Boy is the Trump White House blowing up with a speed and velocity that almost makes the movie by that name seem boring.
“The arrest of President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort Monday and former Trump campaign official Rick Gates saddled the White House with a grave new political reality.
By taking one or more people into custody, a prospect first reported by CNN Friday, Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller ushers in a perilous time for the White House, reflecting the gravity of the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and alleged collusion by Trump’s associates.
The special counsel announced that Manafort and Gates have been indicted by a federal grand jury. The 12-count indictment is on “conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading FARA statements, false statements, and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts.”
If Trump is still the president by Christmas, it will be a holiday miracle.
