Target in Mueller probe files complaint against prosecutors

Target in Mueller probe files complaint against prosecutors

In a series of tweets on Monday, the president accused Cohen of co-operating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe in exchange for a reduced sentence on the unrelated tax fraud and campaign finance charges.

Mr Trump added Cohen "makes up stories to get a great and already reduced deal for himself".

President Trump on Monday highlighted a contrast between a former ally and a current one, and he hopes the former ally spends a long time in prison.

So if I were Pauley, I would ask the attorney representing the executive branch, of which President Trump is the embodiment, why he or she is not bound by the policy view and legal position that Cohen "should. serve a full and complete sentence".

The recipients of the overtures are well known, including Paul Manafort, Donald Trump Jr., Michael Cohen, Carter Page, George Papadopoulos, Michael Flynn, Sam Clovis and Roger Stone.

"He lied for this outcome and should, in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence", Trump concluded.




"Early in my reporting that unraveled the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion probe, tying it to Hillary Clinton's campaign and possible Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses", Solomon wrote, "I started to see patterns just as in the old mob meetings: Federal Bureau of Investigation or intelligence-connected figures kept showing up in Trump Town USA during the 2016 campaign with a common calling card".

"Nice to know that some people still have 'guts!'" Trump wrote on Twitter, highlighting Stone's loyalty to the president.

Meanwhile, the special counsel's office stunned Washington with the revelation last week that it had struck a plea deal with former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen, who is speaking to investigators about Trump's real estate pursuits in Russian Federation among other topics.

President Trump is responding to former campaign adviser Roger Stone's vow not to testify against him. Meanwhile, George Conway, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway's husband, suggested this tweet is example of witness tampering.

Federal law makes it a crime to knowingly intimidate, threaten, or persuade another person to withhold testimony in an investigation. "The truth is very bad for their mission!"

"Robert Mueller... and his out of control band of Angry Democrats, don't want the truth, they only want lies".
