And never forget that Manafort picked Pence to be V.P. which means Putin picked Pence to be V.P. [View all]

Manafort was working off his debt to Putin and company when he went to work as Trump's campaign manager
and was still working for Trump/Russia after he was "fired." And even after he was "fired" Manafort was still
feeding data to the GRU so Russia could rat fuck our elections.

New Yorker:
When Kost Bondarenko, one of Manafort’s longtime Ukrainian associates, told the
Daily Beast, in May, 2017, that “Trump won because of Manafort,” this is what he
may have meant.

Before Trump formally announced Pence as his vice presidential candidate, it was Manafort who made sure it happened, The New York Times reported last year.

Trump had hesitated to settle on Pence, who was governor of Indiana. Trump was fielding last-ditch appeals from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and publicly said he had not made a “final, final decision” until advisers like Manafort reminded him of the importance of uniting the GOP around conservative Christian values.

CBS News reported that Pence was Manafort's "first choice" and that Manafort even lied about mechanical problems on Trump's plane to make the soon-to-be GOP nominee stay an extra day in Indiana to get to know Pence. In a phone call, Manafort assured Trump that Pence was the right choice and made a case that won over the real estate tycoon.

The backpedaling began in March after it emerged that Manafort signed a multimillion-dollar contract in 2006 with a close associate of Vladimir Putin. Trump's team now claims that Manafort merely oversaw delegate operations and that Trump was not aware of Manafort's work for other governments, including Russia.
