Donald Trump nearly started three world wars this weekend apparently to divert from probes into his ties with Russia, especially I imagine, any FBI probe into his Deutsche Bank and Cyprus Bank loans and bank transfers.
Trump has now hinted he could try to fire FBI Director James Comey in a sign of how desperate he is becoming as the noose tightens around his son in law and former campaign manager Paul Manafort.
Any attempt to fire Comey is going to spark a huge crisis and destroy Trump’s last shred of credibility.
Manafort’s lawyers have been in discussions with the Justice Department and he is expected to register as a foreign agent after bank documents emerged showing he was paid by the Ukraine.
The day Manafort resigned from the Trump campaign, he created a shell company that soon received $13 million in loans from two businesses with ties to Trump, including one that partners with a Ukrainian-born billionaire in what looks like a pay off.
