Trump accused of witness tampering over Roger Stone tweet

He also repeated his accusation that Special Counsel Robert Mueller - who is investigating possible collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's campaign - is forcing witnesses to make up lies damaging to the president.

President Trump called Monday for his former attorney Michael Cohen to serve a "full and complete" sentence, weighing in on the fate of a onetime loyalist who is arguing that he does not deserve prison time for the criminal charges to which he has pleaded guilty. The man he wants to see in jail is Michael Cohen, who is cooperating with Robert Mueller's investigation after taking a plea deal.

Putting the attack on Cohen aside, a lot of people were confused about Trump's decision to capitalize and misspell "Scott Free" in his tweet.

"You mean he can do all of the awful, unrelated to Trump, things having to do with fraud, big loans, Taxis, etc., and not serve a long prison term?" the president said on Twitter.

Russian Federation charged that the three Ukrainian navy ships sailed into its territorial waters in the Kerch Strait Nov. 27. Merkel also brought up the escalating conflict with President Trump during a private meeting the two had in Buenos Aires.

"He lied for this outcome and should, in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence", the president wrote.

In a series of tweets, Trump said Monday morning that Roger Stone, a Republican political operative and longtime Trump ally, has "guts" for saying that he won't testify against the President.

"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". CNN's Manu Raju observed that Trump is offering a "big signal here" that he could pardon Stone and is "encouraging him not to cooperate".

"File under '18 U.S.C. §§ 1503, 1512, '" he said. This is genuinely looking like witness tampering.
