Tech savvy these guys aren't

Manafort may have left an incriminating trail because he couldn't figure out how to convert PDFs to Word documents.

1. Neither can I, at least not without a lot of strange characters in my Word documents.

We're talking technical manuals. I have to go back through them and make many, many corrections.

2. Not tech-savvy AND arrogant.

Even if you can't tell the difference between a PDF and a PDA, you should still be paranoid enough to want to see the document trail deleted/erased/shredded/burned/eaten and not splatted out over the Internet. Manafort wasn't just sloppy because he's a tech-doofus, but also because he's an arrogant asshole.

3. I skimmed the indictment and saw one instance where Gates got about 10% for a laundering.

30 million moved and he got 3, considering the legal exposure to Gates, that is a small cut. Gates had the tech down but not the legal savvy.
