Trump friend Roger Stone denies they discussed a pardon

  • Eric Trump chimed in on the state of Kellyanne Conway's marriage. Big mistake

The rebuke came after Trump said on Twitter his pal Roger Stone has "guts" for not wanting to testify against him.

"Let's go back to those emails because I think they're mischaracterized, and they need some context", Stone told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" Sunday after Stephanopoulos read the emails.

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".

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".

"He lied for this outcome and should, in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence", Trump added.

Mueller's team is looking into whether Stone, an informal adviser to Trump during the 2016 campaign, was in communication with WikiLeaks before the website publicized stolen emails from Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

Chelsea vs Fulham, Premier League
Chelsea will look to cement their position in the top four with a win when Fulham arrive at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon . But Maurizio Sarri confirmed he picked up a knock during the match and was therefore an absentee at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Trump slammed both Cohen and Mueller in a series of tweets shortly after Cohen pleaded guilty in federal court last Thursday.

Cohen is cooperating into Mueller's probe into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government and has filed a plea agreement to ensure a shortened sentence.

Yesterday, after a morning tweet storm by President Trump, George Conway, the husband of the Counselor to the President of the United States, Kellyanne Conway, implied that the president had broken the law with a single tweet.

In his tweet, Conway was referencing statutes related to witness tampering and obstruction of justice.

Cohen's lawyers said he had fully cooperated with Mueller's investigation and would continue to do so, and deserved to avoid imprisonment.

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