Manafort Trump Pardon

Paul Manafort has been avoiding the spotlight since he resigned from the Trump campaign in 2016. Now he’s speaking out on Twitter to thank President Trump for pardoning him along with 25 others.

Trump pardons Paul Manafort

After years of avoiding the spotlight, former Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort broke his silence Friday, posting to Twitter to thank President Trump for granting him a presidential pardon from prosecution. “Mr. President, my family & I humbly thank you for the Presidential Pardon you bestowed on me. Words cannot fully convey how grateful we are.”

Manafort went on to praise Trump for all of his accomplishments as president. “History will record that your Presidency accomplished more in 4 years than any of your modern-day predecessors. You truly did Make America Great Again. God Bless you & your family. I wish you a Merry Christmas & many good wishes for the coming years.”

Trump issued 26 pardons, including to son-in-law Jared Kushner’s father, Charles, and to his 2016 campaign manager Paul Manafort and Republican political operative Roger Stone. Earlier, Trump issued pardons for four Blackwater guards convicted of killing unarmed Iraqi civilians, and for former GOP lawmakers Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins and two figures in Robert Mueller’s probe of Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Manafort, 70, was among the first in Trump’s inner circle to face charges that were brought on by special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

After facing criticism over his past lobbying work for pro-Russian Ukrainian oligarchs, Manafort resigned from his role in the Trump campaign in 2016 and was replaced by Kellyanne Conway. Conway resigned in August of 2020 after her lunatic husband, Lincoln Project co-founder and never Trumper George Conway, made her life a living hell with his relentless war against the president.

Manafort, who was convicted of crimes related to his consulting work in Ukraine, won an early release from a prison sentence of more than seven years due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic.
