Trump Overload. Michael Cohen Flips. Manafort Guilty on Eight Counts.
Bad day for Donald Trump. Earlier in the day it was announced that Trump's supposed lawyer and personal fixer, Michael Cohen, has cut a plea deal with the US attorney for the Southern New York District. He appeared in court today to enter guilty pleas.
And Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, has been found guilty on eight of the eighteen felony counts at trial. The jury was deadlocked on the remaining charges - i.e. he wasn't found "not guilty" on anything.
