I don’t know about you, but ever since Trump was carried down that damned escalator in the emperor’s new clothes, I have been waiting for this day. Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager, has finally been indicted. More important though, Trump’s campaign is starting to feel the heat.
MAN! I’d feel really stupid this morning, if I supported Trump.
What was he thinking, to hire a campaign manager so drenched in illegal activity? If you are running for president, I would assume you would try to distance yourself from criminals. Then again, I have always suspected that Trump never intended to be president. If Trump would have lost, he would have started TrumpTV, and lived happily ever after. Hillary would have been in office. Look at how easy it was for him to make America hate Hillary. Imagine if he had his own media company and Hillary was in office?! Think of how huge those dollar signs would be! Why else would Trump have hired conservative media tycoons Steve Bannon and Roger Ailes
Trump definitely knew about Manafort’s Russian illegal laundering. I’m sure Trump chose him BECAUSE of this. No one helped Trump become president more than Russia. Manafort’s ties to Russia and Putin were definitely his biggest asset to Trump.
“Manafort used his hidden overseas wealth to enjoy a lavish lifestyle in the United States without paying taxes on that income,” the indictment reads.
“As part of the scheme, Manafort and Gates repeatedly provided false information to financial bookkeepers, tax accountants and legal counsel, among others,” the indictment reads.
I’m sure Trump has thought about pardoning Manafort. That would certainly be one way that Trump could escape the potential disaster Manafort’s indictment may bring. However, if Trump pardoned him, he would be committing the most impeachable offense in our nation’s history. Trump would be pardoning a possible criminal accomplice. Considering how furious Monica and Reverend Wright made Republicans, I can’t even fathom how they would react to that?!
Like all investigations, Mueller has his eye on the big fish. That would explain the unusual method in which Mueller announced the charges. He gave it a weekend, and said that on Monday someone will be indicted. I’m sure if Manafort started talking, he would have stayed in the clear.
Now that Manafort is indicted, they will all start talking. You’ll see, they will all go down like dominoes. Even as I write this, an hour after Manafort’s indictment, Trump’s ex-foreign policy adviser, George Papadopoulos pled guilty to lying to the FBI on October 3rd. As I stated in the beginning of this article, I have been waiting for this day for a long time. Simply because once one of them is busted, they will all fall like dominoes.
Right now, the only saving grace for them is to talk. As a result, Trump must be sweating balls. I don’t think they would last very long in the big house. Their only chance of bunking up with Bubba for the next couple of decades is if he can provide information that would secure an indictment for Trump.
No longer is it a question of IF Trump will be charged. Now, we need to ask WHEN.
