George Conway Suggests New Donald Trump Tweet May Break The Law

Eric Trump and George Conway

On Friday, Cohen, who had already admitted to multiple counts of tax evasion, financial fraud, and campaign finance violations, asked the NY federal court for a "time served" sentence. He further accused Cohen of fabricating "stories to get a GREAT & ALREADY reduced deal for himself".

US President Donald Trump on Monday called for "a long prison term" for his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen, after Cohen admitted lying to Congress about pursuing a real estate deal with Russian Federation on Trump's behalf during the 2016 election campaign. Cohen's statements marked the first time the president was implicated in a federal crime since Mueller's probe began.

Putting the attack on Cohen aside, a lot of people were confused about Trump's decision to capitalize and misspell "Scott Free" in his tweet. Trump said. "He lied for this outcome and should, in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence". Does the USA attorney's office have to move to allow Cohen to withdraw his guilty plea and have the court dismiss the information?

In a follow-up tweet, Trump praised his longtime ally and Republican operative Robert Stone for recently stating that he would "never testify" against him.

"Special Counsel Mueller and his prosecutorial staff should respectfully be removed from his office and their practice of the law and a new Special Counsel appointed who respects and will obey common and accepted norms of professional ethics and the law and who will promptly conclude the so-called Russian collusion investigation which had been illegally and criminally spinning out of control", the complaint reads.

Several lawyers said Trump's tweet amounted to witness tampering.

A slam: Attorney George Conway, a frequent critic of Trump who also is the husband of Trump aide Kellyanne Conway, responded to Trump's Stone tweet with one of his own. "The President of the United States should not be using his platform to influence potential witnesses in a federal investigation involving his campaign". He pointed to a statute in the U.S. Code that defines witness tampering and obstruction of justice.

The president then said it's nice to know that some people still have guts. "He's the head of the executive branch".
