Paul Manafort Pleads Guilty - Forced To Surrender Just About Everything

Paul Manafort, formerly President Donald Trump's campaign chairman, is expected to plead guilty to two counts, a federal conspiracy charge that accused him of money laundering, tax fraud, and lying to investigators, as well as a count of conspiracy to obstruct justice, according to a document filed in federal court.

A charging document filed Friday in the District of Columbia outlines accuses Manafort, 69, of participating in a conspiracy against the United States — money laundering, tax fraud, failing to file Foreign Bank Account Reports, violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act, and lying and misrepresenting to the Department of Justice.

The second charge, conspiracy to obstruct justice, is tied to his efforts to guide witness testimony after he was indicted last year.


Upon entering his guilty plea, Manafort will forfeit his home in the Hamptons, a property in New York City on Howard Street, a property in Brooklyn, and property on Edgewood Street in Alexandria, Virginia.

In addition, Manafort will forfeit all funds contained in four banking accounts, as well as a life insurance policy.

He is a tax fraudster and leaves the rest of us to pay more than our fair share. Now he has admitted it. Screw Manafort, he lost everything and is going to jail for a long time, and deserves all of that!

Nothing to do with Trump, not with Russia, not with taxes. Trump has paid lots of taxes, he isn't a tax fraudster like Manafort who should rot in jail.
