US Presidential election heading towards referendum on 'lock him up'

Michael Cohen arrives at federal court for his sentencing hearing

I mean I think it's important for the special investigator to give Congress what he has sometime early in 2019 so that congress can make a determination'. And he shouldn't do it through written questions submitted to Trump's lawyers, but rather face to face and in a setting where Trump must tell the truth or face criminal prosecution when he leaves office. Something that would be perfectly legal to do as a businessman could take on a different standard as a candidate and campaign finance laws are "very open-ended", he said.

Trump has denied he had sex with the women as well as denying any payoff.

"People forget history, the Federal Elections Commission actually ruled on this with John Edwards, they came up with a ruling and said 'You know what?"

"In his allocution, he (Cohen) implicated Trump directly".

"The pieces of the mosaic or the puzzle are coming into place, and the walls are closing in on Donald Trump, and his inner circle, including his family", Blumenthal said.

Grace Millane: Body found in backpacker murder probe
Earlier searches of Ms Millane's accommodation at a backpackers' hostel found several items, including her passport, were missing. The graduate was last seen with a "male companion" at a hotel in Auckland at 9:41pm on Saturday 1 December.

A $150,000 payment by American Media Inc.to silence McDougal was an illegal corporate donation to the Trump's campaign, prosecutors claim.

The first payment in question ― $130,000 to porn star Stormy Daniels ― violated campaign finance law restrictions against donations of more than $2,700 in a general election, according to federal prosecutors. "Priebus was marginalized and mocked before he was abandoned on an airport tarmac", and "Trump had recently stopped speaking to Kelly", who "wasn't even allowed to announce his own resignation despite a reported agreement with Trump that he could do so".

First, as McCarthy says, Justice Department guidance holds that a sitting president may not be indicted.

"I think what can happen is they could indict and he could be tried down the road when he's out of office", McCarthy said. Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, has also said that a president can not be indicted.

Cohen pleaded guilty in August to eight federal crimes, including tax fraud, making false statements to a bank and campaign-finance violations tied to his work for Trump, including the hush payments Cohen made or helped orchestrate.

The Game Awards 2018
The Game Awards 2018 was packed with brand new trailers, new game reveals, and exciting announcements about games new and old. The Game Awards kicks off at Thursday night in LA, live from the Microsoft Theater at L.A.

While the memo does not go into great details, it does provide new information about one of the earliest known contacts between Russian Federation and a Trump campaign associate. I believe Rudy and the president mock the government at their peril.

"To have the Justice Department basically say that the President of the United States not only coordinated but directed an illegal campaign scheme that may have had an election-altering impact is pretty breathtaking", Mr Schiff said.

Although the allegations, released by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY on Friday, are serious, it's not clear that they carry jail time - or much of a punishment at all.

US President Donald Trump on Monday claimed hush payments to alleged former lovers before the 2016 presidential election were legal, pointing to a "simple private transaction". "Pardons should be used judiciously".

Trump himself did not seem troubled by the revelations.
