I love when we get updates on all of these traitors who have already been indicted in the Special Counsel’s Trump-Russia investigation. Paul Manafort was one of the first dominos to fall, and it’s widely believed that he’s already partially sold out Donald Trump and some of the Trump family peeps, like Jared Kushner. But it’s also believed that Robert Mueller wants to “flip” Mueller even further, and get Mueller to dump out his purse on every single person he’s ever made a shady deal with, from dictators to despots to Ukrainians to Americans. Manafort has been reticent to sell out some of his high-paying Ukrainian contacts though. And now this:

President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, who has been indicted by U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, attempted to tamper with potential witnesses, Mueller said in a court filing on Monday. Mueller, who is investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, asked the judge overseeing the case in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to revoke or revise an order releasing Manafort ahead of his trial. Manafort was released to home confinement after his arraignment in October.

Mueller has indicted Manafort in federal courts in Virginia and Washington, D.C., with an array of allegations from money-laundering and failing to register as a foreign agent, to bank and tax fraud. Manafort has pleaded not guilty.

FBI Special Agent Brock Domin, in a declaration filed with Mueller’s motion, said Manafort had attempted to call, text and send encrypted messages in February to two people from “The Hapsburg Group,” a firm he worked with to promote the interests of Ukraine. The FBI has documents and statements from the two people, as well as telephone records and documents recovered through a search of Manafort’s iCloud account showing that Trump’s former campaign manager attempted communication while he was out on bail, according to Domin.

The communications were “in an effort to influence their testimony and to otherwise conceal evidence,” Domin wrote. “The investigation into this matter is ongoing.”

Tampering with witnesses is a big deal, but how f–king dumb is Paul Manafort? He got millions of dollars from illegal lobbying, he was working for foreign governments AS HE WAS TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN MANAGER, and then to top it all off, he’s tampering with witnesses from encrypted messages as he’s
