  1. Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, agreed on Friday to cooperate with the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, as part of a deal in which he pleaded guilty to reduced charges stemming from consulting work he did for pro-Russia political forces in Ukraine.

    Appearing in United States District Court in Washington, Mr. Manafort entered guilty pleas on two conspiracy charges. Andrew Weissmann, the lead prosecutor, told Judge Amy Berman Jackson that there was a cooperation agreement with Mr. Manafort but provided no details.

    And can Donnie pardon his way out of this? Uh, |nope.|

    1. So here’s what Robert Mueller just did: He sewed up the key witness to implicate the President, and he paid for the entire investigation. And it’s only now lunch time.

      Tasty.

      1. So who's next – Stone, Junior, or Jared? I'm leaning for Stone or Junior as Jared is still working for the White House and perhaps gets a short political pass until Friday, November 9th.

    NEW: Manafort agreed to give up the Trump Tower apartment in order to avoid seizure of a Charles Schwab securities account. Baxter St apt will also sub, for Edgewood house in Arlington…per Mueller spokesman

    I think it would be an excellent place for a comfy facility where nice Hispanic refugee families get reunited with their illegally detained children.
