"Two further inland. A federal judge in Virginia has sentence of former Trump campaign boss for tax and Bank fraud. I just got off the phone with CBS news correspondent Steve Dorsey much lighter than expect sentence for the president's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, forty seven months in prison just shy of for years for tax and Bank fraud million dollar question. Why such a light sentence, especially given the guidelines? The question that a lot of political experts are asking, especially all the legal experts are asking as well, why the judge took such sympathy on Paul Manafort who admittedly into the courtroom in a green jumpsuit with a wheelchair. Cane who appeared much more frail and thin. In the past. But this is far short of the twenty five year guidelines that prosecutors had originally been pushing for and I think some folks who were allies of the special counsel or worried how this could affect his sentencing next week DC or he'll be sentenced directly for crimes tied to the Russell Crowe. Possible that the judge could take the same approach to leniency that that this judge in the eastern district of Virginia talk, and according to guidelines in terms of the sentencing fast forward to next week. How much could he get maximum could be significant especially since Paul Manafort violated a plea agreement that the special counsel I've had worked out with him. And and that's their major concern, you touched upon a little bit on the judges sympathy yesterday toward Paul Manafort. Do we have any indication at this point Steve on the reasons the premises behind the judge's decision on such a light sentence? The judge in the case. Sympathy on St Paul Manafort, he appeared in court. In a green suit with the wheelchair. And the judge said historic that. He wasn't being here for any of the crimes. The Russia probe instead worth Bank attack. Grow charges from the beginning. Legal apex has put blame on other people, especially accountant adviser. Who? It appears that the judge may have taken that consideration. Again at CBS news correspondent Steve Dorsey. Meanwhile, Pam Paul Manafort, he's been jailed since June. So he will be receiving credit for the nine months. He has already served. He still faces the possibility of additional time from his sentencing in a separate case in Washington DC that is happening next week Columbia gas of Massachusetts will be hosting a series of open house meetings. Tomorrow March nine to provide the community with updates on its spring activities in a community deeply affected by the September thirteenth gas disaster.

"The best deal in Pittsburgh, big news today out of Washington regarding Michael Cohen, the president's former attorney also Pam Paul Manafort, the president's campaign manager for a period of time during the two thousand sixteen run for the election and information released not only from special counsel, Robert Muller's office. But also federal prosecutors out of New York as well the charges being brought down and the sentencing guideline, actually. Michael Cohen already pleaded guilty to the charges the sentencing recommendations, really upwards of like fifty months, the sixty months at this point and Robert Muller saying all right, listen, we should give them a little bit of a break. Just a little bit below the guideline, but you're still talking about upwards of four years. For years on those charters Muller saying that he is satisfied with those charters that those that that sentence. He's not looking for any additional time on top of that. And there's a lot of speculation about what that ultimately means in all of this as well. And then you have Paul Manafort today and the documents regarding him, and it looks as though everything that Paul Manafort is facing here in the document put out by the special counsel's office is all about his. Business doings. But it doesn't seem as though there's any connection back to the president at all. I wanna play this clip for you from CBS as they kind of bullet-point through what it is that moulder is dealing with right now. These are the five things that a special counsel says Paul Manafort lied about under oath number one his interactions with Constantine Kalinic number two clinics role in the obstruction conspiracy. Basically saying that Manafort gave him a call after speaking to investigators and said, hey, let's get on the same page, and maybe even talk to some other folks about how we can all spin and untrue story number three payment to affirm working for Manafort one hundred twenty five thousand dollar payment that went through some shell companies and was not as Manafort described number four a second DOJ investigation. And this is a beautiful redaction. Just like, you know, an inch and a half. The paragraph that just steals you of all understanding of what's going on Manafort provided information about redacted that was pertinent to an investigation in another district. And then the fifth point as we've discussed manafort's contact with the administration again apparently to get on the same page something that happened it on the curious side about forty minutes or so ago, the president put out a tweet and the just regular tweet from the president you almost expect that on a regular basis, especially with all the news. That's coming out today. But it's what it says totally clears the president. Thank you. And granted this information. That's out today. Does not mention the president at all whether you're dealing with Cohen, or you're dealing with Paul Manafort, but to then suggest a completely clears. I'm not seeing that one either especially considering there's so much that's been redacted and why so much. What is there that we are not to know at least not yet? Now, granted it could all be information of a national security interest. That that information is redacted. It could also be that it is an important for them to have to disclose legally. And they're trying to protect their case as they continue to build this and keep that information from whom exactly who else is there that. Special counsel. Robert Muller is considering going after. Injuring you're already at the top of our as far as a campaign manager with Paul Manafort. There's talk about stone. Yes. And then did you get to see Fox News? Where judge Napolitano talking about how he has contacts. That are close associates with Donald Trump junior. And his claim that Trump junior is anticipating that he is going to be charged sometime soon. So although the president may be tweeting totally clears the president. It doesn't really clear everyone. I thought it was kind of curious that Nevada tunnel would put that out that Trump junior is expecting to be charged. Now granted being charged is not being guilty. That's clear. However, one of the things that's happening. So far with the special counsel is he doesn't bring up flimsy cases. If he has a case that he's about to bring he gets guilty pleas at this point. They see the evidence. It's absolutely overwhelming. And they're willing to say, okay, fine. You got me if there is a charge. That's ultimately brought that Donald Trump junior apparently is expecting. It will definitely be one that is severe enough and strong enough with all the evidence to go along with it will continue to monitor this to see how things ultimately progress, but what a huge day out of Washington and the president doing a pretty good job to at not allowing just this to be the only new story of the day because you also have. His decision for the attorney general. You also have his decision for the new UN ambassador that was taking up a lot of coverage. But now he may have put it out a little too early. Because now at the end of the cycle. This is all there's going to be discussion on maybe he's hoping that you know, what it's quarter to seven on a Friday and people are ready to go out and enjoy themselves and not pay that much attention to what's happening in Washington politics. And to some extent, I think that is true. There's some extent I genuinely do however for those that are really into this both on the side of the aisle where they are great supporters of the president. They're still paying attention and for those that are not. They are to maybe he's hoping that the middle. Is that playing and having a good time already can UK radio. News.

"Small town. Victor. I guess I'm probably not the kind of person you are. Oh, you do not want to be friends with me. Trust me. It's just a it's a bizarre. It. You know, what it looks like just from the previews it looks like gone girl. Have we seen that movie five times already at least? And we hated it every single time. But you saw the predator. Let me just say this very quickly one of my favorite movies of all time as far as cult classics though is predator from nineteen eighty-seven Arnold, Schwarzenegger and everything. And if you remember in that movie, they have this crack unit of at maybe like green berets or whatever and CIA working with them. Well, this the predator flips all that around where you have basically. Not green berets, the not a crack of these military operatives. They use the word rag tag crew. Yes. Yes. The the preview that I saw this morning almost made it look like the a team without the brains. Yes. Very similar. I think that's an app comparison. Everything there are a lot of similarities, it is a direct sequel their music cues are exactly the same. The call backs throwbacks to the original lie there twists on some classic lines. I don't wanna give it away. It's not a great movie. But I thought it was very enjoyable so fun. It's fun. The plots are ridiculous. It's it's absurd. And just about every way it's not serious in the way that the original was actually serious because he took it alien, and he made it into a serious movie. This is not a serious movie. There's so much Cussing. They're more f bombs in this movie. Then there are words in the dictionary. Yeah. That's why I couldn't play clip from it. I couldn't find one. All right.

"ACC you NET dot com Thirty thirty-seven Jeff Wagner WTMJ so I think again I think impeachment I think impeachment will certainly be something which, is discussed if Democrats take control of congress after. The November elections I think it would be unfortunate for this country if. We, then spent most of two thousand nineteen with, the impeachment issue ultimately if, if all we're, talking about and again I'm not minimizing this behavior it's bad behavior but if all we are talking about is g President, Trump could have paid these women not to tell their stories himself but. You went through. This kind of ham handed thing with this attorney if that's it I just I don't think the American people are going to. Be saying we're going, to overturn an election, result because of that just like in Wisconsin the idea that okay maybe there was some, people that didn't like ten thought it was an overreach or. Whatever but you're not going to overturn, an election because of, that so I think at Saint time though if. Democrats take control there's, going to be Credible pressure from the base that loads. Donald Trump to do exactly that I just think it's, going to be a long twenty nineteen if we're. Caught up in an impeachment battle Karl rove who of course was the. Architect, guy who knows a ton very controversial figure, but who knows a ton, about conservative politics, and was the architect of George Bush's victory he's got a piece in the Wall Street Journal let me share a portion, of it with you Cohen Manafort and midterms they show up for every. Presidential campaign wanna. Be like George popadopoulos self promoters like Carter page and worse Griffin's like, Paul Manafort and straphangers like Michael Cohen Griffin's attach themselves. To campaigns to refresh, their credentials so they, can sell their services to foreign governments and political parties or businesses looking to buy influence, strap hangers hope to land a job in the west wing. And if that's not possible to, cash, in on their connections, the consequences for president Trump of having people like this around him became clearer than ever Tuesday when his former campaign chairman Mike man Mr. Manafort was. Found guilty of tax and Bank fraud and hiding foreign Bank. Accounts while the president's longtime personal lawyer and, fixer Mr. Cohen pleaded guilty to tax evasion making false statements and campaign, finance violations let, me stop there for the second regardless of whether you love President Trump hate Pesident Trump. One of the things I think we could all. Agree on is what are you doing surrounding yourself with. People like Cohen. And Manafort I mean and it does say something it said something not good that these are the people. That you're putting in your orbit in any of. It you think continues so what's the likely political fallout from these courtroom bought bombshells first full disclosure when Mr. Manafort wrote Mr.. Trump in spring of, two, thousand, sixteen to offer his assistance he said I that. Would be Karl rove was his blood enemy by that Mr., Manafort referred to the Unsuccessful campaign he managed for my rival for the national chairmanship of, the college, Republicans in nineteen Seventy-three Mr. Manafort must have an enormous capacity for grudges I can't. Remember interacting with him, after that campaign and. I last, saw, him at the nineteen, Ninety-six GOP convention following Tuesday's verdict the. President declared that special counsel Robert Mueller's. Successful prosecution of Manafort had, nothing to, do, with Russia. Collusion Mr. Trump is right for now only the final special counsel report will settle definitively some defenders of the president dismissed the Manafort? Verdict as, a witch hunt this is wrong and unwise Mr Miller acted within its mandate and Mr. Manafort was found guilty of failing to pay taxes on thirty million. Dollars of income from consulting in the Ukraine eighteen million dollars of which he spent on clothing antiques real estate at home expenses though they may be distressed by the. Notion of, a, sixty nine year old Manafort spending decades in prison Mr. Trump's allies could spend their energy Better by pointing out the president. Was not involved in his schemes and was in fact used by I agree with all. That why President Trump last weekend decides eight Paul. Manafort's a great guy no Pam Paul manafort's a tax cheat and should probably be called out for that rove. Continues Mr Collins, guilty pleas troubling and not simply because Mr. cone admitted to paying, hush money to stormy Daniels and Karen. McDougal who claimed to have had. Affairs with Mr. Trump Mr. Cohen now says the Trump directed him to make the payments to protect the election prospects an. Action some believe constitutes a. Violation of campaign finance laws many legal experts doubt the payments were illegal etc etc for reasons that we've talked about still Tuesday's events will bring significant damage, Mr. Manafort and Cohen's legal troubles will further cement, in, the public's mind that corrupt, people weasel their way into Mr. Trump's orbit before and during his presidential campaign this notion will be reinforced. Further when Mr. Manafort next trial begins Since September over more charges of money laundering the events will also strengthen congressional Democrats argument that their. Party is a necessary check. On the president again then he goes. On to say it's unlikely. That he's, going to be indicted but for Mr. Trump's perspective he would be better. Off not attacking the Muller, probe and instead focusing on his agenda instead of obsessing on what has happened in the past I think that's the key if Republicans are not going to. Be slaughtered this November the message has to be look at what's going on in the economy stock market. Is going up people are back at work and, all this other, stuff is a bunch of, white, noise. That's what I think the message, has to be I'm not sure it can play well nationally but I do think it's got the potential to play well in the state of Wisconsin and when we come. Back we're gonna talk in, more detail about what the Marquette poll numbers show for Scott Walker And for liuqiu Khmer stick around twelve forty three Jeff Wagner WTMJ.

Net and sign up for his daily free Email newsletter wanna bring in our own. Michael Mckee right now he is our international, economics and. Policy correspondent for Bloomberg on a day in which the Chinese government says it will begin a twenty five percent tariff on imports of US refined products including diesel gasoline LPG's such as liquified. Propane this all begins August the twenty third and the list. Of petroleum, and oil related goods really goes on and on it's liquified propane it's lubricating oils and so on This is just a back and forth isn't it Michael yeah it's we're in the so's your mother phase of the tariffs both the United States and China announced fifty billion dollars worth. Of tariffs on each other the two sides, I imposed, thirty four. Billion and held back sixteen billion and now the US is going ahead. With the additional sixteen. Billion so China is retaliating well is there any understanding as to exactly what purpose this would serve because if you just drive up the prices of both countries products don't you. Just end up where you were before just more expensive I know a man in Washington you should talk, to it doesn't economists universally say this accomplishes nothing the Trump administration seems to, believe that by. Inflicting some economic pain on China that will bring them to the negotiating table to come up with some sort of agreement to curb their abuses. Of intellectual property theft and and other trade miss The things that they do wrong. Whether that will work remains to be seen but it doesn't look like, China's ready to give it well the United States hasn't seemed to. Be ready to be. Giving, getting in as well because right they're reviewing an additional ten percent? Of Tara well now twenty five percent the president raised that last, week as the US trade Representative to to raise? It to twenty. Five percent on two hundred billion dollars worth of Chinese. Imports now we import that much from China. China is going to rapidly run out of things to put tariffs on from the United States since they don't buy as much from us so we look to other areas in which they might affect trade including blocking mergers the Qualcomm merger Right and XP adding semiconductor Iraq departing adding to import restrictions or in extra inspections things like that and. At the same time there's a political element to this because of, course China neighbor of North Korea There's a political element to it the Trump administration seems to have, concluded that China. Is it is worth alienating, China that they don't need China's help so much, with North Korea right now That. Seems to be their calculation you've also got the political aspect of President Trump playing to his base for the midterm elections here and she Jinping in China Doesn't want to lose face to the US particularly after consolidating power so. Both leaders have incentive political incentive not to give in to the demographics favor China or the United, States in terms of growth Well when, you say demographics well I mean an a a The median age of consumers in Asia versus? Consumers, in the United States and just the number of consumers well it gives an advantage to the. United States in the sense that China, has rapidly ageing population. The, one child policy for so long her having an impact however they have much more room for growth in a consumer sense consumer spending sense because. They're switching their economy from more mercantile two more consumer led. And so there is still a lot of, possibilities for that we saw that. In, their trade numbers today? Huge, twenty-seven percent increase in imports Exports went up as well. Showing, no effect from the trades wars so far but a lot of imports of it getting ahead. Of the tariffs but definitely consumer spending, rising there now the. Chinese, economy perhaps more vulnerable because it needs to grow at a developing country rate and if it slows significantly because of the tariffs that could be. A problem the US has a more closed economy and doesn't. Need China as much although what we ended, up with would be higher inflation Which is. That which is supposedly not a good thing not. A good thing but according to the calculations by most economists including the folks, at, Bloomberg economics it would not be very much? Maybe, four, tenths of a percentage point if all the full tariffs, are imposed well done I know. You're, going to keep following, this forest much-appreciated Michael, Mckee is our international economics and policy correspondent? He just knows everything about what's going on in the world of the economy much appreciate it all right it is time now to go to our ninety nine one studios in Washington.
