First on CNN: Feds investigate Manafort firm as part of Ukraine probe

Source: CNN.com

Washington (CNN)FBI and Justice Department prosecutors are conducting an investigation into possible US ties to alleged corruption of the former pro-Russian president of Ukraine, including the work of Paul Manafort's firm, according to multiple US law enforcement officials.

The investigation is broad and is looking into whether US companies and the financial system were used to aid alleged corruption by the party of former president Viktor Yanukovych.

Manafort, who resigned as chairman of Donald Trump's campaign Friday, has not been the focus of the probe, according to the law enforcement officials. The investigation is ongoing and prosecutors haven't ruled anything out, the officials said.

Anti-corruption investigators in Ukraine have alleged Yanukovych and members of his party ran a corrupt regime. He fled to Russia following a public uprising in 2014.

The FBI, Justice Department and Manafort declined to comment. A Washington attorney who represents Manafort and Yanukovych didn't respond to a request for comment.

3. This will spread to reveal all the unseemly things he's done over the last few decades....

...with respect to his construction business. To put it mildly, he hasn't been a choir boy when it comes to "dealing with" and "disciplining" people.

12. republican party is a vast criminal enterprise

I've been waiting for the FBI to lower the boom on Manafort for being an unregistered agent of a foreign country. Republicans will stoop ever so low to make money. Manafort resigned Trump's campaign so he can cook up a defense against getting indicted.

16. What about that Russian money invested in Trump properties?

Money laundering? I think it is a distinct possibility. Maybe Manafort facilitated it. Follow the money!
