Yes I think Russia is being quite successful. Look at the division in the US, factor in Brexit and now Catalonia. Look at the division in Germany, France, Sweden... all over Europe. The right and left can't discuss anything. The right wing is living in an alternate reality thanks to right wing social media and news and a lot of that is stemming from Russia.


But you are attributing this all to Russia and I think that is absurd.

Brexit? Catalonia? You really think people are being whipped into a frenzy by russia over those issues?

Then I suppose we have to believe the reports that BLM and the dakota pipeline people are also playing in to russias hands.


Or....

People actually have grievances that they truely believe that has nothing to do with russian infleunce.




With Brexit, yes. There was quite a lot of dark money sloshing around, paying for pro-Brexit propaganda, much of which appears to have come from dodgy Russians.

There's enough of a stink that it at least deserves to be considered as a genuine possibility.

But, totally OT.

Yeah, but it's a bit ridiculous to dismiss everyone who doesn't agree with you as being mysteriously brainwashed by Russians.

Oh, I know I'm right, but that dude over there who disagrees with me? He would ... except RUSSIAN!

So, this is just an opinion from their reporter(s) in D.C.? I don't see anything in that link that has actual proof of that claim.

I'll have to wait until the actual indictment is released, but it wouldn't surprise me, as that seems to be the way that all of the breadcrumbs of info are leaning. But, again...wait and see, as this is too important to flippantly assume on my end.

Charge three looks pretty dam serious.

A unregistered Russian agent being in charge of the new Presidents election campaign.....

That would be my read of that.

Also fox on TV saying the charges are from before he was on the Trump campagin.

Right wing guy saying no big deal, left wing lady saying this is damning for trump.

Go figure.

Well, then perhaps Mueller is digging in the right direction.

Can't wait to see how they try to spin this into Trump. Looks like this has to do with shady business deals Manafort did years ago.

The poor #resistance, one disappointment after another.

BBC just said one of the charges is "Conspiracy against the United States".

Again alarm bells should be ringing when we are talking about a guy who was in charge of the now Presidents election campaign for 3 months.

Perhaps.

But especially if this is from 2012, remember, at the time that Mueller thinks Manafort was an unreguistered russian agent, he was working with the OPodesta group to influence Hillary.

So I guess we will see.

But if the accusations are true, the fact this guy was connected to both parties shows just how slimy Washington really is.

Full text of indictment at Newsweek?

I hate their page layout (it appears like a mobile site on my desktop screen), so I'm going to look for a better source, but in case anyone wants to look through that link...

Here, from the justice.gov. (I guess I could have clicked the link in the Newsweek article...)

Yep, this will be a case where you can't show outrage at one side without showing outrage at the other side, unless you're a hypocrite.

We're likely to see a lot of hypocrites.

Depends on when that was.

If the crimes and conspiracy were around the time of the money laundering, then Trump is not implicated as it was well before the election and campaign.

We simply don't know enough yet.

The problem is that the right wing does believe lots of false stories and narratives about groups such as BLM, made up crimes by Muslim immigrants all over Europe, Mexican immigrants in the US. Xenophobia is being groomed into hatred to the point alliances are falling apart.

Fact is that Manafort did things he shouldn't have at some point. He's likely not alone in DC. We all know this and people on all sides engage in dirty tricks. We also all know this.

The question is whom was he working with at the time the crimes were committed and how many knew he was engaged in dirty tricks? Were they complicit in helping him and how many will or should go down with him?
