Donald Trump has had the worst week of his presidency to date, and no day of it was quite as bad as Friday when Robert Mueller and the state of New York released their sentencing memos for former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen and his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort.

The New York Post captured the day perfectly with their latest cover.

This is not a cover Trump is likely to hang next to the fake ones from Time magazine at his golf clubs. In fact, he is sure to be enraged by a paper from his home state pointing out all of the many revelations released on Friday and throughout the week that spell the beginning of the end of Trump’s presidency.

On Friday night after the documents went public, Trump tried to convince his supporters that the sentencing memos “totally cleared” him. That couldn’t be further from the truth; in fact, it’s the exact opposite of the truth. What’s more, Trump knows it. He’s just counting on his supporters being too ignorant to know that.

Instead of clearing the president, the memos implicate him in two felonies, committed by Michael Cohen “at the direction of” the then-presidential candidate. Directing someone to commit felonies, especially when that person is caught and confesses that the felonies were committed because of another person’s insistence, is in itself a felony act if the person directing the other to commit those acts knows that what he’s asking is illegal.

What’s more, both Cohen’s and Manafort’s sentencing memos prove that both lied about contacts with Russian government officials. Mueller’s team has solid proof of this. The Russian collusion investigating is, therefore, far from over.

Trump has likely not seen his worst days. Those will likely come during the hearings regarding his impeachment.
