Open thread—It's the season for treason
As if last night’s blockbuster news about Paul Manafort’s plea deal going bust wasn’t big enough, today more news breaks.
As I predicted last night, the dam is about to bust open. The idea among some quarters that Manafort violating his plea agreement was some great catastrophe for Robert Mueller’s case seems even more preposterous with this news.
The fact is that Mueller has all the information he needs. It’s always great to have more corroboration. But he doesn’t need it. The fact that he sent Manafort to the proverbial gallows proves this. And if you think Mueller was unaware of the details of this report long beforehand, then there’s a bridge for sale in Brooklyn just for you.
Hold on to your knickers, kids. November isn’t even over.
