Trump downplays Manafort indictment
Paul Manafort and Rick Gates are facing charges including conspiracy, money laundering, and failing to disclose his work as an agent of a foreign government. Both have pled not guilty to all charges. President Trump pushed back hard against any notion that the Manafort/Gates indictments had any link to him or his campaign. He tweeted: "Sorry, but this is years ago, before Paul Manafort was part of the Trump campaign. But why aren't Crooked Hillary & the Dems the focus????? ....Also, there is NO COLLUSION!"
