Paul Manafort ghost-wrote draft of op-ed with colleague thought to have ties to Russian intelligence

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team says Paul Manafort and a Russian colleague were ghost-writing an English-language editorial about Manafort's work for Ukraine, and that colleague is "assessed to have ties to a Russian intelligence service," according to documents filed by the special counsel.

The government said in a brief that the ghost-written draft op-ed would constitute a violation of the court's order banning statements to the press. U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson has already reprimanded Manafort's attorney, Kevin Downing, for talking to the media after Manafort appeared in court for his indictment. "This is a criminal trial, not a public relations campaign," she said in November.

This Russia deal just keeps getting deeper and deeper....

This Russian stuff keeps getting shallower and shallower! It has been going on and on and on and.......nothing! Absolutely nothing.

If there was any real evidence whatsoever demonstrating Candidate Trump had illegally colluded with the Government of Russia then the NSA would have it, as would the CIA and the FBI among others. By now it would have been all over the media several dozen times already. Instead we see..... nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Just look at the nonsense......a Russian colleague thought to have ties...
Thought?
Thought by whom?

The mainstream media is full of this fake nonsense. Innuendo, smearing, dishonesty, propaganda, purile nonsense. No wonder so many people do not trust them any more.

Meanwhile, the international situation is getting more and more dangerous while the world financial situation slides closer to utter disaster.

Right, nothing but, "smoke and mirrors', and I figure the handful of people that are behind all this the hope that they will ultimately rule the world are doing it to addle the masses pointy little heads.

It's got to be 7 people or fewer because its been proven that over 7 people can't get along as, "ONE MIND"...

They have their, "talking heads", talk about EVERYTHING EXCEPT reining in the IMC by stopping the world-wide fighting and petty wars much less, fixing the worlds financial woes!!

No money in doing either of these things if they are both fixed!!
