Facing legal threats, Trump says impeachment would 'crash' economy

Federal authorities investigating whether Cohen committed bank and tax fraud have zeroed in on well over $20 million in loans obta Michael Cohen admits under oath Trump told him to break electoral law

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), never one to hold back, has thrown down the gauntlet - calling it the "responsibility" of Congress to impeach President Donald Trump for what she deems "high crimes".

"I tell you what, if I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash, I think everybody would be very poor".

Cooperation with authorities by Pecker and Howard could further implicate Trump in connection with the payments, which prosecutors have said violated campaign finance laws.

"You would see - you would see numbers that you wouldn't believe in reverse", he said.

President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump praised White House defender who was sacked for sexual harassment: report Cohen's father said he didn't survive Holocaust to have his name "sullied" by Trump: report NYT: Trump after Cohen plea mused, 'How did we end up here?' MORE said in an interview broadcast early Thursday that he gives himself an "A+" for his time in office thus far.

The back-to-back legal blows have raised speculation that Democrats would launch impeachment proceedings if they win the House of Representatives this fall.

Some of his answers in the Fox and Friends interview were less than convincing, particularly as he tried to distance himself from his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen and the payments he arranged.

Giuliani: Trump Tower meeting not collusion because Clinton info was 'not pursued'
The puzzling statement, however, reflected an ongoing theme in Giuliani's interviews in defense of Trump. In the matter of "truth is not truth", understood as intended, Giuliani is right and Todd is wrong.

Trump conversely praised Manafort for going to trial - where the president's former campaign chief was found guilty of eight counts of financial fraud.

In an interview with Fox News aired on Thursday, Trump said he paid Cohen out of personal funds and the payments were meant to resolve a personal matter, not to benefit his campaign.

The president has denied having affairs with the women, and he and his team have denied he had any knowledge of the payments before they were made.

Here's what the case is about and how campaign-finance laws work. "Thirty, 40 years I have been watching flippers".

Trump says he shouldn't be impeached because he's doing a "great job".

The investigation into Cohen stemmed in part from a referral by U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating whether there was coordination between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation. "It nearly ought to be outlawed". Both claim to have had affairs with Trump.

Trump in the interview also said in regard to his former lawyer Cohen that he thought it would be better if "flipping", in which someone's confidant helps prosecutors in return for a lighter sentence, "were illegal because people "just make up lies".
