President Donald Trump passed Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford, left, and National Security Adviser Michael Flynn as he arrives via Air Force One at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, Feb. 6, 2017.
As for Mr. Trump, Mr. Cohen's serenade will fatten the incriminating evidence being meticulously assembled by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian elections meddling, as well as Mr. Trump's various personal and campaign activities of questionable legality.
Flynn pleaded guilty to "willfully and knowingly" make "fictitious and fraudulent statements" to the Federal Bureau of Investigation to cover-up meeting with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
"In fact, Giuliani brought up a Yiddish word, "bubkes.' He said, 'they don't have bubkes.' He says that if Flynn had information to share with Robert Mueller that would hurt the president, he would know it by now because Giuliani argues what he calls 'publicity hungry angry Democrats" - that's how he characterized the special counsel - would have revealed it, not redacted it, essentially".
Trump cited Stone's pledge to never testify against him.
Flynn who served for 24 days as Trump's national security adviser, was sacked over his failure to disclose his conversations with Kislyak to Vice President Mike Pence.
Trump has repeatedly lamented how Flynn's life has been destroyed by the special counsel's probe.
Mr Flynn also admitted that later that same December, he asked Mr Kislyak not to retaliate in response to the Obama administration sanctions, something he initially told Federal Bureau of Investigation agents he did not do.
That episode, which Trump has denied, is among those under scrutiny by Mueller as he looks into whether the president tried to obstruct the Russian Federation investigation.

Under federal sentencing guidelines, Flynn faces a maximum sentence of 6 months in prison, prosecutors said.
He went on start a consultancy and write a book, which was highly critical of Obama, and he undertook speaking engagements and other appearances. He is due to be sentenced on December 12 after pleading guilty to charges brought by prosecutors in NY including tax evasion, bank fraud and campaign finance violations.
Investigators have dug into virtually everything, including the way Cohen ran his taxi business, how he bought the silence of two women claiming affairs with Trump and whether he had information about possible contact between Trump's campaign and Russian operatives during the 2016 election. He has instead spent considerable time with his family and worked to position himself for a post-conviction career.
And Mueller's Russiagate probe moves along with week, with sentencing memos expected for Manafort as well as Michael Flynn (former national security advisor in the Trump Administration).
Lawyers for Cohen asked the judge in a court filing on Friday not to sentence him to prison.
It has been reported that Mueller's team are trying to determine whether Flynn met with Turkish officials in December 2016 to discuss a potential deal under which he would be paid to oversee Gulen's return to Turkey.
The false statements came in an interview with agents on 24 January 2017, as the Obama administration was levying sanctions on the Kremlin in response to election interference. Kislyak calls Flynn. The next day, Flynn consults another high-ranking Trump transition team official and returns Kislyak's call, asking Russian Federation not to retaliate.
Within weeks, Flynn was forced to resign after it was alleged that he lied to top White House officials as well about his Kislyak talks. Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec did not dispute that but said that nothing had changed since the DOJ released a statement saying that Whitaker is in charge of all Justice Department matters.
