Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen sets up GoFundMe page for legal costs

In entering a guilty plea, Cohen said the payments were made "in coordination with and at the direction of a candidate for federal office", in clear reference to Trump.

Trump himself has opined on this possibility in recent days, telling Fox News in an interview that he doesn't "know how you can impeach somebody who's done a great job". It was the first trial victory for prosecutors in the office of special counsel Robert Mueller, whose investigation Trump has derided as a witch hunt. Third, impeachment in the House would be unlikely to translate into conviction in the Senate, even if Democrats win both chambers in the fall. But indictments are another matter.

A president can be removed from office by Congress for "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors".

Donald Trump has told Fox News that his work as president is worthy of an A+ grade.

Federal investigators raided Cohen's office, home and hotel room in NY earlier this year and seized various electronic devices and documents which reportedly include information that Cohen paid porn star Stormy Daniels so as to keep her silent about accusations of an affair with Trump.

"As the son of a Polish holocaust survivor, the images and sounds of this family separation policy [are] heart wrenching", Michael Cohen said in a since-deleted tweet, according to the Journal.

Among the transactions the lawsuit called illegal was a $10,000 payment to the Unicorn Children's Foundation for a portrait of Trump purchased at a fundraising auction in 2014.

"The investigations related to the email were handled with kid gloves, and the investigations related to Trump. with all-out prosecutorial force of government and deep state might", Penn said.

Longtime Clinton attorney Lanny Davis, now representing former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, said Cohen has never been to Prague, as claimed in the "dossier" of unverified political dirt on Trump funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

He added: "My heartfelt thanks goes to the courageous first responders who were so quickly on the scene following the attack". In Tuesday's incident, the vehicle slammed into barriers that had been extended following the Westminster Bridge attack.

During his three-day testimony, Gates described his part in shielding millions of dollars in more than a dozen offshore accounts from United States tax collectors.

Pecker reportedly had a safe full of documents relating to Trump hush money pay off and the disclosure that he like Cohen had flipped clearly unnerved Trump.

Avenatti tweeted that the Cohen pleas should "permit us to proceed with an expedited deposition of Trump under oath about what he knew, when he knew it, and what he did about it".

The Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel, which provides legal advice and guidance to executive branch agencies, has held that a sitting president can not be indicted. But Mueller will file a report with the Department of Justice that will be sent to the House.

It's also the latest sign that Cohen is broke.

"The President of the United States is now, formally, implicated in a criminal conspiracy to mislead the American public in order to influence an election", The New Yorker's Adam Davidson wrote. Still, it could give Mueller a boost.

Cohen also revealed through Davis on Wednesday that he has information that might be of interest to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, charged with investigating alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation in the runup to the 2016 election.

Trump has already shown he's not afraid to use his pardon power, particularly for those he has viewed as unfair victims of partisanship.
