Yesterday, the Bard might say, President Trump suffered the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune at the hands of once trusted friend Michael Cohen, and the conviction of Paul Manafort, the president's ex-campaign chairman.

Manafort was found guilty on 8 felony counts on the same day Cohen pleaded guilty to paying "hush" money allegedly at Trump's direction. Both men are former friends of the President. The scene is set for one of the strangest scenarios ever in American political history.

The criminal Michael Cohen now says (according to his new attorney) that he would not accept a pardon from Trump, because "He considers a pardon from somebody who has acted so corruptly as president to be something he would never accept". What was that about the pot calling the kettle black? Or is that just racist today?

Manafort was praised by the President following the conviction. While Trump accused Cohen of lying to prosecutors in order to get a deal, he stated unlike Michael Cohen, "he [Manafort] refused to break” - make up stories in order to get a “deal.” "Such respect for a brave man!."

Republicans rightly condemn the trials of both men, unlawfully begun during Special Counsel Robert Mueller's unlawful appointment. The investigation was for crimes, which required that a crime be identified to initiate the investigation. No crime has ever been identified in this so-called Russian collusion farce. The doctrine of the Fruit of the Poisonous Tree should have been applied long ago - this exclusionary rule would have thrown out evidence unlawfully gained in this unlawful investigation. Mueller's investigation of alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign in 2016 should not have begun, and has found nothing after nearly 2 years.

Democrats and Never-Trump anarchists are on a tear. They smell blood and see a path to impeaching President Trump. That's what all of this political machination has been about since our marshmallow Attorney General Jeff Sessions melted away. They won't get there but the fight has begun in earnest. The Democrats have their plan, but as the saying goes, attributed to Mike Tyson, "Everyone's got a plan, until you're hit in the face." Liberals, anarchists, socialists, and other anti-Constitutionalists are about to receive the second part of Tyson's observation.

For the first time in my life I believe that this country could actually explode into revolutionary chaos due the inability of the Left to accept Donald Trump as their legitimate president. If Trump should lose this fight and be impeached by the crooked Left, all bets are off.

This country is as politically and emotionally unstable as I have ever seen it.
