Friday’s very detailed indictment of twelve Russian government military officers sent notice to the world that Robert Mueller and his team know everything about what went on between Donald Trump and the Russians who supported him.
It appears that Paul Manafort’s VIP treatment in a Virginia jail is coming to an end after his attorneys complained about the conditions of his imprisonment. Manafort will soon be transferred from the federal lockup in Warsaw, Virginia where he is currently incarcerated to a jail in Alexandria, Virginia, where his trial will begin on July 25th on bank fraud and tax charges.
In a court filing, Special Counsel Robert Mueller showed that even while locked up in jail, Paul Manafort is continuing to commit crimes by sending and receiving emails.
The New York Times is reporting today that two of Paul Manafort’s closest associates turned on him and gave evidence to Robert Mueller leading to the special counsel filing new charges of witness tampering against President Trump’s former campaign chairman.
After President Donald Trump distanced himself this past week from Paul Manafort it became clear that the former campaign chairman should not be expecting a presidential pardon. Trump posted a tweet that seemed to come out of nowhere, and it was a clue that something new and very important was about to come out about Manafort. Trump tweeted at 6:34 a.m. on Sunday:
The bad news just keeps on coming for former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.
Yesterday we reported that a federal judge denied Manafort’s request to loosen his bail conditions, saying he can’t use some of his assets to meet a $10 million bond obligation.
"The indictment contains 12 counts: conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading FARA statements, false statements, and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts," the counsel said in a statement.
Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort blocked Russia probe special counsel Robert Mueller from obtaining the transcript of Manafort's summer interview with Senate Intelligence committee, according to a new report from CNN.
