ICYMI: Experts Say Manafort's Real Estate Deals "Fit Pattern Used in Money Laundering" Schemes

Mar 28, 2017

A new report from WNYC today is raising further questions about Paul Manafort’s ties to Russian oligarchs and Putin allies, this time stemming from real estate dealings that experts say fit a pattern used in money laundering schemes.

In response to this new report, American Bridge spokesperson Sabrina Singh released the following statement:

“The $12 million in question here just so happens to be nearly the exact amount of money Manafort allegedly received from former pro-Russian president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych in undisclosed cash payments. And those are the same payments that, once revealed, forced his resignation from the Trump campaign.  Does anyone seriously believe that’s just a coincidence?

“These latest developments can’t be ignored. Now more than ever we need a 9/11 style, independent commission investigating this scandal in order to ensure transparency and accountability on behalf of the American people.”

Earlier today, Bridge Project released a new ad on Paul Manafort, chronicling the former Tump campaign chairman’s resignation after it was discovered that he may have accepted $12.7 million in undisclosed payments from the former Ukrainian president.  Bridge Project also released a Medium post outlining how Trump’s former campaign chair fits into Trump’s tangled Russian web.
