Wow Paul Manafort is having a really bad week. First he got replaced as the campaign manager of el Trumpo’s vain power-grab, then he had to pretend that he wasn’t replaced, and then he was fired the next day! Now it turns out that he’s being investigated by the feds over his ties to the Russians:
FBI and Justice Department prosecutors are conducting an investigation into possible US ties to alleged corruption of the former pro-Russian president of Ukraine, including the work of Paul Manafort’s firm, according to multiple US law enforcement officials.
The investigation is broad and is looking into whether US companies and the financial system were used to aid alleged corruption by the party of former president Viktor Yanukovych.
Manafort, who resigned as chairman of Donald Trump’s campaign Friday, has not been the focus of the probe, according to the law enforcement officials. The investigation is ongoing and prosecutors haven’t ruled anything out, the officials said.
But don’t celebrate just yet, Hillary Clinton!! Because of your politically incestuous relationship with scam artists, your guy is implicated too!!
The probe is also examining the work of other firms linked to the former Ukrainian government, including that of the Podesta Group, the lobbying and public relations company run by Tony Podesta, brother of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
That, is amazing. Let’s hope both of these idiots go down in flames and someone competent becomes President….
Here’s our fall coverage of the rise and fall of Putin’s puppet Trumpster, Paul Manafort!
