Did Trump cross a line with his tweet about Roger Stone?

Did Trump cross a line with his tweet about Roger Stone?

Stone is reportedly under special counsel Robert Mueller's microscope for his communications with WikiLeaks, and the innocent president wants his innocent friend not to talk to prosecutors about how innocent they both are. "I'd have to make things up, and I'm not going to do that".

He said he had not been contacted by Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor investigating possible collusion or coordination between Trump's campaign team and Russian Federation.

The URL was purchased and then used to send a single message about how they felt about the president, reading: "Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country".

"Nice to know that some people still have 'guts!'" Trump wrote.

Cohen's lawyers said he had fully cooperated with Mueller's investigation and would continue to do so, and deserved to avoid imprisonment. He accused Cohen of making up "stories to get a GREAT & ALREADY reduced deal for himself" and should, "in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence".

"Michael Cohen asks judge for no Prison Time", Trump complained on Twitter.

A promise: Trump took note of Stone's weekend vow that he will never testify against the president.

Rep. Adam Schiff said Sunday on ABC's "This Week" that emails between Stone and an associate, Jerome Corsi, are "inconsistent" with Stone's testimony before the congressional committee.

President Trump's son Eric put out a tweet Monday night accusing George Conway of "utter disrespect" toward his wife, White House aide Kellyanne Conway, apparently because of Conway's public comments criticizing the administration.

Conway, an attorney and outspoken critic of Trump, retweeted the president's social media post, writing: "File under '18 U.S.C §§ 1503, 1512.'" Conway was referencing Constitutional statutes for obstruction of justice and witness tampering.

Trump followed up his attacks on Cohen with yet another slam on Mueller, whose investigators secured the additional guilty plea Friday and allowed him to reach the cooperation agreement.
