Not entirely. It allowed them to call Clinton "a rapist" when the tapes came out about Trump bragging about groping women. They just didn't realize they were paving the way to win what should have been an unwinnable election 18 years down the road.

In this particular instance, however, I would respectfully disagree. They kept his indictment and guilty plea under wraps for months for a reason. And that reason was to use him as a cooperating witness. There’d be no other reason to wait to reveal this guilty plea. They used him as much as they could for as long as they needed and then carefully let the cat out of the bag after Trump reacted to the Manafort news.

This is the first of many shoes dropping. Mueller is infallible thus far.
