President Trump is 'flipping' out over plea agreements and immunity deals

The prospect of Cohen telling Mueller that Trump knew in advance about the June 2016 meeting has hung over the Russian Federation probe since CNN, citing anonymous sources, reported last month that Cohen was willing to share the information.

Davis also is hedging suggestions he made on television last week that Cohen could tell special prosecutor Robert Mueller about whether Trump was aware of and encouraged Russian hacking during the 2016 campaign before it became publicly known. "But I am not sure".

"The President's comments regarding flippers would seem to indicate a nervousness about what his associates might reveal to prosecutors and thus what might put him in jeopardy of impeachment and eventual legal prosecution", Princeton professor Keith Whittington told the Daily News.

For Michael Cohen and Donald Trump, it's always been about money and loyalty.

Weisselberg, an intensely private, loyal numbers-man for Trump, was mentioned on an audiotape that Cohen's lawyer released in July of Cohen talking with Trump about paying for Playboy model Karen McDougal's silence in the months leading up to the election.

The results come after two prominent figures in Mr. Trump's business world were caught up in federal investigators' case against Mr. Cohen.

Dershowitz said that while Trump has the right to fire Sessions, "I think it would be a mistake to fire anybody".

"They are the comments of a man who has no respect for the law", said Allan Lichtman, a political historian who teaches at American University. Additionally, Trump Jr. has said he didn't have the lawyer's name prior to the meeting.

And aside from Trump, he is perhaps best qualified to answer two of the big questions about the businessman-turned-president over the years: Is he really worth $10 billion, as he claims, and what's in his tax returns?

While previous weeks have seen long streams of largely rambling discourse striking back at the Mueller investigation and others he has perceived as enemies, the President stuck to retweeting himself and, in one case, replying to himself.

"Just another phony story by the Fake News Media!" he tweeted.

"Comical to watch @CNN covering for leftist hack @carlbernstein", tweeted the younger Trump.

"So Michael Cohen does not have information that President Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting with the Russians beforehand or even after?"

Whatever you think of Trump - and this news outlet has emerged as a rare agnostic voice when it comes to his administration - there is clearly egg all over the faces of his critics this week (as well as the liberal mainstream media outlets which regurgitated the apparently unfounded speculation).

Speaking on "Fox News Sunday", Lewandowski sought to distance Trump from his former attorney and denied that Cohen played any significant role in Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.
