Sounds like somebody's Manafarked.

And it couldn't happen to a more Lurch-looking motherfarker.

If it's bad for Paul Manafort it's good for America.  This is good news.

I get the feeling the last supporting jenga block is going to be removed soon.  Like the music is building to a climax.  You know what I want for Christmas, Mueller, and it's okay to deliver early.

The best day will be the day Tiffany Trump willingly testifies. Not even for a plea deal, not even because she's been charged. Just because "fark you"

"The criminal investigation into Yohai by the DOJ and Los Angeles U.S. attorney's office is separate from the probe into Manafort by special counsel Robert Mueller."

that was supposed to be in regards to tiffany.  Reply fail!

And there are stories implying that Flynn is worried about his son's legal exposure and might be inclined to cooperate in order to protect him.

Manafort vs. Boyafort. I'm waiting for Ex-Wifeafort to make her entrance.

Was gonna say: if he's married to that daughter let's just say no love is lost here.
 
2017-11-09 04:06:22 PM  
Cool but my impression is they are not really suffering from a lack of evidence when it comes to Manafort.
 
2017-11-09 04:06:30 PM  
Last week, feds start earmarking Manafort's cash and property for asset forfeiture.
This week: Manafort Jr. wants a plea deal.

Funny how that works.
 
2017-11-09 04:08:41 PM  
Well that is going to be an awkward thanksgiving, might even get a little stabby.

If there's a plea deal involved, then I expect that it's in return for information they didn't have or couldn't prove before.

Yep.  The more evidence they have against him, the better chances they have of flipping him, making sure the charges stick, and/or making sure he can't get a pardon.

First we need the sacrificial Thanksgiving turkey - I suggest something by Jared.

Then the Christmas season can begin properly...

The implication in those stories is that Flynn Sr. was given a plea deal for a song that did not implicate anyone beyond the Patsy Twins: Cater Page and FlipGOPapopolous.

That's not good.  Not good at all.

It sounds like the rats are starting to leave the sinking ship.

What Ben Garrison's response to news of rats leaving a sinking ship might look like:

Does Garrison think Hillary still is a thing?

Oh, that's right, because they're not smart enough to see the /other/ big Democrats as anything below their monomania.

If Hillary just retires from public life, they'd still think she was controlling everything.

Prosecutors likely look at all the players, figure out income and assets, then pick out low man on the totem pole (read: poor and likely desperate), then work their way up.

How do figure Mueller would trade an NSA adviser with info on Trump for two low level flunkies?

For large groups, yes. The Feds not only like to have tons of evidence, but also co-conspirators to testify against the top. They won't just bury you in evidence and testimony, they will show you the avalanche and ask you if you can give them anything they might have missed. Act tough and they turn you into frozen wolverine dinner.

\fun fact: wolverines can smell dead animals buried in avalanches
\\the only parts left after they dig one up are most of the teeth and some jaw parts. Maybe a horn tip.
