EDIT & FYI:

In 2006, the year he reportedly began working for Deripaska, Manafort bought a condo in Trump Tower for $3,675,000 through an LLC called John Hannah. John is Manafort’s middle name, and Hannah is the middle name of that of his then-business partner, Rick Davis.

And it looks like Mueller is going to start at the beginning and move towards the present.

Hopefully in Mueller's sights are money laundering, trump kids, trump's real estate empire, direct action in this election.

This is Big Picture stuff.

if Charles R. Black, Jr. was also involved, given his relationship with Manafort & Stone and his having been a lobbyist for some rough folks.

Manafort's Indictment mentions year 2006 a lot:

38. From in or about and between 2006 and 2017, both dates being approximate and inclusive, in the District of Columbia and elsewhere, the defendants PAUL J. MANAFORT, JR., and RICHARD W. GATES III, together with others, knowingly and intentionally conspired to defraud the United States by impeding, impairing, obstructing, and defeating the lawful governmental functions of a government agency, namely the Department of Justice and the Department of the Treasury, and to commit offenses against the United States, to wit, the violations of law charged in Counts Three through Six and Ten through Twelve.

Donald is a big part of Manafort's indictment even though not mentioned by name!
