MSNBC national security reporter Ken Dilanian said Wednesday that Michael Cohen’s claim that President Donald Trump has threatened his family could leave the president exposed to another felony charge: witness tampering.
“Witness intimidation is something that the president has been accused of, and what he has been doing with Michael Cohen online,” said host Katy Tur, asking Dilanian if the president’s frequent attacks on his former fixer added up to a crime.
“Many legal experts have said on our network and other places that this could add up to witness tampering and witness intimidation,” replied Dilanian.
“[Convicted Trump presidential campaign manager Paul] Manafort was charged with witness tampering for seemingly less than this, for simply articulating a false story to a witness,” he continued. “Perhaps this will be a subject of the long awaited report by special counsel Robert Mueller, whether this fits into the pattern of obstruction of justice that Mueller appears to be investigating.”

Trump’s mentor Roy Cohn exposed in new documentary that contains an ominous warning about the president’s downfall
President Donald Trump has long looked at infamous attorney Roy Cohn as his political mentor, and at one point during special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation demanded that former Attorney General Jeff Sessions act more like Cohn in assertively defending him.
A new documentary called "Where’s My Roy Cohn?" exposes the history of Trump's hero, who first became famous during Sen. Joseph McCarthy's hearings about purported communist infiltration of the United States government in the 1950s.
Politico senior staff writer Michael Kruse has written up a review of the documentary in which he explains why Trump obviously finds Cohn so appealing: For decades he got away with remorselessly breaking the law.
