A number of Republicans on Capitol Hill carefully treat the wake of Michael Coh’s allegations that President Trump made it possible for him to arrange quick payments with two women, because Cohen, when Trump candidate “was very concerned about how this would affect the election” about their claims of business became public.

The allegations of Trump’s motives were matched by an exclusive interview with ABC News, the president’s former personal attorney and fixer, on Cohen’s heels to be sentenced to three years in prison for various crimes, including campaign funding, tax avoidance and conviction to Congress.

Federal prosecutor alleged that Cohen violated campaign funding laws by paying two women claiming that they had had business with Trump that worked “in coordination with and towards” the then candidate.

Trump has claimed that the payment amount is no more than a “single private transaction” and does not qualify as campaign funding violations.

“” Democrats can not find a Smocking Gun that strikes the Trump campaign to Russia after James Comey’s testimony. No Smocking Gun … No Collusion. “@FoxNews It was because there was no merger. So now, Dems goes to a simple private transaction, incorrectly calling it a campaign contribution,” Trump Tweeted 1

The republican response has been reserved.

“I do not think any of us can predict the future,” says GOP Sen. John Kennedy from Louisiana to Thursday.

“And I really can not read these tea leaves. The American lawyer and Mr. Mueller … they have evidence that I’m not aware, so I do not want to condemn it,” Kennedy said.

President’s Allied Allies in the Senate – and the next Senate Court Committee chairman – Lindsey Graham was condemned when He was asked if Coh’s misdeeds could mean the president.

“I mean, all I can say is what I watch on TV,” Graham said.

In the case of Cohen, Graham said last week: “He is guilty of some business offenses and they claim a campaign-violation and … I think it would be a difficult case for someone to prove, but we will see where it goes. “

Another Highest Allied Sender Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, began primarily the debt of the Democrats.

Ask if he had any problems with Trump involved in, Hatch told CNN on Wednesday: “Democrats will do anything to hurt this president.”

When informed, it was alleged by federal prosecutors in New York, Hatch said: “OK, but I do not care, all I can say is he is doing a good job as president.”

But on Friday, Hatch’s office released a long statement for what he called his “irresponsible” comments.

“I do not think the president broke the law, but one of the core principles in our country is that no one is above the law. That means that anyone who violates the law should meet the appropriate consequences,” said Hatch.

At ABC News last count, only another GOP senator – Marco Rubio – has gone so far as saying that no one , including the president, is above the law.

“If someone has violated the law, the application of the law should apply to those who would be for any other citizen of this country and of course if you are in a large government presidency, that would be the case,” Rubio said Sunday on CNN when asked about Trump’s possible participation in violation of campaign funding laws.

Rubio said that his decision on how Congress would respond to federal investigators’ final results on payments “will not be a political decision, it will be the fact that we are a nation of laws and no one in this country no matter who you is over it. “

At the same time, Democrats say that Trump should be worried.

Connecticut Democratic Senate Chris Murphy compared the current situation with the special council investigation that eventually led to the resignation of former President Richard Nixon in 1974.

“The president has now entered the same territory that ultimately led President Nixon to leave the office. President Nixon was an undisputed consensus. Was really another set of facts, but this investigation is now starting to put the president in serious legal crosshairs and he should be worried and the whole country should be worried, says Murphy at ABC’s “This Week”.

Trump has not been mentioned as an indefinite coincidence in the Cohen case.
