    This shoe may drop tomorrow while folks are discussing the election results in NY state.  Der Donald’s TV lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is downplaying the reports, according to the Thomson Reuters article, saying that his crackerjack legal team “is convinced” that Manafort won’t say anything damaging about Der Donald.  We shall have to wait to see whether the deal is just Manafort copping a guilty plea to avoid the time and expense of the second trial on other federal charges — conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and money laundering — or includes an agreement to cooperate with the Mueller investigation.
