Conservative author Jerome Corsi is aiming to take Robert Mueller to court, claiming the special counsel's investigators tried to coerce him into giving "false testimony" against President Trump.

"Witness tampering", was all Trump biographer Tim O'Brien tweeted after retweeting the president's post.

President Donald Trump on Monday called for his former personal attorney and "fixer" Michael Cohen to receive a "long prison term", while suggesting his former employee's wife and father-in-law also committed crimes.

Lawyers for Cohen asked a federal judge in NY on Friday not to sentence him to prison.

But Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with his Saudi counterpart in Buenos Aires , and again defended the USA embrace of the crown prince.

"Michael Cohen asks judge for no Prison Time", Trump tweeted.

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

"George is right. This is genuinely looking like witness tampering". Stone, Trump wrote, is "essentially stating that he will not be forced by a rogue and out of control prosecutor to make up lies and stories" about him.

"Early in my reporting that unraveled the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion probe, tying it to Hillary Clinton's campaign and possible Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses", Solomon wrote, "I started to see patterns just as in the old mob meetings: Federal Bureau of Investigation or intelligence-connected figures kept showing up in Trump Town USA during the 2016 campaign with a common calling card".

In 2017, 1.8 million people were newly infected and more than 40% of those affected still do not have access to treatment. The new survey found that many people with the virus said they had faced stigma across a number of settings.

"There's no circumstance under which I would testify against the president because I'd have to bear false witness against him", Stone told ABC News.

"File under '18 U.S.C. §§ 1503, 1512", George Conway tweeted, a reference to the section of the USA criminal code that covers witness tampering and obstruction of justice. "The President of the United States should not be using his platform to influence potential witnesses in a federal investigation involving his campaign".

Cohen, once one of the president's closest allies and a top executive at The Trump Organization, last week admitted lying in testimony about contacts with powerful Moscow figures over building a Trump Tower in Moscow. The truth is very bad for their mission!'

"The American people deserve to know how much of the Trump-Russia probe was the result of agent provocateurs and political muckrakers and FISA cheaters, and how much was legitimate law enforcement work", Solomon said.
