Trump Wants to Bring Felon He Pardoned Onto His Campaign

 

Quote

Paul Manafort worked on the 2016 campaign before serving time for financial crimes. The former president wants him back.

Paul Manafort worked on Donald Trump‘s 2016 campaign, was a central figure in Robert Mueller’s investigation into the campaign’s ties to Russia, and ultimately served prison time for a slew of financial crimes. Trump pardoned Manafort before he left office, and now wants to bring him onto his campaign to retake the White House, according to The Washington Post.

Manafort, a longtime lobbyist and fixture in Republican politics, served as the chairman of Trump’s 2016 campaign before being ousted from the role that August. His ties to Russia drew the attention of Mueller, who charged him with several crimes, including hiding money he made lobbying on behalf of Russia-friendly politicians like former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. He was also accused of lying to Mueller about his relationship with Konstantin Kilimnik, a well-connected Russian with whom he allegedly shared internal polling data. The Post notes that the bipartisan Senate committee investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election found that “Manafort’s presence on the campaign and proximity to Trump created opportunities for Russian intelligence services to exert influence over, and acquire confidential information on, the Trump campaign.”

Manafort was found guilty in 2018 on eight counts stemming from Mueller’s investigation, and sentenced to nearly eight years in prison in early 2019. Trump let him off the hook the following December, a month before he left office. “As a result of blatant prosecutorial overreach, Mr. Manafort has endured years of unfair treatment and is one of the most prominent victims of what has been revealed to be perhaps the greatest witch hunt in American history,” the White House said in a statement.

The Post reported on Monday that Trump is now “determined” to bring Manafort onto his 2024 campaign, and that discussions about a potential role have centered around fundraising and the Republican National Convention in July. The New York Times confirmed later on Monday that Manafort is in discussions to return to Trump’s campaign to help with the convention.

It’s unclear whether Manafort will actually join Trump’s campaign, or what inspired the former president to want to rehire him despite the problems Manafort caused during his term in the White House. Trump may now feel a little solidarity with his former campaign chief, as Trump himself has in the last year been contending with a bevy of legal issues related to his finances, as well as being charged with felonies related to his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election and his retention of classified material after leaving the White House.

Russia, Russia, Russia... there he goes AGAIN.

So let me get this straight... Manafort's personal tax problems from 1995 are a huge deal but Joe Biden's confidential docs hidden in his garage and other locations all around the US isn't a problem? The fact that he sent his underlings to try to cover up his confidential document theft crimes isn't a problem? The fact that he shared classified secrets with an author who had no security clearance whatsoever isn't a problem? The fact that Joe Biden used his office to get his son millions of dollars from corrupt oligarchs and Communist Party of China agents is no big deal? The fact that Joe Biden can't answer questions from reporters isn't a problem? 

Demtards got 99 thousand problems and Manafort ain't one.

^Can't even address the Russian collusion represented by Manafort's YEARS of working for Russian oligarchs, Putin's puppet Yanukovych, and sharing confidential campaign data with Russian agent Kilimnik.

If you want to talk about your Biden LIES, there are plenty of other threads where you can make that case IF you have one.

Knowing people isn't the same as "colluding".  Sorry.  And neither trump nor his campaign was ever accused of collusion, nor did  any of the investigators every claim there was enough evidence to even try  a  charge.

Fail.

 

All you're doing is driving people into trump's corner even harder.These cheezy innuendos and 8 years of 'collusion' that always turned out to be bullcrap has just motivated people to vote for trump more.

Here's how the average voter is going to see things:

Campaign data? It was polling data. Since when is a poll confidential?

You Libbies have gone way to far with this furious need to "get trump". Regardless of how anyone feels about the guy, you have warped the law and cheated way too much.

In return, the American public is set to give you 4 more years of a Trump presidency.

Well...that and the obvious fact the Brandon is an addled old failure.

Paul Manafort was 'a grave counterintelligence threat,' Republican-led Senate panel finds.

“"The Committee found that Manafort's presence on the Campaign and proximity to Trump created opportunities for Russian intelligence services to exert influence over, and acquire confidential information on, the Trump campaign," according to the nearly 1,000-page report released Tuesday.”

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/08/18/senate-details-paul-manafort-ties-russian-intel-officer-kilimnik/3390437001/

Because Manafort repeatedly lied to investigators, his plea deal was revoked and he was sentenced to 90 months in Federal prison.

Since it was done by the campaign and NOT published. Duh

Why didn't they just publish it and NOT SECRETLY share it with the Russian agent?

Too bad neither you nor Trump had EVIDENCE to justify ^this OPINION.

I'll bet if Trudeau did what Trump tried to do, you'd throw a shitfit, just like you'd murder anyone trying to break down your front door.

This is exactly why Manifort was pardoned and why Trump is ahead in all the polls. The Tweenkies are a public joke now. You...robo-bot...happen to be the punch line.

Enjoy the election.

No Manafort was pardoned to keep him from flipping on Trump. Just like all the OTHER Trump cronies.

Of course, you don't care about the law, cause you believe your CULT is above the law.

Polls this early MEAN NOTHING. And Biden is ahead in some of the polls. AKA, neck and neck within the margin of error.

Do you know what that is?

  • The Committee found that Hunter's proximity to Joe and the millions of dollars they were receiving from foreign criminals and Chinese Gov't agents created opportunities for Russian intelligence services, Ukrainian Intelligence services and Chinese intelligence services to exert influence over, acquire services from, and likely acquire confidential information on, the US gov't.

Hunter and Joe routinely lied to the public, the media and investigators, but the FBI still works for the Dems so there's no real danger of anything being done about it.

That actually did speak to the issue, it just requires a brain to process it :)

This isn’t a thread about Joe Biden. It is about Paul Manafort. The REPUBLICAN US SENATE said that he is a “grave US national security threat.” So why should a Grave Security Threat have a highly senior job in the Republican Party?

They also said that Joe is a “grave US national security threat.”

Its a job on the campaign trail and he doesn't have it yet. They're not talking about making him secretary of defense. Lets keep it in perspective.
