Listen: Cohen, Manafort Mullah And Tampa Bay discussed on PM Tampa Bay with Ryan Gorman
"Tampa Bay on Friday, December seven quite a busy busy news day. Got to be honest with the last thing, I feel like coming on the air and talking about this evening after having already done AM Tampa Bay this morning was in-depth coverage of Cohen and Manafort sentencing memo's, but that's where we find ourselves at six thirty seven PM, I've been I've been trying to go through a little bit of this Manafort sentencing memo that broke a lot of it is redacted. So there's not a ton. We're going to be able to learn from it. Here's what I can tell you. Some of the highlights are molars office says that Manafort met with investigators twelve times where he lied in multiple ways and a multiple occasions. I think this is probably going to be the big headline added the sentencing memo for Manafort mullah's office says Manafort remained in contact. With a senior Trump administration official through February twenty eighteen well after he was indicted and lied about it. They confirmed his contacts with administration officials by search of his electronic documents. So again. I can't stress this enough. When it comes to making these cases, whether it's the southern district of New York or it's Muller's office. They are not relying on the testimony of these individuals. They're not listening to Cohen and saying okay that all sounds about. Right. We'll go with that. They know about shady some of these people are. They have documents to back this stuff up. We don't know who that senior Trump administration official is or officials, but. I wouldn't want to be them. Let me see here. Just taking a look at the Manafort. I mean, again, a lot of it is redacted. He lied about Manafort lied about his interactions with an associate who the FBI said was connected to Russian intelligence. So I'll continue to go through this as much as I can in between breaks here on PM Tampa Bay the president tweeted out a little while ago. Totally clears the president. Thank you. I'm not exactly sure what he's referring to. Because if he's referring to either of these memos. He's mistaken saw know what was behind that tweet but on page eleven of its sentencing memo for Cohen the Justice department says then candidate Trump directed his lawyer to commit to felonies for the benefit of his campaign that that's not totally clearing the president. Let me see here. I got an Email from a listener just now. Okay. This is it's a lot of insanity in here. But basically, the gist of the southern district of New York is Muller. No, it's not people. There are some things that are just facts.."
