MSNBC’s O’Donnell on Cohen, Manafort: ‘Today, The Trump Presidency Took a Giant Step Toward Impeachment’

‘And so today Donald Trump made history by becoming the first president of the United States to be accused under oath in federal court of ordering someone to commit a federal crime to win a presidential election’

RUSH EXCERPT:

O'DONNELL: "Well, this is the day that changed everything in the Trump presidency and Donald Trump knows it. Because today the trump presidency took a giant step toward impeachment. It happened in a courtroom in Manhattan when these words were spoken. “At the direction of,” meaning at the direction of the president of the United States. And when a defendant is pleading guilty in court, it is very difficult for the defendant to say something more important than the word guilty. That’s usually the most important word a defendant speaks during a guilty plea session. But today in federal court in Manhattan Michael Cohen said “Guilty, your honor” eight times and he’s also said “At the direction of” twice. And both times he meant at the direction of the president of the United States. And so today Donald Trump made history by becoming the first president of the United States to be accused under oath in federal court of ordering someone to commit a federal crime to win a presidential election."
