Can we all just appreciate that Manafort is getting fucked over, if only a little?

That's part of why this nation is O.D.-ing on Opioids. Overloaded with bad news from the overlords. Please just read one of those self help book instead of going that root.

I wonder if Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein thinks about the late former Deputy FBI Director Mark Felt's role in Watergate much these days.

There is a lot of Irony in this whole thing isn't there? Like that letter Trump got from Nixon in 1987 about running for POTUS someday.

No no no! Rosenstein is best positioned for that sort of thing.
Comey seems more like a John Dean figure.

I am surprised that Manafort didn't simply go for guilt and try to cut a deal to spite Trump, to be honest.
