1. Oh, Kilimnik... Konstantin Kilimnik. remember him? He's the one who was working directly with Manafort and Gates. A "former Russian intelligence officer (There's no such thing, once RU intelligence always RU intelligence).
2. Van der Zwaan (yes the Dutch attorney who is serving prison time for lying to Mueller) is the one who confirmed, via HIS PHONE RECORDS that Gates and Manafort were working directly with Kilimnik. And not by themselves, but FOR TRUMP, in case it isn't clear.
3. Kilimnik (who is person no. TWENTY in Mueller's investigation to face charges for those who keep score) and Manafort face two counts of obstruction of justice and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice. They worked together to tamper with witnesses.
4. Per last night's NY story, two of the witnesses, who had worked with Manafort to "promote" Ukrainian former President Yanukovich, are Alan Friedman (an American journalist working here in Italy, and no I never liked him) and Eckart Sager.
5. Unfortunately for Manafort, Friedman and Sager are NOT traitors, despite having worked with him in the past, so when Manafort and Kilimnik tried to make them lie to Mueller, they reached out to Mueller instead and told him the whole story. Bloop!
6. Friedman accused Manafort of trying to "suborn perjury" by persuading him to lie to investigators. That's according to a declaration by an FBI agent on the case, per last night's NYT story.…
7. Based on Friedman's testimony, plus Sager's, AND Van der Zwaan's evidence, Manafort is, how do we put it, FRITTO as we say in Italian. This is why Mueller is requesting to revise terms of Manafort's bail and send him to jail while he awaits trial in July.
8. Manafort has already been charged with conspiracy against the US, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading FARA statements and false statements. How's it going Paulie? And wait...
9. The above charges do NOT include the National Security crimes part, you know the strict "conspiracy with Russia/others" part, that Mueller is yet to indict him for, and rest assured? IT IS COMING. So sit comfortably, get snacks and a drink. The show just got started. /END
