"It nearly ought to be outlawed", he added.

"Michaels Cohen's attorney clarified the record, saying his client does not know if President Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting (out of which came nothing!)", Trump tweeted on Saturday.

In fact, emails released by Trump Jr. himself make clear that he was explicitly told an attendee at the meeting would be a "Russian government attorney" who wanted to provide damaging information about Clinton.

Dershowitz, a Harvard Law professor emeritus, explained on "Fox & Friend" on Monday that Trump has constitutional defenses to Mueller's Russian Federation probe, but that is not the case with respect to the investigations being conducted by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY. "I'm not troubled by his comments".

Media outlets are reporting that President Donald Trump's bookkeeper for his personal and business affairs for decades has been granted immunity in the federal probe of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

Mr Trump has repeatedly denied collusion with Russian Federation, and Russia denies involvement in the 2016 election.

Days later, it was revealed that longtime Trump friend David Pecker, the CEO of the company that owns the National Enquirer, cooperated with prosecutors in the case against Cohen.

The Trump Organization's Chief Financial Officer, Allen Weisselberg, was reportedly granted legal immunity in the investigation of Michael Cohen. The discussions took place as a jury deliberated charges that Mueller brought against Manafort in Virginia, according to the Journal.

Trump praised his former campaign chairman as "a courageous man" for not cooperating with investigators - as aides speculated about Trump possibly considering a pardon.

Doug Deason, a Texas-based donor and major Trump supporter, said: "In no way, shape or form did we think we were hiring St. Trump to fix the morals of the country". "They're looking very, very hard", Dershowitz insisted. If they can target president Trump, they can target you, they can target anyone.

Davis said he should not have expressed such confidence in his information.

Whether the 71-year-old is continuing to help prosecutors was unclear.

CNN did not respond to numerous requests for comment from The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Weisselberg's knowledge of the inner workings of the Trump Organization may be second only to Trump's.

From his first job helping with the books for Trump's father, Fred, in 1973, the Pace University graduate has gotten his fingers into almost every aspect of the family business - vetting deals, arranging financing, auditing, managing cash - eventually rising to oversee all finances of its far-flung operations.

The unraveling of their relationship was laid bare Tuesday when Cohen pleaded guilty to eight criminal charges and said in federal court that he broke campaign finance laws as part of a cover-up operation that Trump had directed.
