SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM: "Campaign finance violations, I don't know what will come from that, but the thing that will hurt the President the most is if, in fact, his campaign did coordinate with a foreign govt like Russia, anything short of that is probably going to fall into partisan camps"

In which a senior GOP member, and lawyer, admits that any crime short of actual treason will be overlooked by Republicans on Capitol Hill. Something tells me they wouldn't have extended Hillary the same courtesy.

Hannity and his usual crowd really playing the hits tonight. No collusion, what about Clinton, need a special counsel to investigate the investigators, Rod Rosenstein is running a coverup, etc.

Reminder that no other network would let someone with Sean Hannity's level of conflict of interest talk about his lawyer and friend Michael Cohen's guilty plea.

Important and/but on predictions of how this will play politically - Trump when cornered can be at his most dangerous, according to ppl who know him well. And the day after Access Hollywood tape, Ryan and Heller were booed for voicing any distance from Trump.

AF1 en route Washington. Given that two of the crimes longtime lawyer Cohen pleaded guilty to today are connected to Trump himself, the day ends with the President in, almost certainly, greater legal jeopardy

Today's bottom line: the President of the United States has been implicated - by one of his oldest and heretofore loyal and trusted aides - in federal crimes. His party, which claims to be the "law and order" party, which claims to revere the Constitution, has reacted with a yawn

Washington Post editorial: "Congress must open investigations into Mr. Trump’s role in the crime Mr. Cohen has admitted to...Legislators cannot in good conscience ignore an alleged co-conspirator in the White House."

After all, what candidate hasn't directed his lawyer to buy silence from a woman he was having an affair with just days after his wife gave birth, and then use campaign funds to repay the hush money?

Again, it’s a Rigged Witch Hunt like no other.

Deep State trapped Manafort into bank fraud years ago, while Cohen was also trapped into it — all because Deep State knew Trump would become president many years later.

Then Deep State tricked Trump into hiring both. Diabolical.

 Is this the same Lindsey Graham who was ready to impeach Bill Clinton for much less?

LATEST: Trump didn’t yell, rant or lose his cool over news Cohen had implicated him in a crime or that Manafort guilty on 8 counts.

He didn’t criticize either ex-aide, I’m told. No talk of pardons.

But he was somber. There was no joking around on AF1 like there sometimes is.

Aides were aware this was a very bad day and relieved Trump had distractions:

—travel companions. Alex Mooney, Shelley Moore Capito, Cory Gardner talked to him on legislative issues, Schumer gripes.

—roundtable, photo line, rally in WV. So he was busy w people happy to see him.

Here's the difference between Fox & everyone else on a night like this: Fox shows acknowledge the news, yes, but don't give it the serious wall-to-wall coverage that it merits. Instead, the shows move on... to safer subjects like confederate statues and Dem "extremism" and VMAs.

Someone please explain to me how the President can't be indicted for breaking the law if he's only president BECAUSE he broke the law.

This presidency may come down to whether the Supreme Court reconciles that very question.

It's just one of many reasons we CANNOT let Trump appoint Brett Kavanaugh who has said a sitting President CAN'T BE INDICTED.

We already confirmed that President Trump's: son, son-in-law, and Campaign Chair actively conspired with the Russians to cyber-attack the US to help Trump's 2016 election, undermining our democracy. Trump's personal attorney may confirm Trump himself was in on the conspiracy.
