Dear Senator Toomey:And I will be posting whatever response I get from him or his office.
It's me, again. Your constituent who also writes for the local Pittsburgh-based political blog, "2 Political Junkies."
As you already know, yesterday former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates surrendered to the FBI and both were charged with a number felony counts, among them money laundering and "Conspiracy against the United States of America."
The White House was quick to point out that none of it had anything to do with Donald Trump or his presidential campaign.
A few hours later, however, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller announced the guilty plea of Trump campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos on the charge of lying to the FBI regarding "the timing, extent, and nature of his relationships and interactions with certain foreign nationals whom he understood to have close connections with senior Russian government officials." Papadopoulos understood those officials to have "dirt" on Hilary Clinton. I don't know, but this looks like collusion to me.
In July you said that the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians was "overblown" adding that "most of us are not paying any attention."
Given the charges against Manafort and more importantly the guilty plea of Papadopoulos (who's reportedly cooperating with that "overblown" investigation), are you paying attention now? How does this effect your confidence in the Trump Administration? If it does, how much? If it doesn't, why not?
I await your response.
