AP: Manafort Had A Plan To Benefit The Putin Government

...basically by undermining democracy in former Soviet Republics.
   I'm not going to flip out. But there is no doubt about it whatsoever: an investigation must be initiated immediately. If the GOP drags its feet, I'm willing to start aiding and abetting the (shudder) Democrats again. If Republicans resist this, they need to be crushed politically. Or maybe a specifically anti-GOP / punish-the-Republicans-for-Trump-etc. organization needs to arise.
   I have no interest in presupposing guilt. But there is no justification whatsoever under the prevailing conditions for fighting a goddamn investigation. Resisting an investigation at this point is tantamount to a cover-up. So far as I'm concerned, blocking an investigation when there is prima facie evidence of a crime is not appreciably less-bad than blocking an investigation when you know that there was, in fact, a crime.
   I keep talking myself out of fully appreciating how  truly godawful the GOP is.

And then there's Junes... the guy that lets the Russians know about details of counter-espionage investigations as a side effect of attempting to 'vindicate' Trump on his claim of wiretapping. Getting recorded in a conversation with 'persons of interest' is the opposite of vindication, and it isn't wiretapping. The guy isn't just a partisan hack; he's a stupid partisan hack. He surely shouldn't be chair of any committee above the position of dogcatcher.
