Manafort's conviction on the eight counts came in the same hour that Trump's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty in NY to campaign finance violations and other charges.

She also said the jury "agreed to throw out the testimony" of Manafort protege Rick Gates, who pleaded guilty in Mueller's investigation and agreed to cooperate with investigators, and focus instead on the documents.

Or Trump could fire Mueller and shut down the investigation.

"What we're doing is winning", Trump told cheering supporters.

Additionally, 40 percent of respondents think Mueller will find evidence Trump committed a crime or an impeachable offense.

His lawyer, former NY mayor Rudy Giuliani, said the Cohen plea deal wasn't related to Trump.

Lanny Davis, Cohen's attorney, was more direct, saying in a statement later Tuesday that Cohen "stood up and testified under oath that Donald Trump directed him to commit a crime by making payments to two women for the principal goal of influencing an election".

The family expressed sympathy for the Tibbetts family, and regret that one of their employees could be involved in such a crime. Richards argued for a gag order in the case and mentioned President Donald Trump , who he described as "sad and sorry Trump".

Dean, counsel under President Richard Nixon, went to jail for his role in the Watergate scandal, but also co-operated with the government.

Prosecutors said Cohen arranged a separate payment to Stormy Daniels, referred to as Woman-2, to prevent her from speaking to the press. His loyal base of supporters has stayed with him despite his effort to blame "both sides" for the deadly violence between white nationalists and anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, for one, and his refusal to side with the US intelligence services over Russia's Vladimir Putin in Helsinki last month, among other controversies. President Trump has not commented on whether or not he would be willing to offer a pardon to his former campaign manager. "It is clear that, as the prosecutor noted, Mr Cohen's actions reflect a pattern of lies and dishonesty over a significant period of time". Trump, concerned by the legal downfall of two former advisers, accused Sessions of failing to take control of the Justice Department, leading Sessions to declare that he and his department "will not be improperly influenced by political considerations".

Calk ultimately did not join the Trump administration.

Of Cohen's plea, Bannon argued Tuesday that it "takes away the argument from those who are telling the president it's not that bad if he loses the House". He commits so many faux pas, is politically incorrect so often, skirts potential legal issues so frequently, that no one transgression ever seems to stick. Are they high enough to end the Trump presidency, though? "You're voting for which party controls the House and which party controls the Senate".

Allies of the president stressed an untested legal theory that a sitting president can not be indicted - only impeached.

Addressing a rally here in the run-up to November's midterm elections, Trump was quoted by CNN saying, "Fake news and the Russian witch hunt". His account appears to implicate Trump in a crime, though whether - or when - a president can be prosecuted is in dispute.

In a statement to U.S. media, Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani said, "there is no allegation of any wrongdoing against the President in the government's charges against Mr. Cohen".

The battle for Ghazni killed at least 100 members of the Afghan security forces and 35 civilians, according to Afghan officials. The government previously announced a ceasefire with the Taliban during the Eid al-Fitr holiday in June this year.

Despite blustery public denials, the fate of Manafort and Cohen has anxious the president's inner circle.

In April, federal investigators for the Southern District of NY seized roughly 4 million files from Cohen's home, business office and hotel room.

In his interview with "Fox & Friends", which was taped at the White House on Wednesday and aired Thursday, Trump railed against Cohen for "flipping". Both women have alleged that they had sexual affairs with Trump, which he has denied. Manafort did not testify at trial and his lawyers conducted mostly limited questioning of the government's witnesses.

Several questions remain, including what this means for President Donald Trump, how this affects special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and what's next for Trump's former campaign chairman.

As he watched the courtroom proceedings, he told confidants that he feared his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., could at some point be the one on trial, according to two people familiar with his thinking but not authorized to discuss private conversations. Or did some jurors believe Gates and others were not as deeply involved as they said they were in Manafort's alleged banking schemes?
