Let me get this straight. Manafort gave Trump campaign data to Deripaska via his boy Kilimnik, who then presumably gave it to the Kremlin, and of all companies affected by Trump's tariffs, Treasury has repeatedly sought ways to exempt Deripaska's companies from tariffs?

Wasn't Deripaska also running Maria Butina?

Just a coincidence, I'm sure.

You can copy the black highlighted “redactions” in the Manafort team’s filing, paste it somewhere else, and see what it says.

And it works! That's funny as hell. How much is he paying for legal services?


Wasn't there some other incident a while back where one of these incompetent people didn't use technology right and accidentally revealed some stuff? Seems like this kind of thing has happened before but I can't remember the details.

I don't know, but some poor bastard at Paul Manafort's law firm is probably having a really bad week.

Oh yeah I was thinking of the time Manafort couldn't figure out how to convert a Word document into a PDF. This article has a whole list of things he's messed up. Here is the section on the PDF fail:

Paul Manafort Is Terrible With Technology
Quote:
In February 2018, federal prosecutors unsealed a new indictment against the Manafort, accusing him and his associate Richard Gates of committing tax and bank fraud. Mueller’s team detected the scheme in part because Manafort needed Gates’ help converting a PDF to the Microsoft Word format.

According to the indictment, in October 2016 Manafort created a fake financial statement for his company in order to obtain a loan. He first emailed Gates the real document, which showed $600,000 in losses, and asked Gates to convert the PDF to Word so he could edit it. He then added more than $3.5 million in income and emailed the file back to Gates, requesting he convert it again into a PDF. The emails made it easy for Mueller’s team to tell how and when the financial statement was doctored.

Think about it though, why all the hidden contact with Russia as opposed to other nations, such as France or Australia?

Quote:
Mr. Cohen’s decision to appear before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Feb. 7 sets the stage for a blockbuster public hearing that threatens to further damage the president’s image and could clarify the depth of his legal woes. Mr. Cohen, a consigliere to Mr. Trump when he was a real estate developer and presidential candidate as well as informally as president, was privy to the machinations of Mr. Trump’s inner circle and key moments under scrutiny by both the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, and federal prosecutors in New York.

He could soon share them on national television under oath.


You see? Politics are just a game, a spectacle. Something to sit back and enjoy for entertainment. Not something with real-world consequences or anything like that.
