Top House Democrats raise prospect of impeachment, jail for Trump
Dec 10, 2018, 02:52
McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor, said on "Fox & Friends" Sunday that attorneys with the Southern District of NY are "clearly" going after Trump, given recent revelations about statements by Michael Cohen, his former personal lawyer, to the us district court.
The 40-page sentencing memo filed by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY for former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen is the basis for an indictment against the president, according to Andrew McCarthy.
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who's been mentioned for White House chief of staff and attorney general, said the language in Cohen's sentencing memo should concern the president's legal team.
President Donald Trump faces the "real prospect of jail time" after he is no longer in the White House, Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.) said Sunday on "Face the Nation".
The President's former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, has pled guilty to a number of federal crimes and has been informally cooperating with federal law enforcement for several months.
Trump has dismissed the latest allegations against him in connection with the payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal and allegations of Trump campaign contacts with Russian Federation to help him win the election.
Trump has denied the affairs and has not been accused of any crimes related to the payments. Whether a president can be prosecuted while in office remains a matter of legal dispute.
'Cohen himself has now admitted, with respect to both payments, he acted in coordination with and at the direction of Individual-1, ' the prosecutors wrote.
Prosecutors say the payments violate federal campaign finance laws.
Dean, who served as Nixon's counsel from 1970 to 1973, was chosen by the president to lead a special investigation into the Watergate scandal. Schiff also said Cohen has recently been cooperating with the investigation.
"It puts the issue squarely before the Justice Department whether a sitting president should be indicted or whether the Justice Department has to wait until he's out of office", Schiff said in an interview.
In a filing released on Friday, Mueller revealed that a Russian national claiming close ties to the Kremlin reached out to Cohen to propose government-level "political synergy" during the election.
Trump has called for the end to the Mueller probe, but a Republican lawmaker, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, told ABC News, "I've always supported the Mueller investigation and continue to do so because I think it's in the best interest of everyone involved, including, by the way, the president". He has previously indicated his panel would seek to look into the Trump family's business ties with Russian Federation.
The president tweeted on Friday in response to the filings that the new information "totally clears" him, though the court documents say otherwise.
Republican Senator Marco Rubio told CNN he was waiting for the results of the Russian Federation investigation and related federal probes.
I want to emphasize that we're a few steps away from such an article of impeachment in Trump's case. Murphy spoke on ABC, and King was on NBC's "Meet the Press".
Cohen had been hoping prosecutors would make a similar recommendation in his case. In the latest filings Friday, prosecutors will weigh in on whether Cohen deserves prison time and, if so, how much.
Schiff said there is talk that Trump has "dangled" pardons in front of political allies who may face jail time, but said there is a "bigger pardon question" afoot.
