Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was blackmailed over Russia ties after being hacked


A new report suggests that Paul Manafort, President Donald Trumpís former campaign manager, was the victim of a blackmail attempt by a Ukrainian parliament member who was aware of both Trumpís and Manafortís connections to President Vladimir Putin of Russia.

Manafort has ties to Russia that include his having worked for the pro-Russian former president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, and an FBI investigation of Trumpís connections to Russia may also examine Manafort. According to Politico, Manafortís daughter received a text from Serhiy Leshchenko, a member of the Ukrainian parliament, that threatened to expose Manafortís financial ties to Yanukyovych and an alleged meeting of Trump with Yanukyovych crony Serhiy Tulub.

4. that's right,

but with craven republicans running the show what are the chances? we can demand and demand and demand, but these fuckers don't care. they just don't care. they're proving that evil is real.
it's so discouraging but we cannot stop resisting and making their lives miserable until they know beyond a doubt that if they have any hope of staying in office, they need to respond to the people and fulfill the oaths they took to uphold the constitution of the united states of america. they are not doing that.
