BREAKING: PAUL MANAFORT REPORTEDLY LAUNDERED MONEY FOR UKRAINIAN LAWMAKER TIED TO KREMLIN

The Hill:
President Trump’s former campaign leader Paul Manafort is being accused of laundering money from the party of Ukraine’s Kremlin-backed former president, the Washington Post reported Tuesday, citing documents from a Ukraine lawmaker.

Using documents found following the revolution in 2014, Serhiy Leshchenko alleges that Manafort paid himself $750,000 out of the party’s slush fund by forging invoices in a ledger to Belize.

“I have found during this investigation that [Manafort] used offshore jurisdictions and falsified invoices to get money from the corrupt Ukrainian leader,” Leshchenko reportedly said.

The news follows a report, which surfaced over the weekend, that Manafort is wanted for questioning in a Ukrainian corruption case, though Manafort is not charged with committing a crime.
