Could Paul Manafort’s plea deal be bad news for Democrats?

September 15, 2018

  Leftists are gleeful at the news that Paul Manafort has reached a plea deal with Robert Mueller and will “flip” on Donald Trump. While this is understandable and should be cause for concern in the White House all might not be as it seems. NPR is reporting that Paul Manafort’s deal has nothing to do with the Trump campaign:

 

  Well, that is a bit of a letdown if you are a leftist who wants to see the President taken down. But of course you probably do not even realize this is the case because the media is routing just as hard against the President and for the most part is not reporting this little tidbit. (This one Tweet by NPR as the one exception)

  And then there is this story which states that a former member of Barack Obama’s White House might actually be in the cross hairs.

Federal prosecutors in New York are weighing criminal charges against former Obama White House counsel Greg Craig as part of an investigation into whether he failed to register as a foreign agent in a probe that is linked to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to sources familiar with the matter.

In addition, these sources said, prosecutors in the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York are considering taking action against powerhouse law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, where Craig was a partner during the activity under examination. Prosecutors are considering a civil settlement with the firm or a deferred prosecution agreement with Skadden, these sources said.

An attorney for Craig, who left the Skadden firm in April and who was White House counsel under President Barack Obama during the first year of that administration, said his client “was not required to register under the Foreign Agent Registration Act.” A spokeswoman for Skadden didn’t respond to a request for comment.

  And this news actually comes from CNN if you can believe it. Every once in awhile…

  That is an interesting turn of events in this story if it is true and suddenly things have taken a turn nobody foresaw. Of course Barack Obama’s defenders will quickly point out that Greg Craig only worked in Barack Obama’s White House for the first year of his administration and then was gone, but to these people I would like to ask: how long was Paul Manafort on Donald Trump’s campaign? That is what I thought, duration does  not matter…

    I’m thinking maybe this Podesta fella might even bear bigger fruit. He leads into the belly of the beast(s) – the Clintons as well. Either way, if I can just see one of the Dems get locked up and/or sing it will be worth the price of my popcorn as I keep sitting here waiting for justice to be served.

      I am right there with you. I just want to see one person from the last administration get what is coming to them. Hopefully it won’t just be a low level nobody we have never heard of.

    The voter’s perception is what counts the most and Manafort has been served up as a Trump operative by yours truly, the Americrat media. Surely this will cost the republicans in November . Job well done!
