Put a pin in this—because we're going to learn that Trump's Ukraine plot was jointly hatched between him and Manafort shortly after Trump was briefed by the intelligence community about the Steele dossier and became terrified his collusion would be caught

It's hilarious that some folks on the right don't realize this is still all about Russia

That's okay, just stay tuned

POLITICO, May 25, 2017

Someone get Priebus before Congress to give details on his January 2017 call with Manafort and knowledge of Manafort's other calls with Trump, because we're going to learn Trump's efforts to quash Manafort's legal troubles in Ukraine began not long after

Hey wouldn't it be CRAZY if Trump trying to quash Manafort's legal problems in Ukraine was a QUID PRO QUO for Manafort staying silent about Russia

CRAZY right

NEW YORK TIMES, May 2, 2018

A few months after Trump is forced to stop (or apparently stop) secretly talking to Manafort, he green-lights sending weapons to Ukraine Obama wouldn't send for fear of them falling into Russian hands; soon after, Ukraine stops investigating Manafort

NBC NEWS, January 30, 2018

As Trump's dangerous missile sale to Ukraine is pending—the one that convinces Ukraine to stop investigating Manafort—Trump secretly tells friends if Manafort "flips" he's totally screwed; good thing Trump was busy ending the Manafort probe in Ukraine

It's ALMOST like Trump REPEATEDLY used U.S. military aid to Ukraine as an illegal chit, first to tamper with Manafort as a witness, then in spring '19 to tamper with Mueller's probe by getting dirt on Clinton, then in July to tamper with the 2020 vote by trying to take down Biden

It's ALMOST like this whole thing is STILL about Russia
