Have you heard about the federal grand jury indictment against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates? If not, you really should check out Daily Kos, they had quite a bit on that this morning, and so does David Waldman on today’s KITM:
Those joyous bells ringing throughout your town aren’t church bells, they are everyone’s Twitter alerts going off. Paul Manafort is first out of the perp walk gate, and he is not turning out to be the bargain Donald Trump was hoping for. Paul is charged with “Conspiracy Against the United States”, which sounds pretty serious, but Trump warns all this might distract from Chappaquiddick… (Coming soon from those lefties in mass media, btw.) Lesser known, but with a funner name to say out loud, George Papadopoulos will be the one to remember as the Russian collusion arrests pile up. If Greg Dworkin was here he’d tell you the walls are closing in on Trump. Uranium One is not turning out to be the SOMETHING needed to distract you from this. Firing Robert Mueller would be an awful choice for distraction, so bad that we should plan on it.
Local handyman and former elder statesman John Boehner is unchained and has plenty of less formal indictments to issue.
Heroes are emerging in the account of the Niger attack, and loser Trump will have to admit that some day soon.
The high and mighty continue to fall as sexual harassment hushing up is not so in anymore, and quantitative vs qualitative considerations have become less relevant. It is less cool to be sex and drugs gonzo, unless you are a third shift Russian Troll, then go for it.
