Government’s response re Manafort Bill of Particulars

Case 1:17-cr-00201-ABJ Document 282 Filed 04/23/18:

 

“government to provide information falling within three principal categories:

  1. how Manafort “caused” certain actions,
  2. the nature of false and misleading statements, and
  3. the identity of “accomplices” and “others” referenced in the Superseding Indictment returned against Manafort on February 23, 2018,


“Because the Indictment provides sufficient factual detail to eliminate any risk of prejudicial surprise at trial, and because nearly all of the information sought by Manafort is either readily apparent from the Indictment or has been conveyed to Manafort in discovery letters and various phases of pretrial litigation, a bill of particulars is unwarranted in this case. For these and other reasons explained more fully below,Manafort’s motion should be denied.”

 

 

 

I still maintain that Manafort’s play is: get as much info & evidence (unsealed & unredacted) in the public domain. Again that’s my opinion and I could be wrong. For now that’s my working theory. Also see pages 4-6, but specifically page...now do you understand how pivotal van der Zwaan was? 

 

 

 🇺🇸GOVERNMENT’S MEMORANDUM IN OPPOSITION🇷🇺

“TO  DEFENDANT PAUL J. MANAFORT, JR.’S MOTION TO SUPPRESS EVIDENCE AND THE FRUITS THEREOF RELATING TO THE SEARCH OF HIS RESIDENCE LOCATED IN ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA “

 

When I reviewed this late night filing, I was immediately struck by the nearly identical arguments both Cohen & Trump have asserted in the SDNY Cohen Search Warrant.

The parallels of “evidence” and “privilege” and “taint teams’ are just uncanny, as in I’m starting to think Manafort...perhaps I’m wrong or my judgement is skewed.

See Page 2, paragraph 2 - re Warrant 

warrant to search Manafort’s condominium in Alexandria, Virginia. The application was based on a 41-page affidavit, submitted by the Affiant, describing potential violations of approximately ten criminal statutes arising from three sets of activities (“the Subject Offenses”). 

See Page 22, paragraph

If the government gave you the opportunity to voice concerns about privilege, which they DID in August of 2017, you (Manafort) can not cry foul after the fact. Incidentally I triple checked, shocker Manafort’s Supplemental filing, Motion to Suppress, occurred AFTER the Cohen raid.

Which makes me wonder: we know Trump isn’t that dumb to contact Manafort. Well Trump did call Cohen, so there that data point. But I’m somewhat curious if Trump has a cut out who is relaying info to Manafort...again that’s speculation in my end, so take it with a grain of salt.

 

 

🚨See Exhbit A November 2017 Letter

 Wait...so the FBI had previously interviewed Manafort twice and Gates now we actually have the exact dates. And disclosure that SCO Mueller submitted Manafort & Gates’ 2015 video deposition. 

 

🚨See Exhbit B

SC Mueller Office lawfully obtained 11 Search Warrants. Each application. If you think an EDVA Magistrate judge would rubber stamp a search warrant ...then you don’t know the Magistrate  Jugdes in EDVA. at the bottom are copies of deposition testimony from the defendants Gates and Manafort, and [name redacted]

 

 

I’ll come back to this later tonight...
