Panicked Trump Reacts To Manafort Indictment By Calling For Investigation Of ‘Crooked Hillary’




President Trump on Monday offered his first response to the charges filed by special counsel Robert Mueller against his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, claiming on Twitter that the alleged crimes occurred “years ago.”

In a pair of tweets, the president said the charges against his ex-campaign chief were related to his actions before he “was part of the Trump campaign” and asked “why aren’t Crooked Hillary & the Dems the focus?????”

“Also, there is NO COLLUSION!” he tweeted.



Manafort was charged with 12 counts, including conspiracy against the United States and money laundering related to his work for a pro-Russia political party in Ukraine.

His longtime deputy, Rick Gates, was also charged on Monday.
