FBI In Action

The FBI executed a search warrant on Paul Manafort this morning.  The news story has pushed North Korea off the front page because the mainstream media cannot resist paying attention to the sideshow rather than the main attraction.

It's no big deal that the FBI searched his home.  It would only be a big deal if the agents found something.  But will they, or is this all for show?

Think about it.  Say what you want about Manafort, no one says he is stupid.  If he really has something to hide, do you really think he has it stashed under the bed at home?  The search is not a surprise.  In fact, the only thing that is surprising is that after supposedly investigating Russia (which includes Manafort's supposed ties to Russia), no one had searched until now.  Doubtless, Manafort has been expecting this visit for many months.  He had more than enough time to cleanse his home of anything that might be used against him.

Remember this:  Manafort was fired by Trump about a year ago, before the general election campaign had begun.  He has been the subject of investigation all that time, first in secret by Obama and then after the inauguration, by Congress and now the special prosecutor's office.  In all that time, nothing has been found.

My guess is that once again, nothing will be found.

It's all a colossal waste of time.
