Former Trump Campaign Chair Paul Manafort Retroactively Registers As Foreign Agent Working For Pro-Russia Group In The Ukraine
Former Trump Campaign Chair Paul Manafort registered as a foreign agent working on behalf of a Pro-Russian group in the Ukraine. Between 2012 and 2014, his firm earned more than $17 million.
This type of registration is required “under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) from anyone advocating in the U.S. on behalf of a foreign government or political party. The rules were part of legislation passed in 1938 to counter German propagandists operating in the United States before the start of World War II.”
Trump’s former Presidential campaign manager Paul Manafort was removed from his job after documents revealed he had been hired to promote the interests of the Russian government and had received payments for this work.
