The liberal Left was all a “Twitter” on Monday about the indictment of Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump’s campaign manager for a short period, during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
However, the Left fell silent later in the day over news about Tony Podesta’s resignation.
Although, only two of the 12 counts (counts 11 and 12) against Manafort appear to relate to his role in the presidential campaign and claim he made false and misleading statements to the DOJ and others, none of the counts suggest there was any connection to Trump.
But that didn’t stop those on social media from name calling WH Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and accusing her of being a shill for Trump when she indicated numerous times during the briefing that the charges brought against Manafort had nothing to do with Trump.

“I will guarantee that anything coming out of Sarah Huckabee Sanders mouth today will be a complete lie. This is her moment to shine.”

Hallie Lyons personally attacked Sanders by tweeting: “Heard someone describe Sarah Huckabee Sanders as “the human embodiment of a fart.” Agree.”

In the afternoon, however, the Left became noticeably quiet.
Democratic lobbyist Tony Podesta (Tony) resigned from the Podesta Group, the firm he and his brother John Podesta started, once it was announced that special counsel Robert Mueller was investigating him.
Apparently, Tony caught Mueller’s attention after Mueller examined the finances of Paul Manafort.
Reportedly, The Podesta Group worked on a public relations campaign that Manafort created for the European Centre for Modern Ukraine. That campaign ran between 2012 and 2014, dates which are mentioned in the 12 count indictment filed against Manafort. The goal was reportedly to promote Ukraine in the U.S.
Podesta Group CEO Kimberley Fritts told sources that she and “a senior group of the Podesta team will be launching a new firm in the next one or two days,” a plan which sources say have been in the works for the past several months.
While the Left may have been silent about Tony, the Right took to Twitter to break their silence.
#ThePersistence tweeted: “Manafort worked w/Tony Podesta, Manafort arrested today, Tony steps down from Podesta Group today #TonyPodesta”

John Desantis said it best.: Paul Manafort is charged with crimes prior to campaign. Tony Podesta is under investigation. How exactly does that hurt Trump liberals?”

One could get used to making the Left “quiet”. Let’s hope there’s more on the horizon that continues this trend.
