After a CNN "source" revealed that former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort was actually "wire tapped", the whole Russian thing is again up in the air.

Rumors and innuendo flying everywhere.

Now apparently Manafort himself is asking for any and all transcripts of any and all "wire tapping" be released to the public !!

And if that's not enough, he also wants somebody to investigate and find out just WHO leaked all these leaks !!

There must be something brewing and Manifort is obviously under the advice of lawyers.

So what's this latest game ?


Manafort Calls On DOJ To Release His Intercepted Communications With Foreigners


Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is calling on the Justice Department to release transcripts of any intercepted communications he may have had with foreigners.

Manafort, a longtime Republican political consultant, also called on the Justice Department’s inspector general to investigate the leak of details of secret surveillance warrants obtained by U.S. investigators.

“Mr. Manafort requests that the Department of Justice release any intercepts involving him and any non-Americans so interested parties can come to the same conclusion as the DOJ — there is nothing there,” Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni said in a statement.

Is he oblivious to how an investigation works?


"Yeah we'll get right on that, Paul... Asap!"

Because according to Comey and Clapper, the transcripts don't exist!!


** The former FBI Director testified to Congress that he decided not to recommended charges in relation to handling of classified information, after the FBI interviewed Hillary Clinton on July 2, 2016. However, a new report reveals Comey penned a memo exonerating Clinton in the Spring.

** James Comey told the House Intelligence Committee that the Republican Party emails were not released during the 2016 election campaign. They were.

** And James Comey perjure himself after he just testified under oath in front of the House Intelligence Committee claiming that there was no truth to Trump’s wiretap claims. He lied then too.

** Former FBI Director James Comey said there were no documents on Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch’s tarmac meeting. Investigators later uncovered hundreds of documents.

And people wonder why he was fired.


Totally crooked.

Manafort resided in Trump Tower...

I'd say this is a bingo jackpot.

Trump was right again!

Like they're just going to hand them over. Does he actually think because he's on them he's entitled to them? His lawyer is a fool.

For what? This has been nothing from the start. A plot from the left to stir up lies.

If these wiretap tapes are going to be used as evidence in court, then they have to turn them over to his legal counsel. Duh

Not until the charges are filed.

They know damn good and well that they are not going to hand over the transcripts or release them publicly until the investigation is over or charges are filed.

That's why the calls for them to be released are ridiculous.

So... let me get this absolutely straight.

A figure who aided the effort to have elected, the most anti-immigrant, anti-foreigner, anti-humanity, anti-international cooperation President of recent memory, is upset that his communications with foreign figures were monitored?

The hypocrisy here is staggering. A look at the social structure that Trump and his legion of crap breathing goons would like to install in the United States, shows clearly that the ideal for them is a nation where everyone who falls outside a certain, narrow series of demographics, is to be mistrusted, maligned, scapegoated and inconvenienced, to make business as usual easier, while telling the people that things are changing, despite the fact that the only changes being made are those which will roll back the rights and liberties afforded to Americans generally.

And yet Manafort is complaining that his interactions with Ukrainian and Russian officials and personages have been monitored? Surely the man understands that, indeed, that kind of surveillance is precisely the sort which a nationalist and borderline fascist government, and every one of those who voted for it, whether they admit it or not, or are aware of it or not, are pushing for? The only thing that is remotely shocking about the matter, is that a Democrat administration operated it.

That is worth making a song and dance over, because it illustrates the right wing thinking of the administration preceding this one, makes a mockery of the idea that, at the elite level, there is any difference for the players, between the parts they play, whether they profess to be left or right of the middle.

Does he honestly believe that Trumps administration and the shady, swamp creatures which comprise it, are not also monitoring the activity of persons they ought not? Given Trumps track record as an operator of businesses, it is without a doubt that every dirty, low down, scummy, bottom feeding trick imaginable, is being pulled either by him directly, or more likely his witless progeny and his rogues gallery of confidants, to ensure that everything that can be known about those who oppose his disgusting ideology, is known.

Yea, it's best to just let the court of public opinion try and convict you, like they do with Flynn. Both Manifort and Flynn are communists and Russian agents right? I mean, that's what the news said.

well, you failed in getting it even close to straight. Quite crooked.

Manifort wants all the transcripts released to the public so everyone can see exactly what it is he is being charged with. It seems he knows his actions and conversations weren't quite what the MSM has been spinning.

When you look at US news, try to do so without the Trump hate in your head, it will help clear things up.
