Manafort is free on million bond, and Gates agreed to million.
Both are on 'home confinement' as a condition of their pretrial release and have surrendered their passports.
Odd he hasn't indicted any Democrats yet for collusion, isn't it?
Manafort and Gates have both pled not guilty to the charges.
Well, Robert Mueller finally dropped his explosive indictments.
And his lame indictments not only have all the power of a wet firecracker, but they tell us something we already know..the real collusion with Russia during the campaign came from the Democrats.
The Famous But Incompetent set a trap for someone who was a foreign policy adviser and a peripheral figure in the Trump campaign who had unauthorized contact with a professor and perhaps some other people connected to the Russian government, and who may have tried to set up a meeting, which never happened.
Moreover, someone connected with the Trump campaign told Papadodoulos that he could make the trip if he wanted to. None of this is illegal, although the way the Dems and their media allies are carrying on about this, you'd think they caught Papadodoulos green lighting Russian control over a big part of America's uranium production or divulging our secret missile defense technology to them.And of course, material for the Left's fever swamp mentality...let's call it the legend of a unicorn rather than a real one that actually exists.This nonsense is what Mueller and his pals have spent a year and millions of taxpayer dollars putting together.It's high time this travesty was ended, and that Jeff Sessions appointed a special prosecutor to go after the people really involved with collusion with Russia.And that likely includes Robert Mueller, who has a few questions about the Uranium One scandal he needs to answer under oath.The charges against Manafort involve his lobbying work for Viktor Yanukovych, the former president of the Ukraine and one of Manafort’s former clients. Manafort is also accused of failing to have registered as a lobbyist for Yanukovych in violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (“FARA”). Clinton appear to have done in the Uranium One scandal, let alone the Fusion GPS scandal, this is hilarious.
