Paul Manafort accused of witness tampering

June 5, 2018

  Things seem to keep getting worse for Paul Manafort as he is now accused of witness tampering and there are calls for him to be jailed while he awaits trial. Here is more:

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort made several attempts to tamper with witnesses in his ongoing criminal case, prosecutors said Monday as they asked a federal judge to consider jailing him while he awaits trial.

In a court filing , prosecutors working for special counsel Robert Mueller wrote that Manafort and one of his associates “repeatedly” contacted two witnesses in an effort to influence their testimony. The contacts occurred earlier this year, shortly after a grand jury returned a new indictment against Manafort and while he was confined to his home.

The allegations of attempted witness tampering relate to Manafort’s criminal case in Washington where he faces charges of money-laundering conspiracy, false statements and acting as an unregistered foreign agent for Ukrainian interests. He also faces bank fraud and tax evasion charges in Virginia.

In the latest court documents, prosecutors say that while he was under house arrest, Manafort and his associate attempted to get two witnesses to lie about the nature of lobbying and public relations work they carried out at Manafort’s direction on behalf of Ukraine.

  While we are reminded in the first sentence that Paul Manafort was a former campaign chairman for Donald Trump you have to read down several paragraphs to find out this has nothing to do with the 2016 election or Russian meddling in the election.

  It looks as if Paul Manafort is in some serious legal trouble here and if found guilty of any or most of the crimes he is accused of he will be going to jail for a long time. However, while this has nothing to do with the 2016 election the left wants to see anybody who ever had any dealings with Donald Trump go down and they will still take some kind of odd pleasure in seeing a Trump associate go down while still trying to link this story to the election.
