This would explain Trump’s World Wrestling-style theatrics over going to nuclear war with North Korea

Just released, a photo of the FBI gathering in front of the Manafort residence…

If Manafort hasn’t “flipped” by now, he will. Either, he’ll be wearing an orange jumpsuit somewhere in the Midwest.

Or Putin will be wearing his head as a hat.

It was just last night that a certain Putin fluffer was assuring us all that Mueller would exonerate Trump.

Normally I’d think that Manafort ditched, destroyed and lost any incriminating evidence long before the search warrant was executed, but then we’re talking about Trump people. They are always confounding in their stupidity.

“Obviously there’s been discussion of Paul Manafort, who played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time.”

Clearly, this is big news. FBI got a court to approve a warrant based on probable cause of a crime having been committed and that the target was not cooperative. Manafort’s spokesperson’s statement suggested it might not have been the first or only such raid.

It does not look like Manafort has cut a formal deal yet. He seems to be a key to unlock the espionage door. His big mistake might’ve been to let Junior into a meeting with key Russian agents. Junior’s attorney, Alan Futerfas, is known for representing people who rat out other people in a conspiracy. His last big case (2016) involved his representation of a son who outed the drug dealing father for running a drug operation out of the family pizza joint in Queens.

Wouldn’t Trump tell his son to throw Manafort under the bus? He has no close connection to them except that he came recommended by friends of Putin to the campaign. What use does Putin have for Manafort any longer?

What use does Manafort have for Putin any longer?

The more ominous question for Manafort is what use does Putin have for him any longer?

One thing with Manafort, he is so well connected and experienced, he is a danger to a lot of people.

Ironically, Spicer lasted as long as press sec as Manafort did as campaign chairman.

Very limited role for a very limited time indeed.

Fake news. Didn’t happen.

If it did happen, it wasn’t bad. Just business deals and overzealous FBI.

Maybe colluding with Russia is bad but it’s not a big deal. Everyone colludes with foreign power and gets raided by the FBI.

It’s not Trump’s fault anyways. This was just the Trump campaign that colluded Russia. It was not the Trump person or Trump presidency.

If it was Trump’s fault, he didn’t mean it. He is new to this and doesn’t understand the rules.

It was a politically genius move to collude with Russia.

Hillary really did it. Obama really did it. Why is no one talking about Pelosi?


I think that covers everything I’ll hear for the next week.
