The Paul Manafort indictment: His personal expenses, by the numbers

The Paul Manafort indictment: His personal expenses, by the numbers”

His lawyer, Kevin Downing, called the indictment's charges that Manafort used offshore accounts to hide funds from the government "ridiculous".

Paul Manafort, the onetime chairman of the Trump campaign, surrendered to authorities on Monday after he was indicted on 12 counts related to money laundering, including "conspiracy against the United States". It accuses Paul Manafort and Richard Gates of acting as agents of the Government of Ukraine and getting paid a lot of money for their services.

The allegations come in the bombshell federal indictment in Washington, D.C., made public Monday as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

Searches for "indictment" were up 3,600%, the dictionary said.

-Indictment is the officially charging of someone with a crime.

It was previously reported that Manafort had arranged for the prominent NY law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom to assemble a report for the Ukrainian government on the Tymoshenko case, but it is not clear from the indictment that that is the report being referred to.

Manafort paid $1.5 million for a 5,231-square-foot home in BallenIsles Country Club in Palm Beach Gardens in 2007.

He also spent more than $840,000 at a clothing store in NY between 2008 and 2014. A Hamptons landscaper got transfers totaling $656,000.

-Antique dealer in NY: $623,910.

Between 2008 and 2012, Manafort spent $520,000 at a clothing store in Beverly Hills.

Documents obtained by The Associated Press show Manafort has made past payments to a NY tailor named Eugene Venanzi, whose former store on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue advertised in Trump Magazine and sold to fund managers, financiers and celebrities, court records show.

His lavish lifestyle - with homes in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Hamptons, Arlington, Virginia and elsewhere - were detailed in an indictment filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia that was revealed on Monday.

-Property management company in SC: $46,000. At least one Halloween pumpkin had been smashed on the property, eerily echoing the cover of yesterday's New York Daily News, which showed Mueller "Smashing Trumpkins".

The entrance to Paul Manafort's brownstone at 377 Union Street in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, was recently tagged in chalk with the word "FASCIST".

Mrs. Manafort is an attorney who participates in her husband's varied million-dollar real estate acquisitions. When he applied for loan on the property, Manafort stated falsely that the daughter and her husband used it as a second home, because the bank would permit a larger loan if the property were owner-occupied, the indictment says.

At the same time, Manafort made withdrawals from a bank in Cypress to pay a Florida contractor, according to the indictment.

As reported, on June 27, 2017, Head of the Special Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPO) Nazar Kholodnytsky said there were no Manafort signatures in the Party of Regions unofficial payment ledger.
