US v Manafort

Post by Forty Two » Thu Nov 02, 2017 7:07 pm

https://apnews.com/ffb7fc2995d64452be11 ... indictment

So, Paulie says he dindoonuffin.

He says all transactions were from legal sources, and that he did not set up offshore accounts or otherwise avoid US processes and taxes. He claims the indictment is "embellished." Pleads not guilty.

So, what have they got on him?

Where's the beef?

Who knows what they've got on him. Why speculate? We know what's in the indictment - let's see what each side bring to court eh?

That's what the thread is for - to continue the discussion as the case progresses.

Ah, OK. Would you like me to add Gates and the indicted Russians to the thread title?

You can do what you want, but they can also be the subject of other threads. A 12 count federal indictment is rather complex, and worthy of its own thread. Also, there are no indicted Russians. There has been some mention that the government says it has enough evidence to charge some unidentified Russians, but that arrests would be very unlikely. So, make of that what you will.

I was just offering to use my Mod POWAZ!! to update the thread title for you if you wanted me to. Gates and Manafort do stand on the 12 count indictment together. Your call.

I wonder how long it'll be before it gets to court?

People think "queue" is just "q" followed by 4 silent letters.

But those letters are not silent.

They're just waiting their turn.

Manafort put himself 'above the law' to fund his expensive tastes, court hears
Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort put “himself and his money above the law” to bankroll a lavish lifestyle that included a $21,000 watch and a $15,000 jacket made from ostrich, a court heard on Tuesday.

“As the old adage goes, just follow the money,” assistant US attorney Uzo Asonye told the jury on the first day of the lobbyist and political consultant’s trial on 18 charges of bank fraud and tax evasion.

But Manafort’s defence sought to shift blame to his deputy, Rick Gates, and attempted to cast doubt on his forthcoming evidence by claiming that he betrayed Manafort’s trust and “had his hand in the cookie jar”.

The arguments were heard on the first day of the first trial arising from Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged collusion between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia. Mueller was not present in the courtroom in Alexandria, Virginia, and Trump’s name was not mentioned.

Even so, a pin could have been heard to drop as Asonye embarked on his opening statement. “A man in this courtroom believed the law did not apply to him,” he said, as Manafort looked on without expression. “No tax law, no banking law.”

The evidence gathered by Mueller’s team would show that Manafort funneled more than $60m in proceeds from his Ukrainian political consulting through offshore accounts and had hidden a “significant” portion of it from the IRS, the prosecutor continued. It funded multiple luxury homes, fast cars and “fancy clothes” worth half a million dollars...
