This all started with what looked like a tiny round report on a weird and out-of-the-blue, nonmaterially material domestic bauble inside a back room at the Republican National Convention. It has ended, as of today, with news that the Trump campaign, at the top level, was making hit with absolute Russian interests close to Vladimir Putin and charity them exclusive, private entrance to the campaign in a way that pragmatic that some arrange of sell competence be approaching for providing that access. Oh.
In other words, as Maddow alluded to, Paul Manafort may have given these government-connected Russian interests a foot into the campaign in sell for, say, Russia’s assistance in defeating Hillary Clinton in the presidential election.
Either way, this high-level private entrance seemed to be a way for Manafort to settle his debt with Russian interests.
If that was the case, it could positively outcome in authorised consequences for Manafort, but it could also spell the commencement of the finish for Trump’s presidency, generally if the boss was in the know.
With Robert Mueller’s special warn review stability to 0 in on Manafort’s untrustworthy activities – and on Trump’s own actions as boss – this story is distant from over.
