Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)

Today former Trump national security aide George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, as special counsel Robert Mueller produced the first concrete evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence. Papadopoulos was arrested on July 27, but his arrest was sealed so he could be an inside informant. Also, former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his protégé Rick Gates surrendered to the FBI and face multiple charges including money-laundering for Russian oligarchs and “conspiracy against the United States.” Of course the God-King claims that Manafort’s illegal activity was “years ago” and there is “NO COLLUSION,” but Papadopoulos’ guilty plea puts paid to that. Does this blow a gaping hole in the God-King’s “fake news” defense?
