The roach’s nest that is the Trump White House received terrible news yesterday with the bombshell revelation that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort has agreed to a plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller to avoid facing a trial over charges of conspiracy and failure to register as an agent of a foreign country.
While it’s as yet unclear what information Manafort will be handing over to Mueller, it could spell doom for the president and his cronies. Manafort had firsthand experience with the inner workings of the Trump campaign and even attended the now-infamous Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and surrogates of the Russian government.
Now, John Dean, who served as White House Counsel for President Richard Nixon, has weighed in on the Manafort news.
Dean took to Twitter to celebrate Manafort’s flipping and mock Trump’s claims that the Mueller probe is a witch hunt. He made a joke about “broomsticks breaking the sound barrier” as they crash to earth because there are no “witches” and the investigation is clearly legitimate.
Dean predicted that “the entire Trump family” is now in jeopardy and that Manafort will not receive a presidential pardon from Trump. He believes Manafort flipping spells the end of this administration and that “nightmares at the White House will be unending.”
Obviously, Dean knows a thing or two about failed presidencies, so his prognostication should be taken seriously. Hopefully, he proves to be correct and our nation is soon rid of the disastrous leadership its currently suffering under.
Manafort has flipped! BOOM (the sound of broomsticks breaking the sound barrier crashing to earth – NO witches). The entire Trump family now in jeopardy. No pardon for Paul from Trump. No nice things to say about Mansfort by Rudy. Nightmares at the White House will be unending.
