Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort is indicted on $75 million money-laundering charge and accused of conspiring against the U.S. as Mueller probe ramps up – but Trump says it all happened ‘years ago.’ Does not include any charges against Trump and most of this happened in 2012-2013. We guess Obama and his cohorts were too busy covering for him and Hillary to notice.

The indictment against Manafort, 68, and Gates, 45, includes 12 separate criminal counts: conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) statements, false statements, and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts.

The government alleges that at least $75 million was moved by Manafort to offshore accounts without declaring the income to the government. Form there Manafort allegedly withdrew $18 million to fund a lavish lifestyle, and Gates pulled another $3 million out.

Who is going to arrest Mueller who is that deep in corruption from the uranium one deal?

Damn, Manafort messed up. He didn’t kick anything up to the Krime Family. He forgot to give slick and hildabeast their gratuity.

If he had simply called his money laundering scheme the “Manafort Foundation” things would have been fine.

The Clintons don’t like anyone stealing their business model.

Number one, this doesn’t seem to have anything to do with Trump colluding with Russians to swing the 2016 election. Which means Mueller has deviated from his assigned area. Presumably because his assigned area of investigation bore no fruit.

Number two, Manafort might be guilty as sin and yet be unconvictable because Mueller blew it with the search warrant. None of this stuff was mentioned in the search warrant and Manafort’s lawyer says they got it from communications between him and Manafort which happened to be in Manafort’s house. Those communications are not covered by any search warrant. Ever. Prosecutors can NOT spy on a man’s communications with his lawyer. If this goes to trial we won’t know for years but I suspect everything Mueller learned from the search of Manafort’s house will be thrown out of court. This wouldn’t be the first time Mueller fucked up.

She doesn’t, this is all a re-direct from the bombshells that were released last week. That’s what happens when you have a guy that should be investigating the crimes that he likely signed off on in the first place. Disgusting.

Who will be the first Progressive loudmouth to label the indictments “a smoking gun”, thereby demonstrating again that Progressives know nothing about guns?

Meuller is probably busy destroying the “smoking guns”. Having him investigate his friends is like having Stalin investigate Soviet Crimes.
