President Trump has responded directly to the charges filed against former Campaign manager Manafort by special counsel Mueller.
"Sorry, but this is years ago, before Paul Manafort was part of the Trump campaign. But why aren't Crooked Hillary & the Dems the focus?????" Trump tweeted. "Also, there is NO COLLUSION!"
That said, Bloomberg has already pointed out that President Trump's claim that the charges pre-dated the campaign, is false:
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment alleges that Manafort and another former Trump campaign aide, Rick Gates, engaged in schemes to defraud banks and the U.S. government from 2008 to 2017. Manafort joined Trump’s campaign in March 2016 and resigned in August 2016.
Three of the criminal counts charged against Manafort and Gates cover activities through 2017 and another count includes activities through 2016, according to the 12-count indictment.
Finally, as Raul Ilargi Meijer points out so eloquently…
What’s more interesting to come out of this circus is the picture of Washington -all of it- as an absolute cesspool and shithole.
That these are the people, on either side of the aisle, that get to make the decisions is so worrisome it should make people think of leaving the country.
