New Name Appears In Mueller's Cache Of Evidence Against Manafort

Special Counsel Robert Mueller filed a new cache of evidence against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort this week that had Bernie Sanders' chief strategist's name written all over it.

The list, which contains nearly 500 pieces of potential evidence, was published by prosecutors from the special counsel's office on Wednesday night. The Washington Post reports:

There will also be email communication between Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, and Tad Devine, a Democratic consultant who worked for the same Ukrainian politician.

Washington Post reporter Rachel Weiner failed to inform readers that Devine was Sanders' chief strategist during his 2016 presidential run. National Review reports:

The filing, submitted Wednesday night, lists a number of emails and other communications between Devine and Manafort sent between February 2010 and June 2014. Also included in the filing are email exchanges between Devine and Konstantin Kilimnik, a Soviet-born Ukrainian who managed Manafort’s business in Kiev for years, and who is also under indictment by Mueller.

The evidence of potential criminal activity that lists Sanders' former strategist happened just a few months before Sanders hired him in late 2014 for his presidential run.

Sanders' wife Jane is also reportedly under FBI investigation for possible bank fraud as investigators were looking into "a land deal she clinched when she was president of Burlington College in Vermont in 2010," Fox News reported late last year.
