CBS This Morning: Paul Manafort May Be Guilty Of "Tax Evasion, Money Laundering, And Illegally Providing Funds For Lobbyists"

UPDATE: Paul Manafort Has Reportedly Resigned From The Trump Campaign

 

CLOSING IN ON TRUMP'S RUSSIAN CONNECTIONS FOLKS.

 

 

 

MARGARET BRENNAN (CO-HOST): This morning, a Ukrainian lawmaker is revealing new details about millions of dollars in cash possibly set aside for Donald Trump's campaign chairman by a pro-Russian political party he consulted for. Investigators are looking for the person who signed for that money. Paul Manafort says he never received any secret payments. Our Charlie D'Agata is in Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, where he has seen the evidence. Charlie, good morning.

CHARLIE D'AGATA: Good morning. Well this is a copy of the statement that was released condensed from the black ledger. And yes, there are items like expenses and computer equipment, but in some cases the reason for payment is listed in just one word: "Manafort."

 

It details what appears to be undisclosed cash payments to Paul Manafort from his client's party at the time, Russian-backed former President Viktor Yanukovych, like never before. 22 items dating back from November 20th, 2007. The biggest entries -- $1.3 million, $1.15 million, and $3.5 million -- simply state "payment" or "Paul Manafort contract," in all, totaling to $12.8 million. The new details were brought to life by anti-corruption politician Serhiy Leshchenko. Do you believe that's enough to start pursuing criminal charges against Mr. Manafort?

 

SERHIY LESHCHENKO: There are some investigations in Ukraine based on these records. And I believe he has to be interrogated in this case too.

 

D'AGATA: Investigators are now trying to determine whether Manafort played a key role in secretly routing millions of dollars to U.S. lobbyists. Though none of the entries are signed by Manafort, it’s Vitaliy Kalyuzhny's signature that appears most. He was a senior member of Yanukovych's party who founded an organization that reportedly paid millions of dollars to Washington-based lobbyists in order to sway public opinion in favor of Russian-backed Yanukovych. And anti-corruption officials say another name popped up on that ledger, Larry King. The name of the former CNN host appears next to a payment of $225,000 just two months before this 2011 interview with then-Prime Minister Mykola Azarov. Just another bizarre twist in what has become an increasingly murky tale.

 

Well Larry King aside, as far as investigators here are concerned, Paul Manafort may be guilty of tax evasion, money laundering, and illegally providing funds for lobbyists in the United States, and he should face questioning here or in America.

CBS This Morning Examines Alleged Payments To Trump Campaign Chairman From Pro-Russian Ukrainian Politicians.

 

OOOOPS!!!!!!!!! THAT IS ILLEGAL TRUMP!!!

 

 

CHARLIE ROSE (CO-HOST):
Sources tell the Associated Press that Donald Trump's campaign chairman helped a political party in Ukraine secretly send more than $2 million to Washington lobbyists. Paul Manafort was a consultant for that pro-Russian party. A handwritten ledger shows the party also set aside millions of dollars in undisclosed cash payments for Manafort. Charlie D'Agata has seen part of the evidence. He is in Kiev, the Ukrainian capital. Charlie, good morning.

 

CHARLIE D'AGATA: Good morning. More than two years ago, this independence square was in chaos. President Viktor Yanukovych overthrown. In the corruption investigations that followed, Paul Manafort's name has surfaced and officials here want to know why. The ledger details $5 billion in undisclosed cash handouts, some designated to Paul Manafort, political consultant to Russian-backed strongman Viktor Yanukovych at the time. Deputy prosecutor Nazar Kholodnytsky is in charge of the investigation. Are you investigating Paul Manafort?

 

NAZAR KHOLODNYTSKY: We are investigating all this black ledger, including the name Paul Manafort in this case. We have a lot of questions. What was this money for, paid for? And taxes, and so on.

 

D'AGATA: The prosecutor confirmed that Manafort's name appears 12 times for 22 different entries, totaling $12.7 million between 2007 and 2012. Manafort has denied receiving any cash payments, and it's not his signature on the ledger. Investigators say they're tracking down those who did sign for the cash. The ledger itself is held at the anti-corruption bureau. We weren't allowed to film the Manafort pages because of the ongoing investigation, but a source showed us a copy of one page. On October 5th, 2012, Paul Manafort's name appears against a sum of $400,000 designated for exit polling. Another for $812,000 was marked for international observers.

[...]

Prosecutors told us they will consider bringing criminal charges against Paul Manafort, just like every other name allegedly on that list, if they believe there's been any wrongdoing.

Yep, Manafort is gone. The only question remaining now, is why the guy he gave the Russian money to - John Podesta, is still Hillary's campaign chair.

 

 

 

Wow.. the dishonesty. You must get off at spreading misinformation?

As first reported by BuzzFeed, the Podesta Group announced Friday that it has retained law firm Caplin & Drysdale to investigate whether or not the lobbying firm unwittingly did work for the pro-Russian political party in Europe that also hired Manafort.

Story Continued Below

Although the Podesta Group was founded by Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, he has not been involved with the lobbying firm that bears his name for years. His brother, Tony Podesta, is currently chairman of the firm.

Now, I want this on record. You're claiming that John Podesta retains no ownership or involvement in the Podesta Group?

That's not a question anyone is talking about... What they are talking about is a campaign in total disarray.,

Not that you'd ever be honest enough to admit that.,

 

So have you officially changed your vote to Trump??? Don't even try to deny it.

When you EARNED the name " Trump's colon" it's pretty obvious to everyone, "Mr. Unsophisticated."

Whatever happened here, it's easy to assume Podesta was much less involved than Manafort.. if not, I suppose an investigation will reveal that, wont it?

So now you're backpedaling on your claim that John Podesta isn't part of the Podesta Group, after saying I was "dishonest"?

Yea, that's exactly what we're talking about here. Do please try to keep up.

And if the Trump campaign is in "disarray", Hillary should be so afflicted.

Trump kicked her ass this week. And Obama too.

 

Everyone saw Trump acting presidential, while Obama golfed, and Hitlery slept.

Let's see how much Trump kicked Hillary's ass:

 

Trump went from a 19.4% chance of winning to a 20.2 % chance of winning within the last day. .8 %

Everybody saw the carefully orchestrated staged photo op of Trump passing small packages for 5 minutes. People were probably thinking it was the most work he's done in years.

 

You think that's going to make the country forget about his racist comments, his mocking the handicapped reporter, his flame out on George Stephanopolous's show, him attacking Gold Star parents and so on and so on?

Yes, you're that stupid and naive to think that.

How many campaign managers has HRC gone thru?

Who did AD Stoddard, the editor of Real Clear Politics, say this about: " That two week stretch was the biggest meltdown in election history."

 

Your feeble flaccid continuing defense of the worst candidate in our nation's history is your lowest point in your political forum career. And as we both know there has been so much to choose from.

 

Which makes this quote of yours even more hysterical each and every day:

" I haven't tried to defend Trump because I'm not a supporter. "
