The Darker Side Of Paul Manafort

March 11, 2017

Alleged text messages point to possible influence that President Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort had with Ukraine’s President during turmoil there in 2014. 

“You know he has killed people in Ukraine? Knowingly,” Paul Manafort’s daughter Andrea allegedly wrote of her father in March 2015 in a series of texts to her sister about her father’s personal and professional life.

“Remember when there were all those deaths taking place. A while back. About a year ago. Revolts and what not,” Andrea allegedly wrote in reference to mass police shootings in Kiev.

Manafort has not been linked to the shootings.

On Thursday, Ukrainian human rights lawyer Eugenia Zakrevska filed a motion in Kiev requesting that prosecutors verify the contents of the text messages and take measures to compel US authorities to question Manafort.
