Will Manafort Sing Like a Canary?
According to The New York Times former Trump campaign manager and associate, Paul Manafort, has been given notice by the Mueller team that he is going to be indicted. Indicted for what, who knows? Well, I assume Mueller's sleuths and Manafort know but the rest of us will have to wait.
Now it seems that the FBI was wiretapping Manafort both during the campaign and after Trump's triumph.
It's now also come out that, when the FBI raided Manafort's home while he slept, they didn't bang on the front door, they picked the lock and swarmed in. Now that's a curious thing for a guy of Manafort's wealth and stature. You might confuse Manafort with Al Capone.
So what's behind Robert Mueller's full court press on Manafort? The special counsel is probably pressuring Manafort to start talking about things they know he knows about.
Maybe if Trump can wrap things up early at the United Nations he'll have time to give Manafort the Arpaio Absolution.
