Hey! I think I found it! Er, I found something. I'm not real sure what it is. I'm not sure Corey is, either.

Meanwhile,

Former Trump Aide Who Suggested Meeting With Russians Secretly Pleaded Guilty
A former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign admitted he worked with representatives of the Russian government during the campaign as he pleaded guilty in Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s probe into interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

George Papadopoulos, who had suggested that Donald Trump meet with top Russian leaders during the campaign, pleaded guilty on Oct. 5 to making false statements during an interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Papadopoulos is cooperating with Mueller’s probe, and his indictment lists an unidentified campaign supervisor who also was aware of contacts with the Russians.
Remember how candidate Trump said he was only going to hire the "best" people? The "best" at what?

Interesting tweet from Vicente Fox:

Vicente Fox Quesada‏ @VicenteFoxQue 57m
.@realDonaldTrump, the indictments show us, either: you were never in charge of your campaign or you naively thought it'd never get to you.

Is Don involved in this or is the whole mess a result of an amateur/entry-level individual (who isn't bright enough to understand that he is) being completely out of his league? :-k

A low level staffer in a volunteer postion was trying to get Trump to meet with Putin. That should be above his pay grade.

But did Don understand that? He was an amateur who hired a staff from Monster.com instead of through Washington or party connections. And he continues to demonstrate his cluelessness. I'm not looking to excuse anything he might or might not have done but I'm wondering if it might boil down, in part, to naivete.

An interesting take from Wired Magazine.

What the Papadopoulos Plea Says About Mueller's Next Moves
I wrote a guide earlier explaining how to think about the charges, including five rules for how federal investigations tend to unfold. But developments in the Papadopoulos and Manafort cases Monday—unique among perhaps all previous cases in the Justice Department—provide some corollaries for us to consider going forward.

Call them the “Mueller Rules,” governing what we now know about how Mueller will operate as special counsel:

1) Mueller will be comprehensive.
2) Mueller will be tenacious, using every tool in the toolbox.
3) There’s much more to come.
4) Mueller’s working multiple avenues at once.
5) Mueller’s running a leak-free ship—and he knows more than we think.

Corey Lewandowski went on some news outlet and blamed the FBI. Claiming the Feds should have warned the Trump campaign about Manafort.

I submit Trump set himself up for this by having no campaign operation and then transferring so much of his campaign operation into the White House.

A real presidential campaign would have a wall of lawyers and experts that could put an end to any Russian attempts to infiltrate the campaign. A real campaign would have also been run by professionals who would have cleaned out any pro-Putin elements in the organization and kept the candidate away from such a terrible idea as colluding with Russia.

Trump had no real campaign. Instead, he had a cult of amateurs who catered to his whims. Judging from Trump’s own remarks, he sees nothing wrong with colluding with Putin, and this culture of collusion followed Trump into his White House staff that is filled with some of the same people who were involved with the campaign.

Nothing to see... Manafort just ran the convention and he was a criminal before we hired him. Papadopoulos was just a "coffee" boy. No defense of their actions.

The Trump Administration is claiming he was a low level operative that Trump had never met.

Here he is at a meeting with someone claiming to have a great memory and one of the best brains.

I'm told this is very common with dementia patients.

All is not well in Trumpville.

President Trump blames son-in-law Jared Kushner for Mueller's widening probe
A seething President Trump is placing blame for the current state of the widening Russia investigation on his son-in-law Jared Kushner, according to a report on Wednesday.

As indictments were unsealed against former Trump campaign staff and special counsel Robert Mueller revealed on Monday that at least one ex-Trump campaign adviser has pleaded guilty to federal charges, Trump’s frustration with Kushner, currently has grown exponentially, Vanity Fair reported.

I'm not sure. I only know that he assured everyone he was only going to hire the best people.
