"The Oct. 27 indictment showed that prosecutors had amassed substantial documentation to support their charges that Manafort and Gates -- who were colleagues in political consulting for about a decade ---- had engaged in a complex series of allegedly illegal transactions rooted in Ukraine. The indictment alleged that both men, who for years were unregistered agents of the Ukraine government, hid millions of dollars of Ukraine-based payments from U.S. authorities."

So the gist of this is that this has nothing to do with Russia.

And it's about to get even more interesting now that Gates has chosen to cooperate. Manafort's holdout make work against him if Gates takes him down. If Manafort goes down, you can expect him to start singing against Trump. Trump's amping up the attacks shows he's starting to get worried about how this is progressing.

Take another big bite of that nothing burger, and wash it down with salty tears. Drip, drip, drip.
