Paul Manafort Guilty on 8 Counts!!! Felony Tax Fraud and Other Crimes
8/21/2018 1:43 PM PDT
Paul Manafort had a bad day … a jury found him guilty of 8 counts — 5 tax fraud charges, 1 charge of hiding foreign bank accounts and 2 counts of bank fraud. He was not acquitted on a single charge but the jury deadlocked on 10 other counts. The judge declared a mistrial on those 10 counts.
As we reported … his downward spiral started last August when the FBI stormed Manfort’s house in Alexandria, Virginia to seize docs related to Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia interference of the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
Manfort surrendered to the FBI a couple months after and indicted on multiple federal charges … including laundering more than $18 million through foreign banks which was used to fund his lavish lifestyle.
His bail, however, was revoked and sent behind bars after he was slapped with new charges … including obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice. Mueller alleged Manafort tried to tamper with 2 witness in his money laundering case, which is always a huge no-no.
