Listen: Donald Trump, Trump Tower and Paul Manafort discussed on The Beat with Ari Melber
"Take a look testify at any proceeding Bob Muller orders that could include grand juries. It could include open court. So while the White House is rushing out to say that these crimes that Manafort confesses to, we're not related to Trump. That's their argument that may not mean anything. It may not be true, and it's going to be up to under the law. Now Paul Manafort to tell Muller's team anything they want to know which can include, of course, his work for the Trump campaign or anything that involves Trump before and after. So that of course, goes into the strike zone of this whole probe what did happen inside that Trump Tower meeting? Why did the RNC mysteriously changed language to help Putin on Ukraine at that RNC convention? What other context were there with Russians or their cutouts. And anything else about the ties between Donald Trump's campaign. And russia. Are there any ties between Mr. Trump you or your campaign and Putin? And his regime, though there are not. It's absurd. Metaphor tonight is back in jail before what will ultimately be sentencing for all of this. Now he faces a decade in prison for those two crimes. He confessed today plus separate time for the conviction in Virginia Muller's team was in a celebrate Tori mood as they filed into the courtroom today. They were led by Andrew Weissmann. He is the one you may have heard about on this very show because Trump allies have warned that he is ruthless with defendants and that he virtually always wins. Well, we're seeing that tonight. Manafort has to forfeit several of his very luxurious properties that includes homes in Brooklyn Manhattan and the Hamptons, but perhaps most importantly, to many people, it will include his infamous apartment in Trump Tower itself. That of course, that residents was part of Paul manafort's patch to Trump that he should be hired as a volunteer quote, unquote. On the campaign tonight, Paul Manafort joins a new group, a group of people who have been Trump aides who've gone on to plead guilty at the hands of the federal government. Let's go. It right to a very important panel. We've put together for this very important news night, former mayor of New York City. My widely also served as a civil prosecutor in the southern district, which is so relevant to these issues. David corn, Washington bureau, chief for mother Jones as well as two former federal prosecutors. Seth Waxman and Patrick Cotter who prosecuted mob boss, John Gotti my thanks to all of you. This is one of those days Maya. When you look at what Bob Muller God here, is there anything he wanted that he didn't get outta Manafort or is this a complete fold just as a complete fold. He can't read it any other way. And I thought about you tonight are a and I thought about Vince Staples, it's about hot as sixty five hundred degrees in the White House right now as a result of this. So all if you look at what happened, if he Paul Manafort had said before that he didn't wanna cooperate where Donald Trump was concerned. And now here he is fully cooperating wherever Muller's questions. Take him and into any venue that Muller wants to take him. That is huge. And remember it's both, but Trump Tower meeting. It's also the fact that he Muller said in the Virginia filings, but he thought that there were reasons to want to know about creating a back channel to Russia. That was explicit, and that's something we know he's got to be talking to Manafort about. And another thing that just remember, he didn't agree to give Manafort a cooperation agreement unless he had heard sufficiently enough for Manafort to make it worth his while. Well, that's that's very important. What you say there and Patrick.."
