Michael Cohen the president’s go-to man back in his imagined glory days has decided to make a deal with prosecutors in order to minimize how much time he will spend in prison. Cohen pleaded guilty to eight charges related to payments to women involved with the president in the past. He is the first domino related to the game of Trump, at the same time Paul Manafort has pleaded guilty to eight felonies. Bank fraud, tax evasion and payments to women whom the president wanted to keep silent about his extramarital affairs. This is not a good day for the leader of the free world. The involvement with the Russians by his son and confidants looks like that will be the next falling domino.
The Stormy Daniels story started this news cycle that might eventually see the president leaving office because of integrity issues related to his marriage, greed, and let’s not forget his ongoing verbal rants about the “lying media”. That media will do everything in its power to bring down Trump. That is a given although he still has his base of support to count on during the upcoming mid-term election. As more damaging news comes out in the future I can only hope that there are no serious world events that would cause Americans no matter how they feel about him “to stand behind the president” as in a time of war.
