Last week, Donald Trump had a BAD week. And how did he handle it? Poorly, of course.
Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen pled guilty to eight felony charges related to fraud and said under oath that he committed crimes at the “direction of” Trump. The Manhattan district attorney's office is looking at whether or not the Trump Organization’s payments or reimbursements to Cohen — the ones intended to silence porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal — violated any campaign finance laws.
In addition, a couple of Trump's cohorts were granted immunity in the investigation, allowing them to speak freely without legal repercussions: Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg and National Enquirer publisher David Pecker. To top it off, Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was convicted of eight felonies related to fraud. Then, Trump continued his feud with Senator John McCain after he passed away on Saturday by, at first, refusing to put the White House flag at half-staff to honor the war hero and former presidential candidate.
How did Trump react overall? By tweeting, mostly. He trashed Cohen and called Manafort “brave.” More importantly, how did the Republicans in Congress react? By doing nothing. They’re too busy putting party over country.
We have to do our part this November by voting out the GOP.
