Paul Manafort, President Trump’s onetime campaign chairman, is on trial in federal court in Alexandria on bank and tax fraud charges. Prosecutors allege that he failed to pay taxes on millions he made from his work for a Russia-friendly Ukrainian political party, then lied to get loans when the cash stopped coming in.
The case is being prosecuted by the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
This is just a sliver of the exposure Donald Trump’s family, friends and business associates have grudgingly had to bear, because their buddy ‘The Donald’ brought upon them when he was elected president.
Think of it this way, if you shine a light on a cockroach nest, they all scatter like bandits.
