Manafort pled guilty and will cooperate with federal prosecutors

It finally happened — Paul Manafort flipped.

The former Trump campaign chair appeared in court in Washington on Friday and pleaded guilty to a reduced set of charges. And as part of his plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, prosecutors said, Manafort agreed to cooperate with the investigation.

It’s enormously important news for the Russia investigation. Many have long speculated that the special counsel’s main aim in charging Manafort with financial and lobbying crimes was to pressure him to “flip” — so he’d agree to provide information related to their true concern of whether the Trump campaign conspired with Russia to interfere with the election.

Now, it’s happened. And that should make President Donald Trump very nervous indeed.

What is so funny? At that point in time it was accurate. Then again, hindsight is something you have no problems using to make yourself look smart.

It's funny on multiple levels, pete. I'm particularly looking forward to Trump's next tweet about Brave Paul.

It took between four and five years into an investigation of Bill Clinton to only be able to prove that he lied under oath about banging a fat tramp. These can take time, and not always yield results. A billionaire criminal who was able to become president isn't going to be sloppy. You guys may get your wish of a full term, or even two full terms of the guy pretending to act like the drunk at the end of the bar so that the simple folks will vote for and support him. He isn't stupid. He actually should get a lot of credit for how well he played almost every Christian white in the country

Fooling these hayseed buffoons isn’t exactly rocket science.

Damn it. There are only two ways to try to talk with them. Either speak like they do, or just like Trump does when he has a camera on him as an example. Or talk down to them like the child minded people that they are

According to Politico Manafort's plea deal has nothing to do with Donald Trump.

I'll try not to. And maybe you can help me. I'm selfish enough to be a Trump Conservative. I just don't have the self pity. How can I go about learning that?
