  • Sanders says it's ridiculous to accuse the lying president of lying

President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump praised White House defender who was sacked for sexual harassment: report Cohen's father said he didn't survive Holocaust to have his name "sullied" by Trump: report NYT: Trump after Cohen plea mused, 'How did we end up here?' MORE said in an interview broadcast early Thursday that he gives himself an "A+" for his time in office thus far.

It is a sign of the pressure on Donald Trump that he is not only having to answer questions about the possibility of impeachment, but having to make economic arguments against it.

The Manafort conviction was the first case sent to trial by the special prosecutor probing Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

"I don't know how you can impeach somebody who's done a great job", Trump said.

In practice, an indictment is highly unlikely: Since 2000, the Justice Department position has been that a sitting president is "immune from indictment as well as from further criminal process".

Trump says he shouldn't be impeached because he's doing a "great job".

Trump claimed his former lawyer "made the deals", and insisted that Cohen's actions were "not a crime", while going on to claim that "campaign violations are considered not a big deal, frankly".

Trump tried to play down his relationship with Cohen, his longtime "fixer", who claims the president directed a hush-money scheme to buy the silence of two women who say they had affairs with Trump. Outside allies of the White House said they had received little guidance on how to respond to the events in their appearances on cable news.

But after Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations on Tuesday, Waters couldn't control herself.

Cohen had said Tuesday he secretly used shell companies to make payments used to silence former Playboy model Karen McDougal and adult-film actress Stormy Daniels for the objective of influencing the 2016 election.

After four days of deliberation, jurors found him guilty of eight counts: five of making false income tax returns, two of bank fraud and one of failure to report foreign bank and financial accounts.

The US president lauded the 69-year-old Manafort for leaving his fate to a jury rather than striking a plea deal - a move that has sparked speculation Manafort hopes for a pardon.

"One of the reasons I respect Paul Manafort so much is he went through that trial", Trump said. Sometimes you get some pretty good information by watching shows.
