Those involved in the lobbying gave conflicting accounts to AP over the details. Tony Podesta said his group worked simultaneously with Gates and the Ukrainian nonprofit, and that Manafort was not involved. But Gates told the AP that both he and Manafort were working for Yanukoyvch's Party of Regions.

Paul Manafort, a senior aide to U.S. GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, has resigned after being pushed aside, the campaign confirmed on Friday. Earlier this week, Trump brought in Stephen K. Bannon, chairman of the Breitbart News website, as his campaign's chief executive, pushing aside Manafort, who had been headed the campaign. "This morning Paul Manafort offered, and I accepted, his resignation from the campaign. I am very appreciative for his great work in helping to get us where we are today, and in particular his work guiding us through the delegate and convention process. Paul is a true professional and I wish him the greatest success," said Donald Trump in a statement.

He probably signed a non-disclosure agreement. I'm guessing they had a contract so Trump couldn't just fire him, only make him obsolete. It's the "make them unhappy so they leave" method of cleaning house.
I'm guessing we won't have any expose from him anytime soon.
After praising Manafort for helping his father's campaign through the tough primaries, Eric Trump ladded, "But again, my father just didn’t want to have the distraction looming over the campaign and quite frankly looming over all the issues that Hillary’s facing right now."
