Like many of you, we have been spending our day with bleary eyes locked on the news regarding former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort. At the center of his federal indictment, released this morning, is a brownstone he owns at 377 Union Street in Carroll Gardens that is part of larger charges of money laundering.

Since the announcement, though, a curious thing has occurred: When you look up Manafort’s home on Google Maps, what you get is not the typical street view but a photo of President Trump in the Oval Office.
