Tuesday has been a huge day in the history of our country and it will certainly be remembered that way. The White House took two seismic hits that could bring down the President of the United States. Paul Manafort was found guilty of eight felonies by a jury of his peers in Virginia, while the President's long-time fixer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to eight felony offenses, admitting he acted "in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office." Make no mistake about it, he was talking about the now-President of the United States. Read More

(CNN) - A week that began with bad news closed with worse news for President Donald Trump. According to the New York Times, the Manhattan district attorney's office is currently investigating the Trump Organization. In particular, they are examining the source of the payment to porn star Stormy Daniels, and whether any laws were violated in the payout or reimbursement of Michael Cohen, who paid Daniels the $130,000 in question to buy her silence.\r\n\r\nEarlier this week, in a Virginia courtroom, Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman, was convicted on eight felonies relating to fraud. Shockingly, the President's response to Manfort's conviction was to call him a "brave man" for whom he feels very "sad." Read More

(CNN) - Yet another black man dead, and yet another police officer exonerated for killing him. Seems a lot like deja vu. Haven't we seen this tragic movie before - all over the country? When investigated, the police are not indicted. And when indicted, they are not convicted. The venue this time -- Minnesota; the victim, motorist Philando Castile.\r\n\r\nSo what did Castile do that led to this tragic fate? He was driving with a broken tail light while supposedly fitting the description of a robbery suspect. His girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, was in the passenger seat while her 4-year-old daughter was in the back. Upon being stopped, he reported to Officer Jeronimo Yanez that he had a firearm on him. Thereafter, when attempting to produce his driver's license as instructed, and trying to unbuckle his seat belt to do so, he was shot dead in a hail of seven bullets. ..Read More

Almost a decade after the apparent suicide of "DC Madam" Deborah Jeane Palfrey, her story finally gets its own docuseries episode on HLN. As part of the network’s series How It Really Happened with Hill Harper, HLN premieres the episode "DC Madam: The Woman Who Knew Too Much" Friday at 9 p.m. The hour-long episode will delve into the controversial life and mysterious death of Palfrey, who ran an escort service that catered to DC’s elite. Before her death, she threatened to expose the names on her client list, which some suspect may have included more than 10,000 names. Criminal defense attorney and CNN/HLN legal analyst Joey Jackson, who is featured in the episode, spoke to Washingtonian about what makes this such a compelling story. Read More

(CNN) - Yet another seismic shift has occurred at Fox News, as conservative talk show host Bill O'Reilly is officially out amid a sea of sexual harassment allegations. And people are asking some important questions, like: Why did it take so long for the company to act on allegations of harassment that had been developing for years? And why did Fox pay O'Reilly tens of millions of dollars to leave?

This follows Roger Ailes' exit this past July, with allegations that sound eerily similar. It is said that one reaps what they sow. And given the seeds that were apparently planted by both Ailes and O'Reilly, it was just a matter of time before their positions became untenable -- and a new day dawned. A day when hard-working and professional woman would be respected, honored and valued for their talents - and not objectified and ogled over their looks. Read More
