Federal prosecutors working for special counsel Robert Mueller on Saturday released a sentencing memo for former Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. But the memo did not follow Mueller’s past practices of including many details which could have shed light on who Manafort was conspiring with when he worked with Russia to help Donald Trump win the presidency in 2016.
The end may be near for Roger Stone, a longtime Donald Trump associate and presidential campaign adviser.
According to the Washington Post, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has asked the House Intelligence Committee to give him the transcript of its 2017 interview with Stone, which is “a sign that prosecutors could be moving to charge him with a crime.”
This new development occurs seventeen months after the launch of Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. The country has been waiting a long time for President Trump to speak to Mueller, and it appears we will finally be getting some answers to our questions.
Yesterday the news came fast and furious about Paul Manafort’s plea deal, against a backdrop of a major hurricane making landfall in North Carolina.
So much was going on that it was difficult to absorb it all. What does the plea deal mean? How might it affect such people as Donald Trump, Mike Pence, Donald Trump, Jr., Jared Kushner and even Ivanka Trump?
