    Upstairs at home, with the TV on, Trump fumes over Russia indictments

    President Trump woke before dawn on Monday and burrowed in at the White House residence to wait for the Russia bombshell he knew was coming.

    Separated from most of his West Wing staff — who fretted over why he was late getting to the Oval Office — Trump clicked on the television and spent the morning playing fuming media critic, legal analyst and crisis communications strategist, according to several people close to him.

    Initially, Trump felt vindicated. Though frustrated that the media were linking him to the indictment and tarnishing his presidency, he cheered that the charges against Manafort and his deputy, Rick Gates, were focused primarily on activities that began before his campaign. Trump tweeted at 10:28 a.m., “there is NO COLLUSION!”

    But the president’s celebration was short-lived. A few minutes later, court documents were unsealed showing that George Papadopoulos, an unpaid foreign policy adviser on Trump’s campaign, pleaded guilty to making a false statement to the FBI about his efforts to broker a relationship between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. The case provides the clearest evidence yet of links between Trump’s campaign and Russian officials.



    “The walls are closing in,” said one senior Republican in close contact with top staffers who spoke on the condition of anonymity to speak candidly. “Everyone is freaking out.”

    Sounds like that staffer, that Senator, the reporter, and you are having sexual fantasies? Maybe you should see a physiatrist????

    If I was at home watching my life be destroyed thru made up links to unpaid volunteer’s actions, I’d be upset too. Wasn’t Bernie upset about an unpaid volunteer of his shooting Republicans?

    He was Bob Dole’s mgr, and worked with Hillary in Ukraine. Yet he somehow ended up owing the Russians $17 million. Dude is a loser. Trump should have stayed away from him!

    Really. If I remember right Manofort was brought in to get the convention delegates in line which would make sense.....I guess.

    Q. Why wasn't anyone indicted for collusion?
    A. Because collusion isn't a crime!
