Well, we knew he was going to do it, and now he is.

Paul Manafort met Monday with special counsel Robert Mueller’s office as part of his cooperation agreement in the special counsel’s investigation into Russia interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The sit-down at the special counsel’s downtown Washington D.C. office stems from Manafort’s guilty plea last month, which requires the former Trump campaign chairman to cooperate “fully, truthfully, completely, and forthrightly…in any and all matters as to which the government deems the cooperation relevant.”

Spokesmen for Manafort and Mueller declined comment on the meeting.

There have got to be a lot of things harshing Trump’s mellow right now, but having his one-time campaign manager spilling his guts to his most hated enemy must be pretty high on that list. 

Manafort has so many songs to sing, it is hard to imagine which selection the investigators will want to hear first. 

Could it be one about why the Trump campaign forced the RNC to change their position on Ukraine?

Or perhaps it is the one about what happened during the Trump Tower meeting and whether or not Trump knew about it.

Or maybe, just maybe Manafort could talk about the information that was shared when his lawyers and Trump’s lawyers had a joint-defense agreement, and whether there was any talk of a pardon. 

Like I said so many entertaining songs may issue forth from this particular canary.

    “It was not well received by some Republican leaders in Congress, including Mitch McConnell.”
    the former CIA director and the Republican senator got into a shouting argument over election security.
    “(McConnell) didn’t want that to come out publicly,”
    They’re trying to help elect Trump.”

    “Brennan setting in motion a series of private briefings with all congressional leaders,” Miller continued. “It is a crazy moment in our history. He’s trying to get their attention.”

    “He’s meeting with McConnell,” he said, “and McConnell is basically telling him, ‘You’re telling us that Russia is trying to help elect Trump, (but) if you come forward with this, I’m not going to sign on to any sort of public statement that would condemn Russian interference, but I will condemn you and the Obama administration for trying to mess up this election.’”

    OT?
    The US envoy to NATO said Tuesday that it might move to destroy Russian nuclear-capable missiles with military force if they don’t stop building the new weapons accused of violating a 1987 treaty.
    S ambassador to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison said she thought the US and Russia could find a diplomatic solution to the perceived treaty violation, but would use force if necessary.
    “At that point, we would be looking at the capability to take out a (Russian) missile that could hit any of our countries,”
    “Counter measures (by the US) would be to take out the missiles that are in development by Russia in violation of the treaty,” she added. “They are on notice.”

    Striking Russian missile facilities in Russia could very likely trigger war and would require a massive US military effort. Hutchinson may have been referring to “counter measures” in terms of missile defenses or the proposed development of new US weapons that would target Russia’s treaty-violating missiles.
    “We have been trying to send a message to Russia for several years that we know they are violating the treaty, we have shown Russia the evidence that we have that they are violating the treaty,”

    The documentary methodically reveals how an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election has grown to threaten Donald Trump’s presidency.
