President Trump’s Defense From Allegations That He Knew About The Theft Of Democratic Emails In 2016 May Have Led To Obstruction Of Justice. Is It To Coverup A Crime Or Just Bad Spin Doctoring?

Dec. 3, 2018 -- As he departed the United States on Thursday for Argentina to attend the G-20 Summit, the reports were that Donald Trump was “spooked” and unhappy. (Based on photos taken Friday, he certainly looked like it.)

One main reason why: Michael Cohen, his former attorney, admitted in court that he earlier lied about Trump’s attempt to build a tower in Moscow in 2016.

That agreement with special counsel Robert Mueller’s office could spell direct trouble for Donald Trump Jr., who testified last year that he had no role in any deal. If it turns out he lied, Trump Jr. could face indictment.

There’s the matter of Paul Manafort, Trump’s campaign manager, who faces more prison time for violating his plea agreement terms for lying to investigators.

Meanwhile, two Trump acolytes -- Jerome Corsi and Roger Stone -- may also be in legal trouble for their actions in the 2016 campaign.

While these developments don’t directly connect the president to colluding with Russia to win the 2016 electoral college, they reinforce the idea that Trump is compromised, financially or otherwise. That may explain why his approval ratings remain in the toilet.

In today’s podcast, Modern Times Publisher John Guzzon and Karen Weil, editor at large, discuss another week of bad news -- from General Motors layoffs to continuing fallout from the Jamal Khashoggi murder -- mean for Trump.
