Cohen pleaded for leniency from a judge on Friday, saying he should be spared a prison term because he's informing on the president and his company to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Stone pledged his loyalty to the president during an interview with ABC's This Week on Sunday, stating that there would be "no circumstance" in which he would testify against Trump.

'I'd have to make things up, and I'm not going to do that, ' Stone added.

Mr. Trump had cheered on former campaign adviser Roger Stone for resisting to work with the special counsel's team. Earlier, he fired at his former personal attorney Michael Cohen for taking a plea deal in the case.

Those contacts, including with a top aide to President Vladimir Putin, continued throughout the first half of 2016, even after Trump secured the Republican nomination for president, Cohen admitted.

A strong aftershock, measuring magnitude-5.7 shook the earth soon after and a tsunami warning was briefly issued for some areas. Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz says the city is on the road to returning to normal a day after a magnitude 7.0 quake struck.

"'Michael Cohen asks judge for no Prison Time.' You mean he can do all of the awful, unrelated to Trump, things having to do with fraud, big loans, Taxis, etc., and not serve a long prison term?"

This comes after President Donald Trump's former lawyer pleaded guilty to lying to Congress, raising questions about whether the special counsel would pursue similar charges against others implicated in the Russian Federation probe.

'Nice to know that some people still have 'guts!' the president concluded.

President Donald Trump's son Eric Trump accused conservative lawyer George Conway, husband to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, of showing "utter disrespect" to her work with his frequent criticism of the President. It referenced sections of the federal criminal code dealing with witness tampering, among other things, reports CNBC. "I've had no discussion regarding a pardon", Stone said.

Trump cited Stone's pledge to never testify against him. The truth is very bad for their mission!' the president wrote.
