    Conspiracy against the US, money laundering, lying to the Feds…and more.

    Anyone expect Trump to be principled and NOT pardon Manafort?

  2. Due process says:

    The indictment against Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump campaign official Rick Gatesthe contains 12 counts: conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading US Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) statements, false statements, and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts. The charges do not cover any activities related to the campaign, though it’s possible Mueller could add additional charges. The two are scheduled to make their initial court appearances before US District Magistrate Judge Deborah Robinson at 1:30 p.m. ET Monday. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/10/30/us/politics/document-paul-manafort-rick-gates-indictment.html

The recipients of Papadopoulos’s emails are not named in the filings, but The Washington Post has identified several individuals based on interviews and other documents. Papadopoulos pleaded guilty this month to lying to federal agents about his outreach to Russia.”

  5. Update says:

    ● A former top aide to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has agreed to plead guilty to fraud-related charges and will testify against the former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, the Los Angeles Times reported on Sunday. Rick Gates’ decision to plead guilty is a reversal for the former Trump deputy campaign manager, who initially pleaded not guilty in October after being indicted on charges similar to the ones Manafort is facing. The pair were charged with 12 counts related to money laundering, tax fraud, conspiracy against the US, and failure to register as foreign agents. http://www.businessinsider.com/rick-gates-pleads-guilty-report-2018-2?r=UK&IR=T ● Trump Should Pardon Flynn, Gates, Himself and Everyone in the Russian Collusion Investigation, Conservatives say https://www.politico.com/story/2018/02/19/trump-russia-pardons-mueller-flynn-417094 ● Trump attacks everyone but Russia : The president continues his barrage of tweets after the Mueller indictments. https://www.politico.com/story/2018/02/18/trump-twitter-mueller-fbi-russia-scandal-416858 ● Re: Mueller indictments see https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2018/02/mueller-roadmap/553604/
