President Trump should be more anxious about prosecutors in NY than about the ongoing Russian Federation probe led by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, retired Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz said Sunday.
How is Trump's policy of "Be loyal to be, and I will treat you like dirt" working?
The Manhattan District Attorney's office is trying to determine what role the organization may have had in the arrangement of a payment Michael Cohen made to Stormy Daniels, the adult-film actress who said she had a sexual relationship with Donald Trump.
The Wall Street Journal first reported Weisselberg's immunity deal.
Floride : une fusillade pendant un tournoi de jeu vidéo fait plusieurs morts
Le tournoi se déroulait dans un bar de la zone de Jacksonville Landing, qui regroupe restaurants et lieux de divertissement. Le bureau de la police de Jacksonville demande à la population de ne pas se rendre sur une zone encore " non sûres ".
Federal prosecutors in NY granted immunity to publisher David Pecker in exchange for information in the investigation into hush-money payments by Trump attorney Michael Cohen. As part of the deal, he testified under oath that he made the hush-money payment to keep Daniels quiet about her alleged affair with Trump in order to preserve his candidacy in the 2016 election.
Mr Weisselberg, who has been at Mr Trump's side for four decades, is also treasurer of the Trump Foundation, the family charity under investigation for misuse of... Dear God, what's next?
Cohen found ways to profit from the arrangement, making millions from corporations by selling access to Trump, but felt adrift and isolated from Trump, according to two people familiar with his thinking who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss private conversations.
But federal prosecutors in NY quickly subpoenaed Weisselberg to appear before a grand jury.
Cohen's lawyer has said his client is "more than happy" to help the collusion inquiry.
Nick Young arrested for obstruction of justice in Hollywood
Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson Officer Mike Lopez said that Young was arrested Friday for delaying an investigation. Nick Young is said to have been arrested in Hollywood on Friday night.
It is not uncommon for prosecutors to offer immunity to a person who may have wittingly or unwittingly facilitated a crime if investigators decide that person is more of a witness than a perpetrator, or if prosecutors decide they can not get necessary testimony without offering some degree of immunity.
Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign-finance violations and other charges on Tuesday. Though Cohen has already been charged with tax crimes on the federal level, the state attorney general's office can bring its own set of charges because NY state's double jeopardy laws don't apply to tax crimes. The tax department subpoenaed Cohen this week.
A spokeswoman for the attorney general declined to comment. But Axios reported Thursday that Cohen, in closed-door hearings with Congress past year, said he was unsure if Trump knew about the meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya.
Dershowitz, an informal Trump adviser, said in an appearance on ABC News's "This Week" that the expanding probe by prosecutors in the Southern District of NY could spell the greatest peril for Trump because of the lack of constitutional protections for the president at that level.
Cohen is asking the public for help paying for his legal defense, and one anonymous donor already has put up $50,000, the Associated Press reported.
