QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“If anyone is looking for a good lawyer, I would strongly suggest that you don’t retain the services of Michael Cohen!”
President Donald Trump following the news about Cohen’s guilty plea

“I can tell you, as the president has stated on numerous occasions, he did nothing wrong. There are no charges against him in this. And just because Michael Cohen made a plea deal doesn’t mean that that implicates the president on anything.”
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders

“People who do bad things, who break the law, need to be held accountable, but this doesn’t add anything to the allegations of misconduct relative to the Russia investigation. How does this implicate the president? I don’t think it implicates him at all, especially on the Russia investigation.”
Republican Sen. John Cornyn of Texas

“Michael Cohen’s guilty plea appears to implicate the president in a knowing violation of campaign finance laws, with the payment of hush money to advance the Trump campaign. This is the first guilty plea directly alleging potential criminal activity by the President.”
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Los Angeles

“I’ll tell you what, if I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash.”
President Trump
