When you’ve done your best to keep quiet, and it hasn’t done you any good, you ‘flip’.
That seems to be what happened to Paul Manafort. And he has to have something to say that’s worthwhile to Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 Presidential election, or he wouldn’t have agreed to a plea deal.
So, where does that leave 45: in the middle of the swamp, himself? He doesn’t seem to know how to pick ‘good’ people, although he calls everyone he fires, a ‘good person’.

As we have seen, this was always a bit suspicious. (The New York Times called it on August 14, 2016…)
I, for one, never dreamed Trump would get that far. But the American people decided otherwise (through their complicated Electoral College). Friends whose opinions I respect think that Hillary Clinton would have been a worse President. But that’s water under the bridge now.
I can only wonder what will happen next.
