Robert Mueller picked up a huge win that Donald Trump is going to hate
Robert Mueller scored a big victory in his crusade to overthrow Donald Trump.
The special counsel forced former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort to plead guilty.
But the details of the agreement left jaws on the ground across America.
Manafort pleaded guilty to two felonies – conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to obstruct justice.
His plea deal also included a cooperation agreement.
This sent the fake news media into a frenzy.
Even though multiple investigations over two years have found no evidence of collusion, anti-Trump journalists clung to the hope Manafort could provide the smoking gun.
They focused in on the Trump Tower meeting attended by Manafort, Trump, Jr. and Jared Kushner.
They are hoping Manafort will make up a story so Mueller can charge Donald Trump, Jr. with lying to Congress about not telling Donald Trump about the meeting.
Remember that Manafort was 1 of 3 Trump senior officials in the room with the Russians at the Trump Tower meeting in June 2016.
And now he is cooperating with Mueller.

Trump’s legal team said earlier in the week they were not scared of a plea agreement.
They said Manafort has nothing on Trump.
But will Manafort make up a story to give Mueller what he wants?
At that point, it would be up to Mueller to decide who is telling the truth.
Trump supporters will be watching to see how this story unfolds.
