Manafort, Gates Indicted in First Charges in Mueller Probe

Washington, DC(AP)...President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and a former Manafort business associate, Rick Gates, were indicted Monday on felony charges of conspiracy against the United States, acting as an unregistered foreign agent, and several other financial counts involving tens of millions of dollars routed through offshore accounts.




The indictments, the first arising from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s sprawling investigation into possible coordination between Russia and Trump’s 2016 election effort, bring the probe into a new phase and pose the threat of a years-long prison sentence for the man who once led the president’s campaign.

But the indictment doesn’t reference the Trump campaign or make any allegations about coordination between the Kremlin and the president’s aides to influence the outcome of the election in Trump’s favor. The indictment does allege a criminal conspiracy was continuing through February 2017.

May justice finally come smashing down on these two creeps trying to remake the county in their own decrepit image.

I bet there is a direct line from the corrupt trump camp right down to Dennis the menace and his cronies. Probably runs right through the dirty rotten racist heart of jeffe session straight into the culture hating veins of our own little local fuhrer. If only the content of a mans character was equal to the size of their mustache.

      It's weird to go after her. It's like minimizing the local meth and opiate crisis in order to more effectively attack marijuana cultivation.

Anyone else see what's slowly winding through the court system against the two feces throwing monkies we got on the supes board? Maybe calaveras needs a special prosecutor to finally right the local government ship?

    Totem Pole

    A Totem pole had the top and faces below it. In taking out the lower faces on the pole, Mueller is going up the pole to the traitor Dotard.

    With Mueller just getting starting , we have one guilty plea , who is probably working on a plea bargain giving the poop on the campaign and people involved, and 2 indited .
    How many in 8 years in the Obama campaign or administration ? Zero.
    In Reagan's administration we had Iran Contra, and 13 did jail time.

    Some reflection is in order. How many Republicans have been jailed?

    It's time to shut off Fox noise, and hate radio and rejoin reality truth, and America

    The Dotard and his pals are traitors. If you support the Dotard, you support a traitor, and his Russian string puller- Putin.

    Russia had it's way with America. It's time to stop this.

    Why does the GOP now love Russia? Could it be the Oligarchs in Russia, and America have only one allegiance- $$$$

    So the Republicans choose $ over country.

    You must be so proud.

    LOL. Go back and review the history of how Manafort came to be Trump's campaign manager. Trump didn't know Manafort. Maqnafort was not a well known Republican campaign manager that anyone would recommend to Trump. Manafort's only connection was to Russia, where he clearly was their pawn. Russia told Trump to hire Manafort and Trump did it because Russia has had compromising material on Trump for years. Why do you think Trump NEVER criticizes Russia or Putin? Why do you think Trump has not actually imposed the new Russian sanctions Congress passed months ago by overwhelming bipartisan margins (veto-proof margins, so Trump eventually signed the bill)? Trump is owned by Moscow.

    Manafort came in as campaign manager and the Trump campaign made just ONE change to the Republican platform. They insisted that the language supporting the arming of the Ukranian government to fight Russians in east Ukraine be taken out of the platform. It was taken out. Look it up.

    Manafort knows all of this and has the proof. Now he is indicted. Now Mueller owns him.

      Fox ignoring the guilty Papadopoulos plea. Ha Ha Ha Ha.
      When Fox ignores, it is trying to bury something.
      Papadopoulos is the story, he will take the Dotard campaign down, Pense also.
      Ryan will be a lame duck president from all of this.
      Democrats sweep in 2018, like they did after Nixon.

        But, but....this would mean Trump was LYING when he said there was no Russia connection. Trump lied? I'm shocked. Shocked.

        The only real question is whether the wing-nuts who continue to support Trump have any integrity at all. Will they finally admit their guy is a LIAR who sought and took help from the Russians?

            Says a person who never watches MSNBC. They are certainly left-leaning but they are far more fair and balanced than FOX. Check PolitiFact or other sites that monitor lying on news shows.

            Or just spend one day comparing Chris Hayes to Sean Hannity and report back who is more fair and balanced.

    Trump never evolved beyond the "I'm rubber, you're glue" defense. He uses it all the time. Remember the debate where Hillary called him Putin's puppet and Trump immediately began interrupting by saying "No puppet. I'm not a puppet. You're the puppet."

    Trump is sooooo Stuuupid!
