New Indictment Filed Against Paul Manafort Names Ally With Russian Intel Ties

Paul Manafort appears to be running out of ways to combat a key charge in the Mueller probe

Why and who is the longtime political operative?

Manafort has been the subject of a long-running investigation over his dealings in Ukraine several years ago - for which he didn't file as a foreign agent until June 2017. In one, Mueller cited an Federal Bureau of Investigation assessment that those ties continued into the 2016 election.

"Manafort might be feeling considerable pressure, since he seems to be in considerable trouble, maybe the most of anyone Mueller's team is investigating", he told Business Insider, "and therefore he might be frantically looking for some way out of his dilemma".

Mueller initially laid out those accusations in a February indictment.

What kind of foreign work did Manafort do?

The charges stemmed from his PR and campaign work for former pro-Russian Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych. After Yanukovych was elected president in 2010, Manafort reportedly stayed on as an adviser and worked on other projects in Eastern Europe, including the Party of Regions political party. The Special Counsel has not provided Mr. Manafort with its witness list.

Manafort's latest round of troubles started early this week, when Mueller's team asked a judge to review his house arrest and to consider jailing him over an alleged attempt to influence witnesses.

CNBC reported that Manafort's Trump Tower purchase was an "all-cash deal".

The former Trump campaign chairman has been indicted again.

The indictment serves a strategic goal in raising public awareness about the connections that those who worked on Trump's campaign had with Russians, and it serves a legal objective by putting more pressure on Manafort to become a cooperating witness, said Katie Phang, a former prosecutor and partner at the Berger Singerman LLP law firm in Miami.

Earlier on Friday, Mr Trump denied that he was considering pardoning Mr Manafort.

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on Friday denied allegations from special counsel Robert Mueller that he engaged in witness tampering.

Kilimnik is, according to CNN, "a close business colleague of Manafort's who prosecutors have said has close ties to Russian intelligence".

On Friday, June 8, spectracolor the USA Robert Muller has filed charges against the former head of the election headquarters of Donald trump Paul Manafort. Manafort pleaded not guilty and is fighting the charges in court. The dismissive nature of Manafort's response is maintained throughout the response. These entities were in a previous Manafort indictment, and Mueller is alleging that they are connected to Manafort's grand money laundering scheme.

Before Kilimnik was identified by name in charges on Friday, he had made multiple appearances in Mueller's filings as an unidentified intermediary for Manafort. "You don't really care about Mr. Manafort's bank fraud".

Jackson previously gave Manafort a pass after federal agents found he had ghostwritten an opinion piece in Ukraine even though he was under a gag order in the case.
