Special Counsel Robert Mueller seems to be exceeding all expectations in his prosecution, and not the investigation of President Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort. The heavy-handed approach against Manafort seems designed to intimidate and to find anything that can be used against him. By proxy, this will be an attack on President Trump as well.

One of the best developments for the Trump White House has been that with the arrival of competent managers and an experienced legal team, the flow of near-daily leaks and blabber about the investigation has trailed off.
Even as Trump was complaining about the media’s undeniable obsession with the Russia probe, he and his team were serving up near-daily doses of that powerful elixir.
