The misdeeds of two former aides for President Donald Trump lit up the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday.
The words “guilty” and “criminal” were projected above an entrance, along with “felons welcome here,” after a busy legal day that established ex-Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort and personal attorney Michael Cohen as serious lawbreakers.
American Bridge, a Democratic super PAC, and visual artist Robin Bell appear to have collaborated on the project.
Bell’s glowing handiwork, which has included calling Trump a pig and a racist, has illuminated the hotel on several occasions.
“One of the secrets to what we do and how we’ve been able to pull it off is that we’re transparent,” Bell told The Associated Press. “We’re not hiding anything.”
Earlier in the day, a jury convicted ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort of tax and bank fraud and former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to illegally interfering in the 2016 election at the behest of his client.
