I hate being right about Trump. I predicted he'd get the nomination, and I predicted he'd become President. I predicted the vaunted "checks and balances" wouldn't stop him from doing whatever he felt like, because, as he has shown, that system depends on the President choosing to comply with it.
With Cohen and Manafort both guilty, pundits are heralding the impending downfall of Trump. I don't think any of this is going to hurt him at all, and I predict he'll be elected to a second term.
