I heard rumor someone have been wiretap that this is the first confirmation. Wire tapping wood only matter if you still in contact with people in the Trump Administration or with Trump himself.

He was. The linked article says that the period Manafort was tapped was before and after the election. Trump and Manafort were in contact even after Trump took office.

Oh that's completely different. That would be manafort, or the New York attorney, but not Mueller.

I read the article twice to figure out how they tapped his Wii to spy.

NYT also reporting that prosecutors told Manafort they're planning to indict him.

Looks like Mueller is leaning on him to turn on The Donald. This is definitely going to be interesting to watch. I wonder if Trump has his pardon pen at the ready again

If this is from the state prosecutor then the president's pardon won't work.

Mueller has been made privy to all the wiretap conversations. Time will tell, but given Manaforts pro-Russia stance, and pro-profit stance, I would find it hard to believe that he did not "ask for help" from the Russians on the campaign. But I don't wish to jump to any conclusions, I am sure Mueller is being diligent and pursuing any leads that the wiretaps provide, aggressively.

And given the fact that Flynn was asking for immunity so early in the game, I suspect they will find something on him as well. There is no doubt that these two, are currently the DOJ's main (but not only) targets.

That's correct, Mueller is using state laws, not federal, to prosecute this case.

The President can pardon folks convicted from federal laws only.
