USA - Manafort found Guilty, Cohen pleads Guilty. Who's Next ?


Trump suffered a one-two punch on Tuesday afternoon. Not only was his former campaign manager Paul Manafort convicted of eight crimes stemming from his pre-Trump work as a consultant, but Trump’s former longtime lawyer and “fixer” Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight counts including tax fraud and campaign finance law violations during the Presidential Campaign.

Manafort is facing up to 240 years in prison for the 8 felony charges he was found guilty of.

Cohen's guilty plea (making illegal payments "at direction of candidate" to influence election) indicates that Trump is likely an unindicted co-conspirator. The payments were to silence porn star Stormy Daniels. The 'candidate', unnamed, was Trump.

Let's look at that Trump 'Wonder Team' shall we ?

  • National Security Advisor: GUILTY.
  • Foreign Policy Advisor: GUILTY.
  • Personal Attorney: GUILTY.
  • Deputy Campaign Chair: GUILTY.
  • Campaign Chair: GUILTY.
Unironically, back in 2015 Cohen sent this post to Hilary Clinton ...
@HillaryClinton when you go to prison for defrauding America and perjury, your room and board will be free!
Meanwhile the judge presiding over the Manafort case has received death threats and now fears for his life. The jurors don't want their names released to the public because they also fear for their safety.

So who's next ? Oh, right. Him.
