Trump Defends Manafort, Slams Cohen After Convictions

President Trump continued to defend former campaign chairman Paul Manafort Wednesday morning after a Northern Virginia jury found him guilty on eight felony counts of bank fraud and tax evasion Tuesday afternoon. 

Trump did the same yesterday on his way to a rally in West Virginia.

But Trump isn't offering the same sympathy for his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen, who claimed in a New York federal court room yesterday that the presidential candidate directed him to violate campaign finance laws with payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal. 

Cohen's lawyer, Clinton operative Lanny Davis, vows more is coming.
