"You don't necessarily launch an impeachment against a president because he committed an impeachable offense", Nadler said, muddying the waters a bit on whether he would start impeachment proceedings or not.

But, Nadler hedged slightly on impeachment, saying that just because a president commits an impeachable offense, it doesn't always justify impeachment. This isn't good for democracy but this investigation may ultimately lead to Congress taking action, ' he added.

Clinton was impeached by the House in 1998 but acquitted by the Senate; Nixon resigned in 1974 as impeachment loomed. Schiff also said Cohen has recently been cooperating with the investigation.

And he told Mueller to get something to Congress in early 2019. "I think it's probably mostly speculation on the part of those of us who are not privy to all the details that the Mueller investigation are looking at".

This question was last addressed by the Office of Legal Counsel during the Bill Clinton administration.

"I personally think that if someone makes an error in filing paperwork or not categorizing, it shouldn't be jail time, it ought to be a fine", Paul said.

The 40-page sentencing memo filed by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY for former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen is the basis for an indictment against the president, according to Andrew McCarthy. We need that as soon as possible'.

But there's no ambiguity in Friday's filing that prosecutors believe Cohen's act was criminal and Trump was directly involved, a remarkable disclosure with potential political and legal ramifications for a president dogged by investigations.

Cohen worked "in coordination with and at the direction of" Donald Trump - by his own admission - to arrange for the National Enquirer to buy the rights to the two women's stories and "kill" them, preventing media exposure of their claims, one of the sentencing memos claims. Moreover, at this point, Trump can not discount the possibility that even more crimes will be revealed in the course of the SDNY's work or that of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump's lawyers have said that special counsel Robert Mueller plans to adhere to that guidance, though Mueller's office has never independently confirmed that.

And as a result, 'neither woman spoke to the press prior to the election'.

Trump has denied the affairs and has not been accused of any crimes related to the payments. That, I think, is why, reportedly, they are spinning the alleged campaign finance violation as Trump "defrauding" voters.

Hasen said Trump's lawyers could argue Trump didn't have willfulness to break the law if the payments were completely personal and not connected to the campaign, despite their timing. Whether a president can be prosecuted while in office remains a matter of legal dispute. NY prosecutors also alleged that Cohen, at Trump's direction, orchestrated hush money payments to Trump's former mistresses to prevent them from telling their stories in the media ahead of the election.

"Individual-1" refers to Trump. Changing that view now would validate all of Trump's claims of being persecuted by the federal bureaucracy.
