It was reported months ago that this indictment was imminent, and today it became a reality.

Paul Manafort is charged with laundering millions of dollars paid to him by pro-Russia Ukrainian politician Viktor Yanukovych, among others.

This is who Donald Trump hired to "Make America Great Again." Trump's relationship with Manafort goes back decades, and he's now in a position to cut a deal with prosecutors.

So what's on Trump's alleged mind this morning?

Report out that Obama Campaign paid $972,000 to Fusion GPS. The firm also got $12,400,000 (really?) from DNC. Nobody knows who OK'd!
