Trump praises Roger Stone's 'guts,' slams former lawyer for cooperating with Mueller

Trump praises Roger Stone's 'guts,' slams former lawyer for cooperating with Mueller

Attorneys representing Jerome Corsi filed an ethics complaint Monday accusing prosecutors in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office of pressuring their client to provide "false testimony" against Republican operative Roger Stone and President Trump.

Trump tweets Monday: "You mean he can do all of the bad, unrelated to Trump, things having to do with fraud, big loans, Taxis, etc., and not serve a long prison term?"

Trump accused Cohen of fabricating stories about his Russian Federation dealings to minimize his sentence on multiple counts of tax evasion, financial fraud and campaign finance violations that he has admitted in federal court in NY.

Cohen, once Trump's self-described "fixer", admitted he lied to Congress when he said efforts to pursue the Moscow project ended in January 2016, when they actually continued until June 2016, after Trump had clinched the Republican presidential nomination. Now, however, he claims that talks about the project continued until June 2016, were widely talked about within the organization, and that a press secretary to Russian President Vladimir Putin had been in contact with the company - something which the Kremlin confirmed over a year ago.

He fired off a third tweet praising former confidant Roger Stone for stating over the weekend he would not testify as part of any probe against Trump.

"The American people deserve to know how much of the Trump-Russia probe was the result of agent provocateurs and political muckrakers and FISA cheaters, and how much was legitimate law enforcement work", Solomon said.

President Trump on Monday highlighted a contrast between a former ally and a current one, and he hopes the former ally spends a long time in prison.

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. Asked if he expected a pardon from Trump - who has not taken a pardon for convicted former campaign manager Paul Manafort off the table - Stone replied: 'I've had no discussion regarding a pardon'.

"He lied for this outcome and should, in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence", the president wrote.
