Putin news conference drove Michael Cohen away from Trump

Chris Cuomo This was a bad day for Trump

Trump later contested whether the campaign-finance counts to which Cohen plead where even valid.

In that interview, Trump said the hush payments were financed with his own money - to which Cohen had access - and that while he had no knowledge of them at the time, he had since been fully transparent.

"Later on I knew", Trump told Fox News Channel when asked if he knew about the payments.

"He was with a lot of different people over the years and I feel very sad about that", he said.

A USA grand jury has indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers on charges of hacking the computer networks of Clinton's campaign and the Democratic Party. I'm telling you flat out we're going to come for him. Those are crimes. And he confessed to them under oath, saying he willfully violated those laws at Trump's direction. "And they didn't come out of the campaign, and that's big".

Former Plano councilman says West Nile almost killed him
In a two-page press release, Interior Health said two dead ravens from the Kimberley area tested positive for West Nile. An infected mosquito bite sent healthcare executive Ben Harris to Medical City Plano past year .

Speaking to MSNBC on Wednesday morning, Lanny Davis wouldn't go into detail about the material but said his client "know information" that would be of interest to the Special Counsel, referring to Robert Mueller investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Cohen on Tuesday pled guilty to five counts of tax evasion, two counts of campaign finance violations and one count of making false financial statements.

'If anyone is looking for a good lawyer, I would strongly suggest that you don't retain the services of Michael Cohen!' Trump wrote.

Cohen did not specify the women's names, but the sums correspond to a payment known to have been made to adult film star Stormy Daniels just before the election to silence her claims of a one-night stand with Trump - and another destined for former Playboy model Karen McDougal.

Cohen's lawyer, Lanny Davis, told NPR's Rachel Martin that his client believes Trump is "both corrupt and a unsafe person in the Oval Office" and that Cohen would not accept a pardon from Trump.

Western and Southern Open: Roger Federer relieved to 'hang tough' in Cincinnati
Federer, the second seed, began his tournament with a comfortable 6-4 6-4 win over Peter Gojowczyk after a first-round bye. The former top tennis player in the world defeated Canadian player Milos Raonic 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 for a place in the semis.

Cohen, 51, told Judge William Pauley III that "in coordination with, and at the direction of, a candidate for federal office", he arranged payments to two women for their silence "for the principal goal of influencing the election". Since the Mueller investigation began, the president's former campaign manager, former deputy campaign manager, former foreign policy aide, former national security adviser, and former lawyer and fixer have all either pleaded guilty or been found guilty of federal crimes.

Obama's 2008 campaign was fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for failing to file a series of 48-hour notices for around $1.8 million in campaign contributions in the closing weeks of the campaign, according to a document obtained by Politico.

Trump's lawyers are insisting the president did nothing wrong. Trump said on Twitter. In 1830, the Supreme Court sided with a man who refused a presidential pardon from Andrew Jackson.

On Wednesday, the White House said Mr Trump was "not concerned at all" by Cohen co-operating with FBI investigators. He added, "Such respect for a fearless man!" A mistrial was declared on 10 other counts after jurors could not reach a consensus. It's hard to get hopes too high, considering how many scandals have already broken upon the White House, and yet left its current occupant seemingly untouched.
