And for this Afternoon’s Belly Laugh…

Paul Manafort, former Trump campaign chair and friend to Russian strongmen, has filed suit against Robert Mueller, Rob Rosentstein, and the Justice Department claiming that Mueller’s investigation is illegal.  Yep, that’s what they’re wasting time on today.

Understatement of the day comes from white collar crime attorney Sol Wisenberg, who told CNBC, “I think it’s going to be an uphill battle.  These kinds of things usually don’t prevail.”

Manafort has pulled out all the stops.  We’re popping popcorn right now.

 

Manafort Violates Terms of Bail; Mueller Backs Out of Deal

Apparently, Paul Manafort doesn’t understand just how much trouble he is in.  He’s been in contact with a Russian for a public relations effort, clearly in violation of the terms of his bail agreement.  Mueller has apparently backed out of the deal and wants Manafort back in court.

Here we go…

Where’s Manafort?

My friend Pam frets daily about Paul Manafort.  Where the hell is he, she wants to know.  She firmly believes that man is the key to something big.

I kinda dismissed it all because I am already overwhelmed with trying to figure this crap out.

Damn.

She might be right.

A purported cyberhack of the daughter of political consultant Paul Manafort suggests that he was the victim of a blackmail attempt while he was serving as Donald Trump’s presidential campaign chairman last summer.

The undated communications, which are allegedly from the iPhone of Manafort’s daughter, include a text that appears to come from a Ukrainian parliamentarian named Serhiy Leshchenko, seeking to reach her father, in which he claims to have politically damaging information about both Manafort and Trump.

Honey, this reads like a spy novel.
