Paul Manafort

Donald Trump’s campaign chief Paul Manafort handed in his resignation. Donald J. Trump thus becomes the next finished chapter of his extensive resumé. Among advising to campaigns of several Republican presidents, including Ronald Reagan, he also cooperated with a Filipino dictator Ferdinand Marcos or Mobutu Sese Seko; a military dictator from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Manafort is currently facing accusations of previously receiving payments from the former pro-Russian president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych. According to the AP, the Ukrainian anti-corruption agency published copies of handwritten accounting records with details of cash payments up to $12 million from the Ukrainian politicians to Manafort.

For helping not one, but possibly two Vladimir Putin’s preferred presidential candidates, we decided to name Paul Manafort our next Putinversteher of the Week.
