The growing list includes Paul Manafort, Trump former campaign chairman, President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen, his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, his former deputy campaign chairman, Rick Gates and a former campaign policy adviser, George Papadopoulos

On Tuesday, Paul Manafort, his former campaign chairman, was found guilty on eight counts including five tax fraud charges. In all, Manafort was facing 18 counts, but the judge declared a mistrial on 10 other charges. 

The Justice Department may decide to retry him on those charges. He would be facing another trial in Washington DC for fraud in September.

The same day Manafort was found guilty in Alexandria,  President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty in a Manhattan, New York City courthouse to eight violations of banking, tax and campaign finance laws.

He also pleaded guilty to paying two women, including porn star Stormy Daniels, to silence them over an alleged affair they claimed they had with President Trump.

As the Washington Post reported, “Cohen — long the self-professed “fixer” for Trump — agreed to the deal after prosecutors claimed he risked more than a dozen years in prison, according to a person familiar with the matter”.

At a press conference in Washington DC on Tuesday, Senator Elizabeth Warren accused President Trump of running the most corrupt administration of all times. She introduced a broad legislation to fight corruption, and called for the establishment like in Nigeria of an anti-corruption agency.
