Jeff Sessions doesn't know anything

AnalysisAugust 24 2018 12:01am The Times Trump hopes voters will agree with his A+ self-assessment David Charter Washington

"Jeff Sessions said he wouldn't allow politics to influence him only because he doesn't understand what is happening underneath his command position", Trump tweeted on Saturday. But in the case of ex-campaign manager Paul Manafort - who has steadfastly maintained the code of omerta the president respects so dearly - Trump has reportedly considered wielding his awesome power as a reward.

"He's without resources and owes a lot of money", his lawyer, Lanny Davis, said in television interviews on Wednesday.

Court documents related to Cohen's plea deal said the Trump Organization reimbursed Cohen $420,000 for the payment to Daniels and labeled it as legal fees.

"Every president deserves an attorney general they have confidence in", Trump said, quoting Graham. "We had to be silent because of the sensitivity needed in the middle of a criminal investigation".

The federal prosecutors Cohen struck a deal with said they had evidence corroborating Cohen's admissions, stemming from records obtained from him that included audio tapes, texts, phone records, emails, witnesses with knowledge of the transactions, and records from The National Enquirer. The effect of their alleged conspiracy against campaign finance laws was to defraud American voters, who were prevented from learning potentially relevant information ahead of Election Day 2016.

Earlier it was reported that trump called the U.S. attorney General to launch an investigation against Clinton.

Before the match he was with the team and with me. "We are very unlucky to concede that own goal that put Arsenal on top". And on whether he would have played if he was not sick: "He was sick and today, he was sick".

Trump has called the developments part of a "witch hunt" and "fake news". He explained that the payments Cohen pled guilty to making as illegal campaign financing were not paid for by the campaign and Cohen pled guilty to acts that were not, therefore, even crimes.

Trump also quoted Sen. It was a sign that Flynn's cooperation was still needed - and possible - in the Mueller probe.

Pollster and former Hillary Clinton adviser Mark Penn believes the Michael Cohen plea deal is an attempt to set up President Trump. Trump pointed out that Obama paid large fines for "huge" violations and that nearly every Presidential campaign has committed violations that are generally treated as civil, not criminal, infractions. The contact was revealed in an indictment last month against 12 Russians, accusing them of releasing thousands of private communications in a sweeping Kremlin-orchestrated conspiracy to interfere in the 2016 USA election.

The two women who say they were Trump's onetime paramours are suing to invalidate agreements created to silence them.

He was there in the lobby of Trump Tower in June 2015 when his boss descended an escalator and changed history by declaring his candidacy for president.

Trump's base will remain faithful to him to the bitter end, but the people who really matter are turning against him, and it doesn't bode well for his political survival. Rep. Chris Collins of NY was indicted earlier this month on insider trading charges.
