Erick Erickson: It's Paul Manafort's indictment, not Trump's

  Erick Erickson: It's Paul Manafort's indictment, not Trump's Much of the political left is cheering about the indictment of Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort.  They think it will undermine President Trump. The problem, though, is that it appears increasingly likely that Manfort’s indictment has nothing to do with the Trump campaign.It is true that Robert Mueller began investigating Paul Manafort based on Manafort’s dealings with the Trump campaign and Russia. But the special prosecutor, like most prosecutors, can go in the direction an investigation takes him.

  Source who is being examined by special counsel: Former campaign officials under scrutiny may be rushing to cooperate with special counsel's investigationLess than a week after two top former Trump campaign officials were indicted and another adviser to the campaign had already pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, the pressure on others under scrutiny appears to be growing.  One source whose actions during the 2016 election are being examined by the special counsel's office and who is reluctant to talk publicly tells CBS News, "It's every man for himself.

Congratulations to Paul Molitor of the Twins and Torey Lovullo of the Diamondbacks on being named MLB 's Managers of the Year for 2017 ! Their 26-win turnaround was nothing short of epic, and Molitor deserves AL’s Manager of the Year Award for his role in getting them there.

Molitor, who was elected to the Hall of Fame as a player in 2004, is the second Hall of Famer to be named Manager of the Year. He beat the Indians' Terry Francona by 22 points. A.J. Hinch of the Astros was third with 56.

Ballots from two writers in each league city prior to postseason play are tabulated on a system that rewards five points for first place, three points for second place and one point for third place.

In his first season, Lovullo helped the D-backs improved by 24 games and make the playoffs for the first time since 2011. After a franchise-worst 5.09 ERA last season, the pitching staff turned out a franchise-best 3.67 mark in 2017. Lovullo was bold on the basepaths as Arizona ranked second in taking the extra base while making the fewest outs on the bases.
