Remember Donald Trump, our president? Remember when he was a small bit touchy about the bad FBI doing bad touches to his private wiretapp area? Well, he should say he is sorry, because the FBI definitely did not "wiretapp" him, they wiretapped his campaign manager, Paul Manafort, who literally took $10 million PER YEAR to “influence politics, business dealings and news coverage inside the United States, Europe and the former Soviet republics to benefit the Putin government,” just before he pulled Donald Trump out of his ass.


Just wanted to remind you who we're talking about.

Now, that Paul Manafort, it turns out, has been the focus of an FBI wiretap[p] since 2014. (So, sadly, Hillary Clinton's Deep State didn't set a bitch up; Trump didn't even begin his course of changing human history into a deep scorched pit until the end of 2015.) Manafort was under surveillance by the FBI because he was an unregistered agent of a foreign power (Putin, as noted above, plus so MANY other bloody tyrants!). The eavesdropping ended at an unknown time before Manafort and Trump teamed up, but then Donald Trump started gently laving Putin's penis, in public, every chance he got -- and the FBI started noticing an odd pattern of contacts between Manafort and Russian spies (no, really, Russian spies), so they started it up again, during the campaign, with a FISA court's order. And that one lasted until this year, after the election and after Trump took office, when both Trump's and Manafort's lawyers decided they did not want Paul Manafort to get wiretapped anymore, thank you, and so that was that.

The conversations between Manafort and Trump continued after the President took office, long after the FBI investigation into Manafort was publicly known, the sources told CNN. They went on until lawyers for the President and Manafort insisted that they stop, according to the sources.

It's unclear whether Trump himself was picked up on the surveillance.

Did Manafort enter into a conspiracy with Russia, CNN?

Some of the intelligence collected includes communications that sparked concerns among investigators that Manafort had encouraged the Russians to help with the campaign, according to three sources familiar with the investigation. Two of these sources, however, cautioned that the evidence is not conclusive.

It's almost as though, when the New York Times reported that the FBI saw no links between the Trump campaign and Russia, it was incorrect. Could that be right???

So there's a typical Monday night under the Trump regime. News breaks that the president's campaign manager was being wiretapped because he was an unregistered foreign agent, and we already know that this will be proof that the president -- whose campaign is under investigation for colluding with a hostile government that then totally coincidentally hacked into dozens of states' voting systems -- has been VINDICATED ARGLE DEEP STATE HUFF!!1!

That's cool though, cause somebody's going to jail.
