President Trump is using his last days in office to pardon several of his closest allies. But his former personal attorney Michael Cohen, who pled guilty to financial charges and lying to Congress, was not on that list. Cohen joined CBSN to discuss what he thinks of the president's actions as well as his insights into potential legal issues Mr. Trump could face over his financial dealings. Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's former personal attorney and author of ‘Disloyal,' joins Ali Velshi to discuss the Trump administration's final days and what Trump could do next. Says Cohen, "he's going to continue to blow the dog whistle, he's going to continue to speak in code, he's going to continue to rile up his 26-27% base of this country that he has that's willing to do crazy things, including storm the Capitol." #EU chief Brexit negotiator Michel #Barnier on Monday signalled "some progress" in talks on a post-#Brexit trade deal, EU diplomats said, but differences remain on key sticking points.

And their conclusion could be used as a legal basis for prosecution.
They have already recommended setting up a court.
