Manafort planning to leave US as Muellers team prepares to indict him in Russia probe


Paul Manafort is planning to leave the country soon, after he was reportedly notified that he will be indicted by federal prosecutors working for special counsel Robert Mueller.

The former campaign chairman for President Donald Trump has been targeted by investigators probing alleged Russian interference in the U.S. election, and a New York Times report revealed he had continued lobbying on behalf of foreign interests.

Right around the time Manafortís home was raided before dawn by federal agents, the newspaper reported, he started working for groups allied with Iraqís Kurdish minority to promote a referendum for independence thatís officially opposed by the U.S.

Federal prosecutors warned Manafort afterward that they planned to indict him ó and the former campaign chairman began making plans to travel overseas.

1. Can Mueller get an injunction or an arrest warrant or to take away Manafort's passport

to prevent this from happening?

3. I would hope so.

I would also hope that Mueller has eyes on each and every one of those Russian planes 24/7 that are presently on tarmacs in the US.

7. The police warn suspects after questioning them and pending charges "not to leave the town".

I would imagine that the FBI and the US Justice Department can issue a similar warning.

9. Oh.

So he's preparing to work against US foreign policy, and flee the country at the same time.

Very efficient.

I'm not sure about the Kurdish minority and independence. Maybe that would actually be a good thing, in theory.

13. This is straight out of a spy novel

How many privately owned Russian planes are there in the US right now?

If he's planning to go on the run, what does that do to the "flip Manafort" line of reasoning?

And what does going on the run imply about everyone else in this sordid and treasonous affair?

14. I am sure he is being watched.

Many of the Russian gang might try to go away.

Was there not a secret russian plane park near a Trump property.

I think a lot of rats are going to take a run for it.

Maybe a russian sub near by.

Don jr. does not want his SS protection now.

It is getting hot.
