Manafort cuts a deal with Mueller.

Definitely NOT a "nothing burger."

Though they may deny it, lots of liberals, progressives, & Democrats are afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome: they hate Trump and they're obsessed with hating Trump. In the most severe cases, victims of the affliction will do foolish, irrational things, like vote in primary elections or midterm elections.

State of New York 2014 primary election turnout: 574,350.
State of New York 2018 primary election turnout: 1,512,912.

Manafort cuts a deal with Mueller.


As recently as last night, there were skeptics in the media insisting that Manafort wouldn't possibly flip because his legal team had a joint defense agreement with Trump's legal team. In other words, Trump's lawyers were working and sharing confidential information with Manafort's lawyers.

Probably, but it's too early to know just how big a bombshell it is.

As usual, the greatest repository of insight & wisdom is Sean Hannity...

Tulsi Gabbard, Rep. Hawaii condemns Trump for supporting Al Queda in Idlib Syria. https://twitter.com/TulsiPress/status/1040363993951608835

Supporting AQ in Syria was McCains mission, until he croaked.

Not even Alan Dershowitz could spin today's developments as anything but bad news for Donald.

Saw him saying today is a win for Mueller.

Duh.

According to NPR, Paul Manafort’s deal
“does not include matters involving
the Trump campaign.”

NPR Politics

@nprpolitics
Paul Manafort's cooperation agreement with the special counsel does not include matters involving the Trump campaign, according to a person familiar with the case, @johnson_carrie reports

In other words, so far none of these
so-called flippers has flipped on Trump.
Manafort's plea deal IS bad for a few
others, though.

MORE BAD NEWS FOR PODESTA, MERCURY & SKADDEN: As part of MANAFORT’s plea deal, he agrees to testify before all grand juries in DC and "elsewhere.” The inquiries into @PodestaGroup, Mercury & @SkaddenArps are being run out of the Southern District of New York.

EvenBob shows up to spread some fake news! Who could’ve seen this coming?!

This is from the plea agreement:

Manafort “shall cooperate fully, truthfully, completely...with the Government...in any & all matters as to which the Government deems the cooperation relevant.”

No special cutout for the Trump campaign.

Keep spinning.

Meaning he'll tell them everything
he knows. You've deluded yourself
into thinking he has all the goods
on Trump's 'crimes', because that's
they way they worded it, to suck
all the TDS people in. They forgot
to include he probably knows
nothing at all that will damage
Trump. If he did, Mueller, who has
the leakiest investigation in history,
would have already leaked it.

This is so far divorced from reality it’s not even worth rebutting.

Time will tell. We're still waiting
for all the bombshells that Skanky
Daniels has on Trump. A few months
ago you'se guys were giggling the
end was near, Trump was a goner.

What's great is, all the TDS'ers are
ignoring the real story that's been
unfolding daily for a year and a
half, the complete corruption
of the entire justice dept under
Obama. I rarely mention it because
it's so huge, where do you start.
My job isn't to wise you up.
