It kind of feels like we’re entering the end game, huh? Mueller’s filings on Cohen and Manafort have dropped. And the Michael Cohen sentencing memo released by the Southern District of New York earlier today makes clear that Trump directed Cohen to commit a felony.
SDNY and Mueller prosecutors said in filings today that 1) Trump, unambiguously, directed and coordinated with Cohen to make illegal hush-money payments during the 2016 campaign and 2) that Cohen consulted Trump in Sept. 2015 about contacting the Russian government. https://t.co/lwbQcBzmq7

Oh, and the stock market is tanking, with the Dow plunging 1,150 points this week because the boy president thinks trade wars are cool.
Rough week — and rougher night — for Individual 1 in the White House.
And in other news today: Nazi piece of shit James Fields was found guilty on all counts for murdering Heather Heyer and injuring numerous others by driving his car into a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville.
Lots to discuss!
