Donald Trump’s horoscope for today:  There will be much breaking news about legal cases that may or may not affect you.  But the stars are saying they probably won’t.

On the same day that Trump’s personal attorney and noted “fixer” Michael Cohen reached a plea agreement with prosecutors in the Southern District of New York that could land him in prison for 3-5 years, the jury in the Paul Manafort trial taking place in Virginia reached a unanimous verdict of “guilty” on 8 out of 18 counts.  They said they couldn’t agree on the other 10 counts, and Judge T. S. Ellis III declared a mistrial on those.

But since the defendant is 69 years old, he could be spending the rest of his life in prison.

This trial is the first to result from Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling and possible “collusion” with the Trump campaign.   Notice that none of the charges faced by Manafort, let alone the ones he’s been convicted of, have anything to do with the Trump campaign –- or with Donald Trump himself in any way, except for the unfortunate fact that Trump employed him for a few months. 

That's all for now.  Much more to say about this tomorrow.

    Thanks Mike, I am 100 % for Donald Trump, and I hope now he will use the power he has and step on Mueller like a bug, and show him he can not go around hurting people for his own gain. There was a day we all looked up to anyone in the FBI,now we do not trust any of them and that is a very big shame, there is many good people there. I would like for President Trump to clean house and not stop tell many of the past Presidency is behind bars.

    Just another reason not to put faith in astrology. Trump is going down and the likes of you and Sarah are going down with him.

    I keep looking for substance, and keep finding these investigators only proving the witnesses are typical political cannon fodder without any real connection. This seems to match the definition of a kangaroo court. I thought we were better than all of this deceit. Lord have mercy.

    If the 2 men are guilty of crimes that is on their heads. President Trump is not guilty by association. How many people do each of us come in contact with every day of our lives who have done actions we ourselves would never do, I suspect quit a few. Our family never thought we were voting for a "righteous" man for President but we did believe we voted for the one unafraid to tell Truth we already knew. That makes President Trump a keeper and we will not let him go down without a fight!! President Donald Trump 2020.
