collusion between Trump campaign officials and Russian interests, none of Manafort's charges were linked to the campaign. "Witch Hunt!" - tweet Wednesday.

Last week saw the conviction of Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, on eight criminal counts, as well as guilty pleas by his former attorney, Michael Cohen, on various criminal charges as well. The judge declared a mistrial on the other 10 counts.
