Trump Rails at FBI in Morning Tweets: Manafort ‘Wouldn’t Have Been Hired’ if They’d Warned Me

President Trump on Sunday morning unleashed against the FBI and Justice Department again, and threw former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort under the bus while doing it, in two tweets already fueling speculation of a Manafort flip.

Paul Manafort has been charged in Robert Mueller‘s investigation and has been fighting back in court, suffering a big blow a few weeks ago when a judge ruled against him on a key issue.

In early May, Trump used Manafort as an example of how there is a “witch hunt” and said that Manafort was out there, “fighting fake news.”

Today the President has seemingly thrown the former campaign manager fully under the bus, though, saying he never would have hired him if the FBI and Justice (which he put in scare quotes) had warned him.

That fact was not lost on political Twitter.
