I wonder if he has just said more than he intended, AGAIN! If there was no collusion, wouldn't they be spending all their time trying to find the nonexistent collusion. They'd only be spending their time trying to prove collusion if there was collusion.

It's almost like he thinks the FBI are staffed by about 20 people who are all investigating him rather than an agency with thousands of staff who can do loads of stuff all at the same time.

No, I think he honestly thinks that the entire FBI are just concerned with him.

Maybe this is adding to his Twitter meltdown:
Former Trump aide Rick Gates to plead guilty; agrees to testify against Manafort, sources say

A former top aide to Donald Trump's presidential campaign will plead guilty to fraud-related charges within days – and has made clear to prosecutors that he would testify against Paul J. Manafort Jr., the lawyer-lobbyist who once managed the campaign.

The change of heart by Trump's former deputy campaign manager, Richard W. Gates III, who had pleaded not guilty after being indicted in October on charges similar to Manafort's, was described in interviews by people familiar with the case.

"Rick Gates is going to change his plea to guilty,'' said a person with direct knowledge of the new developments, adding that the revised plea will be presented in federal court in Washington "within the next few days.''

That individual and others who discussed the matter spoke on condition of anonymity, citing a judge's gag order restricting comments about the case to the news media or public.

Gates' defense lawyer, Thomas C. Green, did not respond to messages left by phone and email. Peter Carr, a spokesman for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, declined on Saturday to comment.

Mueller is heading the prosecutions of Gates and Manafort as part of the wide-ranging investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and whether Trump or his aides committed crimes before, during or since the campaign.

The imminent change of Gates' plea follows negotiations over the last several weeks between Green and two of Mueller's prosecutors – senior assistant special counsels Andrew Weissmann and Greg D. Andres.

According to a person familiar with those talks, Gates, a longtime political consultant, can expect "a substantial reduction in his sentence'' if he fully cooperates with the investigation. He said that Gates is apt to serve about 18 months in prison.

Manafort is probably the Trump campaign's back-channel to Russia. They're trying to get him to flip.

Not the first person to describe religion that way. I dont get why it would even be a thing, if its a prayer then presumably you believe it goes directly to god, so why write it down? And then why give it to this guy? And then why would he go and give them to Trump? What is Trump supposed to do with them? Delivering a bag of prayers to the president of the United States, what a time we live in.

It's that kind of thing that the revolutionary war was supposed to break away from. I would be absolutely fascinated to know what the founding fathers would make of the direction the US has gone. To me it feels like the whole of Europe has progressed into a far freer and more mature culture than the US, in part because the constitution is now seen in a religious light, holding the country back.

It's incredible the difference between the US and the rest of "western civilisation".
