Mueller Says He'll Provide Manafort With 2000 'Hot' Documents

THURSDAY NOV. 2 2017 FILE

Special counsel Robert Mueller issued 15 search and seizure warrants and gathered more than hundreds of thousands of documents in the course of investigating President Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business and campaign aide Rick Gates, according to new court filings.

The lawyers also argued that the government's broad interpretation of the gag order "would unconstitutionally violate Mr. Manafort's rights to defend himself and his reputation, and to correct the public record".

"The Special Counsel's standard would lead to the constitutionally untenable conclusion that a defendant is not even allowed to maintain his or her innocence when such an order is entered because, by doing so, that statement might influence the public's opinion", the attorney, Kevin Downing, said in court filings.

The "narratives" also claimed that Manafort "never worked in Russia or for Russians", that his work was "centred on pro-Ukraine efforts to enter the European Union", and that he "never took cash payments".

Prosecutors expect to provide Manafort's defense with the documents by a court conference on December 11.

American and Other Airlines To Ban Smart Bags
The new restrictions by U.S. airlines are a blow to smart-luggage companies like Bluesmart, whose batteries are not removable. If the customer is able to take the bag into the cabin with them, the customer will be able to leave the battery installed.

Nevertheless, the op-ed was published Thursday in an English-language newspaper in Ukraine under the byline of Oleg Voloshyn, a former Ukrainian official.

Manafort's lawyers say an op-ed published... Kilimnik appears to be the person prosecutors referred to as "assessed to have ties" to Russian intelligence.

The bail agreement the lawyers appeared to have reached would have freed him from house arrest and Global Positioning System monitoring while asking him to post more than $11 million in real estate as collateral. But prosecutors backed out of that agreement when they learned about Manafort's work on the editorial. The prosecutor's team also possesses imaged copies of 36 electronic devices such as laptops and phones.

Manafort and Gates face multiple counts of conspiring to launder money, conspiring against the USA and giving false statements to the government.
