"Paul Manafort, the convicted former chairman of Donald Trump's presidential campaign, told a business associate in January of 2017 he was using middlemen to get people appointed to the Trump administration, according to a court filing on Tuesday.
US Special Counsel Robert Mueller had been given until Monday by a federal court in Washington, DC, to provide evidence of his accusations that Manafort had lied to prosecutors on five subjects.
If such allegations are proven to be true, that would put Manafort in breach of a plea agreement under which he was meant to be cooperating with Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 president election, and whether Trump's campaign colluded with the foreign government.
The heavily redacted 188-page filing included new details about Manafort's communications with Trump administration officials, which continued even after he left the campaign in August of 2016 due to a scandal over cash payments related to his work for pro-Russia politicians in Ukraine."

Paul Manafort claimed to have used intermediaries to 'get people appointed in Trump Administration'

Prosecutors working for Mueller have “intensively” scrutinized Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s activities following the 2016 election and have indicated they have extensive details (not yet made public) about Manafort’s interactions with former Russian aide Konstantin Kilimnik and others, according to a court filing yesterday. Spencer S. Hsu reports at the Washington Post.
Manafort was working through “mystery intermediaries” in January 2017 in order to get people appointed in Trump’s new administration, according to the filing. Manafort described the hiring effort to his longtime deputy Rick Gates, who in turn revealed the secretive outreach to Mueller’s team after pleading guilty and agreeing to cooperate with the investigators, Darren Samuelssohn reports at POLITICO.
Gates is still cooperating in “several ongoing investigations,” Mueller’s office said yesterday, requesting a delay in his sentencing. Rich Shapiro reports at NBC.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) has dismissed claims that Mueller is looking into a 2017 meeting he attended along with former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and foreign officials, yesterday describing the Daily Beast article as a “fake news story.” Nunes added: “it’s always another day, they do another fake news story … I don’t even know what they’re talking … the fact that I’m holding meetings with ambassadors—you can have at it, because I do it every day,” The Daily Beast reports. 

The Republican-led U.S. Senate voted yesterday to advance a resolution disapproving of a Trump administration plan to ease sanctions on Russian companies tied to Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, clearing the way for debate and a vote on the plan. Reuters reports.

Manafort Claimed to Be Placing People in Trump Administration: Filing

1 Share
(Reuters) - Paul Manafort, the convicted former chairman of Donald Trump's presidential campaign, told a business associate in January 2017 he was using middlemen to get people appointed to the Trump administration, according to a court filing on Tuesday.
U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller had been given until Monday by a federal court in Washington to provide evidence of his accusations that Manafort had lied to prosecutors on five subjects, which would put Manafort in breach of a plea agreement under which he was meant to be cooperating with Mueller's probe.
The heavily redacted 188-page filing included some new details about Manafort's communications with Trump administration officials, which continued even after he left the campaign in August 2016 due to a scandal over cash payments related to his work for pro-Russia politicians in Ukraine.
In January 2017 Manafort told his former business partner Richard Gates that he was using intermediaries to "get people appointed in the Administration," according to the sworn statement of an FBI agent working for Mueller included in the filing.
Gates, who also served on Trump's presidential transition team, pleaded guilty last year to lying to the FBI and conspiracy against the United States and agreed to cooperate with Mueller's probe.
The filing also touched on Manafort's other alleged lies, including about his interactions with Konstantin Kilimnik, a former business partner who Mueller has accused of having Russian intelligence ties. But due to heavy redactions it was unclear if the filing contained any major new revelations.
Last week, Manafort's lawyers in court papers inadvertently disclosed that Manafort had shared polling data related to the Trump 2016 presidential campaign with Kilimnik.
The mistaken disclosure - caused by a formatting error that allowed redacted material to be viewed - triggered new concerns among legal experts and Democratic lawmakers about the extent of Manafort's Russia ties during his time on Trump's campaign, which included three months as chairman.
Mueller is investigating whether Russian interfered in the election and whether Trump campaign members coordinated with Moscow officials. Trump, who denies any campaign collusion with Russia, says he did not know Manafort shared the data. Russia denies interfering in U.S. elections.
In addition to the polling data revelation, the filing also showed that Mueller believed Manafort lied to prosecutors about his discussions with Kilimnik on a "Ukrainian peace plan" and a previously undisclosed meeting between Manafort and Kilimnik in Madrid. Manafort's lawyers said any incorrect statements by him were unintentional.
U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson has said she would review the evidence submitted by Mueller and any reply by Manafort's team before deciding whether a hearing on the matter is necessary.

Mueller: Manafort worked behind scenes to stock Trump administration

1 Share

Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman, was working through mystery intermediaries in January 2017 to get people appointed in President Donald Trump’s new administration, according to a court filing released Tuesday.
Manafort described the hiring effort to Rick Gates, his longtime deputy, who in turn revealed the clandestine outreach to special counsel Robert Mueller’s team after pleading guilty and agreeing to cooperate with investigators to lessen his own sentence.
Story Continued Below
According to Gates, Manafort continued speaking with the unidentified people — their names are redacted in the court filing submitted by Mueller’s prosecutors — through about February 2018, several months after the longtime GOP operative had first been indicted in the special counsel’s Russia inquiry on charges of money laundering, making false statements and other crimes.
Manafort was convicted on eight felony charges in August and is awaiting sentencing. In a deal with Mueller, he also pleaded guilty to other charges in September and agreed to cooperate with the special counsel.
It’s unclear whether Manafort was successful in his effort to stock the Trump administration with allies. But the new detail, which Mueller’s office indicated in a Tuesday court filing has been relayed to a federal grand jury, adds to the potential legal quagmire already swirling around Trump and his associates.
Mueller accused Manafort of lying to his prosecutors in late November and since then has been providing the court with evidence about a new suite of charges, which are expected to be a factor when a Washington-based federal judge sentences Manafort in March.
In Tuesday’s court filing, FBI special agent Jeffrey Weiland provided more information about the fact-challenged statements Manafort allegedly made over the course of 12 meetings with Mueller’s prosecutors and in two visits last fall to the grand jury. Mueller’s team also produced a 157-page document of exhibits making their case, though nearly everything in the file is blacked out.
Much of Weiland’s 31-page statement includes redactions that make it difficult to fully decipher what Manafort is accused of lying about to the Mueller team, though previous court filings indicate the breaches include his contacts with the Trump administration and Konstantin Kilimnik, a Ukrainian associate who has ties to Russian intelligence.
Weiland’s statement does provide additional details surrounding a May 26, 2018, text exchange that Manafort had with an unidentified third party who was asking permission to use Manafort’s name as an introduction in case the person met Trump.
“If I see POTUS one on one next week am I ok to remind him of our relationship?” the person texted Manafort, according to Weiland’s statement.
Manafort responded “yes” and “even if not one on one,” according to Weiland’s statement, which also said Manafort confirmed the interactions in his own grand jury testimony.
Also Tuesday, Mueller reported to the court that Gates “continues to cooperate with respect to several ongoing investigations” and again asked for a delay in the former Trump deputy’s sentencing. The federal judge presiding over Gates’ case agreed to the special counsel’s request to circle back on March 15 with another status update.
Attorneys for Manafort are not directly challenging Mueller’s charges that their client lied during his cooperation with the special counsel. Instead, they maintain that all of his misstatements “were not intentional” and happened only because he wasn’t prepared for his meetings with the special counsel, which began days before he pleaded guilty and continued after his Sept. 14 plea hearing.
Last week, Manafort’s lawyers failed to properly redact some of the sealed materials in their own filings and revealed details about what their client was accused of lying about, including his sharing of Trump campaign polling data with Kilimnik that has raised alarm among legal experts about possible collusion between Russia and the campaign.
Manafort is known to have had other contacts with Trump’s team after his ouster from the campaign, despite the scrutiny he drew for his work for Kremlin-connected politicians and businessmen in Eastern Europe — the same issues on which he’d later face charges in the Mueller probe.
Story Continued Below
POLITICO previously reported that Manafort called Trump’s first chief of staff, Reince Priebus, about a week after the presidential inauguration with strategic advice about how to fight back against the controversy swirling around the new administration over its campaign contacts with Russia.
It’s also not the first time Manafort has been linked to discussions of trying to help people get jobs in a Trump administration.
During his trial last summer in Virginia on bank and tax fraud charges, Mueller’s prosecutors presented evidence that the Federal Savings Bank of Chicago agreed to lend Manafort $9.5 million following an unusual dinner in New York between Manafort and the bank CEO, Stephen Calk.
The bank’s senior vice president, Dennis Raico, testified with a grant of immunity from Mueller’s team that Calk had asked him to contact Manafort after the dinner to inquire about a possible senior role in Trump’s administration, including secretary of Treasury or the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
While a jury in Alexandria, Va., convicted Manafort on five counts of tax fraud, two counts of bank fraud and a count of failing to file foreign bank account reports, the jury deadlocked on the count related to the Chicago bank loan.
Manafort is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 8 by U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis for his convictions stemming from the Northern Virginia trial. He also faces a March 5 sentencing in Washington for his separate guilty plea with Mueller on conspiracy against the U.S. and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

GUILTY: MICHAEL FLYNN 
Pleaded guilty to making false statements in December 2017. Awaiting sentence
Flynn was President Trump's former National Security Advisor and Robert Mueller's most senior scalp to date. He previously served when he was a three star general as President Obama's director of the Defense Intelligence Agency but was fired. 
He admitted to lying to special counsel investigators about his conversations with a Russian ambassador in December 2016. He has agreed to cooperate with the special counsel investigation.

GUILTY: MICHAEL COHEN
Pleaded guilty to eight counts including fraud and two campaign finance violations in August 2018. Pleaded guilty to further count of lying to Congress in November 2018. Sentenced to three years in prison and $2 million in fines and forfeitures in December 2018
Cohen was Trump's longtime personal attorney, starting working for him and the Trump Organization in 2007. He is the longest-serving member of Trump's inner circle to be implicated by Mueller. Cohen professed unswerving devotion to Trump - and organized payments to silence two women who alleged they had sex with the-then candidate: porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal. He admitted that payments to both women were felony campaign finance violations - and admitted that he acted at the 'direction' of 'Candidate-1': Donald Trump. 
He also admitted tax fraud by lying about his income from loans he made, money from  taxi medallions he owned, and other sources of income, at a cost to the Treasury of $1.3 million.
And he admitted lying to Congress in a rare use of the offense. The judge in his case let him report for prison on March 6 and  recommended he serve it in a medium-security facility close to New York City.
Campaign role: Paul Manafort chaired Trump's campaign for four months - which included the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in 2016, where he appeared on stage beside Trump who was preparing  to formally accept the Republican nomination

GUILTY: PAUL MANAFORT
Found guilty of eight charges of bank and tax fraud in August 2018. Pleaded guilty to two further charges. Awaiting sentence
Manafort worked for Trump's campaign from March 2016 and chaired it from June to August 2016, overseeing Trump being adopted as Republican candidate at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. He is the most senior campaign official to be implicated by Mueller. Manafort was one of Washington D.C.'s longest-term and most influential lobbyists but in 2015, his money dried up and the next year he turned to Trump for help, offering to be his campaign chairman for free - in the hope of making more money afterwards. But Mueller unwound his previous finances and discovered years of tax and bank fraud as he coined in cash from pro-Russia political parties and oligarchs in Ukraine.
Manafort pleaded not guilty to 18 charges of tax and bank fraud but was convicted of eight counts. The jury was deadlocked on the other 10 charges. A second trial on charges of failing to register as a foreign agent is due in September.

GUILTY: RICK GATES 
Pleaded guilty to conspiracy against the United States and making false statements in February 2018. Awaiting sentence
Gates was Manafort's former deputy at political consulting firm DMP International. He admitted to conspiring to defraud the U.S. government on financial activity, and to lying to investigators about a meeting Manafort had with a member of congress in 2013. As a result of his guilty plea and promise of cooperation, prosecutors vacated charges against Gates on bank fraud, bank fraud conspiracy, failure to disclose foreign bank accounts, filing false tax returns, helping prepare false tax filings, and falsely amending tax returns.

 Papadopoulos was a member of Donald Trump's campaign foreign policy advisory committee. He admitted to lying to special counsel investigators about his contacts with London professor Josef Mifsud and Ivan Timofeev, the director of a Russian government-funded think tank.

Neither the American or the Ukrainian have been named.

CHARGED: KONSTANTIN KILIMNIK
Indicted for obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice. At large, probably in Russia
Kilimnik is a former employee of Manafort's political consulting firm and helped him with lobbying work in Ukraine. He is accused of witness tampering, after he allegedly contacted individuals who had worked with Manafort to remind them that Manafort only performed lobbying work for them outside of the U.S.
He has been linked to  Russian intelligence and is currently thought to be in Russia - effectively beyond the reach of extradition by Mueller's team.
INDICTED: THE RUSSIANS 
Twenty-five Russian nationals and three Russian entities have been indicted for conspiracy to defraud the United States. They remain at large in Russia
Two of these Russian nationals were also indicted for conspiracy to commit wire fraud and 11 were indicted for conspiracy to launder money. Fifteen of them were also indicted for identity fraud. 
Vladimir Putin has ridiculed the charges. Russia effectively bars extradition of its nationals. The only prospect Mueller has of bringing any in front of a U.S. jury is if Interpol has their names on an international stop list - which is not made public - and they set foot in a territory which extradites to the U.S. 
INDICTED: MICHAEL FLYNN'S BUSINESS PARTNERS
  • Copy link to paste in your message
Bijan Kian (left), number two in now disgraced former national security adviser Mike Flynn's lobbying company, and the two's business partner Ekim Alptekin (right) were indicted for conspiracy to lobby illegally. Kian is awaiting trial, Alptekin is still to appear in court
Kian, an Iranian-American was arrested and appeared in court charged with a conspiracy to illegally lobby the U.S government without registering as a foreign agent. Their co-conspirator was Flynn, who is called 'Person A' in the indictment and is not charged, offering some insight into what charges he escaped with his plea deal.
Kian, vice-president of Flynn's former lobbying firm, is alleged to have plotted with Alptekin to try to change U.S. policy on an exiled Turkish cleric, Fethullah Gulen, who lives in Pennsylvania and who is accused by Turkey's strongman president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, of trying to depose him.
Erdogan's government wanted him extradited from the U.S. and paid Flynn's firm through Alptekin for lobbying, including an op-ed in The Hill calling for Gulen to be ejected. Flynn and Kian both lied that the op-ed was not paid for by the Turkish government. 
The indictment is a sign of how Mueller is taking an interest in more than just Russian involvement in the 2016 election.

Jared Kushner Agreed to Help Paul Manafort Secure Trump Administration Job for Banker Caught Up in Fraud Trial

1 Share
President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner expressed great willingness to help former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort when he requested a White House job for a banker caught up in Manafort’s trial on bank and tax fraud charges.
“On it!’’ Kushner wrote in an email response to Manafort on November 30, 2016, that prosecutors handed over as evidence in Manafort’s trail on Monday.
Manafort, whose case is being prosecuted by Russia probe special counsel Robert Mueller, was trying to secure a Trump administration job for Stephen Calk, who is the CEO of the Federal Savings Bank and loaned Manafort $16 million that prosecutors claim was part of a ploy to help Manafort extract cash from his properties.
The emails show that Manafort reached out to Kushner three weeks after Trump won the 2016 presidential election, asking that the Trump administration make a “major appointment” for Calk.
“Calk was an active supporter of campaign (sic) since April,’’ Manafort wrote in the email, mentioning that Calk served as an economic adviser for the Trump campaign and supported the future president in television interviews. “His background is strong in defense issues, management and finance. His preference is Secretary of the Army.’’
Manafort also made appointment recommendations for Vernon Parker, a Republican from Arizona who worked for both Bush administrations, and Pat Sink, a Republican labor leader.
"The 3 indivituals (sic) are people who I believe advance DT agenda,” Manafort wrote in the email to Kushner. “They will be totally reliable and responsive to the Trump White House.”
Despite Manafort’s communication and Kushner’s seemingly promising response, Calk did not land a job within the Trump administration.
It is unclear whether Kushner knew about Calk’s loan to Manafort, or if Trump’s transition team seriously considered Manafort’s recommendations.
A spokesman for Kushner’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Newsweek on Tuesday.
Calk in an interview with Bloomberg on Sunday said, “We’re fully cooperating with the Special Counsel’s office, and in fairness to both sides we cannot make any comment at this time.’’

Kushner, who was a key player during the transition and serves as a senior White House adviser, has been under Mueller’s watch as well. The special counsel has reportedly looked into whether Kushner used his official position to benefit his family-owned real estate business. He has spent several hours meeting with Mueller’s investigators as a witness.
