Russian Probe: Interesting revelations from the Court documents on Manafort and Gates!

Left: Richard Gates
Right: Paul Manafort
In Center: Donald and Ivanka Trump

Well, the counts of criminal activity of these two gentlemen has now been known for a while, as the Special Counsel Robert Mueller have been investigating. Therefore, the revelations there of the money laundering done by Paul Manafort and Richard Gates is known. It is already established how they transferred funds from foreign accounts and laundered them through accounts in Cyprus and elsewhere. That was part of livelihood.

However, there was other more striking revelations in the Sentencing documents released this weekend or Friday. As it showed certain aspects of what the Special Counsel and their investigation believes, as they have collected statements, affidavits and evidence of conspiracy against the United States, misuse of the Foreign Agent Operations and others, that puts the former Campaign Manager and also close associate of President Trump into hot water.

We know that Manafort will struggle to defend himself in Court, as the government has successfully found evidence of the crimes committed, the counts of crimes and possible jail-time will be long. As the government have a striking assessment of the former political lobbyist, which they describes like this:

Based on his relevant sentencing conduct, Manafort presents many aggravating sentencing factors and no warranted mitigating factors. Manafort committed an array of felonies for over a decade, up through the fall of 2018. Manafort chose repeatedly and knowingly to violate the law— whether the laws proscribed garden-variety crimes such as tax fraud, money laundering, obstruction of justice, and bank fraud, or more esoteric laws that he nevertheless was intimately familiar with, such as the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). His criminal actions were bold, some of which were committed while under a spotlight due to his work as the campaign chairman and, later, while he was on bail from this Court” (Manafort Sentencing Memo, 22.02.2019).

What Manafort can anticipate is to spend lots of time in jail, as he has already been sentenced in another case and therefore, this one will pile up that one. His comrade in crimes, Gates, also had a released Sentencing Memo this weekend, as they both was partners. The vital information and plea deal, which Gates has followed. Would surely help the government also ease the sentences for Gates. If he was sentenced straight without a deal, he could spend up to 28 years in prison, but he made a plea deal and with that his estimated time is now between 57 months and 71 months. Which by all means are more favourable, than three decades behind bars for his actions.

However, what is striking in the Memo was this:

“In furtherance of the scheme, from 2006 until 2014, both dates being approximate and inclusive, Manafort and GATES engaged in a multi-million dollar lobbying campaign in the United States at the direction of Yanukovych, the Party of Regions, and the Government of Ukraine. Manafort and GATES did so without registering and providing the disclosures required by law” (Richard Gates Plea Agreement, 22.02.2019).

All of this proves how the associates close to the United States President operated. How they willingly did illegal and also was connected with foreign agents to change policies locally, without proper registration, while earning wealth on the illegal activity. They were not following the laws, while lobbying and also using schemes to the amount of $75 Million USD during the years. This shows to what extent the two partners did contact the Ukrainian and working for them.

With the knowledge that Yanukoych was the Ukrainian Puppet of Vladimir Putin. There is some connections there and also in the realm of Manafort. Which means even more for the collusion and proof of that at a later stage. Because the Manafort-Gates Operations for Kiev was most defninitly done on the mercy of Kremlin and the comrades there. That is just how they do, to control their sphere and who better to change a paradigm shift. Than having old political operatives to work for a better relations and make the regime looking nice then them. Right?

We can wonder if there will come up more or if the bullets, where things connects to the Individual One will be in reference in the unpublished report of the Special Counsel, but these sentences documents are showing the intent and also the long-term conspiracy, where they did illegal activity over a long time. Where both parties was willingly doing it and deliberate about it. No question about it, and it was profitable too!

That is all we need to know. Surely, Manafort and Gates will answer for this, but Gates gets off the hook for following up on his plea deal. Manafort on the other hand get into bigger issues, as he will answer for what he did do. Plus the counts his already sentenced to in another case. Therefore, Manafort is going to prison. It is just a matter of time. There are more the associates around Trump, that is one the way, this being Roger Stone, whose also implicated and even mentioned in the Court in the Documents of Manafort, as they are associates going back to the 1980s.

Therefore, the ones in the circle around the President is all getting closer, than comfort to Law Enforce. But that was their decision in the first place. When they violated the laws, while being involved in the politics and within the reach of power. Sooner or later, someone would get caught. Now it was them. Peace.

Russian Probe: Another indictment, this time its Roger Stone!

Certainly, the associates around President Donald J. Trump Campaign Team is in legal trouble. As the Special Counsel Robert Mueller are able to find criminal activity and illegal activity done by the Presidents Men. This is not news, but the web around is shutting down. Individual 1 has more and more people around him, whose either charged, plea deal or even indicted themselves. Therefore, he cannot say anymore, that it is lie. Since, the Court Evidence and Verdicts in Court are telling the story itself.

What is striking now, is that this has been in the waiting, as Roger Stone is following the likes of Paul Manafort, Gen. Michael Flynn, George Papadopolous, Richard Gates, Alex Van Der Zwaan and Michael Cohen. All of these are already in the system and on various charges. These are all people who worked together and was trusted men in the Presidential Candidate. Also, the reality, the Cohen was his Personal Lawyer/Fixer, Manafort the Trump Campaign Manager, Cohen the Campaign Aide, Flynn the National Security adviser and Papadopolous the Foreign Policy Adviser. Van Der Zwaan was connected with Gates and Manafort, who lied about that, therefore served time for doing so.

When you see all of that, sudden there comes another person into the picture. As all of them have done something criminal. Lying to congress or to Law Enforcement. Whatever it is, this shows what sort of men, the President is associated with. Men who has no issues with breaking the law. Now another of his close associates are in legal trouble. Today’s indictment says it all.

It says that Roger Stone did: “ During the summer of 2016, STONE spoke to senior Trump Campaign officials about Organization 1 and information it might have had that would be damaging to the Clinton Campaign. STONE was contacted by senior Trump Campaign officials to inquire about future releases by Organization 1” (…) “During his HPSCI testimony, STONE was asked, “So you have no emails to anyone concerning the allegations of hacked documents . . . or any discussions you have had with third parties about [the head of Organization 1]? You have no emails, no texts, no documents whatsoever, any kind of that nature?” STONE falsely and misleadingly answered, “That is correct. Not to my knowledge.” (…) “In truth and in fact, STONE had sent and received numerous emails and text messages during the 2016 campaign in which he discussed Organization 1, its head, and its possession of hacked emails. At the time of his false testimony, STONE was still in possession of many of these mails and text messages” (…) “The email from STONE on or about October 3, 2016 to the supporter involved with the Trump Campaign, which read in part, “Spoke to my friend in London last night. The payload is still coming.”; and” (…) “The emails on or about October 4, 2016 between STONE and the high-ranking member of the Trump Campaign, including STONE’s statement that Organization 1 would release “a load every week going forward.”” (District of Columbia – Indictment of Roger Stone Jr., 24.01.2019).

Why we know this is the real deal is because of the statement and the headlines made in 2016. This is not mere speculation made by the Special Counsel, the one with seven counts of crimes on his indictment, has been vocal about his connection to WikiLeaks and the way of play during the Campaign for Trump. As Jessie Hellmann reported on the October 2, 2016: “Roger Stone, a former adviser to the Republican nominee’s campaign, tweeted late Saturday night that Clinton will be “done.” “Wednesday @Hillary Clinton is done. #Wikileaks,” Stone tweeted. Wednesday@HillaryClinton is done. #Wikileaks. — Roger Stone (@RogerJStoneJr) October 2, 2016” (Jessie Hellmann – ‘Roger Stone: Wednesday will be end of Clinton’s campaign’ – The Hill).

With that in mind, there is also this, which was reported on Media Matters on the August 8, 2016; “QUESTIONER: With regard to the October surprise, what would be your forecast on that given what Julian Assange has intimated he’s going to do? ROGER STONE: Well, it could be any number of things. I actually have communicated with Assange. I believe the next tranche of his documents pertain to the Clinton Foundation but there’s no telling what the October surprise may be” (Media Matters – ‘Roger Stone Confirms That He’s In Communication With Julian Assange’ 09.08.2016).

So again, the internet doesn’t forget and neither does the Special Counsel. Mr. Stone was proud of his connection and that he knew about the damaging E-Mails that WikiLeaks had. Which was unleashed online and showed a negative side of the political campaigning done by the Democrats and the Hillary Clinton Campaign. Therefore, the indictment today proves yet again. The links between foreign advisories and the Trump Campaign.

The little drip drops proves it. The more the Special Counsel is showing the world, by every court paper becoming public. This shows what sort of slow process it is to prove in Court. However, Stone isn’t the first and not the last. As the Investigation continues and the web is getting closer to Individual 1. Peace.
