Eshoo Statement on Manafort Guilty Verdict and Cohen Guilty Plea

August 22nd, 2018

Palo Alto, CA – Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA) released this statement following the conviction of Paul Manafort on multiple felony charges of tax and bank fraud, and the guilty plea by Michael Cohen of tax fraud, bank fraud and campaign finance violations:

“There are few comparable moments in our nation’s history to yesterday’s simultaneous conviction of the President’s former campaign Chairman Paul Manafort and the guilty plea of the President’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

“In the face of mounting criminal evidence against the President and his inner circle, the likelihood the President will interfere in the Special Counsel’s investigation to prevent more evidence from coming to light increases every day. Congress must move quickly to protect the Special Counsel from any obstruction so the American people get the full truth of Russia’s interference in our national election and any crimes the President may have committed.”
