In a series of tweets, Trump said Monday morning that Roger Stone, a Republican political operative and longtime Trump ally, has "guts" for saying that he won't testify against the President.
"I'd have to make things up, and I'm not going to do that", he added.
President Donald Trump praised the "guts" of longtime informal advisor and political trickster Roger Stone for refusing to testify against him in special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing Russian Federation probe. Earlier, he shot at his former personal attorney Michael Cohen for taking a plea deal in the case.
CNN also reported Friday that Cohen was under the impression Trump would offer him a pardon in exchange for staying on message in support of the President in discussions with federal prosecutors, according to two sources.
Mueller's team is looking into whether Stone, an informal adviser to Trump during the 2016 campaign, was in communication with WikiLeaks before the website publicized stolen emails from Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.
Trump wrote that Cohen did "terrible" things that were "unrelated to Trump" and said that he believes Cohen should "serve a full and complete sentence".
In an interview with ABC News on Monday, Corsi, who said that he chose to reject a plea deal he said was offered to him by Mueller, provided ABC News with copies of a plea agreement he said was drafted by Mueller's prosecutors, which cites three emails involving Stone.
President Trump's son Eric Trump on Monday accused George Conway of showing "utter disrespect" towards White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, his wife. But if Mueller has solid evidence that it's Stone and Manafort who are lying, and Cohen who is telling the truth, then how can this be anything other than witness tampering?
Stone himself had an answer to the suggestion that Trump's tweet may have violated witness tampering statutes.
