Manaforts Daughters phone was hacked by Anonymous..and excerpts posted on the dark web..

Before anyone looks for the lazy ...close your eyes and shout "fake news"...Manafort confirmed the hack and text was real..

Which is strange, because it means he knew about the Ukranian ledgers having his name a month before they went public..But when they went public he said he knew nothing about them?

I suspect what has changed is the FBI letting him know what they know?..



A purported cyber hack of the daughter of political consultant Paul Manafort suggests that he was the victim of a blackmail attempt while he was serving as Donald Trump’s presidential campaign chairman last summer.

The undated communications, which are allegedly from the iPhone of Manafort’s daughter, include a text that appears to come from a Ukrainian parliamentarian named Serhiy Leshchenko, seeking to reach her father, in which he claims to have politically damaging information about both Manafort and Trump.




In a Tuesday interview, Manafort denied brokering a 2012 meeting between Trump and Tulub, also pointing out that he wasn’t working for Trump at the time.

However, Manafort did confirm the authenticity of the texts hacked from his daughter’s phone.




Manafort said that the first of the texts arrived shortly before The New York Times published an August expose revealing that the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine had obtained documents — which have since come under scrutiny — that appeared to show $12.7 million in cash payments earmarked for Manafort.

Obvious question for Trump..


Did he meet with Serhiy (Sergi) Tulub on June 17th 2012?

Who arranged the meeting and what was it's purpose?


Those are pretty easy questions...


Waiting on the WH to answer...

Found this...




Trump hired Manafort back in the '80s to lobby on gambling and real estate issues.


www.npr.org...


Which means Manafort and Trump certainly knew eachother for years before Manafort became his Campaign Manager..


Which directly contradicts what the WH Spokesperson said about this today..




But a White House official questioned the chronology supporting the claim, explaining that Trump had not worked with Manafort before the 2016 campaign.


From the politico article..

Truth over BS
Substance over flash..

Facts over appearances..

I don't disagree that "We look...BAD"...

But that is not the fault of people pointing at the elephant in the room.

We look bad due to the reality that is Trump...

FFS...I can't believe your solution is ...Look away!!

White House response: "Fake news! When have I lied to you?"

Trump supporters: "Fake news! Trump told us so!"

He wasn't working for Trump at the time, FAKE NEWS.



Washington (CNN) — If Donald Trump's campaign aides like Paul Manafort were contacting Russian officials during the campaign, then the President had nothing to do with it, claims former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

"If anybody crossed a line and gave information to a foreign agent or foreign government or foreign intelligence official, whether that's Paul Manafort or it's Rick Gates or anybody else, I hope they're held accountable," Lewandowski told David Axelrod on "The Axe Files," a podcast from the University of Chicago Institute of Politics and CNN.

He later added: "Any staffer who contacted or potentially contacted a Russian agent or a Russian official has done so on their own accord and not at the direction of the campaign, the President or anybody else in the administration."


Manafort took operational control of Trump's campaign after Lewandowski's dismissal -- only to resign two months later, in part due to Manafort's role as a political adviser in Ukraine.



Even Very Fake News CNN cannot pin anything on the Donald. The guy was in for only two months then fired for his shady connections.

The Donald got rid of him as soon as he learned he was a compromised person that would sabotage his campaign. More failed globalist attempts to undermine his candidacy. He was getting attacked at all levels in all possible ways, this was just one failed attempt to derail him. It was truly a miracle that Trump navigated through all of these opposition placed landmines.

You're completely right. How Un-American to want to know the details of the Presidents involvement with foreign interests. We should all just accept anything we're told by Donald Trump as gospel. Lord, where did I go wrong?

Right...Manafort was working for Putin's Oligarch in Ukraine at that time..But he also had worked for Trump before...Something the WH spokesperson seemed ...ahem..factually confused about today.

What exactly is fake about this story?

Seeing as Manafort has confirmed the hacked material?

Like Flynn, Trump only had him resign when it went public and he couldn't cover-it-up..

And Manafort's resignation was purely public show..

CIA is pretending to be anonymous now. Cool. Well anyone can do it I guess.



The undated communications, which are allegedly from the iPhone of Manafort’s daughter, include a text that appears to come from a Ukrainian parliamentarian named Serhiy Leshchenko, seeking to reach her father, in which he claims to have politically damaging information about both Manafort and Trump.


Because members of the CIA-connected and Pro-EU Bloc Poroshenko Party are so reliable.

The same people who lied to the United States and gave them fake pictures reporting a "massive Russian invasion"

Can't wait to see you next smear campaign thread personally. Always worth a laugh and a groan.

It's Fake because it is a hit piece trying to prove Trump of being compromised by association. Trump got rid of the one who was compromised after only a two month post at his job. Trump should be commended.

Look at Hillary, she had a Muslim Brotherhood mole working for her for decades as her most trusted employee. Trump gets a bad apple for 2 months then fires him and you want to take him down for it.

Hypocrisy is rampant.

Hmmm....

Is lying your occupation? Or are you just ignorant of the facts?

Manafort himself has confirmed the content of the hacks..

Manafort resigned because it got too hot in the press for him..

Trump brought Manafort back in to help select his cabinet once he won..

AND THIS IS INTERESTING...

The guy that sent this Blackmail text to Manafort did it a month before the story broke about Manafort and the ledgers..

Manafort resigned Aug 2016
The Blackmail text was presumably sent July or Sept 2016...

The guy who asked Manafort/Trump for money or else?


The real estate scandal
On September 6, 2016 was announced that Serhiy Leshchenko bought a luxury apartment in new building in the historic center of Kyiv area of 192 square meters 7.5 million (300 thousand dollars). According to his tax declaration he had no money to buy the appartment.

No surprise. Ukraine is corrupt as hell. Only oligarchs and corruption there. No surprise millions of Ukrainians left Ukraine since 1991. The less someone has to do with Ukraine, the better.
