President Donald Trump Remaining Silent on Paul Manafort

Donald Trump has yet to speak concerning the indictment of Paul Manafort.

President Donald Trump has given no statement yet concerning the indictment of former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who was charged with conspiracy against the United States on Monday morning as part of Robert Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 election.

Manafort, who was the second of three campaign chairmen for Trump’s successful bid for the White House, was indicted under seal on Friday. Rick Gates, an associate of Manafort’s as well as a campaign worker for Trump, was also indicted. Both names were released Monday morning.

Trump, however, has remained silent in terms of both releasing a statement and in terms of his social media presence. His Twitter feed, normally a source of the president’s thoughts, has remained mostly silent. He has posted twice on Twitter in the first 10 hours of Oct. 30, focusing on the Hillary Clinton dossier and a report on Fox and Friends, one of his preferred cable television programs.

CNN reported that lawyers are meeting with the president concerning the indictments, which could explain Trump’s silence. The silence has extended to the rest of the Trump family, as neither Donald Jr. nor Eric Trump has made any posts on Twitter this morning.

Ivanka Trump’s only post has been a birthday wish from her daughter celebrating her 36th birthday, a post that poked fun at a misunderstanding Ivanka had made on her Twitter account last year.

MR. PHEWTUS, what is your view of the recent Kevin Spacey revelation? And what will you be doing to ensure that those troubled by the alleged sexual assault of Actor Anthony Rapp (when he was 14!)… and for example, by Heavy.com Comment Logger, “Ms” Diedra!… are put at ease, and that Hollywood becomes a safe place for not only actors to work, but for CHILDREN to work?
.
Please!… no emails!… Jesus is Lord!
