Tough day for the MAGA crowd.
Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort faces up to 80 years in prison after being convicted of money laundering and fraud
Longtime Trump personal lawyer Michael Cohen pleads guilty to campaign finance violations, tax evasion and fraud
, "in coordination with, and at the direction of" Trump himself. He also faces years in prison.
Cohen's lawyer wrote:[Cohen] testified under oath that Donald Trump directed him to commit a crime by making payments to two women for the principal purpose of influencing an election.
The "disgraceful witch hunt" is racking up quite the body-count: 5 guilty pleas, 32 individuals indicted, and 187 charges, now implicating the President in criminal activity.
It’s been called a “witch hunt” because Manafort’s association with Trump is the only reason he’s under the microscope.
If Manafort had not briefly worked on Trump’s campaign (5 months) they wouldn’t have come after him.
Hopefully you are aware that the charges against Manafort have nothing to do with Trump or his campaign.
Manafort’s alleged wrongdoing occurred around a decade earlier than the 5 months he spent on Trump’s campaign.
And of course no one can blame the Trump campaign for not knowing about Mr Manafort’s alleged past misdeeds.
(after all the FBI, IRS, CIA, liberal media, etc didn’t know)
Like I say, the Get Trump folks have put every Trump associate under the microscope… and found some pre-Trump alleged crimes.
And THAT my friend is why it’s been labelled a “witch hunt” by some…
As far as statements by Cohen, well allegedly he just pleaded guilty to “making false statements” so…
(it's in your link)
Earlier Cohen said Trump did not do anything wrong, now he says he was lying when he said that.
Or is he lying now, I’m confused.
This guy is on the hot seat, it’s human nature for a person in that position to say “But but but that guy over there…”
There are a whole lot of personal charges being thrown around in regards to Cohen
... but the one that could be construed as throwing some dirt on Trump is the reason he's part of "the witch hunt".
Anyway, who's to say that alleged payments to women were “for the principal purpose of influencing an election”??
IF alleged payments were made at the direction of Trump, who’s to say it wasn’t for “the principal purpose” of his wife not finding out?
Doesn't matter, candidates often do these Non-Disclosure Agreements, perfectly legal as long as it’s paid for with personal funds.
“The President is now implicated in criminal activity”
Your liberal media masters are taking you on yet another wild goose chase, making a monkey out of you yet again…
