Two executives of the company that publishes the National Enquirer were granted immunity by prosecutors investigating payments arranged by U.S. President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to silence two women who said they had sex with Trump, the Wall Street Journal and Vanity Fair reported on Wednesday.
"I don't think any president has ever done what I've done in this short - we haven't even been two years", Trump said in an interview with "Fox & Friends" host Ainsley Earhardt. "You would see - you would see numbers that you wouldn't believe in reverse".
"You know, I guess it says something like "high crimes" and all".

Trump then said the hush payments were financed with his own money - to which Cohen had access - and that while he had no knowledge of them at the time, he had since been fully transparent.
Trump's former personal lawyer has information of interest to special counsel Robert Mueller handling the Russian Federation probe.
It is the party's main argument to voters ahead of elections in which Democrats are expected to regain control of one, and possibly both, houses of Congress in November.
"Having an affair and lying about it with a porn star and a Playboy bunny is not impeachable", Fleischer said, "it's Donald Trump".
The FBI raided Cohen's home, office, and hotel room in April, which led investigators to look into the lawyer's professional life and financial activity.
