Paul Manafort pleads guilty in Mueller probe

Source: MSNBC

Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, has agreed with federal prosecutors to plead guilty in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe, court filings Friday show.

A superseding criminal information against Manafort, 69, was filed Friday in the District of Columbia, which alleges a conspiracy against the United States (money laundering, tax fraud, failing to file Foreign Bank Account Reports, violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act, and lying and misrepresenting to the Department of Justice) and a conspiracy to obstruct justice (witness tampering).

News that Manafort and special counsel Robert Mueller's office were nearing a deal was first reported by ABC News, and later confirmed by The New York Times, Reuters and Fox News.

Jury selection for the trial, in a Washington, D.C., federal court, had been scheduled to start Monday.

Trump on Twitter: "3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico."

Unreal.

3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000...

.....This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!

Trump knows something is about to break.

I know he's already insane on Twitter every morning, but this morning he's really losing it.

Myself, a Graham supporter, just donated to Gillum. You should to.

I spent a year living in Florida and would have voted for Graham if I hadn't needed to move back to Indiana earlier this year.

Still, I'm extremely excited to have a real progressive as the nominee in Florida and just donated to his campaign. It doesn't matter to me that Graham lost, I'm ALL IN for Gillum now!!

This is a HUGE opportunity. If you can, you should donate as well.

Whatever it is the Democratic Party is doing, keep doing it!

Democratic Party approval is polling at it's highest in the generic ballot since January.

Michael Cohen in talks to plead guilty to criminal charges

Source: CNN

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former personal attorney, is in talks to plead guilty to criminal charges in a deal that would bring an end to a months-long investigation that has riled the President, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The details of the plea are still being negotiated, the sources cautioned, and talks could fall apart. The US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York is investigating Cohen for potential bank fraud, tax fraud and campaign finance violations. If talks fall apart, federal prosecutors are expected to indict Cohen.

As part of the plea deal under discussion, Cohen is not expected to cooperate with the government, one source said. However, by pleading guilty both Cohen and prosecutors would avoid the spectacle and uncertainty of a trial.

NBC News reported earlier Tuesday on Cohen's potential plea deal.

Pollsters: Trump and GOP are losing young, female voters permanently

Pollsters Anna Greenberg and Dan Cox said on Monday that President Trump and Republicans are losing young women to Democrats permanently.

"When you ask millennial women who are likely voters, about 65, 68 percent would actually vote for a Democrat in the generic congressional race, so that puts them as base Democratic voters," Greenberg, a partner at Greenberg, Quinlan, Rosner, told Hill.TV's Krystal Ball on "What America's Thinking."

"What we know is that in your coming of age years, from sort of your teens into your early 20s, have a profound, long-term impact on what your partisanship and voting patterns are for the rest of your life," she continued.

"So, not only in this moment are these millennial women heavily, heavily Democratic and heavily hostile to Trump, but it's likely that they are going to sort of be the vanguard of, I think, the feminization of the Democratic Party," she said.

Omarosa to release secret recording on MSNBC at 1 p.m. ET

Take it for what it's worth, but she's certainly taking back the news cycle from Trump again.

I know primary turnout isn't always indicative of general election turnout, but...

I think it's notable that roughly 80,000 more people voted in the Wisconsin Democratic Primary than Republican in the Governors Race...and District 1 (Paul Ryan's old seat), more Democrats also voted than Republicans.

Bodes very well for November!
