Def= “malicious or smug pleasure taken in somebody else’s misfortune”.
Maybe I am an unpleasant person but I am enjoying the pleasure I feel when watching someone get caught out in their lying/cheating/fraudulent dealings and so on. And the moreso when they have made millionaire lifestyles by defrauding the citizens of Ukraine (Manafort), US voters (Manafort, Stone and Michael Cohen and now it seems Assange) plus about a dozen others recently interviewed/interrogated by Mueller’s expert lawyers.
I wish they used the Brit legal expression many yanks enjoy “they are helping us with our inquiries”.
So I say “raise your glasses” when another one bites the dust, have a glass of schadenfreude, drink deep, it is a fine flavour and god save my dark soul but I enjoy the taste of karmic justice.
