So truth isn’t truth but anonymous sources which Trump says should never be believed can nonetheless exonerate him. Ok.

I agree that Trump is a Queens thug. He does not have the accent, but everything else fits.

He is not very good at it.

You can agree or disagree with Marcy Wheeler's conclusions in any given essay she writes; but she always provides a full plate of food for thought, often compacted into just a few paragraphs. There is a lot of interesting stuff in this one.
:snippity: MANAFORT GOT VERY LITTLE (THAT WE CAN SEE) FROM HIS PLEA DEAL
NB from the bottom of Marcy's essay:
As I disclosed July, I provided information to the FBI on issues related to the Mueller investigation, so I’m going to include disclosure statements on Mueller investigation posts from here on out. I will include the disclosure whether or not the stuff I shared with the FBI pertains to the subject of the post.

https://www.emptywheel.net/2018/09/14/t ... lers-case/

The comments on Marcy's blog are well-worth reading as well as the essays themselves. I could never make a comment over there; I would be drawn, quartered, and then hung out to dry for all to ridicule. Fogbowzers, especially our IAALs, are much gentler, for which I am grateful. :bighug:

I think they are like domestic abuse victims and suffer from Stockholm Syndrome. Once separated and having no contact with the adored controller, the scales gradually fall from their eyes as they see him distance himself from them and their own legal situation becomes very clear. In Manafort's case, his wife was his partner in one of the foreign lobbying entities putting her at risk for federal charges.

I'm going to take "Donald Trump Jr." as the next person to do the indictiment/cooperation routine. If it happens I expect full bragging rights, if it doesn't, I expect my prediction to be forgotten. Please make a note of it.

FTR, I put myself through the entire hour of Maria Bartilomo's (sp?) show on Fox to see what was said about Manafort's plea and cooperation. Crickets. None of the Repubs she interviewed could say his name either, just all those wicked peeps at the DOJ and Clinton campaign and their evil doing.
