KIEV, Ukraine — After his name surfaced last August in a secret ledger listing millions of dollars in payments from a pro-Russian party in Ukraine, Paul Manafort not only lost his job running Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign but also assumed center stage in a bizarre internecine struggle among Ukrainian political forces.

On Monday, the intrigue took another turn, when a member of Parliament in Ukraine released documents that he said showed that Mr. Manafort took steps to hide the payments, which were tied to Mr. Manafort’s work for former President Viktor F. Yanukovych. The documents included an invoice that appeared to show $750,000 funneled through an offshore account and disguised as payment for computers.

And the hits keep coming. Sounds like investigators are looking through Manafort finances.

Or maybe this is fake news as according to Spicer, Manafort only played a limited role in the campaign.

Well he had a very very very very minor role for a very very short very period of time. So I'm sure he was just really into computers, independent of everything.

Very short.
Very very minor.

Can't believe there are so many trump friends with Russian ties that Manafort has been pretty much ignored for the most part. Just on his own it was more than enough to be concerned about Trump's loyalties, crazy where we're at now.

Lizard men!

Federal investigators are examining whether far-right news sites played any role last year in a Russian cyber operation that dramatically widened the reach of news stories — some fictional — that favored Donald Trump's presidential bid, two people familiar with the inquiry say.

We need need every intelligence agency to step there game up to the highest level. Between them and the courts they seem to be the only thing for keeping the U.S. from turning into a totalitarian state.

And we have found some fire. We had a lot of smoke in the last few months, but this is concrete. I hope it gets in the FBI investigation. I am just hopeful no one kills the investigation.

Kind of sucks this is from 2009. If it happened during the campaign it would be a much bigger deal. Guy is clearly a Russian stooge either way but this isn't the fire we need.
