Good morning.

Here&rsquos what you require to know:

A a single-two punch for the president

&bull President Trump was dealt double legal setbacks on Tuesday, as his former individual lawyer, Michael Cohen, implicated him in a federal crime, and his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was discovered guilty of bank and tax fraud. Here&rsquos a swift appear at what happened, and at what comes next.

In pleading guilty to breaking campaign finance laws and other charges, Mr. Cohen told a judge in Manhattan that Mr. Trump had directed him to arrange payments to two ladies during the 2016 campaign, to hold them from speaking publicly about affairs they mentioned they had with Mr. Trump.

&ldquoI participated in this conduct, which on my part took location in Manhattan, for the principal goal of influencing the election,&rdquo Mr. Cohen stated. Here&rsquos our full story about his day in court, as properly as six takeaways from the guilty plea.

&bull Mr. Cohen has implicated Mr. Trump in significant crimes, but the Justice Department has long mentioned that sitting presidents are not subject to criminal prosecution. Prosecutors could take other actions, however, which includes presenting evidence to the Home for impeachment proceedings.
