The AP, reprinted by TPM:
President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman is registering as a foreign agent. Paul Manafort’s spokesman says he was in talks with the government about registering before the 2016 election and is now “taking appropriate steps” in response to “formal guidance” from the government.
Oh, hey, how about that. Is that a retroactive registration? Was he a foreign agent during his time with Mr. Trump?
The news is slowly getting worse for so many in the Trump inner circle, and we’ve not yet heard from the FBI or either of the Congressional Intelligence committees. It’s going to get much, much worse.
You’ll know the wheels are coming off the clown car that is the Trump administration when Steve Bannon gets the boot. Keep watching. It’s not often a US administration falls apart so publicly.
And to re-affirm: no, I do not want this president to succeed. I want him to fail spectacularly. I want his entire arc, from his ride down the escalator to his meagerly-attended inauguration to the present day to serve as a warning to the not-too-bright; a signpost along the road of life saying dimwits fail at difficult tasks, no matter how much money and influence they throw around. Mr. Trump is checking the boxes, one by one. May the “filth,” as AG Jeff Sessions phrased it on another subject Tuesday, be washed out with him when Trump’s deeds are exposed.
