Trump wants 'full and complete' sentence for Cohen

MUELLER'S MISSION: Jerome Corsi Files 'CRIMINAL COMPLAINT' Against Mueller for Seeking 'False Testimony'

Eric Trump rips George Conway, Kellyanne Conway's husband, over 'utter disrespect' he shows her

Cohen, who is co-operating with a federal probe into whether Trump's campaign worked with Russian Federation to sway the election, is scheduled to be sentenced on December 12 after pleading guilty to tax evasion, making false statements to a bank, campaign finance violations, and lying to Congress.

Cohen, who worked with Trump for well over a decade, is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Trump demanded jail time for his former attorney, Michael Cohen, who pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations and to lying to Congress in relation to his work with Trump.

Today, the president is at it again-once again rendering legal opinions about ongoing criminal matters concerning Michael Cohen, presently before a federal court, on Twitter.

Cohen admitted making false statements about the project in 2017 to Senate and House intelligence committees, which at the time were investigating possible connections between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

The tweet about Stone drew immediate criticism from several lawyers, who said it amounted to witness tampering.

The police force said that it wanted to return the ring "to the happy couple" and asked the public to help find the unlucky pair. Although the couple gave up on retrieving the diamond-encrusted jewelry, the NYPD's special operations unit were on the case.

As well as any potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Mueller has also been probing whether Trump tried to obstruct justice - including by firing Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey a year ago.

Trump used his online proclamations on Monday to slam Michael Cohen over his plea deal with Robert Mueller.

Stone pledged his loyalty to the president during an interview with ABC's This Week on Sunday, stating that there would be "no circumstance" in which he would testify against Trump. He went on to suggest Stone was essentially stating he will not be forced by - what he claims is - a rogue and out of control prosecutor to make up lies and stories.

"File under '18 U.S.C. §§ 1503, 1512", George Conway tweeted, a reference to the section of the USA criminal code that covers witness tampering and obstruction of justice.

18 U.S.C. § 1512 is, plain and simple, witness tampering. Cohen admitted to making the payments at Trump's behest to buy Clifford's silence and, in turn, influence the election.

It is highly inappropriate for a president to insert himself into a judicial process, said Jens Ohlin, a professor at Cornell Law School.
