  1. I understand they have everything that life has to offer. But that is never enough. He needed more he got greedy and this is what happens. His daughter changed her last name . That is pretty sad when your kid has to change their last name they are so embarassed to be related to you.

  2. It should concern any fair American that it is likely that Manafort is being prosecuted because of his connection to Donald Trump. In other words, none of this would have happened if Manafort had not worked with a President targeted by the deep state. The system, and some of these comments, demonstrate sadism and a double standard. I don't trust or respect the system.

  3. Actually the special counsel was specifically assigned to look into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election. Mueller of course has decided to broaden the scope dramatically at our taxpayers expense. And the only true meddling has been the DNC collusion the Clinton campaign to pay for a false/fake dossier created using Russia supplied disinformation on Trump. This became the justification by the FBI to spy on an American citizen lawfully running for president. Of course Mueller doesn't want to look into that..

  4. โ€œIโ€™m going to surround myself only with the best and most serious people. We want top-of-the-line professionals.โ€ โ€” Donald Trump, Aug. 8, 2015.

  5. A better topic is WHO is Christopher Steele and how is he involved the corruption, Mueller, the Clinton's and Uranium . This is all deflection from the bigger issues! Government has gotten far too large and far too bloated. Demand 100% transparency

  6. I want to know about Christopher Steele? And the Russia collusion set up by the FBI in an attempted coop of an American President ?? Forget Manafort his a small fish just like your news media reporting to deceive the American people!!!!

  7. LOCK ๐Ÿ‘ HIM ๐Ÿ‘ UP ๐Ÿ‘ LOCK ๐Ÿ‘ HIM ๐Ÿ‘ UP ๐Ÿ‘ LOCK ๐Ÿ‘ HIM ๐Ÿ‘ UP ๐Ÿ‘ LOCK ๐Ÿ‘ HIM ๐Ÿ‘ UP ๐Ÿ‘ LOCK ๐Ÿ‘ HIM ๐Ÿ‘ UP ๐Ÿ‘

  8. So Manafort was asked to give up $46M in property and assets before, and it was estimated that he was worth around $50M, so that leaves him with $4M? Is that correct? Or is he in debt because he owes an oligarch millions?

  9. Harshest Punishment Yet. ?
    what a joke , on ill gaines in America: which is an Epidemic. Governmental Systems/ Banking Systems/ Educational Systems/Religion's Institutions/ the Presidency itself. we are all extinct.

  10. To quote Judge Jackson speaking to Manafort: "He did not plead guilty to contacting witnesses. He pled guilty to conspiring" with his Russian associate Konstantin Kilimnik to contact the witnesses. Source CNN News
