Special counsel Robert Mueller has filed his sentencing memo on Paul Manafort and there is bad news for Democrats.
There is not one place in the 25 page memo that even hints at collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump, The Daily Mail reported.
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office has finally filed its delayed and redacted sentencing memo in one of its two criminal cases against Paul Manafort.
And the devastating sentencing memo reveals Manafort’s ‘criminal actions were bold’ and some were committed while he was working as Donald Trump’s campaign chairman.
Furthermore his criminal activity continued while he was on bail from the Mueller’s court.
Trump’s former trusted campaign chairman’s sentencing memorandum was due to be publicly available by midnight Friday, but failed to come to light, suggesting that the document might have been under a seal.
The document was supposed to outline all the facts prosecutors should consider in weighing a jail sentence for the 69-year-old, who’s been sitting in jail since June.
He pleaded guilty in September to conspiracy against the U.S. and conspiracy witness tampering stemming from his Ukrainian political consulting work.
But what it did not include was any mention of collusion or election tampering with Russia.
Conservatives are celebrating that news but liberals are in a panic.
Bad news for Dems in Paul Manafort sentencing memo. Not a word about collusion.

TV talking heads saying “no sign of Russian collusion” in Manafort sentencing document. Seriously?
Document mentions passing Trump polling info to Kilimnik, an FSB agent, and we know he offered info to Deripaska. And everything he did for the Ukraine was actually for Russia.

Nothing in Manafort report about Russia???? Trump is NEVER going to be held responsible is he? We are screwed aren’t we???

OK but this could easily be seen as Mueller compartmentalizing Manafort from the Trump-Russia investigation in an effort to proclaim no collusion. Unfortunately the longer this goes on the less faith I have in Mueller being the kind of “patriot” we need him to be.

So, @msnbc has determined that #Mueller does not have the evidence to indict @realDonaldTrump or his associates on Russia related conspiracy, based on a 25 page excerpt of #Manafort 800 page sentencing memo. #SMH

I just finished read the cover “letter”. While Manafort is as dirty as a dumpster, nothing in there connects him to Trump-Russia. I think that the redacted names are probably people who flipped and gave up Manafort for the crimes charged. But I’m just a concerned citizen.
