Trump criticizes Cohen for cooperating with law enforcement – Trump is the top law enforcement official in the country. This sure looks like obstruction and the tweets were not a good idea.
Trump is the only guy that would try to describe a jail sentence as GREAT while simultaneously attempting to describe telling the truth about crimes committed as TERRIBLE. https://t.co/sHAqV8Wmdt

Trump’s tweets about Cohen and Stone will be used as exhibits supporting a corrupt intent to obstruct justice and/or tamper with witnesses in Mueller’s report.

I’ve never heard a public official speak this way before Trump. This sounds like something the criminals I used to prosecute would say. https://t.co/WVqoz2taVh

George is right. This is genuinely looking like witness tampering. DOJ (at least with a nonfake AG) prosecutes cases like these all the time. The fact it's done out in the open is no defense. Trump is genuinely melting down, and no good lawyer can represent him under these circs https://t.co/zqFUoQvWTf

Bravo to President Trump for calling for judges to throw the book at associates of his who commit crimes. I'm sure he will maintain this consistent position throughout his time in office. https://t.co/SWjQhb2aOJ

President Trump incorrectly claimed in a tweet that Michael Cohen's crimes were not related to him, and called for his former personal attorney to serve a "full and complete sentence." https://t.co/WuauJIdh6C

Is Donald Trump's Tweet About Roger Stone Witness Tampering? – Lawfare https://t.co/iJLBWypNZk

Highest elected official in the country appears to be trying to interfere in the sentencing of former lawyer who has implicated the president in guilty pleas. https://t.co/5RJWg07M1l

Should not be?? It’s one thing to avoid loose talk of impeachment. I’m all for that. But let’s not mince words in describing this crooked president’s witness tampering and attempts to obstruct justice. https://t.co/3BVnTRkSzi

This one’s hilarious:
President Trump publicly praises Roger Stone for having “guts!” to not testify against the president. Is that witness tampering? Experts weigh in.
