New York AG plans criminal investigation into Michael Cohen's taxes

Trump claims markets would crash if he was impeached

Embattled Trump warns impeachment would 'crash' economy

Trump has repeatedly claimed he is the victim of a "witch hunt.' He touted Manafort as a 'brave man" while accusing Cohen of making up stories to get a deal.

Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg is the latest person in President Trump's orbit to have been granted immunity in the investigation surrounding payments made to women who alleged that they had affairs with Trump.

Cohen pleaded guilty on Tuesday to handling hush money for Mr Trump in violation of campaign finance laws.

"According to the state attorney general of New York", Unger noted, "that was money laundering".

An attorney for Cohen didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

In a separate development, the NY attorney general is moving to open a state criminal tax investigation into Cohen.

Americans would revolt if President Donald Trump is eventually impeached under some phony "political" reason by the newly-elected and potentially hostile presidential Congress, Rudy Giuliani has claimed. Cohen's also not done opening up on what he knows about Trump, Davis said.

Cohen failed to report more than $4 million in income, according to the criminal information filed against him, resulting in his avoidance of more than $1.4 million in taxes he would have owed the Internal Revenue Service.

But the agency cautioned, "Lane is forecast to remain a risky hurricane as it draws closer to the Hawaiian Islands". Especially in this high terrain, such rainfall could lead to devastating flash flooding and mudslides.

"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".

David Pecker, who runs the National Enquirer and is a long-time pal of Trump, was granted immunity in the federal investigation into Michael Cohen in exchange for information on hush money deals. But then, in a "Fox & Friends" interview, Trump began to dramatically play down his relationship with Cohen.

"Sacha Baron Cohen is releasing his own Trump tape - a clip from Da Ali G Show on which President Trump appeared in 2003".

The Manafort charges stem nearly completely from his personal businesses but they came to light after he went to work for Trump.

The new charges would center around whether the Trump Organization falsified the representation of the payment made to Daniels. This practice resulted in an illegal 2016 campaign contribution consisting of a $130,000 payoff to Stormy Daniels, an adult-film star alleging an affair with Trump.

Allies wonder what Trump might do if the pressure continues to increase. A co-operation deal between Weisselberg and prosecutors could be damaging to the president given the executive's longtime role in Trump's business affairs.

Michael Cohen leaves a U.S. Federal Court building in Manhattan on Tuesday.

"One of the reasons I respect Paul Manafort so much is he went through that trial", Trump said.
