With Paul Manafort now being arrested along with his protégé Rick Gates by Robert Mueller, and indicted by a Grand Jury on 12 criminal counts (in particular conspiracy against United States and to launder money, tax/wire fraud etc.) thus potentially facing life in jail, we now have to ask the obvious question: why is Robert Mueller and his team leaking to the Clinton News Network? CNN announced on Friday that indictments/arrests are coming on Monday, and they're the sworn political enemies of President Trump.
The second point is this: after reading all the indictments, 31 pages, President Trump's name is not mentioned once. Most of the allegations against Manafort and his business associate go back years, way before he was the chairman of the Trump campaign for a couple of months. So, the breaking news is all about alleged financial crimes which go back 5-10 years, despite the fact everyone knew Manafort to be a sleazy lobbyist in DC,. There's nothing in there about Russia colluding with the Trump campaign, zero, nada, zilch, i.e. there's nothing in there about Mueller's investigation stated purpose. The whole thing at its core is about money laundering and embezzlement.
