Manafort goes on trial today not for Russian collusion but for the laundering of cash
Mueller is banking that on squeezing him rather than prison his loyalty to
Trump will crash.
Two trials one in the Swamp
Where anti-Trump feelings among black jurors will tromp
The other in Virginia where Manafort may have a better chance
Trump does have something up his sleeve that may block a flip to advance
He has the power to grant a full and complete pardon and set him free
Trump values loyalty and although the pundits will on the fallout disagree
With Podesta getting immunity for the same crimes
Motive to get to Trump with a biased probe should eliminate risk of time
High stakes with the midterms in less than 100 days
Reds are hoping the good economic news will voters favorably sway
Blues with their new found socialist agenda will be hoping Blue Wave does not fade away.
