Korea isn't Russia

I think that the trumpster in the dumpster, out of pure desperation, is jinning up the North Korea thing.

Federal investigators sought cooperation from Paul Manafort’s son-in-law in an effort to increase pressure on President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, according to three people familiar with the probe.

Investigators approached Jeffrey Yohai, who has partnered in business deals with Manafort, earlier this summer, setting off “real waves” in Manafort’s orbit, one of these people said. Another of these people said investigators are trying to get “into Manafort’s head.”

You remember "PizzaGate."

Alex Jones apologized over the hoax.

But to trumpsters, it stuck! (And the press is helpless...)

Russia probe closing in: Why Trump should be panicking over the Manafort raid.

In short, what Trump keeps calling a “witch hunt” is now a fast-moving investigation, which has now convinced a federal judge that there is critical evidence that must be preserved. What is the white house press room telling us?

President Trump on Thursday sharply amplified his criticism of the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, raising the possibility that Mr. McConnell should relinquish his position if he cannot deliver on top legislative priorities.

Trump couldn’t have picked a dumber fight!

Attacking Mitch McConnell is the dumbest thing the president has done yet. And that’s saying quite a bit.” That’s how Michael Steel, former spokesman for ex-House speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), described President Trump’s attack on the Senate majority leader. Trump on Wednesday had taunted McConnell on Twitter for not delivering the votes for Trumpcare.

Poll: Trump finances fair game in Russia investigation

Seventy percent of Americans believe the federal investigation into Russia's efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election in the US should look into Trump's finances!
