Embattled Trump warns impeachment would 'crash' economy

President Donald Trump's personal attorney was an unexpected casualty of the Friday news that Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg was getting immunity in exchange for information related to the Michael Cohen case in the Southern District of New York (SDNY).

The Wall Street Journal first reported Weisselberg's immunity deal.

The news comes a day after it surfaced that David Pecker, chairman of the company that owns the National Enquirer and a longtime friend of President Trump, and American Media Inc. chief content officer Dylan Howard were also granted immunity to tell prosecutors what they know. After the Republican billionaire was elected president, Trump handed control of his business interests to his adult sons and Weisselberg.

Forty-six percent said they heard "a lot" of news about Cohen, while 34 percent had heard some news about Cohen.

A co-operation deal between Mr. Weisselberg and prosecutors could be damaging to Mr. Trump given the executive's long-time role in Mr. Trump's business affairs.

Cohen failed to report more than $4 million in income, according to the criminal information filed against him, resulting in his avoidance of more than $1.4 million in taxes he would have owed the Internal Revenue Service.

The Wall Street Journal and NBC News polled registered voters from August 18 to August 22 and found that Trump had an approval rating of 46 percent, with 51 percent disapproving.

Asked if he would fire Mueller if that were to happen, Trump responded: "I can't, I can't answer that question because I don't think it's going to happen". Campaign finance experts say Trump may now be considered a co-conspirator in Cohen's crime.

In April, he denied he knew anything about the Daniels payment but he told Fox News in an interview aired on Thursday that he knew about payments "later on".

There's one major problem with Trump's plan, though (other than the abject corruption and potential for constitutional crisis, that is): Presidential pardons do not cover state-level charges.

Michael Cohen mentioned Weisselberg's name several times on a recorded phone conversation between Trump and Cohen about payment to kill a story about Trump's alleged relationship with Playboy model Karen McDougal.

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

A year ago, Trump told The New York Times that Mueller would be crossing a "red line" if he began to look at Trump's and his family's finances unrelated to Russian Federation. "This is Michael Cohen not filing taxes".

The White House said it's up to Trump's outside lawyers to deal with much of the news. Trump has routinely denounced the probe as a "witch hunt".
