It is time to bring this inquiry to a conclusion.
My recent statements about discussions during the 2016 campaign between Michael Cohen and then-candidate Donald Trump about a potential Trump Moscow' project' were hypothetical and not based on conversations I had with The President, my comments did not represent the actual timing or circumstances of any such discussions.

We came back to President Donald Trump lawyers with a few changes, but not material changes.

Nothing would energize( Republicans) more than,' Let's save The President.'.

He's got all -- honestly -- he's got all the information that he needs.

I have n’t talked to an on-duty The FBI agent, except for background checks, in a couple of years. That information he’s talking about came from retired The FBI agents who were speculating about what was going to go on. We knew it would blow up, what I was talking about in terms of surprise was a speech we were preparing for the president to give on the Friday before the election like Ronald Reagan did, we were going to probably buy it Election Day before, go on national television and we were going to hit Hillary on all of that stuff. I was as surprised as anyone. The FBI investigated The FBI, closed The FBI and I showed them documentary evidence of what I ’m saying.
So yes, I respect all human beings, i even have to respect, you know, criminals. But I'm sorry, I don't respect a porn star the way I respect a career woman or a woman of substance or a woman who has great respect for herself as a woman and as a person and isn't going to sell her body for sexual exploitation.
If you interpret his comment about firing... Comey... If you interpret that as obstructing the investigation, as opposed to removing a guy who was doing a bad job, on the recommendation, in part, of( Deputy Attorney General Rod) Rosenstein, but you see it as obstructing the investigation, then you can say it is obstruction, and then you can say it is perjury, which is even easier for them, which is where I think, if they are sneaky, they are going.
I could not go to the President and say, take two days off to get ready for that and screw the whole thing with North Korea, he's our President.

That's why the Founding Fathers created this immunity from prosecution and subpoena.
Every campaign finance expert, Republican and Democrat, will tell you that if it was for another purpose other than just campaigns, and even if it was for campaign purposes, if it was to save his family, to save embarrassment, it's not a campaign donation, and, second, even if it was a campaign donation, the President reimbursed it fully with a payment of $ 35,000 a month that paid for that and other expenses. No need to go beyond that. Case over.
This is, you know, 1.2 million documents. I’ve been in case for two weeks -- virtually one day in comparison to other people, so I ’m not Rudy Giuliani on the facts yet. I ’m getting there. But I am an expert on the law, particularly the campaign finance law, he continued. I’ve lived under it, running for president.

I thought I was finished, but then I got involved in the Trump campaign, when you talk to the president of the United States and he wants you to do a job, I certainly would not go into that conversation with a firm 'no' in my mind.

What I am saying, is in his rhetoric, I very rarely hear him say the things I used to hear Ronald Reagan say, the things I used to hear Bill Clinton say about how much he loves America, i do hear him criticize America much more often than other American presidents. And when it’s not in the context of an overwhelming number of statements about the exceptionalism of America, it sounds like he is more of a critic than he is a supporter.
We've had four months of propaganda starting with the President, that everybody should hate the police. I don't care how you want to describe it, that's what those protests are all about, [The protests] all lead to the same conclusion that police are bad, police are racist. The people who do the most for the black community in America are the police.
