Impeach me and the market crashes

In a recent interview with Fox News, Donald Trump himself acknowledged the possibility of impeachment, stating he wasn't sure if congress could impeach someone who had done "a great job".

US President Donald Trump warned on Thursday (Aug 23) of a stock market crash if he were removed from office, playing his ace card - the economy - to stave off talk of impeachment.

"Hardly", Giuliani replied. "I think it's inevitable that he won't".

This hysteria was unleashed on viewers because of the guilty pleas of the President's former attorney, Michael Cohen.

Trump's former personal lawyer owes at least $1.4 million to the IRS after pleading guilty Tuesday to tax evasion, campaign finance violations and bank fraud, and has racked up millions of dollars in debt.

Trump's job approval among Republican voters was 87 percent in a Fox News poll released Wednesday - almost twice his rating among Americans overall.

Trump did not say whether he would pardon Manafort, but expressed "great respect" for him and argued that some of the charges "every consultant, every lobbyist in Washington probably does".

"I don't care if they would have given them both light treatments but to give one, particularly the newly elected president from day one, this kind of scrutiny of all his campaign aides, of all his associates and basically looking for crimes so that they could flip them", he added.

Among other things, the Dossier claimed that Trump hired two prostitutes to urinate on him in a Moscow hotel room, when then-businessman Trump visited the Russian capital in 2013.

Lawmakers from Trump's own Republican Party warned the president they would not confirm a new attorney general if Sessions - a former senator - was sacked.

Currently, Robert Mueller is still investigating the Trump campaign for collusion with Russian Federation to meddle in the 2016 presidential election.

On Thursday Trump ignored questions from the press on the issue. "They were friends", Ms Earhardt said in an appearance on Fox News's "Hannity" programme on Wednesday night.

Swalwell, who sits on the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, said Democrats would conduct investigations into the Trump administration Republicans were "unwilling" to do and show no one was above the law.

"The agenda comprised questions on how deniable cash payments were to be made to hackers who had worked in Europe under Kremlin direction against the CLINTON campaign and various contingencies for covering up these operations and Moscow's secret liaison with the TRUMP team more generally", the dossier stated. Trump denies ordering Cohen to break the law and says that the money came from his own fortune, not the campaign account.

Trump has largely dismissed those concerns in private, according to officials, saying he would have no trouble naming a new attorney general who would be quickly approved by the Senate.

Trump praised Manafort as "a courageous man!" raising speculation the former campaign operative could become the recipient of a pardon as he argues the prosecution was an overreach by the Justice Department.

And 37 percent disapprove of the special counsel's work.

Under oath, Cohen said he had paid the money "at the direction" of Mr Trump, "for the principal objective of influencing the election".
