Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team and the FBI were given copies of Kilimnik’s warning that ledger was fake, according to three sources familiar with the document. But they used the Black Ledger Story anyways to reopen Case into Manafort and Justify a Search Warrant.
The FBI also used news stories based on leaks to reporters that Weissman had met with about Manafort, in affidavits used to back search warrants into Manaforts financing.
The FBO agent failed to disclose to the court that both FBI officials and Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, who later became Mueller’s deputy, met with those AP reporters one day before the story was published and assisted their reporting.
"So essentially, the FBI cited a leak that the government had facilitated and then used it to support the black ledger evidence, even though it had been clearly warned about the document."
"The FBI was told the ledger claimed to show cash payments to Manafort when, in fact, agents had been told since 2014 that Manafort received money only by bank wires, mostly routed through the island of Cyprus, memos show."
