"A secret order authorized by the court that handles the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) began after Manafort became the subject of an FBI investigation that began in 2014."

The president can disclose warrant applications proving whether it’s true.

That's is correct. Put up or shut up.

There is cult of Trump’s most ardent supporters.

Trump has harnessed the emotional intensity from his base that is typical of a religious revival meeting complete with ritualized communal chants ("Lock her up!").

As the one-year anniversary of Trump's victory past, the zeal of his core followers is that of a full-fledged cult.

A "cult" is a deeply insular social group bound together by extreme devotion to a charismatic leader.

Trump’s cult formed around an individual whom they've elevated to near divine status.

The authority that a cult leader exercises comes from his self-ascribed role as the one true information source for his followers. Competing ideas and facts are just wrong; “fake news.”

Trump, of course, calls most media outlets "fake news." 60% of Trump supporters agree that the media are "the enemy" of people.

The cult leader has special knowledge. No matter how demonstrably false his pronouncements, they become, by definition, truth for his followers.

One of the ways a cult leader maintains his authority is by creating a siege mentality among his followers and presenting himself as the antidote.
In Trump's view, the country is a wasteland of empty factories "scattered like tombstones" and crime-ridden cities that are more dangerous than war zones. "Our military is a disaster. Our healthcare is a horror show."
And as Trump has often said, "I alone can fix it."

Trump confidant Roger Stone stated: Any attempt to remove the president from office, he said in August, would result in "a spasm of violence in this country, an insurrection like you've never seen."

Wait, ans see...
