Mueller wants to pull Manafort’s bail deal

Here is the full indictment against former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort

Apparently he’s been doing what he was told not to do:

WASHINGTON ― Former Donald Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, while under federal indictment that could send him away to prison for years, recently ghostwrote an op-ed with a Russian with ties to the country’s intelligence services, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team alleged on Monday.

Manafort, currently on house arrest with an ankle monitor, had reached a proposed bail deal with prosecutors that was awaiting court approval. But Mueller’s team says the court should reject Manafort’s request to modify the conditions of his pre-trial release because he has violated a court order that instructed him and other parties to “refrain from making statements to the media or in public settings that pose a substantial likelihood of material prejudice to this case.”

Mueller’s team allege that Manafort and a colleague were “ghostwriting an editorial in English regarding his political work for Ukraine” as recently as Nov. 30.

    So Manafort knows a Russian intelligent agent well enough to have him ghost-write an opinion piece for him?

    We should all be that lucky.

    Will Manafort be paying this Russian intelligent agent and friend, Mr. X, a substantial fee for this literary contribution?

    We truly have gone through the looking glass.
