Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who was convicted in August 2018 on eight charges of tax and bank fraud related to work conducted in Ukraine and sentenced to 7 1/2 months in prison, has been granted a release as the novel coronavirus spreads in prisons.
Trump is actively trying to erase the Russia scandal before the 2020 election, and now he is tweeting about Paul Manafort.
The signs are mounting that special counsel Robert Mueller may soon be issuing a report with the findings from his investigation which has been going on nearly two years.
The past week was a very eventful one for Mueller and his team of investigators, and there were several clues that their work may soon conclude with a final report to the Justice Department (DOJ).
Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” hosts had some choice words concerning the “slap on the wrist sentence” given to President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.
They said that Manafort being sent to a “white man’s prison” is about the same thing as being sent away to college for four years.
All of Washington is waiting for special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia. Rumors are that Mueller could submit a report to the Department of Justice (DOJ) as early as next week. If that happens, it would bring to a close what the president refers to as a “witch hunt.” In fact, it is an investigation that has dominated headlines for nearly two years.
The federal government will soon begin selling off Paul Manafort’s assets which he accumulated after decades of shady and illegal lobbying work. After the process is completed it is expected that Bob Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election will have made a profit, bringing in more money than it has cost.
A former GOP member of Congress has predicted that Donald Trump will leave the White House “soon” in a “spectacular political crash-and-burn” set to take place during 2019.
John LeBoutillier, who was a Republican representative in New York City back in the 1980’s, made his prediction in a column for The Hill.
Special Counsel Bob Mueller has slowly been disclosing a very broad and extensive pattern of deception by Donald Trump’s aides and associates, according to the Associated Press. Seemingly everyone involved tried to cover up Russian contacts during the 2016 campaign and transition period, the AP reported.

NEW YORK/ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Reuters) – A U.S. Treasury Department official has been criminally charged with leaking confidential documents relating to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and others to a reporter from digital media company BuzzFeed, Manhattan federal prosecutors said on Wednesday.
Rep, Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that Trump and his lawyers are terrified that Paul Manafort is cooperating with Robert Mueller.
Paul Manafort hand-picked Mike Pence to be Trump's VP nominee, so Manafort's flip could be very bad news for the vice president.
Prosecutor Andrew Weissman told the Judge in the Mueller probe that President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has agreed to cooperate with the Justice Department.
Is convicted felon Paul Manafort finally ready to give Bob Mueller the evidence he needs to bring down Donald Trump?
According to the Washington Post, Manafort is again having serious discussions with the special counsel’s office about a possible plea deal.
Before talks broke down, Paul Manafort was trying to cut a plea deal with Robert Mueller, in a sign that the rumblings about a pardon coming from the White House weren't good enough for Trump's former campaign chairman.
What’s bad for Donald Trump is bad for the Republican Party, and yesterday was a horrible day for Donald Trump.
Republicans are suffering because they have allowed Trump to do a hostile takeover of their party. And now, like it or not, when people think of the Grand Old Party they think of Trump.
Trump claimed that the Manafort conviction had nothing to do with him while denying the reality that Manafort was in charge of his presidential campaign at a critical point.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, used the Paul Manafort conviction and Michael Cohen guilty plea as proof that the Mueller investigation is not a witch hunt.
