Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has now been accused by Special Counsel Robert Mueller of tampering with witnesses. The Special Counsel wants him to be locked up for violations of his release agreement. Back in February, President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman entered a plea of not guilty as he faces charges he acted as an unregistered foreign agent and directed an international money-laundering conspiracy. You will note that none of these charges have anything to do with Russian collusion by the Trump campaign. You will also note that these charges pre-date any involvement with Donald Trump. The question that has to be considered is are these valid charges or is this another ploy by Mueller to get Manafort to roll over on Donald Trump? Read this and see what you think.

“That violation triggers a statutory presumption that no conditions or combinations of release conditions will assure the safety of the community and of others,” the filing reads.
Manafort, 69, was indicted by Mueller — who took over the federal Russia investigation in May 2017 — in both Washington, D.C., and Virginia.

Manafort has pleaded not guilty in both cases……..
