The tweets cap a hard week for Trump in which his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, said the president directed him to arrange hush money payments to two women before the election.

A co-operation deal between Mr. Weisselberg and prosecutors could be damaging to Mr. Trump given the executive's long-time role in Mr. Trump's business affairs.

Longtime Clinton attorney Lanny Davis, now representing former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, said Cohen has never been to Prague, as claimed in the "dossier" of unverified political dirt on Trump funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Cohen has stayed out of sight and has remained emotional since his plea, according to the people close to him.

That's a critical assertion because it makes the payments subject to campaign finance laws, which restrict how much people can donate to a campaign and bar corporations from making direct contributions.

But Axios reported Thursday that Cohen, in closed-door hearings with Congress past year, said he was unsure if Trump knew about the meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya.

These revelations of guilt come on top of those of others who spent time in Trump's orbit, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who admitted in a December plea deal that he lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contact with Russian officials.

The Trump Organization has not commented on the reports, which first emerged in the Wall Street Journal. Another person with knowledge of Trump's thinking said the president continues to direct much of his ire at Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who infuriated him by recusing himself from the Russian Federation probe.

"If anyone is looking for a good lawyer, I would strongly suggest that you don't retain the services of Michael Cohen!". Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said in May this was part of "a long-standing agreement that Michael Cohen takes care of situations like this, then gets paid for them sometimes".

Trump has repeatedly denied there was collusion and has labelled the Mueller probe a "witch hunt".

Cohen had pleaded guilty to tax and campaign finance violations on Tuesday.
