Two days after this
hit, Paul Manafort has officially resigned from the Trump campaign
. Given the likelihood that the guy broke the law regarding foreign agents, one wonders why he took on such a high-profile job in the first place. The guy said: "Hey, world -- look at me!" And the world did just that. Had he never worked for Trump in an official capacity, he would not now be fretting about an indictment.
Unfortunately, Manafort will now serve as a convenient scapegoat for everything that went wrong in the Trump campaign. People will blame Paulie when they should blame Donnie.
