Trump claims markets would crash if he was impeached

Trump has insisted that Manafort and Cohen were charged with matters totally unrelated to his presidential campaign.

But Flake, who is retiring from the Senate and is often critical of Trump, said he thinks the president will hold off.

David Pecker, the chief executive of the company that publishes the National Enquirer, was granted immunity by federal prosecutors for providing information about Michael Cohen and Donald Trump in the criminal investigation into hush-money payments for two women during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to people familiar with the matter.

The longtime chief financial officer of the Trump Organization, Allen Weisselberg, was given immunity by federal prosecutors in NY during the course of the Michael Cohen Investigation, according to a person with knowledge of the matter. This practice resulted in an illegal 2016 campaign contribution consisting of a $130,000 payoff to Stormy Daniels, an adult-film star alleging an affair with Trump.

"The special counsel is going to charge Donald Trump Jr. with lying to the FBI", Stone said. He mentioned he raised the postulate that Cohen will own data about Trump's data because he had a solid feeling that will seemingly be the case.

Trump ally and right-wing dirty trickster Roger Stone sent out a fundraising email to his supporters this week that asks them to give him money so he can fight what he claims is an impending indictment from special counsel Robert Mueller.

It is claimed court papers connected to the president's ex-lawyer Michael Cohen say Pecker offered to help Trump squash negative stories during the 2016 election campaign.

Cohen spent years in the Trump Organization apparently putting out fires Trump started.

He was there in the lobby of Trump Tower in June 2015 when his boss descended an escalator and changed history by declaring his candidacy for president. And if the accusations roped in other Trump Organization figures who might have knowledge of suspicious activity, and who could not be dissuaded from talking by the possibility of a pardon, things could get even messier than they are now. But Cohen was never given a prominent spot in the campaign.

President Trump has repeatedly tried to demand absolute loyalty from top law enforcement officials and has fired some who choose to fulfill their constitutional duties rather than following the orders of a president whose administration, campaign, and business interests are mired in scandals, federal investigations, indictments and convictions.

And despite telling confidants that he thought he had a shot at White House chief of staff after the election, Cohen was never given a West Wing job.

Prosecutors have granted immunity to two executives at the National Enquirer tabloid for testimony about President Donald Trump's involvement in payoffs to silence women about his liaisons, media reports said Thursday.
