Default Manafort used Trump campaign account to email Ukrainian operative

I hope Paul Manafort can draw this into the new year...2018 before he caves and spills the beans on the tRump crime family.

<Former Donald Trump aide Paul Manafort used his presidential campaign email account to correspond with a Ukrainian political operative with suspected Russian ties, according to people familiar with the correspondence.>

<Manafort sent emails to seek repayment for previous work he did in Ukraine and to discuss potential new opportunities in the country, even as he chaired Trump’s presidential campaign, these people said.>

<Manafort had been a longtime consultant for Viktor Yanukovych, the Ukrainian president until 2014, and his Party of Regions. During the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, Ukrainian investigators said they had discovered evidence that Manafort received millions of dollars in off-the-books payments for his work there.>

Another fake news, phony scandal based on rumors from unnamed sources. Manafort had contacts with a Russian billionaire, that explains Trump's wins in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

Remember the name "Konstantin Kilimnik" you'll be hearing that name in the coming months.

And it will lead to more nothing....

The left is desperate and it shows. But their arguments are getting weaker and less frequent. I suppose like a fire that dies, the embers last a while...

Truth is there is NOTHING on Trump of any consequence.

Left over whining and crying and bitching about the election loss...

But it is running out of steam and Trump has over 3 years left till re election. Lots of time to kill the progressive agenda of Obama, and turn our nation around in the right direction.

Regards, Kirk

And this is illegal because?????

Manafort holds no public office of trust. He can speak with, and do business with, whomever he wishes, just like any other US citizen.

Another false conspiracy dead end. Kilimnik supposedly visited the US when Manafort was Trump's campaign manager. After he returned to Russia he attempted to drum up business by inflating his influence over the Trump campaign.

Quote:
when Kilimnik returned to Ukraine after that trip, he suggested to Kiev political operatives that he played a role in a move by Trump’s representatives to dilute a proposed amendment to the GOP platform calling for the U.S. to provide “lethal defensive weapons” for Ukraine to defend itself against Russian incursion.

“He led me to believe that he was involved in the platform fight, but not necessarily through Paul,” said a Kiev-based operative who travels in the same circles as Kilimnik. The operative added that Kilimnik could have been “just bull****ting like political consultants do.”

A Trump campaign adviser familiar with the platform debate said he was not aware of Kilimnik playing any role in the proceedings and, in fact, hadn’t even met Kilimnik.
This is from an article linked to the OP. No doubt you read it.

If you read all the links, wonder why you didn't comment on this link?

"Manafort offered to give Russian billionaire ‘private briefings’ on 2016 campaign."

Cherrypick much?

That is why he will go to jail.

Your link doesn't work, but I researched it...

Manafort offered to give Russian billionaire ‘private briefings’ on 2016 campaign


Fifth paragraph down...which negates the whole article...

Quote:
There is no evidence in the documents showing that Deripaska received Manafort’s offer or that any briefings took place. And a spokeswoman for Deripaska dismissed the email ex*changes as scheming by “consultants in the notorious ‘beltway bandit’ industry.”

The point is he made the offer. Not that the Russians refered to him as a beltway bandit.
