Some of us spent quite a bit of time discussing what we thought of the Trump candidacy and administration, but before the forums die I wanted to check back in with the recent revelations involving those around him.
It has come out that Michael Cohen has struck a plea deal with prosecutors. He did state he made attempts to illegally influence the election, 'at the direction of a candidate for federal office." Who do you believe he is referring to, and do you believe he is telling the truth?
The Jury also recently came back with a verdict in the Paul Manafort trial, in which they found him guilty on 8 counts of special counsel Mueller's indictment and could not come to a consensus on the other 10 charges. These convictions come with a maximum sentence of 80 years in prison. Manafort is 69 years of age and is expected to spend the rest of his life incarcerated, but one thing people seem to be forgetting is that the special counsel has more charges to be brought against Manafort such as obstruction of justice.
What is your take on this verdict, and do you believe Trump that what 'they' did to Manafort was 'sad' and that he is 'a good man'?
