Donald Trump Praises Roger Stone 'Guts' for Standing Up to Robert Mueller

So far, five people in Trump's orbit have pleaded guilty to federal charges.

"George is right. This is genuinely looking like witness tampering". Also, Paul Manafort, a convicted felon who just blew up his cooperation deal with Mueller, is "a courageous man" who "refused to 'break'" and therefore has earned "such respect" from Trump.

Last week Michael Cohen, the president's former longtime personal attorney, confessed to lying to Congress about Trump's business dealings with Russian Federation as part of a plea agreement with Mueller.

Trumps' praise for Stone came just after he tore into Cohen, whose latest plea related to holding back information about a planned Trump tower in Moscow.

Trump demanded jail time for his former attorney, Michael Cohen, who pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations and to lying to Congress in relation to his work with Trump.

On Monday, Trump ripped into Cohen on Twitter.

'You mean he can do all of the bad, unrelated to Trump, things having to do with fraud, big loans, Taxis, etc., and not serve a long prison term?' The president asked.

Mr Trump added Cohen "makes up stories to get a great and already reduced deal for himself". Stone insisted he had no contact with Julian Assange of WikiLeaks in regard to the leak of Democratic emails, something Mueller is investigating. "Trump is genuinely melting down, and no good lawyer can represent him under these circs", added Neal Katyal, a law professor and former United States acting solicitor general. "Nice to know that some people still have "guts!"," he added.

Stone has said he expected to get indicted by Mueller.

A punctuation error in a recent tweet written by Rudy Giuliani has turned into an opportunity for the Internet to roast Donald Trump.

"The President of the United States should not be using his platform to influence potential witnesses in a federal investigation involving his campaign", Warner said in a tweet.

"It is incredible how much problematic conduct Trump has committed in public-like this open evidence of witness tampering".

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. Corsi wants the Department of Justice to open criminal and ethics probes into Mueller and his staff.

"I require a small platoon of excellent lawyers and they're not cheap", he said.

Jerome Corsi said Monday that the prosecutors were trying to entice him to lie to a grand jury and threatened to indict him.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel's office, declined to comment.

The Russia investigation has dogged Trump for two years.
