The indictments against Paul Manafortanafort by the special counsel are so telling. This was a man who owed money to someone that would gladly have him killed so he set up scheme after scheme to try to get the money he owed. He borrowed 16 million dollars from a bank that ostensibly only lends money to Veterans for home loans. Manafort is not a veteran. Yet he received alone which amounted to a quarter of the bank’s assets. Why would a bank do this? Well, the CEO of the bank was promised to be Secretary of the army. He was so sure that he was going to be Secretary of the army, he started calling to get briefings from the Army secretary’s office. He was not going to be Secretary of the army once again Manafort was being a grifter, just like the man he helped become president.
Attacking his Protege Rick Gates was unseemly. Rick Gates was trying to help Manafort but Hanafort like all other grifters is heartless. Manafort put out a statement saying how disappointed he was Enrique Gates. I’m sure we’re Gates has more disappointed in the person he looked up to and tried to help.
At the end of the day this 39 count indictment against this slimy man is meant to get him to flip on the present occupant of the White House. The special counsel is building a case just like one builds a house. Once you have the foundation you start putting the walls up and slowly but surely at the end of the day you will have a strong house or a strong case against the president.
