Trump knocks Michael Cohen in a tweet

Federal authorities investigating whether Cohen committed bank and tax fraud have zeroed in on well over $20 million in loans obta

He said Thursday that the president had been completely cleared by the Michael Cohen affair and there was no reason he should be impeached.

"I don't know how you can impeach somebody who's done a great job", Trump said. "I think everybody would be very poor", Trump said.

He advertised it once more at the end of the interview, claiming Cohen "has gone through a lot, his family has suffered, he's in financial distress - we've set up a Gofundme site, called michaelcohentruth.com, and we're hoping that people who want him to tell the truth about Donald Trump will contribute to that site".

He says, "I don't know how you can impeach somebody who's done a great job".

Trump was responding to speculation that Democrats would seek to impeach the president should they re-take the House of Representatives in November's midterm elections.

Should impeachment be approved by a simple majority in the chamber proceedings would commence in the Senate where two-thirds of senators would have to find the president guilty for him to be removed.

"Unlike Michael Cohen, he refused to "break" - make up stories in order to get a 'deal'".

"This is an investigation that has led to many convictions, where Paul Manafort was convicted on eight counts yesterday", Donnelly said.

Mr Trump has repeatedly denied having any knowledge of the payments at the time, while accepting they were made using his funds - to which Mr Cohen had access.

Seeking to downplay his relationship with Cohen, Trump said his self-described "fixer" only worked for him part-time.

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani: Truth isn't truth
He was referring to a conversation former FBI Director James Comey said he had with Trump in the White House in February 2017. And Trump's account of that conversation differs markedly from Comey's. "We have plenty of credibility", Giuliani snapped.

Under oath in a federal court this week, Cohen admitted that he made the hush payments to McDougal and Daniels "at the direction" of Trump-an admission that legal experts say implicates Trump in serious campaign finance violations. "For 30, 40 years I've been watching flippers".

That tool "almost ought to be outlawed".

Trump also claimed the economy "is the best it's ever been in history", though there are some categories in which that is not accurate.

After first accusing Cohen of making up "stories" to cut a plea deal, he then tweeted that the lawyer's actions were "not a crime", and went further in an interview with "Fox and Friends", saying they were "not even a campaign violation". "The high crimes are giving aid and classified information to our enemies (Russia), abusing the pardon, breaking campaign finance laws, working w/ Russians to get 'dirt" on political opponents, and coming soon from Special Counsel Mueller, obstruction of justice".
