On that day, protesters organized by the two groups showed up on Travis Street in downtown Houston, a scene that appeared on its face to be a protest and a counterprotest. Interactions between the two groups eventually escalated into confrontation and verbal attacks… Russians managed to pit Texans against each other for the bargain price of $200.
You’ve probably already heard about Manafort, but this could be an even bigger deal.
But sealed until Monday
