oops Manafort lawyers expose collusion claim

(The information was accidentally revealed because of poor redactions by Manafort’s legal team.)

HuffPost

WASHINGTON ― Attorneys for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort accidentally revealed in a court filing Tuesday that the special counsel team led by Robert Mueller has alleged their client lied about sharing polling data with a Russian operative.

Manafort’s lawyers ― in a poorly redacted court filing responding to the special counsel’s claim that Manafort broke his September 2018 plea agreement by lying to investigators ― inadvertently revealed that Mueller’s team alleged that “Manafort lied about sharing polling data with [Konstantin Kilimnik] related to the 2016 presidential campaign.”

The filing also reveals some details of Mueller’s allegations about Manafort’s contacts with the Trump administration, including the allegation that Manafort texted with a third party who wanted permission to use Manafort’s name if he met President Donald Trump, which Manafort’s team says doesn’t count as outreach to the president. Another example, the filing states, is “hearsay purportedly offered by an undisclosed third party and the defense has not been provided with the statement (or any witness statements that form the basis for alleging intentional falsehoods).”

4. Conspiracy to collude...guilty!

This is the proof that Manafort gave crucial and specific polling info to Russia to aid them in targeting certain groups in their social media campaign during the campaign in the Summer of 2016. Cambridge Analytical, Bannon and the Mercers as well as Kushner, are all involved in Russian plans to use social media to harm Clinton and promote tRump. This data was especially useful to target voters in PA, MI and WI where Hillary lost by only a small amount. This allowed tRump to get the advantage and those electoral college votes.

This is proof of collusion or conspiring to collude. Manafort is more afraid of getting hurt by Putin than he is about going to jail and Mueller. Even facing serious jail time and having his assets seized is preferable to being hurt (and his family too).
