Take away Manafort, and Trump isn't president. It's that simple. To wit:
Trump had sewn up enough delegates that the Republican nomination looked like a sure thing. Maybe it wasn't 50/50 that he’d win the White House that November, but it was possible.
Let me say it again: Paul Manafort stands accused of conspiring against his country.
Here's a shorter word for that: sedition. Here's another: treason.
He now wears two ankle bracelets.
HOW LONG IS IT?
So long, that if time moved in reverse, when he got out out of jail, the US would still be a British colony.
Take heart, folks. MANAFORT IS THE GUY.
