"He's unmoored, is the only way to describe it", said Nancy Gertner, a retired federal judge who now teaches at Harvard Law School.

Instead, Mr Trump veered immediately toward the witch hunt, the fix, the "phony cloud" that he says is hanging over his presidency in the form of the ongoing investigation into possible ties between his campaign and Russian Federation.

"I am very disappointed in my Justice Department". They would have you out of business, and they'd have me, you better get out of this campaign with a - they don't even bring it up!

"She was an outstanding judge, and it's not hard to see why Judge Wood chose to pick her for this very important position", said Sandick, who prosecuted several cases over which Jones presided. "One person briefed on the discussions described the session as relaxed and an opportunity for both sides to "feel each other out.' Still, Trump remains 'extremely opposed" to granting Mueller an interview, according to one close adviser - setting up a potential high-stakes legal battle between the White House and the special counsel, who could ultimately seek to try to subpoena the president".

"Doc Ronny - you know, we call him Doc Ronny, we call him Admiral Ronny. That was incredible to listen to".

President Donald Trump acknowledged Thursday for the first time that his longtime lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen represented him in efforts to silence Stormy Daniels, the adult film actress who has alleged a sexual encounter with Trump more than a decade ago.

Prosecutors with the Southern District of NY are already using those words against him, arguing that Trump's claim about Cohen means that it's unlikely that numerous lawyer's documents are privileged.

"He represents me - like with this insane Stormy Daniels deal he represented me. There were no campaign funds going into this".

Cohen's NY home and office were raided by the FBI this month as part of an unspecified criminal investigation and Trump sought in the "Fox and Friends" interview to distance himself from his longtime personal attorney.

Daniels's lawyer Michael Avenatti called the admission a "gift from the heavens".

"This doesn't have to do with me", Trump said.

"His lawyers probably told him to do that", Trump said. Because I don't think people in Montana - the, the admiral is the kind of person that they respect and admire.

CBS News' Jeff Pegues points out however, that the case does have "something to do with him" because his attorneys and Trump Organization attorneys are involved with trying to sort out what evidence seized in the Cohen raids are covered by attorney-client privilege.

Daniels's lawyer concluded, "We now find out that that's bogus". "As I predicted, that has now been shown to be completely false", Avenatti tweeted.

In a letter to the court filed less than three hours after Trump appeared on "Fox and Friends", prosecutors argued those comments prove that relatively few documents seized during a search of Cohen's home, office and hotel room earlier this month are likely to be confidential communications between Cohen and his client, Trump.

Barbara Jones, a former federal judge in the Southern District of NY who has overseen cases ranging from organized crime to corporate compliance, will decide which of the documents should be handed over to prosecutors.
