An explosive letter has been sent to Schiff's office claiming that Papadopoulos coordinated with Russians with Trump's knowledge in the weeks following the election. Authorities are taking the letter "very seriously"

The letter, dated November 19 and obtained last week by The Atlantic, was sent to Democratic Representative Adam Schiff’s office by an individual who claims to have been close to Papadopoulos in late 2016 and early 2017. The letter was brought to the attention of Schiff and House Intelligence Committee staff, according to an aide who requested anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation. The letter was also obtained by federal authorities, who are taking its claims “very seriously,” said two U.S. officials who also requested anonymity due to the sensitivities of the probe.

You're flipping out over an 'anonymous letter.'
Really? ;)

Schiff is the master at getting a camera in front of his face, but mostly everything he says amounts to a ginormous nothing burger.

It's not anonymous to Schiff or the authorities. Just to the press and the public.

The letter isn't anonymous. The Committee and law enforcement knows who it is. The Atlantic just isn't releasing the name.

This might be real, it might not. We'll find out soon enough.

Just as an aside, Papa fighting so hard to delay a 14 day stay in a Federal Pen and Manafort's apparent efforts to gain a pardon from Trump which will automatically doom him to State Charges for crimes for which he has basically surrendered really makes me wonder what these folks are using for brains. Does Manafort not understand how much nastier a State Pen would be when compared to a Federal Pen?

Frankly Manafort is such a crook and a liar now by his own admission that I suspect he just can't help himself regardless of how little sense this makes for him and how hard it is going to be for him to thread the needle to freedom or even life if the Russians get hold of him. He is beginning to take on the look of a rabid dog and we know what has to happen to rabid dogs.

This sounds strikingly familiar to the letters that were scattered around during the Kavanaugh hearings.

Name withheld at the request of the letter writer. Uncorroborated claims. Lie detector test. "...and had come forward now after seeing Papadopoulos “become increasingly hostile towards those who are investigating him and his associates.”

yawn...

Let me know when anyone learns some actual facts here.

The only thing I can think of is Manafort is protecting his family. What else does he have left?

If there is a letter,he probably wrote it himself.
