Why shake things up when you are already winning?

I guess being accused of taking money from the Russians, can be a distraction to the campaign.

I don't know about the rest but that fluorescent green tie is reason enough.

In today's day and age and political climate did they really think that no one would check on the guy's background ??

Eh, who knows if it was a function of the Yankovich ties or whether the appointment of Bannon was the straw that broke the camel's back because it left Manafort powerless, or the fact that the polls are tanking and now was a good time to quit and get his fingerprints off the highly probably defeat in Nov and leave the blame with Bannon.

Likely true, he figured it was time to get off the Titanic, before it completely sinks.

Also they were talking convictable felony for not revealing his foreign ties so perhaps by quitting the campaign he can make that entire issue die.

Meh, the guy is a mercenary, mercenaries do their thing for whoever.

Failing to see eye to eye with Trump seems like a more likely explanation.

Personalities aside, swapping the head of your campaign apparatus twice in a month can't be condusive to organization.

The campaign has now revealed that Manafort was fired. Or "asked to resign" as the new campaign manager put it.

So why did they make such a big deal about how this wasn't a shakeup, but instead an expansion? Ok sure, we didn't believe it, but then they blow their cover story away a day later and admit he was fired.

It makes no sense.

It makes no sense, unless:

1) Manafort is in seriously deep shit
2) Making the firing, or the chaos around the firing, or "that wacky Trump campaign", the story of the week instead of Manafort, or his corrupt ties to oligarchs, or how directly his lobbying ties into Trump's foreign policy idea-sharts.
