With new details emerging this week related to the president’s former attorney, Michael Cohen’s guilty plea, the President himself is now considered an unindicted co-conspirator to a crime.
Cohen, who pleaded guilty to eight counts, including two counts of campaign finance violations related to payments he made or helped make in order to silence women claiming they had affairs with candidate Trump, implicated the President in his plea deal. Cohen told prosecutors that Mr. Trump directed these payments, which were apparently made to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal.
With the new revelations that the President is now an unindicted co-conspirator, there has been an increase in talks of impeachment, especially among Democrats in Congress.
The President’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who happened to be overseas during Monday’s Manafort guilty verdict and Cohen’s guilty plea, spoke to the UK’s Sky news earlier today about the prospects of impeachment.
“There’s no reason. He didn’t collude with the Russians, he didn’t obstruct justice. Everything [Michael] Cohen says has been disproved. You’d only impeach him for political reasons. And the American people would revolt against that,” Giuliani stated.
Soon after Giuliani’s statement, which clearly tries to discredit Cohen’s claims in his plea deal, AMI’s David Pecker was reported to be cooperating with investigators in exchange for immunity. Pecker, who appears to be the one who conspired with Cohen, and thus the president, to cover up allegations of affairs, would be a key witness to collaborate Cohen’s claims
