💥NEW: #Manafort lawyers argue for reduced sentence, attacking Mueller for "misinformation," "not being able to find Russian collusion," vilifying Manafort. Seems like a Hail Mary, angling for a pardon. IRONY: Manafort used vilification for years—as a sword. Now it's his shield.
This is rich: #Manafort says his life's work is "promoting democratic values" as a political consultant. He didn't even promote democratic values in US! He ran Reagan's Southern strategy. Abroad he worked mostly for dictators. Does he think Judge Ellis' clerks don't use Google??
#FridayFlashback #Manafort promoted propaganda smears for corrupt authoritarians—not "democratic values." THREAD on disinformation he planted to vilify political rivals of pro-Russia clients in Ukraine (against Tymoshenko) AND in US (against Clinton)
#MANAFORT lawyers filed a disinformation brief, painting him as a promoter of "democratic values" & echoing Trump's mantra "no collusion." FACT: Manafort helped dictators & kleptocrats get & retain power. That's his life's work & legacy. see @FranklinFoer slate.com/news-and-polit…
@FranklinFoer #Manafort's sentencing brief bombards Judge Ellis with "no collusion"—as if #Russia is peripheral to Manafort's work. This is #disinformation. In fact, he's worked consistently in #Putin's & Russia's interests FOR YEARS, as historian @TimothyDSnyder has recently written⬇️ #Maddow
