5:17 pm
guilty to like to the fbi. arrestky medic kk kk kky ari me us. many say this is just the start. >> that's right everybody woke up wondering whether paul manafort and aid i goes were like this and this is a big deal although mostly for financial crimes that are separate from the separation of the campaign. the other indictment comes with a guilty plea, so you have a cooperating witness in mr. papadopoulous saying that he met with russians offering dirt on hillary clinton and also offering material trying to set up a secret putin/be trump meeting that never occurred and he lied. now he is cooperating. the obvious question being if he keeps cooperating, what will that lead to. >> and you mentioned manafort charged with things that happened well before there was even a trump campaign. so why does something like this come out in an investigation
5:18 pm
into rush shachb meddling sian 2016 question? >> a great question because bob mueller was put in charge of this to creates an independent way to look at crimes arising out of the 2016 campaign. but as a prosecutor, if he does find federal crimes, he is obligated to deal with them. and in addition, it is apparent from the indictment today that at least in the case of manafort, some of this was being investigated before bob mueller even took over. so we may be sighing what are essentially independent investigations that were all put under his umbrella and he is dealing with them. lastly, and we don't know yet, but it's always possible that the thread he begins pulling on, financial crimes alleged, ultimately does lead back to other things that could also be alleged regarding russia and the campaign. so i don't think we know whether those will combine or be treated as separate. >> this is almost tip of the iceberg stuff.
