"All the people who would know the worst about you". "No Collusion, so they go insane!" Media speculation is growing about possible impeachment, especially if the Democrats gain control of the House of Representatives in the November midterm elections, along with the possibility of indictments against both Cohen and Trump himself. "BAD!" And he insisted the White House was "Very calm and calculated".
On Monday, Michael Cohen's office and hotel room were raided by a dozen Federal Bureau of Investigation agents on search warrants that had been executed by the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY, which Berman leads, according to Cohen's attorney Stephen Ryan.
Donald Trump has reportedly been doing nothing but eating and watching television in recent days, with the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on his longtime lawyer apparently leaving the president in an angry stupor. "I have assurances that it's not". Adding that the situation was "disgraceful" and a "witch hunt".
"I'm not trying to delay anything but nor do I see a particular rush", Hendon said. "These government tactics are also wrong because Mr. Cohen has cooperated completely with all government entities, including providing thousands of non-privileged documents to the Congress and sitting for depositions under oath". According to media reports, the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized records related to a payment supposedly made to silence film actress Stephanie Clifford about her relationship with Trump.
Cohen is Trump's virtual vault - the keeper of his secrets, from his business deals to his personal affairs - and the executor of his wishes.
Uncertainty over exactly what Federal Bureau of Investigation agents seized from Cohen comes as Trump faces an intensifying probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into whether his presidential campaign colluded with Russian Federation.
Still, he told CNN, he remains loyal to the president.
But the president's ire has been directed at Mueller and his boss, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
For South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham, one of the co-sponsors, the bill is precautionary. She wants to be freed from a non-disclosure agreement under which she was paid $US130,000 to keep quiet about that encounter shortly before the 2016 presidential election.
Those people spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the confidential details.
Trump spent Monday evening calling associates to vent and gauge their reaction to the news. A brief they filed in response to Cohen's court action revealed that he'd been under investigation for months and that the FBI had searched multiple email accounts.
Cohen looks like he could be in a lot of trouble, and that may mean trouble for President Trump, too.
It was an extraordinary seizure of documents that could yield an extraordinary witness against the USA president - his own attorney. Trump's homeland security adviser, Thomas Bossert, exited Tuesday.
"James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!" Months later, McDougal said that in 2016 she had sold a story about her alleged affair with Trump to the National Enquirer but that the newspaper had bought it only to bury the story because they had a relationship with Trump.
Cohen has been involved in the New York City yellow cab industry since the 1990s, going into business with his Ukraine-born father-in-law.
