There are numerous conservative websites claiming the prosecution is getting its ass kicked. QAnon being one of them.

Here is another. Click at your own risk.

Gates and Manafort were indicted together. Gates admitted his guilt, Manafort is having his day in court. Anyway, that is at least one more criminal that was involved in the Trump campaign. My speculation is the Manafort case is the message to those in Trumps orbit to come clean.

Come clean and accept whatever plea arrangement they're offered. Or not, since Donald's going to pardon all of them, anyway. But IF Manafort's found guilty, the witness tampering pretty much assures that the judge won't show him any leniency on his sentence. On paper.

But I'd think that it would be in Donald's interest to encourage any future indictees to go as quietly as possible, pardons or not.

It seems likely that this is what Manafort's counting on, but I wonder what the political fallout would be if trump pardoned Manafort.

I think on my own. How funny, all the liberals have is, you listen to Hannity or Fox news. Mark my word, Manafort walks.

Ok, well then let me mention that this is only Manafort's first trial. He has another trial coming up in D.C.

I think people will find that one a lot more interesting.
