Mueller Claims Manafort Made More Than $60 Million in Ukraine – What About Tony Podesta?

In a new court filing Monday, Dirty cop Robert Mueller claimed Trump’s former campaign chair Paul Manafort made over $60 million as a consultant in Ukraine.

This is the first time Mueller has disclosed an actual figure in the Manafort case; the bank fraud and tax fraud case in Alexandria, VA begins Tuesday.

Mueller is accusing Manafort of failing to pay taxes on a large portion of his tax returns.

What the hell does this have to do with Russian collusion during the 2016 election?

The Hill reported:

Mueller said government prosecutors expect to prove that Manafort earned the money and failed to report a significant percentage of it on his tax returns. The filing is the first time a tally of Manafort’s earnings in Ukraine has been revealed.

“No ‘pay stubs’ or ‘paychecks’ reflect that income, rather, the invoices and bills submitted by various consultants provide proof on that issue,” he said in the filing.

“Accordingly, to prove that Manafort earned that much income, the government must be able to show the extent of the work that he performed for Ukraine.”

Mueller is fighting Manafort’s request for the court to exclude more than 50 trial exhibits that relate to his political consulting work in Ukraine between 2005 and 2014.

Mueller said the challenged exhibits, which include a memoranda, emails and photos reflecting tasks performed, are relevant to establish the extent of Manafort’s work.

Judge T.S. Ellis granted five witnesses immunity in the bank fraud and tax fraud case which begins Tuesday, July 31st on the condition their names would be released to the public.

Tony Podesta was let off the hook and given immunity in the DC case where Manafort is being charged for failing to file a FARA form for his Ukrainian lobbying efforts.

The now-defunct Podesta Group made millions of dollars (or more) off of its business dealings with Ukraine and other countries, so why isn’t Mueller digging into Tony Podesta’s offshore accounts and tax returns?

Bernie Sanders’ top chief strategist, Tad Devine is another Democrat who was also let off the hook by Mueller even though he worked with Manafort in Ukraine.

Further proof Paul Manafort is being hunted down like an animal by Mueller because of his association with Donald Trump.
