The Wall Street Journal reports that Paul Manafort attempted to negotiate a deal with Robert Mueller for his upcoming trial in Washington.
The negotiations fell apart, no one (except M&M) knows why.
This implies that Manafort does not have a sekrit pardon from Comrade Stupid, after all! Whoddathunkit! Just the hint that he might be negotiating a plea bargain with Mueller should push the mango-hued shitgibbon into a poo-flinging rage, so we got that to look forward to.
If Mueller already knows everything that Paulie-the-Python Coat has to offer, then this should be just another white-collar crime prosecution. Which, you know, also means that the secrets of Oleg Deripaska, the Russian oligarch who was paying Manafort for “his consulting” might be Amazon Prime’ing some nice polonium tea to his prison cell even as we write this.
500 Quatloos says that Manafort will take whatever plea bargain he can before the trial reaches the Jury Room.
