Trump Begins Monday Morning With Tweets Attacking Michael Cohen

A prominent conservative writer at the heart of Robert Mueller's ongoing Russian Federation probe filed a criminal complaint against the special counsel this week; accusing the federal investigator's team of seeking "false testimony".

Corsi, who is connected with political operative Roger Stone, had said that he was being improperly pressured by Mueller's team to strike a plea deal, Fox News reported. "Nice to know that some people still have guts!"

A promise: Trump took note of Stone's weekend vow that he will never testify against the president.

It was revealed last week that Trump spoke more extensively during the presidential election with Cohen about the proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow than Cohen admitted to Congress a year ago, which Cohen said while pleading guilty Thursday in federal court to a charge from Mueller's office.

'Michael Cohen asks judge for no Prison Time, ' Trump vented on Twitter Monday morning, following his return from a trip to Argentina.

Opponents believe the advice will reveal Attorney General Geoffrey Cox's misgivings about the Brexit agreement. It means MPs will debate and vote on Tuesday on whether or not to refer the case to the Standards Committee.

The purported threat of a false statement charge, according to the complaint, pertains to a July 2016 email from Stone asking him to "get to" Assange and get the pending emails.

Stone appeared on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" on Sunday and said he would refuse to go against the president.

Attorney George Conway's nearly daily attacks via Twitter reached a new level of scrutiny on Monday night when Eric Trump inserted himself into their family squabble by calling out Conway over his "utter disrespect" for his wife.

This led many, including Conway, to accuse Trump of obstruction of justice and witness tampering, with the attorney posting a tweet referring to constitutional statutes for obstruction of justice and witness tampering. On Monday, the president wrote that Cohen did "TERRIBLE" things and that Mueller and "his out of control band of Angry Democrats, don't want the truth, they only want lies".
