    Papadopoulos only fell foul of the FBI because they questioned him repeatedly and he once gave a different answer. The answer did not affect the investigation one way or the other but it allowed the authorities to scream "Gotcha!" in a Stalinist kind of way.

    Manafort's charges had been dropped but were resurrected after Ukraine produced the "Black Ledger" with his supposed dealings listed. Many still believe that the ledger was fabricated but it did its job and was but one way that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 elections.

    Another way was the op ed in praise of Hillary that the Ukrainian ambassador wrote.

    It is not fair when Republicans get caught. Democrats are not supposed to expose the wrong doings of their political rivals. Everyone knows that truth and justice have a decidedly liberal slant.

    If they had worked trying to get Hillary elected rather than Trump they'd be sipping umbrella drinks on a beach somewhere .
