Remember earlier how we told you to hold onto your butts? Hope you brought them. You’ll want to be sitting for this. The Paul Manafort indictment has been unsealed. This is the moment when we all go to our corners and spin this into saying what we wanted it to say all along.

I’m not going to pretend to understand all of this stuff. Also, I’m not particularly a big “Trump guy.” However this part seems important:
The indictment of Manafort and Gates is damning on their financial dealings, but it makes no mention of Trump, collusion or the campaign

So, wasn’t the whole point of this investigation to prove the Trump campaign allegedly “colluded” with the Russians? And that this is why he won in the first place?
In short, all the digging and investigating going on has yet to bring up anything damning against Trump himself. Meanwhile, over the past week, FBI Informant in Obama/Russian Uranium Scandal Cleared to Testify and Bombshell! FBI Uncovers Russian Nuclear Plot. Which Happened Under Obama, Hillary… happened. So again, that’s zero evidence against President Trump and… an inconvenient, metric ton of evidence against Hillary/Obama and their cronies.
President Trump’s interview with Hannity later (it wasn’t announced, but you know it’s coming) is gonna be lit!
