6. Shining shoes for dictators is big business! Laundering their money is even bigger business.

Manafort was just the shoe shine boy, Trump ran the laundry.

2. Russia was playing the long game.

And it looks like Mueller is going to start at the beginning and move towards the present.

Hopefully in Mueller's sights are money laundering, trump kids, trump's real estate empire, direct action in this election.

This is Big Picture stuff.

7. Would be interesting to see

if Charles R. Black, Jr. was also involved, given his relationship with Manafort & Stone and his having been a lobbyist for some rough folks.

9. Manafort massaging GOP candidates since 1976

But I’m sure Faux News will paint him as a very minor, tertiary character who went off on his own.

Manafort's Indictment mentions year 2006 a lot:

38. From in or about and between 2006 and 2017, both dates being approximate and inclusive, in the District of Columbia and elsewhere, the defendants PAUL J. MANAFORT, JR., and RICHARD W. GATES III, together with others, knowingly and intentionally conspired to defraud the United States by impeding, impairing, obstructing, and defeating the lawful governmental functions of a government agency, namely the Department of Justice and the Department of the Treasury, and to commit offenses against the United States, to wit, the violations of law charged in Counts Three through Six and Ten through Twelve.

Donald is a big part of Manafort's indictment even though not mentioned by name!
