Manafort guided by the FBI?

Manafort's spokesman says the former Trump campaign manager has received "guidance" from federal authorities.

Paul Manafort May Register as a Foreign Agent
by Tom Winter

A spokesman for Paul Manafort said the former Trump campaign manager has consulted with federal authorities about whether he should register as a foreign agent because of his past political work in Ukraine, and will now take "appropriate steps in response to the guidance."

Asked by NBC News whether that meant Manafort would be registering as a foreign agent, Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni would not say yes or no. He also could not say when the "appropriate steps" would be taken.

Maloni said that Manafort began talking to officials about the advisability of registering under the Foreign Agents Registration Act prior to the 2016 presidential election, and "received formal guidance recently from the authorities."

6. So, basically, federal authorities have enough evidence to prosecute

Just like Flynn, and most likely, just like Carter Page.

Now it's a cat and mouse game with Manafort about flipping over to the other side.

First, he'll retroactively register as a foreign agent. This is his stab at basic cooperation. Then, like Flynn, he's been turned as an asset.

Who's the big fish? Or is there a cesspool aquarium full of fish to catch?

Yes, purely my musings, but the twinkle in Rachel's eyes and the somber strains of Malcomb Nance have totally led me to this point.
