    Manafort Raid Rattled Trump's Inner Circle

    "The raid appears to be unusual since Manafort has repeatedly claimed he is cooperating," CNN host Anderson Cooper noted during his Wednesday night program.

    "We're learning about this development at the same time as the Trump team, two sources telling CNN, the news took them by surprise," the CNN host continued. "It was a clear signal that the investigation is going forward, and not necessarily with a light touch."


    Cooper added: "Once source says it -- quote -- rattled a few cages of the inner circle."

    I was surprised at the raid also because I thought he was cooperating, too.

    The only thing that surprised me is the fact that they managed to keep it quiet for so long.

    Pre-dawn raids do tend to have that effect.

    Don't you find it odd that Manafort was supposedly cooperating? Do you see why that would rattle other people in Trump's circle?

    Perhaps.

    But, I would think, that if the Feds, or even the local Fuzz, started "raiding" your neighbors, you might get a bit "nervous...."

    I know I would. Even though, I have nothing to hide.

    Feds did the surprise raid because they think Manafort did not turn over everything.

    The FBI does not say,BTW!we are going to raid you in the morning. They have reason to suspect.Apparently a Judge agreed. He signed on.

    Congress must write a law making it illegal for a president to pardon co-conspirators.
