Former Trump Campaign manager of three months Paul Manafort was charged today in the Robert Mueller witch hunt of the Donald Trump campaign.
Rick Gates, his longtime business associate, was also charged according to news reports.
Manafort was Donald Trump’s campaign manager for three months in 2016.
Manafort turned himself in today.
Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski went on Varney and Co. to discuss the arrests this morning.
Lewandowski lashed out at the corrupt FBI for hiding information on Manafort from candidate Trump before he came on campaign.
Corey Lewandowski: My initial thoughts are very clear. If Paul Manafort did something in 2006 a decade before he was brought on as a volunteer of the Trump campaign then he should be accountable for that. He and his associate Rick Gates have now been indicted on 12 counts of money laundering and probably tax evasion and other things which have absolutely nothing to do with the campaign, have nothing to do with the Russia investigation, and have nothing to do with the president. And let me ask you this Charles, if the public reports are true and there was a time that Paul Manafort was under a FISA warrant before coming to the Trump campaign why is it that the FBI never reached out to me as a campaign manager, never reached out to Donald Trump to say look you might want to pause for a second and take a look before you take this guy on as a volunteer to hunt delegates for you. They never did that. He was under a FISA warrant supposedly before and after his tenure at the campaign. And the FBI never notified the leading presidential candidate for a major Republican Party race? Never notified him of a potential problem? This is a problem with the FBI if you ask me.
