Sometimes, the best defense is a good offense.
Scratch that. Almost every time, the best defense is a good offense.
Take a current example: North Korea has been threatening to expand its nuclear program if the US doesn’t back down on sanctions. Under the usual lib mentality, we should back down.
Problem is, North Korea has always been expanding its nuclear program, no matter what we do. And Kim Jong-un has always been there, at the forefront, bragging about it. Except recently – he disappeared for a few weeks.
Right after, mind you, Trump went on the Twitter offensive. The best defense is a good offense.
So it’s no surprise that Paul Manafort, former Trump advisor and one of the guys under fire in Robert Mueller’s Russia Witch Hunt, just went on the offensive…and demanded that the DOJ release all documentation they have on him.
Manafort isn’t running away. He’s running right back towards Mueller.

The Daily Caller reports:
Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is calling on the Justice Department to release transcripts of any intercepted communications he may have had with foreigners.
Manafort, a longtime Republican political consultant, also called on the Justice Department’s inspector general to investigate the leak of details of secret surveillance warrants obtained by U.S. investigators.
The second of those two requests is gutsy enough – ‘tell me who is behind the leaks’ is a good way to deflect any attention you may get for doing something illegal.
But the first part? Even ballsier. ‘Show me what you have on me, because you have nothing.
‘Oh, and show the American people too. Let them see all of it, because you have nothing.’
“Mr. Manafort requests that the Department of Justice release any intercepts involving him and any non-Americans so interested parties can come to the same conclusion as the DOJ — there is nothing there,” Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni said in a statement.

Manafort isn’t usually this combative in the press. In fact, for most of his career, he’s been silent. Anything that makes him speak up is something that’s clearly made him angry.
I wouldn’t be worried if I were him. I’d be worried if I were Mueller.
