So does Manafort now think Trump won’t pardon him?

Or that Trump will be impeached and won’t be able to?

What’s changed?

Hard to know exactly.

I think these articles from the archives might provide some hints, though.

From October 2017 on Dreeben:
Mueller Tasks an Adviser With Getting Ahead of Pre-Emptive Pardons
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles ... ve-pardons

Profile on Andrew Weissman... history of high profile investigations with a specialty of flipping
Andrew Weissman, Mueller's Legal Pit Bull

Why you so hung up on that? Its coming, don't worry. And if it doesn't...well so what? Think Whitewater, think payback......its schadenfreude time, bro crack a cold one and enjoy the show. :rofl:

Not according to Page, Strzok, and Comey as of May...but yeah, I'm sure Trump-Russia collusion evidence will show up any day now.

Do have anything else from his past that might help explain why Manafort flipped?

Patience, grasshopper.....sit back and enjoy a beer for Mueller Time, watch the master at work...notice how he slowly constricts the options of the traitor?.....Trump is looking around with a concerned expression on his face wondering when Putin is going to ride in on his horse and carry the Donald off, saving him from the fate that awaits the crowd of felons he surrounded himself with.....and we haven't even got to the October Surprise yet! Relax and enjoy the greatest value your entertainment dollar has ever provided. It just keeps getting better..wait until the accountant cuts a deal...it will be positively fapworthy... :rofl:

I thought I read where he stated he wanted his family to have a good life and knew they would duck the bucks out of him. So he simply got it over without all the expense.

He had to admit to the crimes and accept the associated forfeitures that were mistrials in the first EDVA trial.

~$30,000,000 extra in forfeitures. Lost 4 properties, a life insurance property, and a bunch of bank accounts.


For a greedy political mercenary... really makes you wonder what his motivation to run a presidential campaign for free. :coffee:

So no mention of the FISA applications being declassified? Shocker. IG's FISA investigation must be coming out soon.

Not much noise from Comey lately either...hhmmm...

I said the same thing last week when it was announced that Manafort would be pleading guilty.

What would y'all like to discuss regarding the new declassification order?

Tell me again about how the Russians managed to elect Trump. That is what this is about, no? I'm all in favor of nailing whatever criminals we find during that investigation, even if none of the illegal behavior had anything to do with Russians stealing the 2016 election. I'm good with criminals being found out and punished. But you're being entirely disingenuous when you say fear and paranoia of the Russians and Russian intrigue (psst, that's what a Red Scare is) has nothing to do with this. #RedScare2016 #SkellysheadisinthesandaboutRedScare2016 #history
