The left is going to be really disappointed when they read the whole indictment of former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort. Early reports from CNN and other left-wing media outlets were downright jubilant in their hopes that this would bring down President Trump.

But that’s not going to happen.

In fact, there is nothing in the indictment that leads to President Trump, his campaign, or his family. Also, there is NOTHING in the indictment about Russian collusion. It looks like everything that he is being charged with occurred prior to joining the Trump campaign. This is what we know from the indictment:

“Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business associate, Rick Gates, have been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of conspiracy against the United States and other felony charges.

“The indictments unsealed Monday in Washington contain 12 counts, including conspiracy to launder money, failing to register as a foreign agent, false statements, and multiple counts of failing to file reports for foreign bank accounts.”

And there is no mention of Russian collusion or Donald Trump:

It looks like Manafort did some shady things but there is no connection to Russia or the Trump campaign:

And even though CNN is trying to spin this as some sort of Russian super conspiracy, the facts don’t justify it:

Here is the full indictment:

    The money in question was used to buy CLOTHES? Are youshitting me? All this is about clothes? How ludicrous!

  • supergun

    Money deals can be made legally if disclosed. Not illegal to make money from foreign transactions. Money laundering charges only pertain to money gotten by criminal means. There were no tax evasion charges. 4th Amendment violated. These charges have nothing to do with his appointment to investigate Russian collusion. And collusion is not an illegal act to begin with. What is going on here?

      Oh Yeah! The Demoncraps are joyful, believing, once again, they have President Trump. When is Trump going to act like BO and make everyone who opposes him held accountable for their actions, Hillary, BO, and all the Communist/Socialist in that party? I am sick of the Soros money and Marxist Media trying to destroy our country.

    This is a major deflection from the REAL crisis developing around Dame Hillary plus her ilk. Once the investigation distills into a harmless puddle, the backlash against Klinton and Kompany should be enormous (or yuge). If the treasonous Demonrats had any sense of self-preservation, they would depart the United States for lands elsewhere never to return. Let them fly their private jets, let them bring their pets with them, let them keep their overseas bank accounts. Just do not let them back into the country. And if they do return, indict, try and convict then sentence them to the maximum extent possible.

    This man did not do anything in dealings with Trump. Plus he lasted, what, about 4 months if that long; and Trump fired him, probably because he felt shady things were about to happen. Trump runs everything clean….always has as a business man. Even the casino’s, nothing shady in any way. This is why GOD picked TRUMP to save America. He is the new Cyrus for the new Babylon, which America surely is now. But TRUMP will make America great again soon as we get the corrupt dems, media and rhinos out of D.C. so honesty can take hold. GOD bless TRUMP and GOD bless AMERICA.

    The communist are ruthless


    Now when is the focus going to the people who were actually creating crimes like Hillary Clinton and her cronies.

    No surprise here. I have commented again and again the Mueller must publicly delimit the nature and scope of his investigation. He has not done so. So where is his mandate to pursue these influence peddling crimes? These special counsel investigations always grow like aggressive cancer, in unexpected ways, but very fast.
