FEATURING RAHUL MAHAJAN – Associated Press earlier this week released an explosive report, which found that, “Before signing up with Donald Trump, former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to ‘greatly benefit the Putin Government.'” The story was released soon after FBI Director James Comey admitted during testimony to the House Intelligence Committee that his agency was investigating ties between Trump’s cabinet members and the Russian government and that the inquiry began 7 months ago. Comey also denied that the Obama administration was wiretapping Trump’s residence, directly refuting the President.
