Wow, here’s an op-ed by former U.S attorney and deputy assistant Attorney Gen. Harry Litman in USA TODAY that never even mentions that the Manafort trial that started Tuesday has nothing to do with Trump’s campaign.  You would never know from reading this that Manafort’s trial or any of the other charges coming out of the special counsel are not related to that.  So, of course, the assumption will be that they are.  According to Litman, a guilty verdict against Manafort will make Trump’s witch-hunt claim “seem even weaker and more desperate.”  This piece is PART of the witch hunt!

Mueller is described here as “a fine GOP prosecutor.”  Litman quotes Judge Ellis on the possible sentence Manafort faces but conveniently does not share the one about prosecutors getting defendants to “sing” or “compose.”

Litman says, “It has been a mystery for many months why Manafort has steadfastly refused to cooperate with the Mueller probe, given the very high likelihood of conviction.”  Um, maybe because there isn’t any misconduct on Trump's part for him to disclose?  Maybe he’s not a very talented “composer.”


The fact that this person has been a U.S. attorney and deputy asst. AG is dismaying but not surprising --- perfectly consistent with what we’re finding out every day about “the swamp.”

    I think what we have learned during President Trump’s time in office is that his idea of draining the swamp has actually revealed that the swamp has turned into a very badly clogged cesspool! All those leftist groups are just adding to the clog at an unbelievable rate. They just can’t believe all us patriotic, USA Flag waving Americans aren’t listening to them anymore! We as conservatives have just gotten apathetic over the years because the choices in Washington had just been the lesser of two evils! We finally had a candidate that actually offered solutions and a plan to “Make America Great Again “. We just jumped at the chance to see if he would follow through on his aspirations. And he has! In spite of all the crazy accusations the losers and their mainstream media flunkies and all their Fake News stories have tried. Guess what! We ain’t buying it anymore. Get over yourselves or leave. All those celebrities who promised they’d leave the country if Trump got elected, are still here, I even offered to help them pack and drive them to the airport, but nobody took me up on my offer. I was so hopeful for a while. Once a liar, always a liar. OK, time to put on my MAGA hat and my Trump T-shirt and start celebrating the record Stock market, the lowest unemployment rates in decades, and the lowest unemployment rate for the black community, ever! Great job Mr. President!!!

    Well, at least this guy is a "has been" US Attorney and Dep AG. If more of his kind were "has been" the country would be better off.
