Rep. Schiff: Docs Show Paul Manafort Was ‘Bigger Liar Than We Knew’

New documents released by a federal judge show the “degree of collusion” between Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Russian operatives, says Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA). As the legal peril for Trump allies increases and more information is released, Rep. Schiff tells Lawrence O’Donnell “there’s still a lot we don’t know about this story.”

    1. ​@bearly traincot My kind is not welcome here in the community of pasty white DNC extremists lol. It’s ok if that’s the only non-defense you have.

    2. That is one of trumps favorite thing QUID PRO QUO,cause that’s how he get them to do what he does and he is doing it right now AS WE SPEAK ,recounting the votes in every state he think he lost .THE BIG LIE.

    3. @Pro’ se Kim , you might want o look a little deeper. You sound like a fool after recent events.

    4. Facts spilled on FAILED 2xTrump impeachments – it revealed true liars from the Dem Party, big and small pinnochios, made-believed scripted evidences, falsified documents, opinions/rumors, the dirty swamp, highly corrupt/highly biased USA media/journalism serving its chosen Dem political party, hollywood/sports politics etc. Same thing happening again, the dirty politics that destroys anyone who soak in it. Another Schiff show. QPQ

    1. insufferable!
      That’s the exact word I’ve been looking for 4 years!!!
      Pence is insufferable!!!

  1. They all need to be charged with TREASON. They be found guilty. Tried of these white collar crimes dont get prosecuted.

    1. @Carmen Chantilly Yes, some of us have learning disabilities, and some didnt pay attention in 7th grade. It shows a lack of clear thinking.

    2. @mike mann There is no “war” against Afganistan per se. There is an Authorization of the Use of Military Force, but Congress never declared war. So it’s not clear treason would be prosecutable, even if an American gave aid and comfort to the Taliban. Even John Walker Lindh, the “American Taliban” was not charged with treason.

    3. Sedition is more like it although since we are still technically in a cold war with Russia treason could apply.

    4. Facts spilled on FAILED Trump impeachments on court/congress records – it revealed true liars from the Dem Party, big and small pinnochios, made-believed scripted evidences, falsified documents, opinions/rumors, the dirty swamp, highly corrupt/highly biased USA media/journalism serving its chosen Dem political party, hollywood/sports politics etc. Same thing happening again, the dirty politics that destroys anyone who soak in it. Another Schiff show. Another waste of taxes.

  2. Interesting how the blackmailers blackmail their fellow blackmailers. This is quite a criminal chess game going on. And in the end, everyone loses.

    1. @TheDiamond2009 Better than reading your garbage that has no content – Jan 21, 2020 · An internet troll is someone who makes intentionally inflammatory, rude, or upsetting statements online to elicit strong emotional responses in people or to steer the conversation off-topic. They can come in many forms. Most trolls do this for their own amusement, but other forms of trolling are done to push a specific agenda.

    2. @SMS I qualify as a troll, but my only goal is to ridicule members of Moby Trump’s Death Cult

  3. Under the bus team, that Michael Cohen leads; towards the dock where you find the trumptanic. Senator Shiff is correct; & thank you Lawrence for all your journalism on the multi-faceted trumpery.

    1. @A.G. Slutburger Back at it again are you A.G. But no matter what you comment about it still annoying and ignorant. Evil, dishonesty, rudeness, lying that’s what you thrive on and your behavior is childish. I guess there’s always going to be something worse than others to show who’s actually the best among us humans, but it’s just not you.

    2. @A.G. Slutburger
      Lying is a sin, consider stopping your lies.
      Check your Bible’s Ten Commandments.

    3. Facts spilled on FAILED Trump impeachments under court records – it revealed true liars from the Dem Party, big and small pinnochios, made-believed scripted evidences, falsified documents, opinions/rumors, the dirty swamp, highly corrupt/highly biased USA media/journalism serving its chosen Dem political party, hollywood/sports politics etc. Same thing happening again, the dirty politics that destroys anyone who soak in it. Another Schiff show. Another waste of taxes.

  4. Manafort provided GRU with Americans electoral and polling data. No President who stands up for Americans would pardon a Traitor.

    1. @A.G. Slutburger Hey troll, you can’t say anything else but post the same stupid comment after every comment??

    2. @Aquatic Borealis he must be new at being a troll, I think copy and paste is all knows.

    3. @psycobleach46 tullis Well sometimes us trolls don’t want to waste ammo on the already brain dead.

    4. @ed perkins that is you TROLLS who are brain dead. Trolls don’t ever post FACTS just LIES

      “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”~ Marcus Tullius Cicero~ The traitor is Donald Trump

    1. @Tessmage Tessera
      You think trump could just sit there in court and be quiet?
      Mr. blabber mouth be quiet.
      What an image.

    2. @A.G. Slutburger Excellent fake comment from YOU! Go away, troll, with your shiny, brand new account.

    1. @TheDiamond2009
      If posts are lies, I’m all for YT deleting them.
      This country shouldn’t run on lies.

  5. I can’t forget the sick man wheelchair act he pulled at his sentence hearing and how he marched out the door with a smirk on his face when Trump commuted his sentence.

    1. @Mighty Whitey Except, Harvey still got sentenced harshly, and Biden won’t pardon him.
      Try your whataboutisms somewhere else, kid.

  6. He has the smile on his face because he KNOWS he is going to get out of it
    AND he is going to be rich. This TRASH sold out America for some money.
    This is the people the republicans are protecting… WTF!

    1. The RepubliCON Party needs to change its mascot from the elephant to the dung beetle to honor their brain washed voters who will eat any BS thrown their way…

    2. His buddy pardoned him . Also he looks very healthy bet he ate steaks and lobster for dinners on taxpayer’s money.

  7. I haven’t seen schiff this happy in a long time. I mean a genuine happy liked you can see in his face. He must know SOMETHING good”

    1. He’s been the one fighting for justice and America all along; he has to literally drag the rest of the Democrats kicking and screaming out to to their jobs.
      It’s like going into battle and one guy wants to carry the machine gun and take point, a couple of others are with him and the rest are wanting to hang back and go on sick call.

  8. Manafort should be spending years in a jail. The entire Trump administration was a criminal exercise.

    1. @Ernest Johnson You do know everyone can see that your fentanyl addiction is getting worse when you type this kind of hog slop, you do know this don’t you???

  9. “To admit that some people literally have no conscience is not technically the same as saying that some human beings are evil, but it is disturbingly close. And good people want very much not to believe in the personification of evil.”
    ― Martha Stout, The Sociopath Next Door

    1. I’ve worked with a lot of indicted fraud defendants, and nearly all are sociopaths. They have no sense of doing wrong, no remorse. They think everyone else is stupid and prejudiced against them–the cops, prosecutors, witnesses, judge and jury.

    2. @Austin Houde Trump’s administration did have a lot of criminality but it was on the Democrat side and not Trump. The swamp creatures were trying so hard to get rid of Trump that they actually showed who they really were especially in 202p election.

    3. Facts spilled on FAILED 2xTrump impeachments – it revealed true liars from the Dem Party, big and small pinnochios, made-believed scripted evidences, falsified documents, opinions/rumors, the dirty swamp, highly corrupt/highly biased USA media/journalism serving its chosen Dem political party, hollywood/sports politics etc. Same thing happening again, the dirty politics that destroys anyone who soak in it. Another Schiff show. Another waste of taxes.

  10. Talent and understanding leave their marks on this earth. Insolence and greed stains it.

    1. Mike Pence, Pompeo and Bill Barr are SO trying to keep undetected by the radar. Have they perhaps signed up for a Space Force mission?

    2. Yeah, pence was real tight with the other filthy traitor, mike flynn, too. Arranged security clearances for him and his son, that they weren’t authorized to have by the agencies who vet and issue those clearances.

    1. Yes, except when the Russia collusion and professional dossier went nowhere…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

  11. Pompeo won’t answer questions that he has to admit wrongdoing. He gets mad and deflects the question. He may just take the 5th.

    1. He could take the 5th and go to JAIL.

      When in Jail, He’ll start talking like a parakeet and cut a deal with the FEDS.
      He’ll FLIP like there’s NOOO TOMORROW.

    2. Pompeo must realize Trump sunk his chance to be USA president.
      Mike will never wash the Trump stink off himself.
      Wait till they all turn on each other.

    3. @Ali Durand I believe that is exactly what will happen. As fast as the rats jumped off the sinking ship since November, you can bet they will all start flipping on each other sooner than later.

    1. @Republican4life Was it?? Just because there are a lot of Democrats in this country doesn’t mean that they are all out to get you or anyone else for that matter. I use to be a Republican but the crap that Republians are pulling in the Trump infestation era was too much BS for me. Enough all ready!

    2. @Republican4life read it instead of watching fox..The investigation produced 37 indictments; seven guilty pleas or convictions; and compelling evidence that the president obstructed justice on multiple occasions. Mueller also uncovered and referred 14 criminal matters to other components of the Department of Justice. Trump associates repeatedly lied to investigators about their contacts with Russians, and President Trump refused to answer questions about his efforts to impede federal proceedings and influence the testimony of witnesses..but of course Barr’ s DOJ wasn’t ever going to follow up.any of the findings.

    3. @Popeyed 1 All about politics to make Republicans look bad and keep democrats in power.

    4. @Republican4life Republicans make themselves look bad on their own. No help from democrats needed.

  12. Trump knew how to surround himself with “YES PEOPLE” who could ignore TRUTH, PRINCIPLES AND CONSCIENCE.

    1. Facts spilled on FAILED 2xTrump impeachments – it revealed true liars from the Dem Party, big and small pinnochios, made-believed scripted evidences, falsified documents, opinions/rumors, the dirty swamp, highly corrupt/highly biased USA media/journalism serving its chosen Dem political party, hollywood/sports politics etc. Same thing happening again, the dirty politics that destroys anyone who soak in it. Another Schiff show.

    2. @whoRwe02 who better to peddle it than shifty schiff and their handlers in msdnc, xi nn and the msm.
