A series of new revelations about Paul Manafort, the chairman of Donald Trump's presidential campaign, may shed some light on why the Republican nominee decided he had to bring in some new blood. In stories published today by the Associated Press and the Times of London, Manafort's work for the Moscow-friendly government of Ukraine in the years before it was overthrown is shown to have been more extensive than was originally known, and possibly counter to U.S. interests.

The stories build on a major New York Times revelation from earlier in the week that revealed Manafort's name appears in a ledger the Ukrainian government believes documents illicit cash payments made by the Party of Regions, the political organization that backed deposed Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych. Manafort has denied accepting any illicit cash for his work in Ukraine.
