President Trump Responds to Manafort Conviction “Nothing to do With Russian Collusion” (VIDEO)
“NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIAN COLLUSION” – President Trump
President Trump responded Tuesday afternoon after a jury found his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort guilty on 8 felony counts.
The President spoke to the press shortly after he landed in Charleston, West Virginia as he headed to his rally.
“It doesn’t involve me but I still feel really sad…you know it’s a very sad thing that happened. This has nothing to do with Russian collusion. This started as Russian collusion…this has absolutely nothing to do…this is a witch hunt and it’s a disgrace,” Trump said.
President Trump also said that he feels very bad for Paul Manafort. “He worked for Bob Dole, he worked for Ronald Reagan…” Trump continued.
The President didn’t answer any questions about his former lawyer Michael Cohen who just pleaded guilty to 8 counts; his plea deal includes 3-5 years jail time.

After four days of deliberations, the jury reached a verdict on 8 counts and could not make a decision on 10 counts in the tax evasion and bank fraud case against Paul Manafort.
Judge Ellis declared a mistrial on 10 counts. The jury found Manafort guilty on 8 counts.
Both Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort were hunted down by Mueller and his thugs because of their association with Donald Trump.
We currently have a two-tiered justice system because AG Sessions is AWOL.
One set of laws for Trump and his supporters and another set of laws for Democrats and Clinton-Deep State cronies.
