    Giuliani consulted on Ukraine with imprisoned Paul Manafort via a lawyer

    Giuliani consulted on Ukraine with imprisoned Paul Manafort via a lawyer

    In his quest to rewrite the history of the 2016 election, President Trumpís personal attorney has turned to an unusual source of information: Trumpís imprisoned former campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

    Rudolph W. Giuliani in recent months has consulted several times with Manafort through the federal prisonerís lawyer in pursuit of information about a disputed ledger that would bolster his theory that the real story of 2016 is not Russian interference to elect Trump, but Ukrainian efforts to support Hillary Clinton.

    The relationship, which Giuliani acknowledged in an interview this week with The Washington Post, stems from a shared interest in a narrative that undermines the rationale for the special counsel investigation. That inquiry led to Manafortís imprisonment on tax and financial fraud allegations related to his work in Kiev for the political party of former president Viktor Yanukovych.
    Only the best people folks!

    Two people can't talk with each other though one of them is in prison for personal financial dealings nothing to do with anything? I fail to see a problem here.

    Manafort is in prison because he was Trump's campaign manager so the FBI investigated him and found some crimes in his past before he ever worked for Trump. This is what it's come to in politics with the FBI and CIA getting involved.

    Oh so you have no problem with collusion now?
    The next few days are going to be a category Level 5 hurricane of trolls, bots, conspiracy theories, fake stories, hoaxes, and hit jobs. MAGA-land is in panic mode, and it will be ugly. Be careful, be skeptical, share good stuff, report bad stuff, and don't argue with idiots.

    Is that sarcasm or should I pretend like that's a good faith description of what's going on?

    A guy talking with a lawyer isn't collusion. What's collusion anyway and why is it bad if people talk to each other? Guess it's collusion if it's people you don't like.

    I agree, and Giuliani should ask Manafort all about prison. He's going to be going there soon.

    Yes, except lawyers can not be conduits for crime. What is described herein is not a lawyer helping his client with legal matters. That is righteous. It sounds more like the lawyer being used as means of communication. Depending upon what is being communicated, that could be corruption. That will get the lawyer dis-barred.

    That all said, I think Rudy's days as an attorney are coming to a close.
