Trump Organization CFO granted immunity in Cohen investigation

Trump claims markets would crash if he was impeached

As Mariotti noted, "Individual-1" is how Trump was identified in Cohen's charging docs.

Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg is the latest person in President Trump's orbit to have been granted immunity in the investigation surrounding payments made to women who alleged that they had affairs with Trump.

In addition to the two counts of violating campaign finance laws, Cohen also has pled guilty to six counts of fraud.

Underwood's request was first reported by The New York Times.

Dershowitz on Sunday also commented on the possibility that Trump could replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

US President Donald Trump should be more anxious about prosecutors in NY than about the ongoing Russian Federation probe led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, retired Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz said.

Trump was not mentioned by name in United States District Court in Manhattan on Tuesday but Cohen told a judge the payments to the two women were "at the direction of the candidate, ' and 'for the principal goal of influencing the election" for president in 2016.

Mr. Cohen, who pleaded guilty to federal campaign finance charges, did no legal work in connection with the matter, prosecutors said.

The detail comes on the heels of federal prosecutors reportedly granting immunity to David Pecker, the CEO of the tabloid magazine's parent company, potentially laying bare his efforts to protect the US President - a longtime friend.

"In 2010, at Cohen's urging, the National Enquirer began promoting a potential Trump presidential candidacy, referring readers to a pro-Trump website Cohen helped create".

A former US labor secretary, who is now a leading economist, has called for the annulment of Donald Trump's election victory, calling it 'unconstitutional'.

It is claimed court papers connected to the president's ex-lawyer Michael Cohen say Pecker offered to help Trump squash negative stories during the 2016 election campaign. Cohen has indicated he may cooperate with that inquiry.

Trump has denied the affairs but his lawyer Rudy Giuliani said he knew about the $130,000 payment to Daniels.

A co-operation deal between Mr. Weisselberg and prosecutors could be damaging to Mr. Trump given the executive's long-time role in Mr. Trump's business affairs.

Dershowitz said that while Trump has the right to fire Sessions, "I think it would be a mistake to fire anybody".
