I didn't bother to respond, but maybe you would like to explain 'marching orders". We all know prior to election of Trump Ukraine had an extreme hatred for Trump and would do anything to help out the old bag. So Ms. Chalupa who also hated Trump got the skinny on Manafort to hurt Trump in the 2016 election. Either you are blinded by your support of Clinton and not smart enough to figure it all out, but both Russia and Ukraine were involved in our 2016 election.They don’t even try to disguise it any more
Alexandra Chalupa, debunking Ukrainian election interference
Manafort has been the target of the FBI since 2014 documents filed by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team show that the FBI interviewed Manafort in March 2013 and July 2014. Past reports have said Manafort first became a target in 2014.
Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been on the FBI’s radar for years — dating back to 2013 when he was doing consulting work for the pro-Russian government of Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych.www.washingtonexaminer.com
Manafort worked for the former Ukrainian President Yanukovich until he fled Ukraine to go to Russia. He served as Ukrainian President from February 2010 until his removal from power in February 2014 as a result of the 2014 Ukrainian revolution. He is currently in exile in Russia and wanted by Ukraine for high treason.
A Ukrainian American, a Ms. Alexandra Chalupa, a lawyer by training, was in 2014 doing pro bono work for another client interested in the Ukrainian crisis and began researching Manafort’s roll in Yanukovych’s rise, as well as his ties to the pro-Russian oligarchs who funded Yanukovych’s political party. This is way before Manafort started with for the Trump campaign. Manafort didn't start working for Trump until June 2016.
Chalupa told Politico she had developed a network of sources in Kiev and Washington, including investigative journalists, government officials and private intelligence operatives. While her consulting work at the DNC this past election cycle centered on mobilizing ethnic communities — including Ukrainian-Americans — she said that, when Trump’s unlikely presidential campaign began surging in late 2015, she began focusing more on the research, and expanded it to include Trump’s ties to Russia, as well.
In January 2016 — months before Manafort had taken any role in Trump’s campaign — Chalupa told a senior DNC official that, when it came to Trump’s campaign, “I felt there was a Russia connection,” Chalupa recalled. “And that, if there was, that we can expect Paul Manafort to be involved in this election,” said Chalupa, who at the time also was warning leaders in the Ukrainian-American community that Manafort was “Putin’s political brain for manipulating U.S. foreign policy and elections.”
This lady was right about Manafort. She did tell the DNC but they didn't use the information and did not include it in any dossier. They didn't do anything with the information. Manafort had left the campaign in August 2016 because of the FBI investigation that related to his activities before he became Trump's campaign manager.
It is interesting to note that it was Roger Stone that recommended Manafort for the job of his campaign chairman (see page 134 https://www.justice.gov/storage/report.pdf )
Mueller documents show Manafort pushed Ukraine conspiracy theory.
Look at the situation both Roger Stone and Manafort are in now. Trump only picks the best people.
April 23, 2019, Manafort goes directly to prison, does not pass Go, does not collect his 20 million in bribery and corruption money.
- March 28: Manafort joins the Trump campaign, tasked with wrangling delegates for the convention.
- Spring 2016: A new FBI investigation into Manafort is opened, relating to his business ties to foreign countries, including Russia, per the NY Times.
- May 19: Manafort is promoted to campaign chairman.
On March 7, 2019, Judge T.S. Ellis sentenced Manafort to 47 months in prison. On March 13, 2019, Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced Manafort to an additional 43 months in prison. Minutes after his sentencing, New York state prosecutors charged Manafort with sixteen state felonies.
