Trump lands in West Virginia and defends Manafort ... but not Cohen

Donald Trump has ignored good advice and flown into West Virginia for an evening rally. Reports coming out of the White House indicate that Team Trump did not get the day they were expecting. Trump had been assured that former campaign manager Paul Manafort’s trial was going to end with either a mistrial or an acquittal, either of which Trump intended to use to attack special counsel Robert Mueller. Trump surrogates were on high alert to go on the attack as Manafort celebrated. Except … Manafort was found guilty on eight counts. And to everyone’s surprise, that turned out to be only the second-biggest piece of news to emerge from a federal court house on Tuesday as Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen marched in to turn himself over to the FBI, plead guilty to eight charges including campaign finance violations, and in the process name Trump as an unindicted co-conspirator.  All of which put something of a damper on Trump’s press statements. Trump pointedly ignored reporters’ shouted questions on his way out of D.C., and appeared ready to feign a sudden loss of hearing on his arrival in Charleston. But at the last moment, Trump did respond to a question about Manafort’s conviction. Trump’s tune on Manafort had barely changed a note: It was sad. Manafort “worked for Ronald Reagan,” Manafort is a “good man.” Manfort’s conviction had “nothing to do with Russian collusion.” And of course, Mueller’s investigation continues to be “a witch hunt.” In fact, Trump seemed singularly subdued. Almost as if, for once, he was really sad. About the only person made un-sad by Trump’s statements had to be Manafort, because it wasn’t hard to hear the sound of Trump’s scrawling his signa-scribble on a pardon. When it came to Michael Cohen, Trump said … nothing at all. But he’ll get another chance when he takes the stage tonight. For once, this might be a Trump rally worth covering.

Manafort, Guilty. Cohen, Guilty. And Trump, Guilty.

Manafort, Guilty. Cohen, Guilty. And Trump, Guilty.

All those tweets, posts, and predictions that started with tick-tick-tick … today they went boom. In an amazing period of just a few minutes on Tuesday afternoon the jury in the trial of Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort returned a verdict of guilty on eight counts, and two minutes later Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight counts. Barring a pardon from Trump, today’s findings against both Manafort and Cohen are enough to earn the two men years behind bars.  But while the day was a vindication for the investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller, it was an even bigger black mark against Donald Trump than anyone was expecting. While there was nothing in Michael Cohen’s plea before a federal judge to indicate that he had reached any cooperating agreement, his actual statements were more damning for Trump than anyone imagined coming into this day. Before the judge, under oath, Cohen stated that he made payments “In coordination with and at the direction of a candidate for federal office” in knowing violation of campaign finance law. Cohen’s statement was as direct an indictment of Donald Trump as any statement made against Nixon during Watergate. Trump is now officially an unindicted co-conspirator to the crime committed by Cohen. More than that, this is a conspiracy that happened at the direction of Trump. Donald Trump is guilty, says Michael Cohen under oath. And in two hours, Trump will take the stage at yet another rally to scream “fake news” and “witch hunt” and (because it’s in West Virginia) “clean coal.” This is an extraordinary day in American history … and it’s not over. Though if Donald Trump wanted to just aim Air Force One at Moscow and keep going, I think we could all agree to let him keep the plane.

Manafort found guilty on eight counts, mistrial on 10 counts

After over four days of deliberation, the jury in Paul Manafort’s Virginia trial returned saying that they had a verdict on 8 of the 18 counts against Donald Trump’s campaign chairman. However, they have submitted a note to the court saying that they cannot come to a unanimous verdict on ten of the counts.  Judge T. S. Ellis had previously indicated, outside the hearing of the jury, that he might accept a partial verdict. However, the earlier note from the jury, which asked “what happens if we can’t come to a consensus on a single count” suggested that the jury was stuck on only a single count. It’s unclear that the judge will accept this much less complete verdict. A jury hung on ten counts would make for a much greater chance the government could attempt to retry Manafort on those charges, and also makes it much more likely that Ellis will order the jury to resume deliberations for at least another day. Judge Ellis has announced that he plans to “poll the jury.” That is, to talk to them one on one, to determine how the jury is currently split. Ellis will inform attorneys after that poll what action will come next. The outcome of Paul Manafort’s trial in Virginia was handed over to the jury on Thursday morning following final instructions from Judge T. S. Ellis. Despite earlier conferences between the attorneys and Judge Ellis, and concerns over statements made by Ellis that were seen as potentially influencing jury opinions, both sides wrapped up their case on Wednesday afternoon and the jury went into chambers on Thursday morning. The jury sent several questions to Ellis on Thursday, asking for both a clear definition of “reasonable doubt” and to resolve issues around ownership of foreign accounts. On Tuesday morning, the jury asked Ellis what they should do if they were unable to reach agreement on a single count. Ellis returned them to the jury room to continue deliberations. Tuesday, Aug 21, 2018 · 8:36:47 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner Judge Ellis has determined that he will declare a mistrial on 10 counts. Verdict will now be read on other 8 counts.

Trump fixer Michael Cohen to plead guilty to financial fraud and campaign finance violations

Longtime Trump lawyer/fixer Michael Cohen reached a plea agreement Tuesday with federal prosecutors on bank and tax fraud charges and campaign finance violations. Cohen surrendered to the FBI and is due in federal court for a hearing at 4 PM ET. The charges in the Southern District of New York relate to Cohen not paying enough taxes on his taxi medallions and inflating his assets on bank loan applications. The campaign finance charge stems from hush-money payments Cohen made to women for Donald Trump in advance of the 2016 election.  Before seeing the plea deal, the lawyer for one of those women, Michael Avenatti, told MSNBC that even if the charging documents do not include specifics about Cohen cooperating, he could still cooperate. «Regardless of whether the documentation today formally includes a cooperation agreement, that does not mean that there's not cooperation that's ongoing,» Avenatti explained, «nor does it mean that there will not be significant cooperation going forward.» Avenatti said he had «zero doubt» that Cohen was cooperating on some level, a position that former Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tom Dupree agreed with completely on MSNBC. «I find it very doubtful, almost zero percent, that the United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York would have entered this plea bargain with Cohen absent meaningful cooperation across the board,» Dupree asserted, also in advance of seeing the actual documentation. If Cohen does cooperate, that cooperation can extend beyond the SDNY investigation to include assisting special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing Russia probe. One main point of interest for Mueller's team will be whether Cohen can confirm Trump knew in advance about Don Jr.'s Trump Tower meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. Cohen has indicated that Trump did know. Cohen also likely has information pertaining to whether Trump knowingly and intentionally violated campaign finance laws related to the hush-money payments Cohen made to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, with whom Trump allegedly had affairs. In July, Cohen released a recording of him and Trump discussing a payment to McDougal in advance of the 2016 election. Stay tuned for further updates.  Tuesday, Aug 21, 2018 · 8:12:39 PM +00:00 · Kerry Eleveld UPDATE: On MSNBC, Barbara McQuade said federal prosecutors may not have been ready to specify the terms of a bargain with Cohen because review of the materials seized by investigators in the raid was just finalized today.

Midday open thread: Native women 10x more likely to be murdered; Viagra goes generic

76 days remain until the November midterms Have you volunteered for the campaign of a candidate or ballot issue yet? Today’s comic by Jen Sorensen is Wheel of Dystopia: • Special counsel Mueller’s team so close-mouthed they won’t even disclose their lunch orders: Mr. Mueller’s spokesman, Peter Carr, whose “no comment” replies have become a running dark joke among the Washington press corps, sat among the spectators and reporters. He would not even confirm Mr. Andres’s order from Shake Shack, deferring to reportorial observation. Nor would Mr. Andres himself. Asked later whether he had in fact ordered Shake Shack, he laughed, then paused. “I can’t say,” he said, his usual response when journalists at the hotel asked him about his work as he strolled the lobby juggling half-eaten bags of Lay’s potato chips, Starbucks beverages and Diet Coke, his hair tousled and tie loosened.  • Nice work if you can get it, even if you quit: If CBS CEO Les Moonves decides to leave the company because of the multiple sexual harassment allegations again him, the network would owe him $174 million.  MIDDAY TWEET xJust a thought: maybe it has something to do with decades of right-wing attacks on «elites», meaning people who think they know more about a subject than you do just because they've spent their lives studying it. https://t.co/BBkkGIjBUK— Paul Krugman (@paulkrugman) August 21, 2018 • Native women are 10 times more likely to be murdered than the average for all races: Native American women across the country are being murdered and sexually assaulted on reservations and nearby towns at far higher rates than other American women. Their assailants are often white and other non-Native American men outside the jurisdiction of tribal law enforcement. In some U.S. counties composed primarily of Native American lands, murder rates of Native American women are up to 10 times higher than the national average for all races, according to a study for the U.S. Department of Justice by sociologists at the University of Delaware and University of North Carolina, Wilmington. • How a little blue pill branded Viagra went from a medical mistake to a $3 billion industry: The revolutionary erectile-dysfunction drug is celebrating the twentieth anniversary of its Brobdingnagian launch in a most auspicious way: by finally going generic. The ramifications for generic sildenafil (the scientific name) are huge for your pocketbook and your health. Viagra’s high demand and cost (about seventy dollars a pill) have made it among the most bootlegged meds in the world, and one of the top sellers for Internet pharmacies. A study presented at the World Meeting on Sexual Medicine found that 77 percent of Viagra sold online was fake. • Judge tosses libel lawsuit by three Russian oligarchs against author of Steele dossier on Trump. • Ebola spreads in the Congo—90 cases, 49 deaths. • When Rotten Tomatoes rates Netflix original movies, there are no grays: Netflix doesn’t do average. The streaming-video behemoth’s original movies are either great or abysmal, a Quartz analysis of Rotten Tomatoes scores reveals. There’s virtually nothing in between. Movies branded by Netflix as originals and released in the US in 2018 have Tomatometer scores of 60% or higher, meaning they’re considered “Fresh,” or worth a watch, by critics on the site, or they have “Rotten” scores of 31% or less. On today’s Kagro in the Morning show: Papadopoulos sentencing looms. Guess what? Someone found Steve Scalise's baggage! Anti-Antifa trolls trolled. Russians love hacking, and Rusians love Florida.

A.J. Hinch: Roberto Osuna will be closer going forward

The Houston Astros find themselves tied with the Oakland Athletics once again. Meanwhile, manager A.J. Hinch is still looking for answers. The Astros are 2-8 over their last 10 while the Athletics are 7-3 in their respective 10-game stretch. Now the Astros manager is ready to promote newly acquired reliever Roberto Osuna, so to speak. Per ESPN, expect Osuna to carry on as the primary closer going forward.“I wanted Héctor [Rondon] to know that I’m gonna start to use more in the seventh and eighth, which means that Osuna’s going to get the majority of save opportunities. But I need to use him in creative ways, too,” Hinch says.With 45.2 innings of work under his belt, Rondón has a 2.36 ERA, 2.60 FIP and 2.31 DRA. He’s striking out 29.2 percent of opposing hitters while walking 7.6 percent of them. He also has 13 saves on the season and has given up just two earned runs this month in 7.1 innings of work (2.45). But Hinch is going to turn to Osuna anyway, who has a career 2.84 ERA, 2.61 FIP and 2.81 DRA across 22

Jimmy Smith suspended four games for violating personal conduct policy

The Baltimore Ravens will be without starting cornerback Jimmy Smith for the first four games of the 2018 season after the NFL handed down a four-game ban for a violation of the league’s personal conduct policy. This suspension did not come out of nowhere, as on Monday Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reported the Ravens were bracing for a multiple-game suspension.Zrebiec also reported that Smith will be appealing the suspension.At this time, there are no further details about exactly what Smith did to violate the NFL’s personal conduct policy. However, the league has been looking into a custody battle between Smith and the mother of his first child, Micaela Sanchez, who alleged he used illegal drugs last year and abused her physically.Since being selected No. 27 overall in the 2011 NFL Draft, Smith has started 68 games for Baltimore, tallying 11 interceptions, 59 passes defensed and two touchdowns.
