Cohen would refuse a pardon from Trump, his ex-lawyer says

One of Trump's biggest allies over the last decade, Michael Cohen, recently pleaded guilty to multiple felony counts, three of which are directly related to the president.

In another Sunday morning tweet, Trump thanked Ken Starr, a longtime judge who himself served as Independent Counsel during the 90s probe of President Clinton, for publicly expressing doubts in the Mueller investigation.

In an interview on Sunday, Giuliani called Cohen pathetic and suggested he was lying to fit the situation he was in.

Regarding a separate federal inquiry into hush-money payments by Trump to two women alleging sexual encounters with him, Giuliani said they did not violate federal election law because, he said, they were meant to help Trump avoid embarrassing his family - not to influence the 2016 election.

And, she pointed out, Giuliani is also making the baffling argument - not that collusion didn't happen, as the president has said repeatedly - but that collusion isn't a crime.

"I know what he was concerned about".

"The president said there was a proposal, it was discussed with Cohen, there was a nonbinding letter of intent and it didn't go beyond that", Giuliani told The New York Times last month.

In April this year, the Federal Bureau of Investigation had conducted a search at Cohen's home, office, and hotel rooms and seized hundreds of documents and computer files, related to hush agreements of adult Stormy Daniels, pertaining to her alleged affair with Trump.

There's no apparent end to President Donald Trump's legal troubles - and he seems to know it. "Nothing at the Trump Organization was ever done unless it was run through Mr. Trump", Cohen said.

In his statement ahead of his sentencing, Cohen, at times close to tears, apologized and said "blind loyalty" to Mr. Trump "led me to choose a path of darkness over light". Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort faced sentencing for conspiracy and obstruction of justice in September, though he may now face more charges after violating the conditions of his plea deal. In the past, Trump has denied any knowledge of the payments.
