At a rally in West Virginia late Tuesday and on Twitter Wednesday, the president commended former campaign manager Paul Manafort, who was convicted in Virginia on fraud charges.

That raised the question of whether Cohen would cooperate, and, crucially, what his cooperation would be worth.
"Michael [Avenatti, her lawyer] and I are vindicated and we look forward to the apologies from the people who claimed we were wrong", she said. In fact, prosecutors could choose to re-try Manafort on those counts if they wished.
"There is no allegation of any wrongdoing against the President in the government's charges against Mr. Cohen", Giuliani said in a statement. Prosecutors say Cohen even got a $60,000 bonus for his work trying to keep these women quiet during the election.
It's not clear if Trump broke the law and legal experts say it would be hard to prove in court.

Manafort has another trial ahead, as well as a possible retrial for the ten counts for which the jury could not reach a consensus; Cohen is all but screaming that he has more to share. Now that Manafort will likely face serious jail time, will he?
He also tweeted: "Michael Cohen plead guilty to two counts of campaign finance violations that are not a crime".
