The president's legal quandary in NY continues to deepen after federal prosecutors there granted immunity last week to Allen Weisselberg, chief financial officer for the Trump Organisation, and David Pecker, a longtime Trump ally who is the executive of the National Enquirer magazine's parent company.
Asked if he would fire Mueller if that were to happen, Trump responded: "I can't, I can't answer that question because I don't think it's going to happen". Similarly, Trump flipped from fury that Cohen's offices were raided to claiming that he and Cohen were never all that close. Though Cohen has already been charged with tax crimes on the federal level, the state attorney general's office can bring its own set of charges because NY state's double jeopardy laws don't apply to tax crimes.
President Donald Trump on Saturday renewed his yearslong attack on Hillary Clinton, threatening in a series of tweets to "get involved" if federal law enforcement did not stop investigating him while "real corruption goes untouched". But it is unclear whether the man they worked for, the president, will face any formal scrutiny or consequences.

In the announcement late Thursday night, the company claimed it would "shortly" be sending texts to customers who were affected. The malicious party did not get access to any financial data, social security numbers, or passwords.
Sources confirmed to Fox News that prosecutors struck the immunity deal with Pecker, CEO of American Media, Inc., which publishes the National Enquirer.
"You have this Cohen guy, he doesn't know anything about Russian collusion, he doesn't know anything about obstruction, he's a massive liar", Giuliani said, reiterating his clients' earlier statements when Trump accused Cohen of "making up stories" to get a plea bargain deal.
The Manafort charges stem nearly completely from his personal businesses but they came to light after he went to work for Trump. Davis began striking back at the White House and lobbed a clear warning shot at the president when he released a secret recording of a conversation in which Trump appears to have knowledge about hush-money payments to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who also alleged an affair with the developer.
The public spat between Sessions and the president came two days after Trump's former election campaign manager Paul Manafort was convicted on tax and bank fraud charges, and Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight criminal charges. Cohen has indicated he may cooperate with that inquiry.
Before the latest development, 46 percent of American voters approved of Trump's job performance.
Allen Weisselberg, 71, provided information to federal prosecutors in the case against Michael Cohen, Mr Trump's lawyer. Meantime, Cohen also committed bank and tax fraud relating to his NY taxi and other businesses.
"Big story out that the Federal Bureau of Investigation ignored tens of thousands of Crooked Hillary Emails, many of which are REALLY BAD", Trump tweeted.
