President Donald Trump was not implicated when the verdict was given in Northern Virginia, but a guilty plea in Manhattan did implicate him. However, legal experts say it may be very hard to prove that he actually did anything wrong. They still believe that these two events in court could possibly be bad news for the president.
In Alexandria, Virginia a jury found Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort guilty on eight counts of tax and bank fraud. The more pressing issue for him is that his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, implicated him in what prosecutors are calling a campaign finance violation.
The question is where this has the potential to go from here. Former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida, Kendall Coffey said, “The next step is, if they haven’t already, the Southern District of New York will turn over everything to the Mueller team,”.
