MORE LEAKS: Deep State Focusing on Paul Manafort and “Suspicious” Wire Transfers
Amid reports Special Counsel Robert Mueller is set to file charges on Monday, we now learn the FBI’s investigation into former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is centered around “suspicious” wire transfers.
The series of transfers were previously unreported and caught the attention of law enforcement “as far back as 2012,” — Three years before Donald Trump announced his candidacy for President. The report on Manafort comes from BuzzFeed News, and therefore, should be read with a grain of salt.
The FBI’s investigation of Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, includes a keen focus on a series of suspicious wire transfers in which offshore companies linked to Manafort moved more than $3 million all over the globe between 2012 and 2013.
Much of the money came into the United States.
These transactions — which have not been previously reported — drew the attention of federal law enforcement officials as far back as 2012, when they began to examine wire transfers to determine if Manafort hid money from tax authorities or helped the Ukrainian regime close to Russian President Vladimir Putin launder some of the millions it plundered through corrupt dealings.
As the political world waits with with bated breath for Mueller’s charges, the identity of the individual (s) charged is not known at this time. It is plausible former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is among them. The former Trump campaign manager says he knows nothing about Mueller possibly filing charges against him.
Independent UK reports:
Donald Trump’s former campaign Paul Manafort has said he has not been informed of any possible criminal charges against him, after it was reported the first indictments had been filed by the team investigating Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 election.
Reports said a grand jury working with Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, had approved the first charges to result from the ongoing probe that is looking at possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. The reports, which have not specified what the charges are or who they were filed against, said a suspect could be taken into custody as soon as Monday.
According to reports, Manafort’s realtor, who helped the former Trump official purchase a Virginia condo, appeared by a judge to testify in Mueller’s Russia investigation.
As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, former Trump campaign aides believe things are not looking good for Paul Manafort concerning Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Associates believe Manafort may go down for an array of financial crimes.
Washington Post reported the FBI raided former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s Alexandria home late last month. A New York Times report alleges the FBI seized “tax documents and foreign banking records.”
