Trump says market would 'crash' if he were impeached

Andrew Johnson escaped being removed from office by one vote

Raising the specter of removal from office, President Donald Trump says that impeachment would wreck the stock market and the economy because he is doing such a good job.

"If I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash", he said.

Without his kind of "thinking", Trump said as he pointed to his head, "you would see numbers that you wouldn't believe in reverse".

Trump's mere mention of impeachment, however, shows how deep his political troubles have become, with this week's events putting his presidency's future in serious doubt.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is continuing to investigate possible coordination between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 election and whether Trump has tried to obstruct that probe.

"I know that when [Cohen] retained me, as recently as yesterday, he's committed to telling the truth, and we've actually set up a website with the name "truth" in it, called michaelcohentruth.com", Davis said.

It appears as if President Trump has perhaps switched his narrative from "no collusion" to 'don't impeach me, ' at least if you go by a statement he made this morning on Fox News regarding the prospects of impeachment.

"In fact, I watched a number of [TV] shows".

The president's story about Cohen's payments has changed multiple times over the past year, and in the Fox interview he tried several ways of defusing the allegations.

Cohen, who says he won't seek a pardon from Trump, pleaded guilty Tuesday to eight charges, including campaign finance violations that he said he carried out in coordination with Trump. McDougal, who has said she had a months-long affair with Trump, sold her story for $150,000 to AMI but it was never published, a practice known as "catch and kill" to prevent a potentially damaging article from being published.

That tool "almost ought to be outlawed".

Both cases resulted, at least in part, from the work of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russia's attempts to sway voters in the 2016 election.

U.S. President Donald Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, leaves the Daniel Patrick Moynihan United States Court House past news media in lower Manhattan, New York City, U.S. August 21, 2018.

Control of Congress has now become a crucial issue because the House of Representatives would need to vote to impeach a sitting president.

The Trump campaign denies its involvement and claims that anyone could have purchased the website at the time for as little as $7.
