Here's the first time I brought it up:
Trump thinks/plans BIG.
Many people can't do that.
They FULLY EXPECTED Trump to be JUST AS CORRUPT if not even more so than the Obama admin.
Only as the months dragged on after Trump won, they ran into a PROBLEM.
They looked and looked, they spied and spied with increasing desperation as November 2016 turned into January 2017 turned into May 2017 [bye Comey!], etc.
"Hey, make Manafort my campaign manager! WHAT A GREAT IDEA! Yeah, I love it! Get him on the phone, tell him he's hired!"
Then Trump staked Manafort out in his yard like a goat for the wolves, then discared him.
Jared Kushner was **always** the real Trump campaign manager/top election strategist. Lewandowski, Manafort, then Conway were front people, PR handlers.
For two years as they got everything ready Trump & his team strung these dumbasses along.
