Former Trump campaign chairman snitched to the feds over Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer, The Daily Beast reports.
Manafort attended the meeting with Jared Kushner and others. They had been promised dirt on Hillary Clinton that never materialized.
Bloomberg first reported Manafort’s betrayal. Manafort is under serious pressure for his work in Russia in recent years (suspected of facilitating political murder), a real estate Ponzi scheme with his son-in-law, and he recently had his house raided by federal agents who were trying to secure documents related to the Russian investigation.
Manafort is reportedly cooperating with DOJ, despite fears that their investigation will extend far further than the 2016 election and Russian meddling/possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
