Trump's tweeting veers into suspected witness tampering territory

Trump's tweeting veers into suspected witness tampering territory

In the tweet, Trump asked why Cohen was allowed to get away with "terrible" things "having to do with fraud, big loans, Taxis, etc." - a reference to Cohen's legal trouble around a tax evasion case involving a NY taxi business - without serving a prison sentence. He further accused Cohen of fabricating "stories to get a GREAT & ALREADY reduced deal for himself".

So, what to make of the president's tweet that he does not think that what Michael Cohen did was a crime?

"Michael Cohen asks judge for no Prison Time".

So, to recap: In Trump's opinion Stone has "guts" because he'll never testify against Trump.

Putting the attack on Cohen aside, a lot of people were confused about Trump's decision to capitalize and misspell "Scott Free" in his tweet.

US President Donald Trump on Monday called for "a long prison term" for his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen, after Cohen admitted lying to Congress about pursuing a real estate deal with Russian Federation on Trump's behalf during the 2016 election campaign.


Having just returned from a trip to Argentina for the G20 summit, Trump turned his attention to what he calls special counsel Robert Mueller's "witch hunt" into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

"Dr. Corsi has been threatened with immediate indictment by Mueller's prosecutorial staff unless he testifies falsely against Roger Stone and/or President Donald Trump and his presidential campaign, among other false testimony", Corsi's lawyers, Larry Klayman and David Gray, said in a complaint submitted to acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker.

There was a strong case against the president for witness tampering because of his prior acts and statements, like dangling the possibility of a pardon for his Manafort, legal experts said.

Conway, an attorney and outspoken critic of Trump, retweeted the president's social media post, writing: "File under '18 U.S.C §§ 1503, 1512.'" Conway was referencing Constitutional statutes for obstruction of justice and witness tampering.

Trump also attacked longtime lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen and Mueller in his tweetstorm.

"George is right. This is genuinely looking like witness tampering".
