Either the pundits and their staffs are disingenuous or stupid, or both! Mr. Manafort worked on Pres. Trump’s campaign for six months, and contacts with the Russians or Ukrainians seem nonexistent at this point from the disclosures in the media.
We know that Manafort took Russian businessmen to The Hill for meetings with U.S. Senators and Congressmen. If this is the case something is wrong. Why wouldn’t one of them alert the Trump campaign of these activities by Manafort in the past and the effective it would have on the campaign. It appears the “swamp” wanted the controversy to surround the campaign and the potential presidency.
Remember, Manafort’s contact with the Russians and Ukrainians came as a lobbyist for the Podesta Group.
Keep the Faith Baby!
