in essence he is a lawbreaker for over 10 year, and continues to break laws even after indicted.

next many pages redacted, their take by former prosecutor is it is only redacted because more indictments coming otherwise there would be few redactions.

Special Counsel: 'Manafort repeatedly and brazenly violated the law'

Quote:
Federal prosecutors have filed an extensive 800-page sentencing memo for Paul Manafort. The Special Counsel's Office says for over a decade Paul Manafort "repeatedly and brazenly violated the law" and they say his behavior "remarkably went unabated even after indictment." Prosecutors say that they do not take a position with respect to a particular sentence the judge should impose.

trump infers manafort a hero for not ratting him out.

Prosecutor: 'Hammer going to fall' on Manafort
Quote:

In a pivotal week in the Mueller probe, Special Counsel Bob Mueller is grinding down two former Trump aides and one Federal Judge will issue rulings that define the fate and possibly freedom of Roger Stone and Paul Manafort. Former Federal Prosecutor, Glenn Kirschner, tells Ari Melber that he believes Judge Amy Berman Jackson will treat Stone “like the teenager he’s behaving like”, after Stone potentially violated a gag order in his case.

here we go again, trump basically praising a guy who did not rat him out. again he has been involved in criminal activities for over 10 years and trump thinks he is a good person for not paying taxes on 10s- to hundreds of millions of dollars.

oh he is being so unfairly treated by them dems for that theft.

well NY is now going after him for other crimes that he cannot be pardoned for.

Manafort charged in New York with mortgage fraud and other state crimes

Quote:
Manafort charged in New York with mortgage fraud and other state crimes originally appeared on abcnews.go.com

The Manhattan District Attorney's office on Wednesday unsealed an indictment of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, shortly after he was sentenced in a case in a federal court in D.C.

According to the indictment, Manafort was charged with a total of 16 counts in the state of New York, including residential mortgage fraud and other state crimes, and if convicted on all charges could face between just over eight years and 25 years in prison, according to New York state law. The indictment was returned by a grand jury in Manhattan last week but announced on Wednesday moments after Manafort was sentenced to 73 months of imprisonment for illegal foreign lobbying and witness tampering in his D.C. case.

I got it... the smoking gun proof.

as we know trump likes to sue and or threaten to like he warned Stormy and went to court to shut her up because he claimed their was a confidentiality agreement.

That is the smoking gun, if someone does something that would violate a confidentiality agreement trump goes after them.

Hense trump never went after Manafort for giving sensitive campaign date to the russians. Again trump knows he did it and has not sued him for a violation of the confidentiality agreement.

again this data was confidential and important and sums of money approaching 10s of millions or much more were invested to get this data, it was not shared with dems and would never be shared with dems.

again manafort lied about this meeting in Spain with a russian operative. you do not diasapear from the campaign to met with a russian on a holiday, this was arranged and preplanned. It was done out of the country to hide us intelligence picking up on such an interaction. again Manafort agreed to completely co-operate yet still hid this gem.

In Highly Unusual Move, Dep. AG Intervenes to Keep Manafort Out of Rikers.

He’s special.


Paul J. Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman who is serving a federal prison sentence, had been expected to be transferred to the notorious Rikers Island jail complex this month to await trial on a separate state case.

But last week, Manhattan prosecutors were surprised to receive a letter from the second-highest law enforcement official in the country inquiring about Mr. Manafort’s case. The letter, from Jeffrey A. Rosen, Attorney General William P. Barr’s new top deputy, indicated that he was monitoring where Mr. Manafort would be held in New York.

And then, on Monday, federal prison officials weighed in, telling the Manhattan district attorney’s office that Mr. Manafort, 70, would not be going to Rikers.

NY Times

“Paul Manafort Seemed Headed to Rikers. Then the Justice Department Intervened.

The decision came after Attorney General William Barr’s top deputy sent a letter to state prosecutors. Mr. Manafort will now be held in a federal lockup while he faces state charges.”

Calling this highly unusual doesn’t even begin to capture how strange it is for the no. 2 official at DOJ to intervene in a state custody issue. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/17/nyregion/manafort-rikers.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share

so what he has returned about 60 million in stolen funds to the USA? All because of Stormy... now on trial in NY that trump cannot pardon him for.

Needless to say trump cannot pardon himself for NY crimes either.

Mueller Missed the Crime: Trump’s Campaign Coordinated With Russia

Quote:
Mueller Missed the Crime: Trump’s Campaign Coordinated With Russia
The Daily Beast The Daily Beast•July 10, 2019962 Comments

Quote:
Ever since the release of the Mueller Report, countless commentators have implored everyone to just #ReadtheReport. The problem is not who is reading it—the problem is the report itself, and its many errors.

Robert Mueller made a significant legal error and, based on the facts he found, he should have identified Trump campaign felonies. Mueller’s errors meant that, first, he failed to conclude that the Trump campaign criminally coordinated with Russia; second, he failed to indict campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates for felony campaign coordination (see in a concise timeline below); third, the 10 acts of felony obstruction in Volume II fell flat among the general public because it lacked compelling context of these underlying crimes between the campaign and Russia. On top of these errors, the former special counsel said he deliberately wrote the report to be unclear because it would be unfair to make clear criminal accusations against a president.

The bottom line is that the Mueller Report is a failure not because of Congress or because of public apathy, but because it failed to get the law, the facts, or even the basics of writing right. When Mueller testifies before Congress on July 17, he should be pressed on all of this.


Quote:
0. Aug. 2 and thereafter:

Manafort shares with Kilimnik detailed internal polling data, focusing on battleground states Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Minnesota. Manafort continued sharing such information “for some period of time” thereafter. Other Mueller prosecutorial statements indicate that this polling data was substantial, around 70 pages. Gates suspected that Kilimnik was a “spy,” and shared this suspicion with Manafort. (The report also notes the FBI assessed him to be “tied to Russian intelligence,” and that “Kilimnik was fired from his [nonprofit position] because his links to Russian intelligence were too strong.”) “Kilimnik requested the meeting to deliver in person a peace plan for Ukraine that Manafort acknowledged to the Special Counsel's Office was a ‘backdoor’ way for Russia to control part of eastern Ukraine.”

Manafort and Gates had further contacts with Kilimnik after August 2, including more contacts about the “peace plan.” This plan was Russia’s plan to lift sanctions, the quid from the Trump Tower meeting. This was more than just a wink and a nod. It was the consistent message, continuing after the election. Unfortunately, Mueller never made this context clear.

In fact, this episode leads to one of the most dumbfounding passages in the report: “The Office could not reliably determine Manafort’s purpose in sharing internal polling data with Kilimnik during the campaign period.” Mueller entertains Manafort’s assertion that this sharing was “good for business.” Because the polling showed off Manafort’s skills with color graphics? No, because it was valuable coordination between the campaign and Manafort’s oligarch sponsors.

Even if one takes the most charitable interpretation of Manafort’s denial of coordination (to “resolve [Deripaska’s] outstanding lawsuits”), Manafort is essentially confessing to conspiracy/quid pro quo. This is the Mueller Report in a microcosm: he has evidence that Manafort committed two different kinds of crimes, yet he bends over backward to a known liar to conclude that instead of both crimes, it was neither.

After this meeting, the report documents Russia agents targeting Pennsylvania miners with a rally planned for October. But the report failed to mention that Russians also targeted Michigan and Wisconsin in their social media campaign, as was widely reported in 2017. Even if there is no evidence that these ads had a significant effect on the voting, and even if Russian agents had other sources to suggest these states were key battlegrounds, the Russian effort is consistent with a broader pattern of coordination.

Mueller should have concluded that both Manafort and Gates engaged in felony campaign coordination, and he should have indicted Manafort for it. Manafort is a lawyer with decades of experience working for presidential campaigns: it would be less difficult to establish “knowing and willful” violations. And Manafort’s extraordinary record of lying to prosecutors—and coordinating his lies with Trump’s lawyers—would help prove the case as an inference of consciousness of guilt. In the very least, Mueller should have explicitly stated that there was substantial evidence of illegal coordination, even if it was insufficient for a criminal prosecution.

Members of Congress should lay out this timeline clearly on July 17, and ask tough questions of Mueller: Why did you ignore the law of campaign coordination, which was clearly established by Congress and the FEC, and thoroughly upheld in broad terms by the Supreme Court? Did your failure to identify the correct legal standard limit your investigation of Manafort, Gates, Stone, and Trump? If you knew of these rules, why did you fail to identify this coordination as illegal once you found it?

Mueller’s failures and omissions have another round of dangerous cause-and-effect. He is opening the loophole that Congress was purposely trying to avoid, and he is telling all the 2020 campaigns that these rules will not be enforced. Now Trump and his aides seem to think they have legal permission to openly do all of it again. Rudy Giuliani flagrantly tested these coordination rules in his political contacts with Ukraine officials. Given Mueller’s failure and Trump’s exploitation of that failure, it is now Congress’s duty to the public, the candidates under investigation, and future candidates to identify the law clearly, and to explain that some of this behavior was a civil violation, and in fact a criminal violation.
