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.
