Whoever has the tivo remote please press fast forward. [View all]

During the July 2016 repub convention stuff started coming out on Manafort. When it first came out that Manafort had acted as a unregistered lobbyist for the disposed ruler in Ukraine I thought "Oh boy, going to see a perp walk soon". But not knowing how it works I was wrong. Finally started seeing reality come along and see it could take a long time. The Ukraine ledger entry listing Manafort as receiving payments. I thought that could be a hiccup in time since they would want to check the validity of that. But didn't really understand how long that could take. Or even if it was even actionable. His stepping down as campaign manager. Then the information about Manafort and the bank in Cyprus came out. I thought again getting closer.

Then in April when Rep. Mike Quigley went over there. I thought "okay they wouldn't be going over there and possibly stepping on any intel" if the FBI hadn't already been there. So it has to be near to seeing something happen in the public. At least in my mind but again a month later nothing confirmed. Bloomberg having a article saying "New York State has opened an investigation" yesterday. But nothing has been confirmed by any official.

Each time something like the above points in time have come out I get antsy and want to see something happening. But a end conclusion to even just the Manafort part could take a long time. Even when or if charges are brought (Possibility of a plea bargain, etc) any court date could be a long time off. How many charges and if any can or will be combined. All will be factors. Then add the length of a possible trial.

It sounds like multiple investigations of people associated with the campaign are going on concurrently. But no real confirmed info on the status of any other suspects in either collusion or other crimes like money laundering. So I am hoping they will come out like dominoes and fall in rapid succession. But that may not happen.

The main thing I take comfort in it being a drip drip is this may sink in to more peoples head that they need to gotv and vote democratic in 2018. Also all of this will help weaken dipshit and slow down or slow some of his and the repub's shit.
