George Conway Suggests Trump Tweet Obstructed Justice

President Trump declared his former longtime attorney Michael Cohen should serve a "full and complete sentence", after Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress over a project the Trump Organization was considering building in Moscow.

"He lied for this outcome and should, in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence", the president wrote. Two women had alleged extramarital affairs with Trump, which the president denies.

Trump then turned his attention to another central character in the Mueller probe: former close adviser Roger Stone, who seemed suspiciously plugged in about WikiLeaks' 2016 plans to release emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign that were illegally obtained by Russian operatives.

Solomon has deduced from these members of Congress that some of the contacts that occurred in 2016 were related to the "dossier".

The charges were brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the presidential election, not the prosecutors in NY who handled Cohen's previous guilty plea in August to other federal charges involving his taxi businesses, bank fraud and his campaign work for Trump. Cohen's sentencing date is set for December 12.

Tweeted Trump: '"Michael Cohen asks judge for no Prison Time".

On Monday morning, Trump sung Stone's praises for making such a declaration: "Nice to know that some people still have 'guts!'". This is genuinely looking like witness tampering.

The rest of the internet ― and especially George Conway ― groaned. Meanwhile, George Conway, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway's husband, suggested this tweet is example of witness tampering.

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

Legal experts immediately pounced upon the tweet as a potentially illegal attempt to influence a witness.

The complaint, which Corsi had threatened for days, is the latest escalation between Mueller's team and its investigation targets. "The truth is very bad for their mission!" he also tweeted.

"Robert Mueller... and his out of control band of Angry Democrats, don't want the truth, they only want lies".

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