Also, prosecutors' claim that Cohen did it at Trump's direction would, if true, make Trump as guilty as Cohen. Federal prosecutors have sought prison time for longtime Trump fixer Michael Cohen. However, McCarthy points out that there's a five year statute of limitations on the alleged campaign finance offense which occurred, if at all, in 2016. Russian Federation denies interfering in the 2016 election and Trump has denied any collusion occurred.

"This is a president named as a co-conspirator - allegations he committed at least two felonies to try to manipulate the 2016 election". "And the Cohen crimes to which he pleaded guilty were committed in 2013, '15 and '16-so you can do the math".

"The pieces of the mosaic or the puzzle are coming into place, and the walls are closing in on Donald Trump, and his inner circle, including his family", Blumenthal said.

The claims, if true, appear to be campaign finance violations. Under US law, campaign contributions, defined as things of value given to a campaign to influence an election, must be disclosed.

Scott has described Andy McCarthy's article "Why Trump is likely to be indicted by Manhattan US Attorney".

However, McCarthy made it clear Trump will not be indicted while he is still president as per guidance from the Justice Department.

Federal prosecutors have accused President Trump of committing a federal crime by directing illegal hush money during the presidential campaign to two women-adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal-during the presidential election.

Schiff took his predictions a step further and said not only does he believe Trump would be indicted but he also said the next sitting president would have to decide whether or not to pardon Trump. The president's mendacity is so aggressive, his malfeasance so common, that his everyday behavior no longer surprises and these days rarely elicits condemnation from other Republicans.

"To have the Justice Department basically say that the President of the United States not only coordinated but directed an illegal campaign scheme that may have had an election-altering impact is pretty breathtaking", Mr Schiff said.

"This is the Southern District of New York", Napolitano said during an appearance on Fox News' "America Newsroom" on Monday morning. "And he was doing it, his instructions, that's why the payments were made and they were for his benefit". "Pardons should be used judiciously". He's pardoned Joe Arpaio, the former Arizona sheriff who was convicted of criminal contempt for disobeying a judge's order, and I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, a Bush administration official convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice in a leak case.

As more evidence of collusion between Russian Federation and President Donald Trump emerged Friday, pundits wondered just how compromised the Trump administration is by the 2016 campaign's links to Russian Federation. In June, Giuliani told NBC's "Meet the Pres" that while Trump "probably does" have the power, "pardoning himself would be unthinkable and probably lead to immediate impeachment".
