The Left warns that the Manafort/Gates indictments are only the beginning


What do the Mueller indictments say about President Donald Trump and collusion with the Russians? A roundup of editorials Tuesday takes a look at the issue.

Opinions from the Left:

1. Don't rush to judge Trump

From Bloomberg: Sure, the charges against Paul Manafort look bad, but in one sense, the president is correct – it’s not his problem. 

2. What the Russia-inquiry revelations tell us about Trump-campaign collusion

From The New Yorker: The Manafort/Rick Gates indictments and the George Papadopoulos plea agreement don’t point to collusion, but they do point to another problem.

3. ‘Uh, oh’ moment for Manafort, Trump

From the News and Observer: If you think the Manafort indictment is only a blemish on the Republic, think again. What it will lead to is a shining moment for this country.
