DC Lobbyist Who Cooperated With Mueller Asks For Probation On Foreign Lobbying Charge

International political consultant W. Samuel Patten asked for a sentence of no jail time in a Monday court filing, arguing that his extensive cooperation with the government and remorse for his crimes warranted a probationary sentence. Patten, who pleaded guilty to an illegal foreign lobbying charge and a charge of lying to Congress in August 2018 in a case brought by D.C. federal prosecutors, apologized for his actions while going out of his way to distinguish himself from Paul Manafort. “Pe...

Patten’s Cooperation With Feds Stays Secret As Inaugural Probe Heats Up

The D.C. lobbyist who pleaded guilty in August in a prosecution linked to special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s Russia probe will have the details of his case remain under wraps, after prosecutors added yet another mystery filing to the docket. D.C. federal prosecutors filed a joint status report in Patten’s case under seal Monday, after doing the same in a surprise New Year’s Eve move. Patten pleaded guilty to failing to file as a foreign lobbyist in August, admitting in his plea that he took ...

This Week: Manafort Gave Trump Poll Data To Russian, Mueller Report Coming

We may finally have a concrete deadline for the Mueller report.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has overseen the Mueller case, reportedly hopes to stick around until that report is filed. That means ...

Mueller Eyes Ukrainians Who Attended Trump Inauguration

The special counsel is looking at how a number of Ukrainian politicians secured seats at the Trump inauguration, the New York Times reported Thursday. The report comes amid indications that probes into the Trump inauguration — and what it did with the record $107 million it raised — are heating up. At the same time, peace plans that various Ukrainians were ferrying to Washington have also become a focus of the investigation. The Ukrainian politicos who attended Trump’s inauguration were happy...

The Times’ Oligarch Switcheroo

As you’ve probably seen, The New York Times issued a major correction early this afternoon. They now say that Paul Manafort had his Ukraine-based fixer Konstantin Kilimnik send polling data not to Oleg Deripaska but to Serhiy Lyovochkin and Rinat Akhmetov, two Ukrainian oligarchs who were major financial backers of deposed Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, Manafort’s longtime client. This is a pretty big difference and a major error by the Times. But I’m not sure it really changes the big p...

What We Know About The Russian Manafort Contacted During The 2016 Campaign

Editor’s note: Shortly after this piece was published, the New York Times retracted its Tuesday report that Manafort asked for 2016 polling data to be shared with Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska.

We have updated this piece to reflect that correction. Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s ties to Russian figures have been simmeri...

GOP Rep. Tom Reed Bends Over Backward To Deny Manafort Collusion

No collusion! That was Rep. Tom Reed’s (R-NY) reaction when asked about the revelation that former Trump campaign chairman with a Russian associate — reportedly with instructions to pass it along to pro-Russia Ukrainian oligarchs Manafort had worked with. The New York Times initially reported that Manafort wanted the data sent to Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, but issued a correction to that reporting. Manafort instructed the information be sent to Serhiy Lyovochkin and Rinat Akhmetov, both ...
