As reported by the newspaper The Washington Post, FBI agents in July (but this became known only now) raided and searched to the Floor Manufactu – last year he was one of the key figures of the campaign trump, in June of 2016 was headed, but in August was forced to resign. The reason for this was the scandal about the fact that Manafort did not disclose this element of their personal finances, as an honorarium of $12.7 million received from the Ukrainian Party of regions for the business of Victor Yanukovych.
The Commission of inquiry headed by spectaculorum, the former head of the FBI Robert Mueller is now actively developing a number of persons that perform various functions in the campaign of Donald trump – including the son and son-in-law of the President. But Manafort, apparently, is not peripheral, but Central to these efforts aimed at figuring out whether there was collusion between campaign trump and Russian representatives.
Investigators seized from the suspects (or, if not suspects, “persons of interest”) of different materials. Manafort’s lawyer says that his client voluntarily submitted to a consequence all required materials and that during the search they couldn’t withdraw anything without giving them Manafort. But experts from the security services interviewed by The Washington Post indicate: no, it’s not so simple. If Robert Mueller had made a search, it means that the consequence does not trust Manafort, suspects him of a possible destruction of evidence and that the investigation failed to convince a Federal judge that issued the search warrant. Arrived early – at five in the morning that the customer did not have anywhere to “undoing”…
Experts believe that Mueller sees Manaforce potential “reluctant assistant” in the investigation trunovskogo “Russia-gate”. If he gets caught (using confiscated during a search of computers, phones, papers, etc.) that he lied, testifying before the special Commission of the Muller and Congress of the United States, it shines a real good time, and investigators hope to persuade him to cooperate in exchange for leniency.
News Agency The Associated Press previously reported that, in addition to royalties from Yanukovych, Manafort received $10 million in the period 2006 to 2009 for lobbying work for the billionaire Oleg Deripaska – “a close ally of Putin.” Manafort was one of trump’s entourage (along with presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner and son Donald trump, Jr.), who participated in last year’s June meeting with Russian lobbyists, who promised to give the dirt on Hillary Clinton.
Paul Manafort not yet caught on illegal financial machinations. But, as reported by the new York public radio WNYC, was revealed his connection with 15 Bank accounts in Cyprus and 10 companies registered in the same place, in the Cyprus offshore. Arouses suspicion that he has bought the property not for themselves but for one of these companies, and with cash, and then companies charge conveyed the estate to him and took it under the large mortgage loans.
Ex-FBI Director Mueller will be sure to dig deep, investigating the finances of Manafort (as, indeed, and Finance of the trump). And if it has found something illegal, it will also be a lever of pressure on Manafort.
