The Sentencing (and New Charges) of Paul Manafort

Andrea Bernstein, senior editor for politics and policy and host of the Trump, Inc. podcast at WNYC, and Jennifer Rodgers, former federal prosecutor and lecturer at Columbia Law School, break down the latest sentencing of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort."We did not know about Ukrainian oligarchs at this time, we didn’t know about secret accounts in Cyprus and the Grenadines, all we knew was that there was this pattern of New York real estate purchases that raised suspicions," says @AndreaWNYC on Manafort's mortgage fraud charge. — Brian Lehrer Show (@BrianLehrer) March 14, 2019"It is fair to say that if there were collusion that is chargeable collusion, that Manafort would have been one of the likely people tied up in that." 2/2 — Brian Lehrer Show (@BrianLehrer) March 14, 2019
