BREAKING! Manafort Was Putin’s Proctologist

Filed in International, National by on March 22, 2017

No wonder Trump’s mouthpieces are trying to minimize the role of Trump’s former campaign chair:

According to the AP, Manafort was directly working as a lobbyist on behalf of Vladimir Putin as far back as 2005, which directly contradicts administration assertions that no campaign official had any direct contact with Russia:

President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, secretly worked for a Russian billionaire to advance the interests of Russian President Vladimir Putin a decade ago and proposed an ambitious political strategy to undermine anti-Russian opposition across former Soviet republics, The Associated Press has learned. The work appears to contradict assertions by the Trump administration and Manafort himself that he never worked for Russian interests.

Read the entire article.  It’s strong reporting.  At some point, all the Trump-Russia connections will prove untenable.  We’re gonna be seeing stuff like this every day.

Jason330, I hereby predict that Donald Trump will not be President by the end of 2017.  I stake my reputation on it. I mean, what’s left of it.

    Its not just Manifort…what about Flynn…he took money from the Russians and Turkey. Turkey wants Gulen who Erdogan blamed for their riots…Flynn would have pushed Trump to extradite him. Its Jared and Ivanka who have real estate dealings with Russian Oligharchs. In fact, Ivanka best friend was Putins girl friend. Why was the Russian Ambasador at the GOP convention…what other republicans did he meet there? Steve Bannon is an admitted Leninist? Sorry the Russians are now in the White House. Tillerson has been dealing with Putin since 2008 and has a huge oil deal with them. The only problem is the sanctions preventing Exxon from drilling and stealing the Russian peoples assets.

    Four more months? It’s been barely more than two months and I’m already exhausted from this administration.
