Dark day for Donald Trump. In the White House bad news


To the former head of the campaign headquarters Paul Manafort have rendered a damning verdict, he is threatened by long prison term. Besides, the former lawyer of Trump Michael Coen admitted commission of crimes at the request of the client the U.S. President Donald Trump. Photo: Oliver Contreras/Zuma/TASS at the U.S. President Donald Trump wasn't set the Last Tuesday: two sharply negative events have fallen upon the White House at once. First, the former head of an election campaign of Trump and the former political strategist of Victor Yanukovych Paul Manafort have been found guilty on 8 of 18 counts. His maximum imprisonment term can reach 80 years. Business concerns financial crimes, but not expected conspiracy with Russia, however all the same is more than painful for Trump. Secondly, the former lawyer of the president Michael Coen has pled guilty to violation of the law about financing of political campaigns, having called Trump the accomplice. In particular, according to him, during the election campaign he paid mistresses of future president for silence "in coordination and according to instructions of the candidate". News to Fox News was commented by professor of the George Washington University Johnathan Terli:dzhonatan Turley professor of the George Washington University "These are bad news.

Remarks of the defender were heard on air of MSNBC:LANNI Davies Michael Coen's lawyer "Mr. Coen has certain information which will be rather interesting to the special prosecutor, he will be glad to her to share.
