Trump's finance chief Allen Weisselberg is granted immunity from prosecution

Trump Complained About “Flipping” this Morning A Few Hours Later His Longtime Ally Reportedly Flipped On Him

What's next for president Donald Trump?

The Daniels payment was charged as an excessive personal contribution and the National Enquirer money was charged as an unlawful corporate contribution, both "for the principle objective of influencing the election", Cohen said in court.

President Donald Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen appears in front of members of the media after a closed door meeting with the Senate Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill, Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017, in Washington. Trump can not pretend these crimes did not occur or that they have nothing to do with him.

David Pecker, CEO of the parent company of the National Enquirer, has been granted immunity in exchange for providing information about Michael Cohen and Trump.

"I took control of the Department of Justice the day I was sworn in", Sessions said in a statement.

Forty-six percent said they heard "a lot" of news about Cohen, while 34 percent had heard some news about Cohen.

Before the latest development, 46 percent of American voters approved of Trump's job performance.

Hurricane Lane's Path: Category 5 Storm Barrels Down on Hawaii
A very big storm is coming for Hawaii, an island state that's largely avoided encounters with major cyclones in recent memory. A hurricane watch is in effect for the Big Island and Maui as islanders brace for potential effects from Hurricane Lane.

It was all about getting stuck in, not throwing our wicket away, having that patience to grind out the opposition. England look to be in all sorts of problems after their defeat at Trent Bridge.

For a president who had promised to hire only the best, the twin results represented a stunning rebuke.

As part of that probe, Cohen's offices were raided and investigators looked into his finances. At least Paul Manafort had nothing to say about Trump or his campaign. As his scheme was unraveling, he was counting delegates for Trump's Republican National Convention balloting. Weisselberg has worked for Trump for decades and now runs the company along with Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump.

It is claimed court papers connected to the president's ex-lawyer Michael Cohen say Pecker offered to help Trump squash negative stories during the 2016 election campaign.

"I know this is a hard position for him to be in, but I think it would be bad for the country, it would be bad for the president, it would be bad for the Department of Justice for him to be forced out under these circumstances", said Senator John Cornyn, the No. 2 Senate Republican.

"First of all, it is an absolute crime for a corporation to make any contribution to a political campaign", he said. Meantime, Cohen also committed bank and tax fraud relating to his NY taxi and other businesses. With Cohen's involvement, the publication began questioning President Barack Obama's birthplace and American citizenship in print, an effort that Trump promoted for several years, former staffers said.

Cohen was embraced by the cable news networks as an irresistible foil to Trump. Flynn has yet to be sentenced.

"My advice to the president, I never gave it to him privately because I'm not his lawyer, but on television is, 'Don't fire, don't pardon, don't tweet and don't testify, '" Dershowitz said on "This Week". "But there are no constitutional defences to what the Southern District is investigating".
