Target: Manafart

It could not be happening to a sleazier sphincter.  Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller has  Trump co-conspirator Paul Manafart by the genitals like a starvation-crazed pit-bull, and I could not be more pleased.  I expected Mueller do do this, but I did not expect it so quickly or with such vigor and tenacity.


Two stories that popped overnight suggest that special counsel Robert Mueller is aggressively pursuing Paul Manafort, the former chairman of President Trump’s campaign.

CNN reports that “U.S. investigators wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret court orders before and after the election”: “The government snooping continued into early this year, including a period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump. Some of the intelligence collected includes communications that sparked concerns among investigators that Manafort had encouraged the Russians to help with the campaign, according to three sources familiar with the investigation …

A secret order authorized by the court that handles the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) began after Manafort became the subject of an FBI investigation that began in 2014,” per Evan Perez, Shimon Prokupecz and Pamela Brown. “It centered on work done by a group of Washington consulting firms for Ukraine’s former ruling party … The surveillance was discontinued at some point last year for lack of evidence … The FBI then restarted the surveillance after obtaining a new FISA warrant that extended at least into early this year. … Sources say the second warrant was part of the FBI’s efforts to investigate ties between Trump campaign associates and suspected Russian operatives. Such warrants require the approval of top Justice Department and FBI officials, and the FBI must provide the court with information showing suspicion that the subject of the warrant may be acting as an agent of a foreign power.”…

The New York Times reports on its front page this morning that, after agents raided his home with a no-knock search warrant this summer, Mueller’s prosecutors told Manafort that they planned to indict him. The story says the feds decided to pick the lock on Manafort’s front door in Alexandria, Va., because they feared he might try to destroy evidence: “They took binders stuffed with documents and copied his computer files, looking for evidence that Mr. Manafort … set up secret offshore bank accounts. They even photographed the expensive suits in his closet.”… [emphasis original]

Rachel Maddow spent over 21 minutes sorting these out.

I have no doubt that Manafart knows where to find hundreds dump trucks full of dirt on the Fuhrer and on scores of his cronies.  He can either flip and tell all, or else two things will happen.  Pit-bull Mueller will turn him into a soprano, and he’ll be going away for a long, long time.  The Fuhrer won’t pardon him, because then he’d have to tell all.

So we’ll see what Manafart does.  Which Republican course will he take?  Is he a greater coward or a greater fool?

  1. You know, I do realize this is very serious, but I couldn’t help but laugh when I read “binders stuffed with documents.”  Is that better of worse than “binders full of women”?

    Projection.  We who pay attention are all quite aware that the Republican Party, and perhaps Donald John Drumpf to an advanced degree, are experts in projection.  We have remarked that to determine what to expect them to do, look at what they are accusing us of.

    I’ve seen a small resurgence of allegations that the Clintons have murdered people to keep them quiet.  Granted one was from PharmaBro, whom eben they, I think, realize is nuts, but that doesn’t mean he couldn’t give them ideas.

    So it occurs to me to wonder – is Paul Manafort under suicide watch?  (By which, of course, I mean “suicide” watch?)   Or do we have enough hard evidence that “suicide” watch is not considered necessary?  Was the object of the raid to get that hard evidence just in case?

  2. This is indeed wonderful news!!

  3. Slowly all the pieces of this many-layered and complex puzzle are falling into place and the first of Drumpf’s “Russia associates” is possibly going to be indicted, although it’s not yet clear whether Manafort is going down at this particular moment in time for wrongdoings connected to Ukraine or to Russia, but since it was Mueller was the one to tell Manfort to expect indictment, the latter is a safe bet. We’ll have to wait and see what those indictments are and what choices Manafort is going to make.

    One thing is clear, Drumpf, for all the bragging of how good a businessman he is, has shown the same terrible choice of associates to surround himself with during his campaign as he did later on with his choice of White House advisors and administration, and continues making when replacing all those he’s fired until now. Anyone willing to brown-nose, kiss Drumpf’s feet and/or sing his praise got a job and Drumpf’s ear. In those choices Drumpf has shown both a total lack of insight in human character and a complete disregard for what the office of president and all offices associated with the presidency stand for. Now these terrible choices, which any mafia boss would be ashamed of, are coming to bite him in the ass. 28. Let’s hope Mueller makes haste with all the indictments before Drumpf makes any more irreversible mistakes.

  4. Be still my heart!  

  5. Mueller is starting to let info leak, so it may be getting close to the end of the waiting game on who’s gonna get some papers filed on them and who AIN’T! Comey must not have flipped. Or if he did, it wasn’t as much as they wanted. Needed more on Drumpfenfarten to seal the deal for impeachment AND jail time? It cannot happen soon enough for me!

  6. Drip! . . . Drip! . . . Drip! . . .  is starting to sound like a flood of biblical proportions!  I hope nobody knows how to build an ark except Mueller of course!

  7. The moment Trump falls & takes all his henchmen w/ him can NOT come soon enough … for me, for our country, for the WORLD!
