In federal court on Monday, Cohen pleaded guilty to making false statements to Congress in 2017 in relation to Trump's efforts to build a Trump Tower hotel in Moscow.

A conservative author in the crosshairs of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation has filed a complaint with the Justice Department, alleging prosecutors tried to coerce him to give false testimony.

So, what to make of the president's tweet that he does not think that what Michael Cohen did was a crime?

So if I were Pauley, I would ask the attorney representing the executive branch, of which President Trump is the embodiment, why he or she is not bound by the policy view and legal position that Cohen "should. serve a full and complete sentence". Earlier, he fired at his former personal attorney Michael Cohen for taking a plea deal in the case.

Cohen said that he had lied to Congress to minimize the links between Trump, who was seeking the Republican presidential nomination, and the Moscow project that Trump's company was pursuing at the time.

"He lied for this outcome and should, in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence", Trump concluded.

The tweet about Stone drew immediate criticism from several lawyers, who said it amounted to witness tampering.

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.

"Dr. Corsi has been threatened with immediate indictment by Mueller's prosecutorial staff unless he testifies falsely against Roger Stone and/or President Donald Trump and his presidential campaign, among other false testimony", Corsi's lawyers, Larry Klayman and David Gray, said in a complaint submitted to acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker. "Nice to know that some people still have "guts!"," he added.

As well as any potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Mueller has also been probing whether Trump tried to obstruct justice - including by firing Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey past year. "The truth is very bad for their mission!" he also tweeted.
