The Swamp: One Year In

Now for a ride through the Trump Swamp.

No automatic alt text available.

Watch as the son of what some called the famous Billy Graham sits on international television and goes total heretic regarding Trump's life of sin. Graham himself offered, during the 9: 44-minute interview, a statement of Trump said he didn't do it and he stumbled through no comment on Trump's pornstar lover. This man is supposed to be a Christian reverend. Skip to the 4: 50-minute mark and watch the pastor lose his sermon. 

Let's visit for a minute with a former Manofrt employee.  

Riva Levinson, tells Ari Melber Manafort “always lacked a moral compass” and left her “traumatized, depressed, almost in mourning.”

As the lies roll, a 35 second fact-check.

Trump has been in office one year today. CBS News recently ran a piece with a presidential ranking from best to worst. Link

Who Is? (The Trump Swamp)

On a periodic basis, Now This Politics posts short videos regarding members of the Trump inner circle (and cabinet heads). For purpose of this post, I will refer to the video subjects as they should be labeled: The Swamp

While the following five-minute segments don't lend to watching in one setting I highly encourage viewing the segments with breaks in between. Maybe even viewing over a period of days, as the Trump Swamp is ugly and you may find the information in the segments nightmare inducing. 

We will visit with Who Is? from time to time and post additional vistas and exhibitions of the Trump Swamp.

The Trump Swamp

It seems the Special Counselor Mueller investigation is centering on Paul Manafort as a cancer within the Trump cabal. As of the last 36 hours, it seems the cancer may have a molecular core embed with the smell of "V" Putin and his subservient Russian oligarchs.

If you are one who follows US current events and the fiasco of Trump as US President, you may recall a comment from the carnival barking con man (president) in which he stated no deep knowledge of how he came to know Paul Manafort. A likely lie to join Trump's common behavior of lying over 90% of the time.  

As reporting of Mueller's investigation and stellar reporting from print journalist are baring out, Manafort could very well a cancerous entity strategically developed and insert by Russia's dictatorial president via a network of cronies and Eastern European strongman leaders.

In April of this year, the Daily Beast joined other media in reporting regarding Manafort and his Don Quixote-like appearance in US Politics.  An appearance which may have culminated from effective political intrigue and undercover politicking for some very unsavory post-Soviet Bloc leaders.

The Daily Beast (April 2017)
As detailed in a recent New York Times article, Manafort reached out to Trump with memos in February 2016, pitching himself as a professional who could help Trump’s operation. According to the Times report, Thomas J. Barrack Jr., a friend of Trump’s who went on to become the chairman of the Presidential Inaugural Committee, provided Trump with the Manafort memos. Trump subsequently requested a meeting with Manafort, according to the paper. 
That’s where Stone came in. 
“After Barrack brought Paul to the president, Trump called Stone for a recommendation and they had a long conversation,” one former Trump campaign official told The Daily Beast. “Paul’s offer came soon after.”
If The Daily Beast piece is accurate, Trump feigning "unaware" of how 
Manafort came to his cabal is patently false (and indicative of Trump's inner psyche).

Last night, The Rachel Maddow show, and the top MSNBC host delivered a compelling prospect regrading Manafort and his entry into what we now know as Trumpism.

If you are a liberal or moderate TV news viewer you may very well have watched the Maddow segment. If you missed the segments and consider yourself an informed citizen of this nation, you may be on a wrong path to conservative authoritarianism..and worse.

Maddow (three segments; first segment runs 24 seconds). 

Of all names bantered around regarding Trump and what seems election tampering from Russia, it is a bit perplexing not to see and hear more about Roger Stone.

Trump during the 2016 campaign frequent used a strategic moniker of "Drain the Swamp." Is it possible for rational Americans to avoid consideration of Trump and his cabal as the swamp?
