Putin news conference drove Michael Cohen away from Trump

  • Mr Cohen may obtain leniency in exchange for his cooperation with the Mueller's investigation

After initially denying knowledge of the hush money, Trump was heard on a 2016 recording made by Cohen that appears to show Trump was informed of at least one of the payments.

Cohen first attracted national attention when Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said he paid her the $130,000 shortly before the November 2016 election to keep quiet about a 2006 sexual encounter with Trump.

In the end, only a tiny fraction of the seized material was found to be covered by the privilege, according to court filings.

Fox News Channel's Outnumbered co-host Marie Harf told the panel on Wednesday that President Donald Trump could have been booked into jail on Tuesday if he wasn't the sitting president. However, press secretary Sarah Sanders declined to answer all of the questions, including whether other women received similar payments from Trump.

The developments of today will permit us to have the stay lifted in the civil case & should also permit us to proceed with an expedited deposition of Trump under oath about what he knew, when he knew it, and what he did about it.

If Donald Trump ever wants to retain the legal services of Michael Cohen again for some reason, he's going to have to wait several years. A spokesman did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Cohen also argued that prosecutors had violated attorney-client privilege by seizing what his lawyers said could be thousands or more items related to his work as a lawyer. "So, Lanny Davis' statement is very misleading and deceptive", Jarrett said.

Cohen admitted that "in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office", he kept information that would have harmed Trump from becoming public during the 2016 election cycle.

Instead, the warrant was sought by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY, not Special Counsel Mueller.

Talk of a plea deal comes days after The New York Times reported that Cohen is also under investigation for potential tax and bank fraud, possibly exceeding Dollars 20 million via loans obtained by the taxi medallion business he owns with his family.

Giuliani lashed out at Cohen on Tuesday, calling him a "devious little rat" and saying he had a history of lying. "His day of reckoning serves as a reminder that we are a nation of laws, with one set of rules that applies equally to everyone". The plea deal does not include cooperation by Cohen, and it is unclear if he will follow through on his previous assertion to friends, according to sources, that he is willing to talk to Mueller.

Mueller's investigation, which began in May 2017, has resulted in the indictment of more than 30 people and five guilty pleas.

In April of this year, Federal Bureau of Investigation agents executed a search warrant on Cohen's home, office, and hotel room seizing millions of documents on paper and digital media.

Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer, speaking on the Senate floor on Wednesday, labelled Mr Trump a "co-conspirator" and demanded that the confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which is scheduled for early September, be delayed in the wake of Mr Cohen's plea. You know, I wouldn't necessarily prejudge the question of whether a president should be impeached for this conduct.
