The man he wants to see in jail is Michael Cohen, who is cooperating with Robert Mueller's investigation after taking a plea deal.

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.

Last week Michael Cohen, the president's former longtime personal attorney, confessed to lying to Congress about Trump's business dealings with Russian Federation as part of a plea agreement with Mueller.

The URL was purchased and then used to send a single message about how they felt about the president, reading: "Donald J. Trump is a traitor to our country". "Nice to know that some people still have 'guts!'", the president tweeted.

Cohen, once one of the president's closest allies and a top executive at The Trump Organization, last week admitted lying in testimony about contacts with powerful Moscow figures over building a Trump Tower in Moscow.

Cohen's lawyers said he had fully cooperated with Mueller's investigation and would continue to do so, and deserved to avoid imprisonment.

Trump wrote that Cohen did "terrible" things that were "unrelated to Trump" and said that he believes Cohen should "serve a full and complete sentence". In court in August, he told a judge that he violated campaign-finance laws at the president's direction and, on Thursday, said he lied to Congress to remain consistent with Trump's messaging on the campaign trail.

President Trump's son Eric Trump on Monday accused George Conway of showing "utter disrespect" towards White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, his wife.
