Trump's former attorney, Michael Cohen, was sentenced. Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance and business crimes, tax evasion, and bank fraud.

What is starting to take shape is the extent to which President Trump is implicated in those and other crimes.

Prosecutors in New York released court documents showing that Cohen made illegal hush money payments at the direction of President Trump.

The Southern District of New York says Michael Cohen paid off Stormy Daniels, a porn star, and a Playboy model to cover up affairs just days before the presidential election in 2016 at the direction of then-candidate Trump.

President Trump has been implicated. The Southern District of New York can point to the fact that President Trump directed Michael Cohen to make the payments. That's a crime under campaign finance laws.

According to The Washington Post, at least 14 Trump associates during the campaign and transition were in communication with Russians. What do Trump-bots make of that?

Trump-bots, when they talk about this, view it as a coincidence that 14 Trump associates were talking to Russians.

The poll I saw yesterday had Trump approval with the Rasmussen polls at 49 percent. I think that speaks volumes for biased polling.

Clinton and Trump had the lowest favorability and highest unfavorability ratings since polling started collecting that data in 1956.

When you look at the polling average from FiveThirtyEight, you find the president's approval rating more like 42 percent, disapproval about 52 percent. It's been in that range for months. Even that number is being very kind to the trumpster in the dumpster.
