A former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser has pleaded guilty to making a false statement to the FBI after he lied about his interactions with foreign officials close to the Russian government—the campaign’s clearest connection so far to Russia’s efforts to meddle in the 2016 election.

Kind of hard to claim that nothing happened when trump campaign people have already pled guilty to breaking the law in regards to illegal involvement with Russia.

trump’s days are numbered…

But it has absolutely nothing to do with the president.
Sarah Elizabeth Huckabee Sanders assures me there’s nothing to it.
Besides,
Hell FOX news hardly even aired the story, it must me fake news.    tongue wink

Question of the Day: Why Did Paul Manafort Agree to Become Trump’s Campaign Manager?

A Timeline of Paul Manafort’s Relationship with Donald Trump
They’ve known each other since the 1980s.

By Kate Brannen
http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/jurisprudence/2017/10/a_timeline_of_paul_manafort_s_relationship_with_the_trump_world.html

Now that special counsel Robert Mueller has indicted Paul Manafort, the former chairman of President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the White House has already begun to revive its efforts to distance itself from Manafort and play down the role he had on the campaign. But try as they might, the Trump team can’t change the facts. Manafort worked on the Trump campaign for five crucial months in 2016 and was its chairman from May through August 2016, when he resigned under pressure. Plus, the relationship between Trump and Manafort goes back much further.

When it started to become clear that Manafort was likely in serious legal jeopardy, the White House pushed the idea that his role on the campaign was minimal. ...

In typical juvenile delinquent fashion, get charged with something, change the subject, blame someone else, ...

This is how Republicans will try to distract you from Trump’s campaign manager being indicted
Look over there!
JUDD LEGUM - - OCT 30, 2017,
https://thinkprogress.org/trump-distract-robert-mueller-explained-807999089c9e/

The intensification of Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s potential collusion with Russia —
as the first indictments were handed down for President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former business associate Rick Gates —
has triggered an impassioned counter-narrative from the right. The reaction is seemingly coordinated,
with similar arguments against Mueller appearing in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Post, Fox News, and Trump’s Twitter feed.

It’s all nonsense.

The purpose of the narrative is not accuracy but distraction. It’s a series of complex, interlocking claims with little connection to reality.
But it’s the best the right can come up with to discredit Mueller and the outcome of his investigation.

You’ve got to love trump’s panic tweets how this is all a democratic witch hunt and someone needs to, “DO SOMETHING!”

They are doing something, Robert Mueller has caught a number of high profile trump people engaging in illegal activity in collusion with Russia. And the charges are good as they’ve already pleaded guilty meaning there isn’t going to be a trial.

So what trump is talking about is someone taking extra-judicial - illegal - action in response to the US legal system working as it’s supposed to.

That’s not something a legitimate US president would do. It is however the exact actions a traitor would take to protect themselves from prosecution.

And one of charges that trump’s former campaign manager has already pleaded guilty to is conspiracy against the US.

That’s treason…

Do something?

resign and hope you don’t go to prison for the rest of your life trump

we all know you deserve it…

Paul Manafort, Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos are arrested and Papadopoulus has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his attempts to get illegally obtained democratic party information from the Russian government.

And fox news features the proper place to put the cheese in the hamburger emoji.

And trump tweets about some uranium deal that has absolutely nothing to do with anything.

the republicans are going to get killed next year and they are going to deserve it, they placed a Russian agent in the White House. They can deny it all they want and pretend this isn’t happening but it is clear that Mueller unlike trump takes his job very seriously.

https://www.vox.com/world/2017/10/30/16570518/robert-mueller-paul-manafort-george-papadopoulos-strategy

Monday’s big Russia-related news shows that special counsel Robert Mueller is treating his probe into election collusion like a mob case — with President Donald Trump potentially playing the role of Al Capone.

Early on Monday morning, FBI agents took Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his aide Richard Gates into custody. The two men were indicted on charges of money laundering and illegal lobbying charges on behalf of Ukrainian leader Viktor Yanukovych (charges to which they pleaded not guilty). About two hours later, we learned that Trump foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos had pleaded guilty to charges of lying to the FBI. He admitted to lying, specifically, about meetings in which he discussed potentially colluding with Russian agents to acquire Hillary Clinton’s private emails.

Put together, the charges against the three men illustrate a clear pattern of using whatever charge you can stand up — even if it doesn’t directly relate to the Russian collusion — to build a case against anyone who was involved, with the ultimate goal of getting the lower-level people to testify against the bigger fish.

You’ve probably heard of this kind of approach in mob movies, but it’s also what real prosecutors do. Experts say that Mueller is adapting this playbook for the Russia investigation.

“The idea that he would go after the campaign manager of the Trump campaign is just extraordinary — it means he must have great confidence in the case against Manafort,” says Ryan Goodman, a former Department of Defense special counsel and editor of the legal publication Just Security. “It does compare to prosecutions of organized crime, with respect to going after someone who is legally exposed … and trying to flip them if they have the kind of information that could really break open the case.”

trump’s days are numbered…

A few things you’ve missed:

Manafort is being investigated for money laundering, tax evasion, and failure to register as a foreign agent for activities which occurred years before he worked for the 2016 campaign.  Notice how Trump himself isn’t implicated in any of that.

George Papadopoulos lied about having contacts with Russian figures who supposedly had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton; it seems the dirt either didn’t exist or it never changed hands, so its all legit . Again, notice how Trump himself is not implicated.

Media is too stupid to know what they’re talking about, they’re just hoping something will stick; and you’re too eager for revenge to see that Trump will not face any charges.

Looks like Paul Manafort’s visions of secret agent man backfired.
bond007    LOL

Beltrane you gotta take a look at that video it adds a lot of background you seem to be missing.  Here’s some written stuff you might find informative.

How D.C. Lobbyists Helped Paul Manafort Prop Up a Putin Puppet
For years, the influence-peddlers’ work for a pro-Kremlin party flew under the radar. Then Bob Mueller’s Trump-Russia probe got rolling.

Betsy Woodruff - 08.28.17
https://www.thedailybeast.com/how-dc-lobbyists-helped-paul-manafort-prop-up-a-putin-puppet

At issue is work that Manafort did for Viktor Yanukovych, a pro-Putin Ukrainian politician who was the country’s president from 2010 to 2014. Yanukovych fled the country to Russia after protesters overthrew his government. Vladimir Putin reportedly helped him escape. ...

To try to persuade Americans that Ukraine was moving in the right direction, the two lobbying firms undertook a public relations offensive—pitching journalists, meeting with Congressional staff, and introducing Yanukovych allies to top Washington power brokers.

The client paying the firms for that work was the European Center for Modern Ukraine. ECFMU told both firms it wasn’t backed by any political entities. But new reports indicate it had the support of Yanukovych’s party, the Party of Regions—which means the two lobbying firms should have disclosed their work for the group to the Justice Department. ...

Top Trump Aide Led the ‘Torturers’ Lobby’
BETSY WOODRUFF, TIM MAK - 04.13.16
https://www.thedailybeast.com/top-trump-aide-led-the-torturers-lobby

So when Manafort accused opponent Ted Cruz of using “gestapo tactics” to court Republican delegates on Meet the Press this past Sunday—it’s something he may have quite a bit of experience with firsthand.

Manafort was a principal at the lobbying firm Black, Manafort, Stone, and Kelly (along with another top Trump ally, Nixon alum Roger Stone), a K Street powerhouse with close ties to the Reagan and George H. W. Bush administrations, as well as top Republicans on Capitol Hill.

But over the years, they made millions by representing a rogue’s gallery of clients far away from D.C.’s genteel corridors of power: dictators, guerilla groups, and despots with no regard for human rights—including one man responsible for mass amputations, and another who oversaw state-sanctioned rape.

One such client was Jonas Savimbi, who led a guerilla army trying to wrest control of the Angolan government from Marxists during the country’s brutal civil war. Savimbi hired Manafort’s lobbying firm to help him get financial support from the U.S. government for his guerilla army, UNITA (National Union for the Total Independence of Angola).

And Manafort and co. delivered. ...

God bless her heart, Betsy Woodruff is on the job.  Today she’s come out with this beaut

Mueller Reveals New Manafort Link to Organized Crime
https://www.thedailybeast.com/mueller-reveals-new-manafort-link-to-organized-crime
Trump’s former campaign manager didn’t just do business with accused gangsters.
One of them transferred millions into a Manafort account, allegedly used for money laundering.

Buried deep in Robert Mueller’s indictment of Paul Manafort is a new link between Donald Trump’s former campaign and Russian organized crime.

The indictment (PDF), unsealed on Monday, includes an extensive look into Paul Manafort’s byzantine financial dealings.
In particular, it details how he used a company called Lucicle Consultants Limited to wire millions of dollars into the United States.

The Cyprus-based Lucicle Consultants Limited, in turn, reportedly received millions of dollars from a businessman and Ukrainian parliamentarian named Ivan Fursin,
who is closely linked to one of Russia’s most notorious criminals: Semion Mogilevich.

Mogilevich is frequently described as “the most dangerous mobster in the world.” Currently believed to be safe in Moscow ...
