It looks like these Manafort charges are bullshit. These incidents have nothing to do with the campaign or Russia. These things occurred many, many years ago and it involved filling out forms wrong. The instances were not illegal. Manafort’s attorney says these things are crazy and that the charges will be dropped.
The question is why are they not investigating Hilliary and Mueller for the sale of yellow cake uranium to Russia.
It looks as if the deep state may have lost on this one. We will see.
