Palmer Report: Paul Manafort may be facing murder charges in Trump-Russia scandal

Donald Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort is currently under house arrest and he’s facing a dozen criminal charges that could land him in prison for the rest of his life. Even as Manafort tries to decide whether to stand trial or cut a deal against Trump, one might think that his life couldn’t get much worse. However, as it turns out, Manafort’s life may be about to get a whole lot worse, as he’s facing potential murder charges in relation to the Trump-Russia scandal.

Ukraine now says that when Paul Manafort was working over there to get a Russian puppet elected, he was involved in a plot to get protesters killed for political gain, according to a Daily Beast report (link). To be clear, Special Counsel Robert Mueller can’t charge Manafort for these murders, as they took place against non-U.S. citizens outside the United States. However, Ukraine can charge Manafort and, assuming the U.S. isn’t willing to extradite him to stand trial because he’s currently too valuable to the Trump-Russia probe, Ukraine can try him in absentia on murder related charges. This complicates things significantly.

Even if Trump tries to pardon Manafort, and defeats the inevitable court challenge to the legitimacy of pardoning a co-conspirator, Manafort would still be facing a murder rap overseas. Ukraine and the U.S. do not have an extradition treaty for standing trial, but they do have an agreement regarding people who have already been convicted. So if Trump sets Manafort free, and if he then somehow gets off the hook for the state level charges he’s going to face in New York, he could still be shipped off to Ukraine to serve a prison sentence.

This would mean there would be little point in Donald Trump pardoning Paul Manafort. On the other hand, Manafort might be unwilling to cut a deal with Robert Mueller unless it includes assurances he’ll never be shipped to Ukraine. In any case, the Trump-Russia scandal is now so ugly, Trump’s campaign chairman may be facing murder charges.

Palmer Report: How the mainstream media spent ten months shielding Wilbur Ross from the Trump-Russia scandal

Today the mainstream media presented us with the “breaking news” that Donald Trump’s Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has financial connections to the Trump-Russia scandal. This is shocking not because of the details that are being reported today, but because this is ten month old news. In fact, Palmer Report brought you the story ten months ago, not based on any inside sourcing, but based on publicly available evidence. So why on earth has the mainstream media been shielding Wilbur Ross all this time? Now that the media is finally acknowledging Ross’s role, where does it go from here?

Back in February, when Donald Trump tapped Wilbur Ross to be his Secretary of Commerce, Palmer Report pointed out that Ross was the vice chairman of Bank of Cyprus. This came just one month after Deutsche Bank had been busted by US and European regulators for laundering billions of dollars of Russian money through Bank of Cyprus into the hands of clients in places like New York City. In turn, Deutsche Bank has spent the past several years loaning suspiciously large amounts of money to Donald Trump, even though most other banks had concluded he was a poor credit risk.

These pieces were never difficult to put together. Wilbur Ross used the bank of Cyprus to help Russia launder money into the hands of Donald Trump, and Trump returned the favor by making Ross the Secretary of Commerce. Yet the mainstream media, with a very small number of notable exceptions like Rachel Maddow, never bothered to report that Ross was a key player in the Trump-Russia scandal.

There is no reason to believe that the mainstream media cares about the fate of Wilbur Ross. It’s not as if they’ve been shielding him from the scandal because they like him. Instead, it appears they just weren’t ready to begin reporting on this narrative until after the initial arrests began. Maybe they didn’t think it was ratings worthy until now. But they’ve chosen now for a reason. Maybe now we’ll finally get to the bottom of it.

First charges filed in Mueller investigation
Washington (CNN)A federal grand jury in Washington on Friday approved the first charges in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources briefed on the matter.

The charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge. Plans were prepared Friday for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as Monday, the sources said. It is unclear what the charges are.
A spokesman for the special counsel’s office declined to comment.
Mueller was appointed in May to lead the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Under the regulations governing special counsel investigations, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has oversight over the Russia investigation, would have been made aware of any charges before they were taken before the grand jury for approval, according to people familiar with the matter.

On Friday, top lawyers who are helping to lead the Mueller probe, including veteran prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, were seen entering the court room at the DC federal court where the grand jury meets to hear testimony in the Russia investigation.
Reporters present saw a flurry of activity at the grand jury room, but officials made no announcements.
Shortly after President Donald Trump abruptly fired then-FBI Director James Comey, Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel. Mueller took the reins of a federal investigation that Comey first opened in July 2016 in the middle of the presidential campaign.

Mueller is authorized to investigate “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation,” according to Rosenstein’s order.
The special counsel’s investigation has focused on potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, as well as obstruction of justice by the President, who might have tried to impede the investigation. CNN reported that investigators are scrutinizing Trump and his associates’ financial ties to Russia.

Mueller’s team has also examined foreign lobbying conducted by former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former national security adviser Michael Flynn and others. His team has issued subpoenas for documents and testimony to a handful of figures, including some people close to Manafort, and others involved in the Trump Tower meeting between Russians and campaign officials.
Last year, the Comey-led investigation secured approval from the secret court that oversees the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to monitor the communications of Manafort, as well as former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, as part of the investigation into Russian meddling.
In addition to Mueller’s probe, three committees on Capitol Hill are conducting their own investigations.
CNN’s Marshall Cohen, Mary Kay Mallonee and Laura Robinson contributed to this report.
