@JohnJHarwood longtime ally of Paul Manafort? Is that an actual thing?

@JohnJHarwood Spreading specious rumors is a form of subterfuge. Either you have a source you can name or you don’t.

@JohnJHarwood saw Manafort mailing it in during Melania speech incident: appeared disinterested & lackluster. There’s nothing in it for him

@JohnJHarwood I got the impression after Trump’s convention disaster that he’d resigned himself to losing. If so, he’d be uncontrollable.

@JohnJHarwood Amazing — Manafort built a career representing foreign dictators and authoritarians and Trump breaks his spirit

@JohnJHarwood This will be a colossal mess. Trump wants out. Who can the GOP put in? Tea party will object. Won’t agree. This is insane
