President Trump's Personal Bookkeeper Granted Immunity in Cohen Investigation

Donald Trump's long-time financial gatekeeper took immunity to discuss what he knew about payments to the president's former lawyer Michael Cohen, numerous USA media outlets reported on Friday.

David Pecker, a friend of Mr Trump who is chief executive of the publishers of the "National Enquirer" tabloid magazine, has also reportedly been given immunity by NY prosecutors.

US President Donald Trump's account of his knowledge of payments to an adult film actress and a former Playboy model has shifted. If all his people are out under pressure and tell the secrets they know, it's bad for him.

"If there is nothing improper that went on there, Donald Trump has nothing to worry about", Toobin told CNN.

Asked about what he thought of a last-minute order by Mr Trump to catch a flight to Iowa to tend to some business during the campaign, Mr Weisselberg said in one deposition that "it doesn't matter what I thought".

According to their sources, crew members working on the film "are being dismissed and are free to look for new work". The third installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise has been put on hold, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Cohen was once looked at as one of the Trump's most committed and loyal backers, even going so far as to say he would "take a bullet" for him.

Through his lawyer, Cohen has said that collecting contributions through a GoFundMe page, set up after his guilty plea this week, is the only way to ensure that the truth about the President comes out.

Cohen's attorney, Lanny Davis, confirmed this week that his client was "present at a discussion with" Trump and Trump Jr. related to the meeting but did not confirm details of what was discussed.

Prosecutors have also granted immunity to David Pecker, a longtime Trump ally and chief executive of a tabloid publishing company, to describe his company's role in suppressing stories about the alleged affairs, according to a person with knowledge of the inquiry.

Their recently-unveiled Igorek ("little Igor"), a giant, heavy manned robot designed for " carrying out engineering and combat tasks ", is proof of that.

Most legal experts agree that a president cannot be indicted while in office, but allegations that Trump was involved in a crime could factor in a debate over whether he should face impeachment.

Cohen pleaded guilty on Tuesday to handling hush money for Mr Trump in violation of campaign finance laws. He also said he was only aware of the payments "later on".

In July, Cohen released an audio tape in which he and Mr Trump apparently discussed plans to buy Ms McDougal's story from the Enquirer.

"The only thing I would say to the president is do not do anything rash because Mueller would love for you to fire him, so that you will be impeached", he said.
