Paul Manafort: Trump former campaign manager not aware of possible criminal charges against him

Donald Trump’s former campaign Paul Manafort has said he has not been informed of any possible criminal charges against him, after it was reported the first indictments had been filed by the team investigating Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 election.

Reports said a grand jury working with Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, had approved the first charges to result from the ongoing probe that is looking at possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. The reports, which have not specified what the charges are or who they were filed against, said a suspect could be taken into custody as soon as Monday.

CNN, which broke the news, said the charges were filed on Friday and placed under a seal by a federal judge. Yet, that has not stopped a flurry of speculation as to who may be the focus of Mr Mueller’s charges and the nature of them.

2. I heard on MSNBC that Mueller fears a possible flight risk

which would explain the sealed indictment.

4. I wonder if the perps are being tailed,

Does Mueller have law enforcement staff at his command?

5. sealed means the target doesn't know

but someone on cable news (Corn, perhaps?) said that he has previously said he believed he would be indicted. I don't know the sourcing for any of that.

9. Right

Though that is a somewhat different point from his saying he expected to be indicted.

Thanks for the reminder.

8. I'd go with this disguise

 

No one would be able to tell this was Kushner/Manafort/Flynn.
