Legal problems grow for the president

Local News

President Donald Trump’s legal problems could be growing; prosecutors implicating that the president was involved in two crimes linked to the 2016 campaign. 

As the full implications of the case against the president’s longtime attorney begin to sink in, democrats say the president, himself, is in legal jeopardy.  The sentencing memo prosecutors filed Friday in Federal Court in New York suggests Michael Cohen should be sent to jail because of crimes he committed “in coordination with and at the direction of” Trump, himself.  

The president denies any wrong doing, but the incoming Chair of the House Judiciary Committee told CNN’s Jake Tapper if prosecutors can prove otherwise, it would be an impeachable offense.
