Wednesday Open Thread | So, Little Paulie Manafort Thought That He Could Outsmart Bobby Three Sticks? LMAO!!

So…..we get the news that the Special Counsel has decided to cancel out Paulie Manafort’s plea deal…


Because Paulie thought that he could lie to Bobby Three Sticks.


Special counsel Robert Mueller said in a court filing Monday that Paul Manafort had breached his plea agreement by lying to investigators since signing the agreement.

After signing the plea agreement, Manafort committed federal crimes by lying to

the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Special Counsel’s Office on a variety of subject

matters, which constitute breaches of the agreement. The government will file a detailed

sentencing submission to the Probation Department and the Court in advance of sentencing that

sets forth the nature of the defendant’s crimes and lies, including those after signing the plea

agreement herein.

As the defendant has breached the plea agreement, there is no reason to delay his

sentencing herein.

Manafort still doesn’t get it. He doesn’t get that Robert Mueller, III, doesn’t ask questions that he doesn’t already have the answers to. ….been that way since the beginning.

Now…THE best part about all of this?

Yup. Mueller delayed this until after Trump handed in his open book test.

Releasing a list of the lies Manafort told provide another opportunity to tell a story. A report, if you will.

That’s right, Ladies and Gentlemen….Bobby Three Sticks delayed all of this UNTIL HE HAD DOLT45’S ANSWERS IN WRITING.


I can’t get past that. Cracks me up everytime I think about it.

A poster on BJ put it in crystal clear focus:

To make the point more explicit, Mueller has Trump’s answer to his questions. If Trump used some of Manfort’s lies, they are now Trump’s lies, and Mueller has them in writing.

And..that’s what you call perjury…..



And, then, we get more news yesterday….

Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort held secret talks with Julian Assange inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and visited around the time he joined Trump’s campaign, the Guardian has been told.

Sources have said Manafort went to see Assange in 2013, 2015 and in spring 2016 – during the period when he was made a key figure in Trump’s push for the White House.

It is unclear why Manafort wanted to see Assange and what was discussed. But the last meeting is likely to come under scrutiny and could interest Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor who is investigating alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

A well-placed source has told the Guardian that Manafort went to see Assange around March 2016. Months later WikiLeaks released a stash of Democratic emails stolen by Russian intelligence officers.

Manafort, 69, denies involvement in the hack and says the claim is “100% false”. His lawyers declined to answer the Guardian’s questions about the visits.


What could they possibly have to discuss?

Yikes. The extent to which Manafort has apparently never realized that Bob Mueller knows all is incredible. Third time he’s been caught lying by Mueller over this year.

Here is what I think about Manafort lying. Mueller knew he lied when he did. And he didn’t say so until today, AFTER Trump submitted his answers to Mueller. Which is why Trump just melted down

I guess Trump fell into that perjury trap after all.

It’s about to be on and popping!

What a time….what a time…

Keep your eyes focused people….they will create all sorts of distractions…but, the real deal is right there, in front of us.
