Paul Manafort has been cooperating with the bogus Russia election meddling probe since day one. He has turned over hundreds of requested documents, and willingly met with Senate intelligence committee investigators. A day after that meeting the FBI conducted a highly unusual “no knock” raid of Mr. Manafort’s Virginia home. That is a literal break-down-the-door type of raid. It is both rare and highly aggressive, particularly in cases of the political kind.
The raid took place last month but is just now being reported on. Several of those same reports suggest the raid was initiated at the request of controversial Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Mueller, who has deep ties to the D.C. establishment, including a long friendship with ousted former FBI Director James Comey, has garnered a small army of investigators, (most of them Democrats) since being appointed to oversee the Russia probe.
Manafort was abruptly fired last summer from his position as the Trump campaign chairman after it was discovered he had business dealings with both Russian and Ukrainian interests. Since that time Manafort has remained relatively quiet even as Mueller closes in. Some think Meuller is hoping to sway Manafort to turn against the Trump White House, thus the use of such aggressive force during last month’s raid. Mueller might very well believe the raid will intimidate the longtime political operative.
Further reports suggest Manafort will be used as leverage against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Ah, but the intrigue doesn’t come close to ending there.
Some whispers indicate Mueller’s actual intent is to then utilize both Flynn and Manafort to make life very-very difficult for the Trump family itself – namely Donald Trump Jr.
You see, this “investigation” has little to do with facts and/or actual wrongdoing.
The Deep State/Establishment/Globalists had their worlds rocked by the Trump 2016 victory. Such things are not to be allowed – certainly not without significant punishment against those who would dare wage war against the status quo.
Donald Trump and his supporters are to be made examples of to ensure a “NEVER AGAIN” aftermath.
Make no mistake, members of the Trump family are now wondering if and when it will be their door that is getting kicked in. If that happens, POTUS Trump’s enemies likely believe that will finally be enough to permanently break him.
And what of Mr. Trump’s millions of supporters? The Deep State and its Mainstream Media cabal are confident they might whine and cry for a while, but in the end, they’ll sit down and shut up.
Perhaps they’re right.
