While the Manafort and Gates indictments are important, they may pail when compared to the Popadopoulos guilty plea. This is a foreign policy advisor to the Trump campaign who connects the campaign directly to the Russians. The fact that he pleaded guilty might indicate his willingness to cooperate and provide important information. This on top of the obvious incentive for Manafort and Gates to cooperate in order to reduce their potential punishment is a good start. Though today is important, it is just the beginning. This is a process that will take months to bear fruit and create the kind of pressure that will impact directly on the Trump Presidency. Until that time he will attempt to distance himself, obfuscate, deflect and deny. Be patient, our opportunity to celebrate the demise of the Trump Family Grifters will arrive in due time.
