AGAIN.... with the collusion...collusion....collusion....How and why can activities by Paul Manafort and Rick Gates be connected to Donald Trump when these "activities" were before Trump decided to run for President ? ? ?

Mueller Is Gaining Steam. Should Trump Worry?

Donald J. Trump wearing a suit and tie: Allies of President Trump acknowledged that the investigation has taken a toll, as the recent indictments and guilty pleas suggest.

WASHINGTON — In a fiery speech to supporters on Friday, President Trump went after his vanquished opponent from 2016. “We had a crooked candidate,” he declared. The crowd responded with a signature chant from the campaign trail: “Lock her up!”
About three hours later and 10 miles to the north, Mr. Trump’s former deputy campaign chairman, who helped put him in the White House, arrived at a federal courthouse in Washington to plead guilty to being crooked and face the prospect that the authorities will now lock him up.
With each passing day, Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, seems to add another brick to the case he is building — one more indictment, one more interview, one more guilty plea. Mr. Trump and his advisers insist they are not worried because so far none of the charges implicate the president. Yet no one outside Mr. Mueller’s office knows for sure where he is heading and the flurry of recent action seems to be inexorably leading to a larger target
