As always, I can only guess.  There may be a "fight fire with fire" mentality kicking about now.

Trump's bullshit is believed by his followers partly due to FOX news and 700 club.

I feel some of his success is because he repeats his falsehoods, FOX does the same and Sanders follows suit.

The Democrats might feel they need to copy this as well as use profanity/grab him in the johnson mushroom type stuff.

So while this doesn't directly implicate Trump himself at this point, it is absolutely huge, it is evidence of direct cooperation between Russian Intelligence and the Trump campaign.

in court filings today, there was some faulty redaction in a filing by Manafort's legal team. Such superstars.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/legal-issues/paul-manafort-shared-2016-polling-data-with-russian-employee-according-to-court-filing/2019/01/08/3f562ad8-12b0-11e9-803c-4ef28312c8b9_story.html?utm_term=.98dd944a198a

Quote
The special counsel alleged Manafort “lied about sharing polling data with Mr. Kilimnik related to the 2016 presidential campaign,” according to the unredacted filing, and discussed Ukrainian politics with Kilimnik during that time.

“Manafort ‘conceded’ that he discussed or may have discussed a Ukraine peace plan with Mr. Kilimnik on more than one occasion,” his attorneys quote the special counsel as saying, and “’acknowledged’ that he and Mr. Kilimnik met while they were both in Madrid.”

In his filing, Manafort’s lawyers said any inconsistencies in those interviews were unintentional.

“Issues and communications related to Ukrainian political events simply were not at the forefront of Mr. Manafort’s mind during the period at issue and it is not surprising at all that Mr. Manafort was unable to recall specific details prior to having his recollection refreshed,” they wrote.

Konstantin Kilimnik is Manafort's former employee in Ukraine and a "former" Russian GRU operative and associate of Oleg Deripaska, a Russian oligarch with close ties to Putin.

So Manafort gives polling data to Kilimnik. Polling data which would have been very helpful to the pro-Trump social media propaganda campaign in St Petersburg by Russian Intelligence. In turn Kilimnik talks to Manafort about a peace plan for Ukraine that favors Russia. Parts of which suddenly and mysteriously appear in the Republican Party Platform at the Republican National Convention.

Quid Pro Quo cooperation between Russian Intelligence and Trump's Campaign Chairman.

Additionally, while Manafort was supposed to be working with Mueller's team, he continued to work with the White House:

Mueller also said Manafort lied about contacting Trump administration officials after Trump took office. Manafort had told investigators he had no direct or indirect contact with White House officials since Trump’s inauguration, but Manafort had been in touch with officials as recently as the spring, according to the filing.

Manafort told a colleague in February — four months after he was indicted — that he was in contact with a senior administration official through that time, prosecutors said. And in a text message, he authorized another person to speak with a White House official on May 26, they alleged.

Don't get your hopes up too high that this will materialize into something.  He's the Teflon Don so far.

F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia

Following President Trump’s firing of James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, the bureau grew increasingly concerned about whether the president’s actions constituted anti-American activity.

Comical Trump Moment dujour.

It's as if a pedophile priest were calling the choirboy bad names. 


Oh, wait - it IS a Pedophile in Chief....casting aspersions on a reasonable law enforcement officer.

President Trump’s National Security Council asked the Pentagon to provide the White House with military options to strike Iran last year, generating concern at the Pentagon and State Department, current and former U.S. officials said.

“It definitely rattled people,” a former senior U.S. administration official said of the request. “People were shocked. It was mind-boggling how cavalier they were about hitting Iran.”

Once again, Trump is talking withdrawal from NATO.

"Gift of the century" to Russia according to US Admiral Stavridis. Former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO.

And the Minions still don't smell the cloying, decayed flesh smell of treason....   Good job, Minions!  (sarcasm moment...)
