Trump wants 'full and complete' sentence for his former lawyer Cohen

Trump described Mueller as a "rogue and out of control prosecutor".

Since Cohen's legal team is asking federal court that he not be sentenced to prison for lying to Congress, Trump got on his phone and showed no mercy to his former personal attorney.

Cohen admitted making false statements about the project in 2017 to Senate and House intelligence committees, which at the time were investigating possible connections between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. As and Merriam-Webster both pointed out, that's not how the word is supposed to work.

He said President Trump can help by declassifying relevant documents, as he promised months ago.

Once one of the real estate tycoon's closest allies and a top executive at The Trump Organization, Cohen has become a key witness in Mueller's investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russians in 2016.

In a late-night court filing Friday, attorneys for Cohen wrote that their client was a changed man who was cooperating extensively with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III as well as other prosecutors conducting probes related to Trump and his 2016 campaign.

In the tweet, Trump asked why Cohen was allowed to get away with "terrible" things "having to do with fraud, big loans, Taxis, etc." - a reference to Cohen's legal trouble around a tax evasion case involving a NY taxi business - without serving a prison sentence.

MSNBC White House correspondent Peter Alexander agreed with Jackson that Trump was likely trying to obstruct justice by sending a message to Stone and others caught up in Mueller's probe.

Mr Trump made his views clear in a tweet on Monday.

In an ABC News interview on Sunday, Stone, a veteran Republican political consultant, denied any impropriety and said he would never give evidence against Trump, with whom he has worked for four decades.

"He lied for this outcome and should, in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence", the president wrote.

After the plea deal, Trump described Cohen as weak and a liar and said he himself did nothing wrong in relation to the Moscow project. "The President of the United States should not be using his platform to influence potential witnesses in a federal investigation involving his campaign". The truth is very bad for their mission!'

If you click on the "G-20.In" link Giuliani inadvertently created, you'll get a comment about Trump.

Neil Katyal, who served as acting United States solicitor general during the Obama presidency, responded: "George is right".
