Paul Manafort being ordered to jail is another sign that Mueller in ending Trump’s world.
As NBC’s Pete Williams pointed out the calculus has now changed for Manafort, “Does that change his thinking about his strategy so far which has been to aggressively fight the government’s case. Will this cause him to reconsider and begin to enter into plea negotiations? I can’t answer that question but its to be noted this does change the circumstances now. The charges were filed by Robert Mueller in October. They have been adding to this case bit by bit. The latest charge they added was one of the things that happened in this hearing today was he was arraigned on new charges of witness tampering. That’s what led the judge to revoke his bail saying he agreed when he was let out on bail that he wouldn’t violate any laws. Now he’s charged with violating witness tampering laws even though his lawyer said what he did didn’t amount to the kind of witness tampering that Mueller was talking about. I think that’s the question. Does it change his calculus on how to go forward.”

MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace, host of Deadline: White House, has had it with Donald Trump’s propaganda, and has reached a point of utter frustration, as a direct result of it, so much so that she refused to share with her viewers any more of the plethora of Tweets Trump spewed Friday morning regarding the Russian investigation.
If you’ve been reading our recent stories about Donald Trump Jr. you know that the noose is tightening around the president’s son and namesake. It is very possible that these stories have caused panic in the White House and they may be an explanation for some of the president’s increasingly erratic behavior.
During his Sunday madness tweet storm over the Russia investigation, Trump claimed that anyone who supports the Russia investigation is not a real American.
