Donald Trump urges 'full and complete' jail term for Michael Cohen

He makes up stories to get a GREAT & ALREADY reduced deal for himself, and get....

"He lied for this outcome and should, in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence", the president wrote.

Trump accused Cohen of fabricating stories about his Russian Federation dealings to minimize his sentence on multiple counts of tax evasion, financial fraud and campaign finance violations that he has admitted in federal court in NY. Trump has denied any wrongdoing as well as the extramarital affairs.

Last week Cohen also admitted to lying in testimony about contacts with powerful Moscow figures over building a Trump Tower in Moscow. Cohen's sentencing date is set for December 12.

In a pre-sentencing pitch to the court on Friday, Cohen's lawyers asked that he be given no jail time, noting his ongoing cooperation with Mueller's sprawling investigation.

According to Corsi's complaint, they wanted him to demonstrate that he acted as a liaison between Stone and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on one side and the Trump campaign on the other, regarding the release of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee.

A recent Rudy Giuliani tweet contained several typos that made it ripe for a hilarious - although sad yet accurate - statement about President Donald Trump.

On Monday morning, Trump sung Stone's praises for making such a declaration: "Nice to know that some people still have 'guts!'". Some legal experts, though, say they may not amount to witness tampering if Trump didn't directly tell others what to say or not say.

Longtime attorney George Conway, who is married to Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway responded immediately by tweeting out the citation of a federal witness tampering statute.

Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.) weighed in later.

The tweets add to mounting questions about whether Trump is taking steps to improperly influence witnesses in an investigation that has enraged him and shadowed his administration.

Trump showed no signs of sounding a lighter tone about Cohen or the Mueller probe during official events related to Bush's death and funeral.

Trump used his online proclamations on Monday to slam Michael Cohen over his plea deal with Robert Mueller. "The truth is bad for their mission'".

Mueller, a Republican, was selected by Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, a Republican appointed to his position by Trump.
