Wait... isn't that Steve Bannon? With a haircut?

Why do all of these motherfarkers look alike? Is that just what generic white guys look like? Do I look like that and nobody told me? shiat.

I don't know but I'm pretty sure the next distraction is to nuke North Korea.

Fake news.

No raid. No raid. You're the raid.
 
2017-08-09 10:46:12 AM  
Was that the same day the FBI raided the offices of the local GOP and took boxes? I need coffee. Is Manafort cooperating now or does no one know?
haha so many questions...

Sad
 
2017-08-09 10:46:39 AM  
Mueller's team has some pretty damn good opsec if this is just now coming out.

Still, you'd think the media would have had someone watching Manafort's place like a hawk for raids.

/still think Manafort is too smart to actually keep anything incriminating in his damn house
 
2017-08-09 10:46:46 AM  
Did they bust his door down with a battering ram and shoot his dog?  I hear that's what they normally do with regular people.

I honestly have no idea anymore. Which is a shame. I've been able to keep up Game of Thrones, but this! I'm stumped. I'm going to back to intense day drinking while the country crumbles.

Dammit!!  I submitted the WaPo link.  :)

The FBI were simply looking for supplies to make grilled nothingburgers at their annual back-to-school cookout for their families.

It's probably that the FBi doesn't just announce these things.  I guess there is no leak problem at the FBI.
 
2017-08-09 10:47:43 AM  
Home is where you hang your hat.
Paul Manafort does not wear hats.
Hence, Paul Manafort does not have a home.

FAKE NEWS!

In other news, I guess this is why we are playing nuclear holocaust chicken with North Korea.
 
2017-08-09 10:48:05 AM  
We're just finding out now? DAMN, Mueller runs a tight operation.

See, that's what happens when you hire competent professionals, treat them with respect and professionalism, and as their leader don't act like a lazy, stupid, unhinged grifter who threatens the viability and/or core mission of the organization itself.
 
2017-08-09 10:48:10 AM  
It was July 26 to be exact. Just a little over two weeks ago and coinciding with Trump's latest round of rage tweets about "fake news". Oh, it's happening, there is no way that a weasel like Manafort is not singing like a bird right now to save his own ass. The. Best. People.

Yeah but how did neighbors not notice?  Was it some sort of low key stealth raid?

Dropped the transgender thing first thing that AM, then slammed Sessions and did his "We worship god" tweet.

Manafort was already "cooperating". He had already been interviewed by the FBI and turned over documents. -After- that, the FBI decided Manafort was withholding evidence and a judge agreed that the only way to get that evidence was a pre-dawn raid.
 
2017-08-09 10:48:39 AM  
To the people that believe the Russia thing is a hoax, all of these stories reinforce their view that all liberals are enraged and insane.  ( because Fox tells them this everyday )  so it reinforces their 'fake news' delusions and makes it that much harder for actual journalists to reach them.

I'd love nothing more than a complete media blackout until Mueller is done.  The information Trickle is not helping.

The GOP office raid was in May if you're talking about the fundraising office.

A few hours after the raid Trump tweeted:

Why didn't A.G. Sessions replace Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a Comey friend who was in charge of Clinton investigation but got....

Reminder: Paul Manafort had shell companies set up to buy real property with cash, transfered it directly into his name, at which point he took out mortgages against the value of the properties. At the same time he was in 8 figures of debt to Eastern European oligarchs he had been working with to elect Putin-friendly parties a decade earlier.

And he was doing all this while working for Trump pro bono.

I've seen how you hide important incriminating evidence. You put it into a steam pipe in an abandoned warehouse or factory. If the FBI found spit, Manafort's a dope. He'd had -- what? -- 9 months lead time to scour the place.  "No, don't you get rid of evidence, Paul, we're going to come looking one day."

If FOX broadcasts this news, Trump will find out, and he's not going to like it.

That's when Trump consulted with his genitals and announced the trans military personnel ban, out of the blue .

Some of these guys left 6-7 figure jobs to join this investigation. Mueller convinced them to. They want "took down the president" on their resumes, and they are going to get it. There's no way this all comes to nothing.

I honestly love this investigation for things like this. You know Mueller is feeding Trump and his admin just enough information to infuriate them, but not enough to jeopardize their work.

You're assuming too much. People like Manafort, Trump et al are arrogant narcissists. They believe they CAN'T be caught.

I dunno about where you're from, but around where I live (think the Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia area) once men hit their late 40's, they start looking like Col. Sanders. It's really weird.

Pretty valid argument there...

I wonder if they think they can flip Manafort if they get enough dirt on him.

No, no, you've got it all wrong.

Home is what you use as collateral against 20 million dollars in loans the day you exit the Trump campaign.

Paul Manafort has several of those homes.
