1. I don't know but I DO know this...those tight fisted skin flint russian

oligarchs don't pay millions of dollars for "polling information' they can get on the internet. If they can send out armies of internet trolls, theres some savvy going on there. They paid for processed gop info. And they unleashed the bot kraakens to exploit it.
Never again.

6. The Russians can micro target through social media

and that is illegal as well as hacking the Dems. Rep Nadler said that is how PA, WI, MI, etc were tricked into voting for tRump with false claims and info by Russian trolls and bots.

That was part of his job to do for them , and to work off his debt with so the russians could micro target area's for the win with for their puppet trump, who was already compromised by putin.

8. So Manafort was still working for the campaign after he was "fired" by feeding data to Russia?

When Kost Bondarenko, one of Manafort’s longtime Ukrainian associates, told the
Daily Beast, in May, 2017, that “Trump won because of Manafort,” this is what he
may have meant.

9. Good question!

In my opinion, the Russians wanted to see evidence of possible victories before they would donate money to the Trump campaign. Just my opinion.

10. Paulie was working off his debt. That's the only reason for taking the campaign position for no

salary when he was broke. He fed info to the Russians so they could manipulate the election and get Don elected so Don could start repaying his debt.

11. And never forget that Manafort picked Pence to be V.P. which means Putin picked Pence to be V.P.

13. from the link

Before Trump formally announced Pence as his vice presidential candidate, it was Manafort who made sure it happened, The New York Times reported last year.

Trump had hesitated to settle on Pence, who was governor of Indiana. Trump was fielding last-ditch appeals from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and publicly said he had not made a “final, final decision” until advisers like Manafort reminded him of the importance of uniting the GOP around conservative Christian values.

CBS News reported that Pence was Manafort's "first choice" and that Manafort even lied about mechanical problems on Trump's plane to make the soon-to-be GOP nominee stay an extra day in Indiana to get to know Pence. In a phone call, Manafort assured Trump that Pence was the right choice and made a case that won over the real estate tycoon.

The backpedaling began in March after it emerged that Manafort signed a multimillion-dollar contract in 2006 with a close associate of Vladimir Putin. Trump's team now claims that Manafort merely oversaw delegate operations and that Trump was not aware of Manafort's work for other governments, including Russia.
