What has Robert Mueller told us about Cohen, Flynn and Manafort? | US news

1 Share
There has been intense activity over the past two weeks in Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election and possible collusion by members of Donald Trump’s campaign team.
Developments in the criminal prosecutions of three of Trump’s most important former advisers have enraged the president and shed new light on what Mueller has learned in the 19 months since his appointment as special counsel.
Here, the Guardian reviews the key updates in the cases of Michael Cohen, Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort – and explores what the new disclosures could mean for Trump as the inquiry continues.

Michael Cohen

Developments Federal prosecutors in New York said on Friday that Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer and legal fixer, should receive a four-year prison sentence for a series of crimes he has admitted.
Cohen last week pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about Trump’s plans for a tower in Russia, admitting the project continued well into Trump’s campaign for the presidency. He previously admitted violating campaign finance laws by arranging payoffs to buy the silence of two women who said they had affairs with Trump. He also confessed to crimes relating to his personal finances.
What we’ve learned Prosecutors said Trump directed Cohen to make the illegal payoffs to women, indicating the Justice Department has supporting evidence for an allegation first made by Cohen in August.
Mueller revealed that Cohen repeatedly sought Russian government support for a Trump Tower Moscow on behalf of his boss. He entered discussions in November 2015 with a Russian offering “political synergy” from the Kremlin in business and politics. He later spoke with a Kremlin official.
Cohen disclosed previously unknown contacts with White House officials in 2017-18, according to Mueller, and recalled “preparing and circulating” his responses to congressional investigators, hinting that others were complicit in false statements he made in those responses.
Mueller told a judge in New York that Cohen also gave information on other “core” Russia-related issues in Mueller’s inquiry into any collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia.
What it means for Trump The president has been implicated in two felonies – a dire situation for the White House. Prosecutors have not yet said whether they believe Trump showed the criminal intent required for a prosecution.
Trump also misled the public in 2016 by saying he had no business links to Russia. Cohen said he had briefed Trump and his family extensively on the project. Trump, his son Donald Jr and son-in-law Jared Kushner could face serious problems if their own answers to Mueller and Congress contradict this.
And Mueller even appears confident he has evidence linking the Trump Organization and its senior executives – three of whom were Trump’s eldest children – to Russian interference in the 2016 election. This would be catastrophic for the president.

Michael Flynn

Developments Mueller told a judge in Washington that Trump’s former national security adviser and campaign aide should receive a light sentence including no prison time. Flynn pleaded guilty last year to lying to the FBI. He gave false accounts of telephone calls in December 2016 with Russia’s ambassador about sanctions imposed on Moscow by Barack Obama, and a United Nations vote on Israel.
What we’ve learned Flynn has given “substantial assistance” to the Trump-Russia investigation, Mueller said in a court filing. He has given 19 interviews, handed over documents and offered first-hand accounts of “interactions between individuals in the presidential transition team and Russia” following the 2016 election. Mueller said Flynn’s help was particularly valuable “because he was one of the few people with long-term and first-hand insight” of the matters being investigated.
What it means for Trump: 
Flynn will have told Mueller whether Trump issued the order for him to urge Russia not to retaliate against US sanctions. Trump may have broken the law by doing so as he was not yet president. Flynn reportedly told Mueller that Kushner told him to ask Russia to vote “no” at the UN. Kushner possibly broke the law by doing so. Further details of what Flynn has disclosed about Russia, which were kept secret in this week’s filing by Mueller, may also imperil Trump.

Paul Manafort

Developments Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, told five “principal lies” to Mueller’s investigators even after agreeing to cooperate with their inquiry. Last week, Mueller tore up a plea deal with Manafort and told a judge he should soon be sentenced for crimes that could see him spend the rest of his life in prison.
What we’ve learned Manafort was in contact with the White House as recently as May 2018, despite his denials of such contacts. He also lied about his interactions with Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian former business partner who is alleged to have links to Russian intelligence, Mueller said. And he gave false statements about information linked to a separate investigation.
What it means for Trump Whether Manafort’s ties to pro-Kremlin figures in eastern Europe are connected to Russia’s interference in the 2016 election remains the central unanswered question in the Trump-Russia investigation. Mueller on Friday redacted several paragraphs in his filing about Manafort’s interactions with Kilimnik, indicating they may relate to the presidential campaign.
Any finding by Mueller that Trump’s campaign chief was complicit in Moscow’s efforts to sway the election to Trump could be devastating for the president.
A discovery that Manafort was discussing a possible pardon from Trump in 2018 could lead to further allegations that Trump obstructed justice. Manafort’s convictions on other crimes so far relate to his private business and tax affairs, with no direct connection to Trump.

Who is Paul Manafort? Trump's ex-campaign manager pitched a secret plan to benefit Putin - U.S. News

1 Share
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.
Manafort proposed in a confidential strategy plan as early as June 2005 that he would influence politics, business dealings and news coverage inside the United States, Europe and the former Soviet republics to benefit the Putin government, even as U.S.-Russia relations under Republican President George W. Bush grew worse. Manafort pitched the plans to Russian aluminum magnate Oleg Deripaska, a close Putin ally with whom Manafort eventually signed a $10 million annual contract beginning in 2006, according to interviews with several people familiar with payments to Manafort and business records obtained by the AP. Manafort and Deripaska maintained a business relationship until at least 2009, according to one person familiar with the work.
"We are now of the belief that this model can greatly benefit the Putin Government if employed at the correct levels with the appropriate commitment to success," Manafort wrote in the 2005 memo to Deripaska. The effort, Manafort wrote, "will be offering a great service that can re-focus, both internally and externally, the policies of the Putin government."
Manafort's plans were laid out in documents obtained by the AP that included strategy memoranda and records showing international wire transfers for millions of dollars. How much work Manafort performed under the contract was unclear.
The disclosure comes as Trump campaign advisers are the subject of an FBI probe and two congressional investigations. Investigators are reviewing whether the Trump campaign and its associates coordinated with Moscow to meddle in the 2016 campaign. Manafort has dismissed the investigations as politically motivated and misguided, and said he never worked for Russian interests. The documents obtained by AP show Manafort's ties to Russia were closer than previously revealed.
In a statement to the AP, Manafort confirmed that he worked for Deripaska in various countries but said the work was being unfairly cast as "inappropriate or nefarious" as part of a "smear campaign."
"I worked with Oleg Deripaska almost a decade ago representing him on business and personal matters in countries where he had investments," Manafort said. "My work for Mr. Deripaska did not involve representing Russian political interests."

Deripaska became one of Russia's wealthiest men under Putin, buying assets abroad in ways widely perceived to benefit the Kremlin's interests. U.S. diplomatic cables from 2006 described Deripaska as "among the 2-3 oligarchs Putin turns to on a regular basis" and "a more-or-less permanent fixture on Putin's trips abroad." In response to questions about Manafort's consulting firm, a spokesman for Deripaska in 2008 — at least three years after they began working together — said Deripaska had never hired the firm. Another Deripaska spokesman in Moscow last week declined to answer AP's questions.
Manafort worked as Trump's unpaid campaign chairman last year from March until August. Trump asked Manafort to resign after AP revealed that Manafort had orchestrated a covert Washington lobbying operation until 2014 on behalf of Ukraine's ruling pro-Russian political party .
The newly obtained business records link Manafort more directly to Putin's interests in the region. According to those records and people with direct knowledge of Manafort's work for Deripaska, Manafort made plans to open an office in Moscow, and at least some of Manafort's work in Ukraine was directed by Deripaska, not local political interests there. The Moscow office never opened.
Manafort has been a leading focus of the U.S. intelligence investigation of Trump's associates and Russia, according to a U.S. official. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the investigation were confidential. Meanwhile, federal criminal prosecutors became interested in Manafort's activities years ago as part of a broad investigation to recover stolen Ukraine assets after the ouster of pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych there in early 2014. No U.S. criminal charges have ever been filed in the case.
FBI Director James Comey, in confirming to Congress the federal intelligence investigation this week, declined to say whether Manafort was a target. Manafort's name was mentioned 28 times during the hearing of the House Intelligence Committee, mostly about his work in Ukraine. No one mentioned Deripaska.
White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Monday that Manafort "played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time" in the campaign, even though as Trump's presidential campaign chairman he led it during the crucial run-up to the Republican National Convention.
Manafort and his associates remain in Trump's orbit. Manafort told a colleague this year that he continues to speak with Trump by telephone. Manafort's former business partner in eastern Europe, Rick Gates, has been seen inside the White House on a number of occasions. Gates has since helped plan Trump's inauguration and now runs a nonprofit organization, America First Policies, to back the White House agenda.
Gates, whose name does not appear in the documents, told the AP that he joined Manafort's firm in 2006 and was aware Manafort had a relationship with Deripaska, but he was not aware of the work described in the memos. Gates said his work was focused on domestic U.S. lobbying and political consulting in Ukraine at the time. He said he stopped working for Manafort's firm in March 2016 when he joined Trump's presidential campaign.
Manafort told Deripaska in 2005 that he was pushing policies as part of his work in Ukraine "at the highest levels of the U.S. government — the White House, Capitol Hill and the State Department," according to the documents. He also said he had hired a "leading international law firm with close ties to President Bush to support our client's interests," but he did not identify the firm. Manafort also said he was employing unidentified legal experts for the effort at leading universities and think tanks, including Duke University, New York University and the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
Manafort did not disclose details about the lobbying work to the Justice Department during the period the contract was in place.
Under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, people who lobby in the U.S. on behalf of foreign political leaders or political parties must provide detailed reports about their actions to the department. Willfully failing to register is a felony and can result in up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, though the government rarely files criminal charges.
Deripaska owns Basic Element Co., which employs 200,000 people worldwide in the agriculture, aviation, construction, energy, financial services, insurance and manufacturing industries, and he runs one of the world's largest aluminum companies. Forbes estimated his net worth at $5.2 billion. How much Deripaska paid Manafort in total is not clear, but people familiar with the relationship said money transfers to Manafort amounted to tens of millions of dollars and continued through at least 2009. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the secret payments publicly.
In strategy memos, Manafort proposed that Deripaska and Putin would benefit from lobbying Western governments, especially the U.S., to allow oligarchs to keep possession of formerly state-owned assets in Ukraine. He proposed building "long term relationships" with Western journalists and a variety of measures to improve recruitment, communications and financial planning by pro-Russian parties in the region.
Manafort proposed extending his existing work in eastern Europe to Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Georgia, where he pledged to bolster the legitimacy of governments friendly to Putin and undercut anti-Russian figures through political campaigns, nonprofit front groups and media operations.
For the $10 million contract, Manafort did not use his public-facing consulting firm, Davis Manafort. Instead, he used a company, LOAV Ltd., that he had registered in Delaware in 1992. He listed LOAV as having the same address of his lobbying and consulting firms in Alexandria, Virginia. In other records, LOAV's address was listed as Manafort's home, also in Alexandria. Manafort sold the home in July 2015 for $1.4 million. He now owns an apartment in Trump Tower in New York, as well as other properties in Florida and New York.
One strategy memo to Deripaska was written by Manafort and Rick Davis, his business partner at the time. In written responses to the AP, Davis said he did not know that his firm had proposed a plan to covertly promote the interests of the Russian government.
Davis said he believes Manafort used his name without his permission on the strategy memo. "My name was on every piece of stationery used by the company and in every memo prior to 2006. It does not mean I had anything to do with the memo described," Davis said. He took a leave of absence from the firm in late 2006 to work on John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign.
Manafort's work with Deripaska continued for years, though they had a falling out laid bare in 2014 in a Cayman Islands bankruptcy court. The billionaire gave Manafort nearly $19 million to invest in a Ukrainian TV company called Black Sea Cable, according to legal filings by Deripaska's representatives. It said that after taking the money, Manafort and his associates stopped responding to Deripaska's queries about how the funds had been used.
Early in the 2016 presidential campaign, Deripaska's representatives openly accused Manafort of fraud and pledged to recover the money from him. After Trump earned the nomination, Deripaska's representatives said they would no longer discuss the case.
