Paul Manafort, former Trump campaign manager and alleged Russian mob fixer was mentioned today during the House Intel Committee hearing on possible Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Things just got more bizarre today, when White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer tried to mitigate damages from the hearing by saying Manafort played a “limited” role Trump’s 2016 campaign.

As Jim Jamitis pointed out earlier: HE WAS TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN MANAGER.

There is no way to describe that level of desperation and delusion. It’s just nutty.

A short time ago, Manafort released this statement:

The hearing isn’t over, but today has not been a good day for Team Trump.
