On Tuesday, President Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michal Cohen pleaded guilty to eight counts of tax and bank fraud.
This bombshell news was accompanied by the fact that the president’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was also found guilty on tax fraud.
Despite this, The Five on Fox brushed off the news as not a big deal. Host Greg Gutfeld said there is other news to focus on because he knows Michael Cohen and Donald Trump aren’t “squeaky clean.”
“I know that Cohen isn’t squeaky clean. I know that Manafort isn’t squeaky clean. Hell, I know Trump isn’t squeaky clean,” he said.
Gutfeld added, “This isn’t about these guys, this is about reversing an election. That’s all this is. People are getting so wrapped up in it, and there is real stuff going on. It’s not breaking news that Cohen is a fixer.”

I know that Manafort isn’t squeaky clean. Hell, I know Trump isn’t squeaky clean… pic.twitter.com/l2OYzC4P4B

‘A coward and a commander’: New Lincoln Project ad contrasts Trump with James Mattis
On Friday, the conservative anti-Trump group The Lincoln Project released a new attack ad against President Donald Trump — this time using the criticism of his former Defense Secretary James Mattis, and comparing and contrasting their leadership ability.
"This is the story of a coward and a commander," said the ad's narrator. "The coward Trump dodged the draft. Jim Mattis led American troops for forty years. While a frightened Trump hides from protesters in a deep bunker firing off tweets, Jim Mattis does what he's always done: Leads. While Donald Trump angrily attacks, General Mattis' words deserve to be heard by every American."
