Note: my primary focus here on da-bulldog-blog is outdoor fun, nature photography and all but I still get into the political stuff with big stories. And this is certainly one!
By now you’ve quite likely heard that former tRump campaign manager Paul Manafort was convicted on eight of the 18 original counts he was facing. The jury was deadlocked on the other counts, we’ll see how that part of the story unfolds later.
Meanwhile, tRump’s long-time personal attorney and fixer Michael Cohen plead guilty to eight charges in a Federal Court in Manhattan today and said very plainly that he made the two illegal payouts–one to Stormy Daniels and one to Karen McDougal–because tRump directed him to. And that he did it in order to influence the 2016 Presidential Election.
Cohen is scheduled to be sentenced on December 12th.
Donald is toast. The dam is most definitely breaking!
Because his delusional supporters are dug in so deeply, it will take more than today’s proceedings to dislodge him from the office he stole back on 11/9 but we can all see the handwriting on the wall now.
Not only does he have cult-like thrall over his Kool Aid chugging followers, but the Federal Government is run by his sycophants, enablers and co-conspirators, so we’re not going to see the curtain go down quite yet.
But we can all see now that it’s just a matter of time.
Breathin’ just a bit easier on this Twofer Tuesday, I am,
