If anyone is looking for a good lawyer, I would strongly suggest that you don’t retain the services of Michael Cohen!

Michael Cohen’s testimony again the Trump Foundation could actually result in State indictments of Don Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka! State crimes are not pardonable by the U.S. President.

BREAKING: In running away from Cohen's claims today, Trump bumbled right into admitting that he lied on his financial disclosures & violated 18 USC 1001. This was already the subject of a @CREWcrew criminal complaint that led to an OGE referral to DOJ–Trump just proved our case! https://t.co/8poUAIhtQf

CONFIRMED this good AP scoop. The investigators here are from NY state's Dept. of Taxation and Finance. They're working w/ the NY AG's office on an investigation of @realDonaldTrump's Fdn. There's already a civil lawsuit filed, point here is to see if a criminal case can be made. https://t.co/f9qAJ8gFaZ

"[Michael Cohen] went in there with a set of notes written down. He said in court that they were to keep his mind focused but there was another intention there… to throw a man who had thrown him under the bus, under a bus of his own"- @emilyjanefox w/ @NicolleDWallace pic.twitter.com/smFnq3KXZa

The framers surely would agree that committing a crime in order to obtain the presidency falls in the category of “High Crimes & Misdemeanors.” This is not a prediction of what will occur, but what should follow from our constitutional system. https://t.co/8oqXlWPtcG

I have cancelled my meeting with Judge Kavanaugh. @realDonaldTrump, who is an unindicted co-conspirator in a criminal matter, does not deserve the courtesy of a meeting with his nominee—purposely selected to protect, as we say in Hawaii, his own okole.

I just want to state for the record that the response to this from the president's supporters is actually going to get worse from here, not better. https://t.co/CA6ra557Cm

Talking of which…
I take it all back. He’s a veritable master of the straight answer. Utterly unlike all those other politicians. Amazed he exposes himself to proper questions so rarely. Clearly committed to fulfilling the membership’s desire to stop Brexit. This could hardly have gone better. https://t.co/sAcXhMCvby

Labour has proposed not one viable alternative to Tory Brexit. It doesn't want a better Brexit; it wants to pin a bad Brexit on the Tories.
Damn those who will lose their jobs. And damn the austerity it will cause.
This is why you should be furious with the so-called Opposition https://t.co/zX7dEY7LiA

None of this needs to happen. We are not tied to the course we set for ourselves in 2016.
