Trump ally Roger Stone begs for money to fight Mueller

The Virginia-Pilot says a new report reveals Trump is considering the move because his current White House counsel is adamantly against the move to pardon Trump's former campaign chairman.

Within minutes another major revelation broke.

Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski "knew Michael [Cohen] was going to become a problem", which is why he "warned everybody" Cohen "was not somebody who we wanted at the campaign".

Does this signal that the process is coming to an end? "Someone is saying that they overheard a conversation, which I told Donald Trump in October of 2016 what exactly would be in the WikiLeaks disclosures and when they would be disclosed". Cohen’s lawyer is walking back his assertions that his client could tell a special prosecutor that Trump had prior knowledge of a meeting with a Russian lawyer to get damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

May can deliver on Brexit, and campaigners are gearing up for a fight over whether the country should hold another referendum. The government has maintained throughout the negotiation process that it is preparing for all possible outcomes.

CNN reported last month that Cohen was claiming to have witnessed Trump being informed of the Russians' offer by Trump Jr. and that the then-candidate approved the meeting.

Davis told PBS's "NewsHour" on Wednesday: "I believe that Mr. Cohen has direct knowledge that would be of interest to Mr. Mueller that suggests - I'm not sure it proves - that Mr. Trump was aware of Russian government agents hacking illegally, committing computer crimes, to the detriment of the candidate who he was running against".

And Giuliani, though the public face of the Trump legal team, is hardly the primary negotiator with Mueller's office.

According to The Guardian, Stone said in a text message that Mueller "may frame me for some bogus charge in order to silence me or induce me to testify against the president". "I express my regrets that I could not confirm what I told you", he said. Miller's attorney, Paul Kamenar, contends Mueller's appointment is unconstitutional on the grounds of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein lacking the authority to appoint the longtime Federal Bureau of Investigation official as special counsel because he was not confirmed by the Senate.
