  • MUELLER'S MISSION: Jerome Corsi Files 'CRIMINAL COMPLAINT' Against Mueller for Seeking 'False Testimony'

One of President Trump's sons got involved in other White House family matters Monday evening. Eisen cited that under the statute it is illegal to "cause or induce any person to withhold testimony". "I'd be probably on a beach somewhere", he said. "But there is substantial and increasing evidence", Eisen added in another social media post.

"Those who said the president's warm and complimentary tweet constitutes witness tampering should be reminded that I have never been contacted by any investigative body and therefore, by definition, this can not be true", Stone told the Daily Caller's Saagar Enjeti. And I'm not going to do that.

Stone said Sunday he would never "bear false witness" against the president.

Documents drafted by Mueller's team as part of a potential plea deal with Corsi - which he has rejected - contained portions of emails he exchanged with Stone in the summer of 2016 about WikiLeaks.

The URL was purchased and then used to send a single message about how they felt about the president, reading: "Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country".

These are the final colorful socks worn by late President Bush
On Monday, President Trump tweeted , "Looking forward to being with the Bush Family to pay my respects to President George H.W. Bush, will be traveling with Bush's casket on his flight to Washington, DC, according to a source familiar with the plans.

Meanwhile, Trump tweeted on December 3 that Mueller is seeking "lies" from witnesses and praised Stone as having the "guts" to withstand pressure from Mueller's prosecutors to "make up stories" about the president.

President Donald Trump said on Twitter that Michael Cohen should serve a prison term for lying to Congress, and asserted that his former personal attorney's crimes were "unrelated to Trump".

On Friday, Cohen, who had already admitted to multiple counts of tax evasion, financial fraud, and campaign finance violations, asked the NY federal court for a "time served" sentence. In his court statement, Cohen said he had lied "out of loyalty" to Trump and his "political messaging".

The comments from Rep. Adam Schiff come days after President Donald Trump's former lawyer pleaded guilty to lying to Congress, raising questions about whether the special counsel would pursue similar charges against others eyed in the Russian Federation probe.

Trump finished off his morning by attacking Mueller and "his out of control band of angry Democrats".
