Ilya Marritz and Andrew Bernstein – WNYC:
Paul J. Manafort, the former Trump campaign manager facing multiple investigations for his political and financial ties to Russia, has engaged in a series of puzzling real estate deals in New York City over the past 11 years.
Real estate and law enforcement experts say some of these transactions fit a pattern used in money laundering; together, they raise questions about Manafort’s activities in the New York City property market while he also was consulting for business and political leaders in the former Soviet Union.
That’s Paul Manafort, campaign chairman and advisor to the man who became president of the United States.
It’s good that these bits and pieces of questionable filth are trickling out so soon after Mr. Trump took office, and before he and the Congressional GOP manage to get anything of substance done. The opportunity to remove and replace remains.
Drip, drip, drip.
