Open thread—PAULIE WALNUTS DONE FLIPPED!!
As I was gritting my teeth on the byways of Los Angeles, desperately needing to reach work in order to use the facilities, news broke that Paul Manafort not only agreed to a plea deal, but agreed to cooperate with Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III in his investigation of Trump / Russia.
This. Is. Big.
The one person we thought would never flip was Manafort, mostly because we thought he feared Putin’s assassins more than time in the pen. But, being 69 years old, it would be a death sentence any way you look at it. And as he had already been convicted on eight counts in his first trial, he was looking at even more convictions in the second, more serious trial. If he’s going to die, it seems he’d rather do it at home than in an 8’ by 10’ cell.
Manafort had private conversations with Trump. Manafort was in the infamous Trump Tower meeting. Manafort has details that his partner Rick Gates doesn’t.
Bobby Three Sticks by himself won’t save us. It will take an arisen citizenry to do that. But he’s doing his part. And today is a huge step in removing the cancer of Donald Trump.
Have heart, citizens. We’re going to win.
