This Confirms What I’m Hearing

The pre-dawn raid of Paul Manafort’s condo confirms what I have been hearing. Mueller’s investigators have moved beyond the President and his family to his campaign team. In fact, I continue to hear that the investigators and the grand jury are far more interested in Manafort, Carter Page, and Mike Flynn, than the Trump family.

This, of course, gives the Trump family some plausible deniability if it all pans out, though until the investigation concludes the black clouds will linger.

What would be funny is if this does not pan out like the left hopes. They have largely built their entire 2018 campaign around Russia stealing the election. If Manafort et al are rounded up for ancillary shenanigans and there is no proof of an electoral theft, there won’t be much of a message left for the left.
