President Donald Trump’s former “fixer” Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight federal counts, some of which “at the direction of a candidate.”

According to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman the president’s associates believe it’s the official position that will ultimately protect him.

“Trump allies and advisers privately say the office of the presidency is protecting him from what he might otherwise face,” she tweeted Tuesday. “Prosecutors would not have accepted Cohen’s plea if they did not believe he was making true statements about what took place around the campaign finance crimes.”

The comment was in response to Fox News correspondent John Roberts, who tweeted that sources close to Trump are telling him, “remember, the President cannot be indicted.”
