Manafort earned millions working to benefit Putin Another report about an associate of Donald Trump involved with Russian interests. Paul Manafort at the Republican National Conveniton, July 19, 2016 Paul Manafort was Donald Trump's campaign manager for six months — prior to and during last year's Republican convention. Today the Associated Press is reporting that Manafort took "tens of millions of dollars" from Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska on a contract that promised to provide "great service…internally and externally" to "the policies of the Putin government." That was more than a decade ago, but it's raising new questions for the ongoing probe of the campaign's contacts with Russia. Chad Day, investigative reporter for the AP, co-wrote the story.
