Times in One Day! Big Media Obsessed with Impeaching Trump

Under oath, Cohen said he had paid the money "at the direction" of Mr Trump, "for the principal objective of influencing the election".
Incensed over the deal Mr Cohen has made, Mr Trump said it might be better if "flipping" was illegal because people "just make up lies".
The president of the United States lied, undeniably, and his White House still won't admit it. Mueller "has investigated and charged four figures from the Trump campaign - Manafort, Gates, Flynn, and Papadopoulos - and not charged any with crimes involving collusion appears to be significant", argues Byron York, "If there were in fact a Trump-Russia collusion scheme, they would likely have been involved". He added later that the money was from his personal wealth and not part of of the campaign's finances. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss the case publicly.
Clinton's obsequious fixer has been all over the media in recent days hinting that Trump's former attorney has bombshell information about the Russian Federation investigation that Mueller would be "interested in".
The Enquirer did not publish her kiss-and-tell, and she says she was tricked.
However, having, for a year now, been marching White House aides and campaign associates of Trump before a grand jury, Mueller has to be holding more cards than he is showing.
Trump, on Twitter and in the taped television interview, has accused Cohen of saying things that are not true in order to gain favorable treatment from prosecutors.
Yet no other administration figure has caused Trump more agitation than Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who infuriated the president by recusing himself from the Mueller investigation.
"I put in an attorney general that never took control of the justice department", he complained to Fox News, fueling rumors he may fire Sessions and install someone more pliant.
Trump said during the interview that he would give himself an "A+" if asked to grade his performance in office so far, citing his successful appointment of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court and predicting that Brett Kavanaugh, his next high court pick, will be confirmed as well. Sessions quickly hit back, declaring that he and his department "will not be improperly influenced by political considerations". Sessions is leaving open the possibility that a special counsel could be appointed to look into Clinton Foundation dealings and an Obama-era uranium deal.
Through his lawyer, Donald Trump's former "fixer" says collecting contributions through a GoFundMe page set up after his guilty plea this week is the only way to ensure the truth comes out about the president. "I expect loyalty." Trump fired Comey months later.
Some party strategists express caution that too much talk on the campaign trail ahead of this November's election could alienate independent voters and rally Trump's base. We've seen it before, most prominently, when he flat out stated, in an interview on NBC, that he had "this Russian Federation thing" in mind, and the idea that it was "a made up story", when he chose to fire Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey. A candidate can spend without limit on their own campaign, although it still must be disclosed. He has long viewed loyalty as paramount. It's not something that has gone down well even with his friends and allies.
Donald Trump's lawyer has been pictured on a golf trip to Scotland while the U.S. president faces mounting legal and political threats. "For 30, 40 years I've been watching flippers", Mr Trump said.
"If he were asked, 'Were you aware of Mr. Trump's level of awareness before the hacking illegally done by a foreign government?"
"They make up things and now they go from 10 years to they're a national hero".
