FBI raided former Trump campaign manager's home in Russia probe

Recommended Posts

A top lawyer for President Trump slammed the special counsel’s office over the FBI raid of former campaign manager Paul Manafort’s Virginia home, accusing investigators of committing a “gross abuse of the judicial process” for the sake of “shock value” – and employing tactics normally seen “in Russia not America.”

Let's just say it's not normal for a lawyer defending so forcefully a man he does NOT represent.

I saw someone describing 45 as incurious. Great descriptor.... many other do apply however.

I like how Trump claims he doesn't know Manafort, and that he was only with the campaign for a brief period.

 

They've been friends for 30+ years, and Manafort owns a condo in Trump Tower.

Speaking of t.rump related financial crimes, 

For the one project where Trump's financial records are publicly available, the picture is of "extraordinary flimflammery"

 

 

 

 

As is usual with Maddaw, unnecessarily verbose, but worth the time so as to have a clear picture of how Trump operates.

 

And just to cleanse the Maddaw verbosity from your brain, a hilarious Colbert impression of Maddaw:

If by ''daddy '' , you refer to the orange clown , then like the overwhelmingly sane majority of the human race I certainly do have issues.

Some speculate that Manafort leaked the details of the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower (Hilary, Dirt, Russia) as a message to 45 that he was unhappy with being defenestrated, and that he could take down Don Jr., and Jared.

 

Love seeing them turn on each other.

 

Rats, sinking ship.

The world know 45 is a pathological LIAR. Anyone w/ a modicum of intelligence knows not to trust or basically listen to a liar - that rules out most Republicans.

Why not a pre-dawn raid on Flynn?  ....because he's top brass?  Probably because he's already turned 'state's witness.'  Even so, Flynn is likely hiding items important to the case.  Similarly: both Kushners, both Trump sons, and a score of others close to the Dufus in Chief.

Paul Manafort is toast — the FBI raid was just the beginning

 

  • "Mueller's team, for weeks, has been issuing subpoenas to global banks seeking transaction histories for accounts involving Manafort and his business interests."
  • "Investigators are trying to use Manafort's business associates, including his son-in-law and a Ukrainian oligarch, in order to turn up the heat on the former Trump aide in an effort to extract more information out of him."
  • "Federal prosecutors in New York have handed over the reins to Mueller's team on an investigation started earlier this year into money laundering allegations, where Manafort invested in New York real estate to clean up dirty money from Eastern Europe."

Week 12: Putting the Squeeze on Paul Manafort

 

"According to news reports this week, the special counsel  has hoovered up practically every document, receipt, international bank transaction, tax record and perhaps grocery list connected to Manafort that pertains to the Russia investigation."

 

"The Mueller stash includes the tax and financial documents seized in a July 26 FBI raid of Manafort’s Alexandria, Virginia, condominium, news of which surfaced in the Washington Post this week."

 

"Mueller got a head start in his probe by inheriting a Manafort money-laundering investigation launched by former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara."

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/08/12/paul-manafort-mueller-probe-swamp-diary-215479

 

It has been said, that by squeezing Manafort and scrutinizing his paper trail, it fits a model perfectly to nail the occupier of the White House.
