Paul Manafort Defense Team Shoots Back at Mueller’s Witness Tampering Accusation

Post by Ken0069 » Wed Jun 06, 2018 3:42 am

Usually two sides to every story, at least whenever the biased lamestream media and mueller's storm trooper tactics are concerned!! Oh, did I mention that mueller is a piece of shit?? =D>

Paul Manafort Defense Team Shoots Back at Mueller’s Witness Tampering Accusation
Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, on trial for several felonies surrounding his activities in Eastern Europe before his role in the campaign, denied Tuesday Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors’ allegation he and an associate attempted to tamper with witnesses due to testify in his case.

“Mr. Manafort is innocent and nothing about this latest allegation changes our defense,” Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni told Brietbart News in a statement Tuesday. “We will do our talking in court.”

Andrew Weissman, Mueller’s leading prosecutor attached to his Special Counsel’s Office “Russia investigation,” dropped a series of serious accusations on Manafort and another unnamed person Monday in a motion to U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson. Weissman is seeking to have Manafort sent back to jail while he awaits trial, arguing his alleged attempt to tamper with witnesses represents a violation of the terms of his bail agreement, under which Manafort is now able to remain on home detention.

According to the declaration from an FBI agent attached to the motion, the two men repeatedly sought to contact a pair of public relations people with whom they supposedly worked during the advocacy for long-since ousted pro-Russian President of Ukraine Victor Yanukovych. The motion claims the PR workers believed Manafort and his associate were trying to influence their testimony and “suborn perjury.”

On Tuesday, Judge Berman Jackson set a Friday, June 15 date for a hearing on Weissman’s motion, at which time Manafort could be sent to jail. The FBI agent on whose declaration the witness tampering allegations are based, Brock Domin, is ordered to “be present and available testify” at the hearing. Manafort’s team will have until this Friday to file their response to the allegations. (more here)

Weissman is a real p.o.s. and there's only one reason he's on the Mueller team: get a prosecution on anyone for anything!

"Oh, did I mention that mueller is a piece of shit?? "

Classy, a strong impression you make in your opening sentence.

Do I need to quote Latin again?

Mueller grasping at straws?

Title: The Manafort Tampering Allegation (No Evidence)

"Special Counsel Robert Mueller has accused Paul Manafort of attempted witness tampering. If the allegations are true, Manafort will have violated the conditions of his release and might have his bail revoked. Judge Amy Berman Jackson has scheduled a hearing on the matter for late next week.
I yield to no one in my disdain for President Trump. And I certainly have no brief for Manafort, who has been accused of laundering tens of millions of dollars from sources connected with Russia and the Ukraine. Thus my overall assessment is that Manafort has some significant legal exposure and that, given his role in the Trump presidential campaign, that exposure is of concern to Trump and of interest to the special counsel.
All that said, I think that the special counsel's allegations of witness tampering are rather ... thin. The FBI agent's declaration in support of the allegations is long on detail about what Manafort and the "Hapsburg Group" did before the elections and short on information about the tampering allegation itself. Drill down into the exhibits and you will see that only one, Exhibit N, is evidence of communications between Manafort and the witnesses he is alleged to have contacted in a tampering effort."

He plead guilty to "willfully and knowingly"?

Sounds like a real pushover general then.

Not according to the two FBI agents who interviewed him. They believed Flynn was telling the truth. IMHO Mueller is hell bent on getting an indictment of some sort. [-X It will go on record that J-C-C avoided answering the question.

Clearly the judgement of those 2 agents is poor since he confessed. So he either lied about the meetings or lied about lying....so he's a liar in either case.
