The special counsel is probing a theory that Corsi and Trump operative Roger Stone had a WikiLeaks contact who previewed hacked emails of Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and informed Trump or his associates about the forthcoming release.

Eric Trump, executive vice president of the Trump Organization, said attorney George Conway's public criticisms of the president, another one of which came Monday morning, are a dishonor to his wife, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway.

Trump "was involved in no wrongdoing, was not part of any collusion", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Tuesday.

In his tweets Monday morning, the President once again castigated Mueller, writing, "Bob Mueller (who is a much different man than people think) and his out of control band of Angry Democrats, don't want the truth, they only want lies".

While Trump said Cohen did "TERRIBLE, unrelated to Trump, things having to do with fraud, big loans, Taxis, etc", Cohen previously pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations in which he said Trump directed him to pay off two women in order to sway the 2016 election. Asked if he expected a pardon from Trump - who has not taken a pardon for convicted former campaign manager Paul Manafort off the table - Stone replied: 'I've had no discussion regarding a pardon'.

Cohen pleaded guilty to making false statements during his testimony to Congress about Trump business dealings with Russian Federation. Still, Eric Trump felt the need to insert himself into the controversy and defend her.

Trump declared that Stone (who was kicked off Twitter in October 2017 for spewing threatening obscenities at CNN reporters) will never flip on him.

"He lied for this outcome and should, in my opinion, serve a full and complete sentence", Trump added. Trump's longtime attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying about his work toward the possible construction of a Trump Tower in Moscow. "I engaged in politics", Stone said.
