Democratic strategist Paul Begala warned conservative pundit Jason Miller that things are going to get much worse for President Donald Trump.
In wake of the guilty plea for Michael Cohen and guilty counts for Paul Manafort, sources at the White House indicated those closest to Trump are worried.
“What’s astonishing, Poppy, is that Michael Cohen, the man who said he would take a bullet from Donald Trump, is now holding a gun to his head,” Begala said. “This is the worst day of the Trump presidency, but I have to tell you, there are worse days to come. Mr. Cohen knows where all the bodies are buried. He will have a powerful incentive to coordinate.”
He went on to say that he was shocked by Cohen’s admission that implicated the president while he was under oath.
“He said I acted in coordination with Trump,” Begala continued. “He said I did it with the coordination and at the behest of Donald Trump. Now he’s not going to say that unless there’s more evidence to back that up. Documentation, maybe even tapes. Goodness knows Mr. Cohen was maybe unethically taping Mr. Trump from time to time. This is the worst day so far but I’ve got to tell you.”

Rick Santorum falls apart during CNN defense of Trump as fellow Republican Charlie Dent smirks
As CNN contributor Rick Santorum struggled to defend Donald Trump's quid pro quo proposal to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky on Friday morning, his fellow Pennsylvania Republican, former Rep. Charlie Dent, laughed at his fumbling for answers.
Sitting down with "New Day" host John Berman, Santorum once again attempted to make the case that the president was withholding aid over Ukraine corruption and not because he was seeking dirt on political opponents -- and didn't fare well as Berman kept fact-checking him.
With the two former GOP lawmakers on split-screen, Santorum refused to concede that the president was asking for a personal favor during the phone-call that eventually led to a House impeachment inquiry into the president's actions.
