Melania Trump at the Republican Convention Update: Trump Staffer Meredith McIver Admits Fault

American Power Blog: Melania Trump accused of plagiarizing Michelle Obama's 2008 speech

Update: CNN: Manafort denies any plagiarism. There are lines that are word for word, which seems more than mere coincidence, but as plagiarism goes it is not that big a deal.

RedState: Plagiarized? We all know these speeches are written for the wives (as well as the candidates) so the blame probably goes to a speech writer and failure to double check it.  It's a bit embarrassing but if true, but staff should be fact checking (they have programs to do this now).

Jonah Goldberg: Mistake by the Lake 

Of course there were things in Melania's speech not in Michelle's:
