On Monday, an indictment was in the cards for President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort. It wasn’t long before the FBI took him away and Manafort found himself under the watchful eye of special counsel investigation by Robert Mueller. Although Mueller was striving for evidence on Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia, hence the Trump dossier, no proof or relation was mentioned in the report Mueller provided for remaining authorities.
Still, even after Manafort admitted to being guilty, a Secret Service agent who served former President Barack Obama came forward with an announcement many found difficult to process.
It was said that back in May, Robert S. Mueller commenced his ongoing investigation on President Trump, looking into any apparent connections between him and Russia. The reported ‘collusion’ had in mind if you ask the liberals, that is, to change the outcome of the 2016 presidential elections in Trump’s favor.
However, not six months had gone by before another report suggested Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign along with the Democratic National Committee (DNC) funded and asked for the research on Trump and Russia, thus delivering the Trump Dossier to America.
Hillary and her associates were quite hopeful to dig up some dirt on Trump that could put his presidency in jeopardy. But, what was actually uncovered was that Hillary gave 20 percent of the U.S.’s uranium, which was a story meant to remain under the radar. It was, in fact, Trump’s dossier hype that was supposed to be a camouflage for Clinton;s wrongdoings.
Then, many tried connecting Trump to Manafort’s indictment, although the latter was taken in on charges of funneling money through overseas shell companies, using them to purchase luxury cars, real estate, antiques, and lavishing expensive suits.
“Manafort used his hidden overseas wealth to enjoy a lavish lifestyle in the United States without paying taxes on that income,” the indictment reads. “As part of the scheme, Manafort and Gates repeatedly provided false information to financial bookkeepers, tax accountants, and legal counsel, among others.”
Although it is obvious Manafort should take the blame for everything he’s done, taking this story as a cover-up to steer everyone’s attention away from Hillary Clinton’s Uranium One affair, is troubling. I would even dare as to count how many times will the media outlets mention this story, as opposed to Manafort’s indictment one.
As former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, who worked under Obama and previously under George W. Bush, the Monday indictment of Manafort was strategically timed by “desperate” Democrats.
“Don’t be distracted for a moment by liberal-media hackery regarding the Manafort indictment (Note: Trump’s name doesn’t even appear in the Manafort indictment). This is STILL about the DNC-Clinton-Obama collusion with the Russians to target Trump and his campaign,” Bongino explained on Facebook.
“The Democrats are DESPERATE to keep your mind away from the growing scandal that implicates them in a major international scandal for buying fake information from the Russians which was used to brief President Obama and may have been used by the FBI as a pretext for a counter-intelligence investigation against the Trump campaign,” he added. “Don’t fall for this nonsense.”
Republican political entity, Jack Posobiec, sided with Bongino, writing himself, “I’m told Mueller and Rosenstein scrambled to push up Manafort tax charges immediately after Uranium One FBI story broke.”
Nothing seems quite right about this timeline. Even though Manafort should respond for his deeds, using his story as the perfect derailing tactic is not acceptable. Hillary Clinton has been getting away from murder in such manner on so many occasions earlier, and it is about time someone called her out on it. Better yet, let’s bring back decent journalism on the small screens as well.
