Judge: Neutral Authority Will Review Documents Seized From Trump Lawyer

Eugene Robinson A viral

But Thursday on Fox, Trump appeared to confirm that Cohen had been acting on his behalf.

Trump said on the Fox News program "Fox & Friends" that Cohen was responsible for only "a tiny, tiny little fraction" of his legal work.

Trump rambled on for roughly 30 minutes, making several noteworthy remarks about his 2013 trip to Moscow, his controversial relationship with rapper Kanye West, and his feelings about the Justice Department.

Trump went on to attempt to distance himself from Cohen, in keeping with the president's tendency to claim he has little to do with associates once they get into trouble...."This doesn't have to do with me", Trump said.

Although it still seems unlikely that the bill will receive full votes from the Senate and House of Representatives, let alone be signed into law by Mr Trump, the fact that three Republicans on the committee voted in favour could indicate growing concern about the president's state of mind among congressional Republicans. But Trump also nearly went on to promise that he would commit additional crimes, only the good sense of the Fox and Friends hosts cut him off before he could promise to obstruct justice again.

In a Manhattan federal court filing Thursday, prosecutors said they are now OK with appointing a "special prosecutor" to take over the review of documents seized in an FBI raid on Cohen's office, residence and hotel room. Comey is a leaker and a liar. Mr. Trump's rant on Comey then pivoted to his travel to Russian Federation as part of the 2013 Miss Universe pageant. By the way, I did say welcome to Washington.

So... Trump did know that Cohen was working to hush up Stormy Daniels? In 1990, Trump himself took the Fifth 97 times to avoid answering questions, mostly about his adultery, during a divorce deposition. After ranting like a toddler claiming that the memos were both "phony" and classified (at the same time, somehow), Trump incredulously turned his ire towards "fake news" CNN and Hillary Clinton.

"These critical decisions concerning a sacred privilege are not for a team of prosecutors to make", Trump attorney Joanna Hendon wrote in a court filing last week.

He admitted to staying a night in Moscow.

"Another gift from the heavens in this case", Avenatti said. Trump criticized federal agents for exercising search warrants on his lawyer Michael Cohen and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Trump also complained that many other appointees, including judges, are held up in the approval process in Congress.

'We'd talk to you all day but it looks like you have a million things to do, ' Kilmeade told him.

Comey has denied the charge.

Elsewhere in the interview, he took aim at "lying" James Comey, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department. And I've been really able to really escape that cloud because the message now everyone knows is a fix - it's a witch hunt.

A conscious effort by Trump to mislead the Federal Bureau of Investigation director could lend weight to the allegation, contained in the private research dossier compiled by a former British spy in 2016, that Trump engaged in compromising activity during the trip that exposed him to Russian government blackmail. Manafort is charged with allegedly engaging in conspiracy and money laundering.

-71 percent think it's likely Trump will fire Mueller before the investigation is complete.
