Michael Cohen is no longer "mouthing" off in the media. He's been quiet for about 3-weeks now. That's ALWAYS a sign an indicted individual is cooperating with the prosecutor. Michael has a lot of information to reveal about Trump - going back years! He knows where all of the bodies are buried. He knows about all of Russian financial connections with Trump and how "leveraged" Trump is to the Russian "Mafia"-State!
More to the point, Cohen can shine a bright light on the "scuttle-but" that took place in the Trump campaign in June-2016 just prior to the infamous June 9, 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Manafort, Kushner & Trump, Jr. & the Russian lady-lawyer & the Russian-American lobbyist. The purpose of that meeting was to get "dirt" on Hillary Clinton. Cohen can go into the fine details as to who in the White House knew ahead of time about this meeting - including whether the president himself knew in advance.
Paul Manafort is likely to get convicted sometime this week by the Alexandria, Virginia jury. He's facing 18-counts against him. He's also set for a second trial in September. In all likelihood Mr. Manafort is facing several hundred years of prison time. Unless he's a vampire, he will not emerge alive from such a stint in the state penal system.
He may be a tough guy, but he's got a wife and two daughters. He himself is 70-years old. Trump could pardon him but Manafort would be facing the same charges under New York state law and would be, again, found criminally liable. Trump's pardon would do him no good under this scenario.
So, if I were Manafort, I'd be getting pretty close to "flipping" out - after the trial just held wherein his lawyers did not call any supporting witnesses for Manafort, nor did they call Manafort to the
