Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, December 10, 2017

Bob Mueller used the "Track Changes" function in Microsoft Word for Mac to make new accusations against Paul Manafort in a court filing yesterday -- a new sign of the special counsel's creative, unsparing approach. Key quote from the 41-page filing: "Manafort's conduct ... raises serious concerns about his trustworthiness that warrant denial of the motion to release Manafort from home confinement." ... Mueller discovered Manafort "was heavily involved in the drafting of an opinion piece about his involvement in Ukrainian politics. ... Mueller's office had accused Manafort of ghostwriting the op-ed with a colleague who they said had ties to Russian intelligence."

The response: "Manafort's attorneys had argued that Manafort had only edited the piece after receiving it from a former Ukrainian public official whom he knew through his consulting work in Ukraine. They also said Manafort hadn't violated the judge's order and was exercising his free speech rights to defend himself."

But now -- with the filing of page after page of "Track Changes" notations from a document that was "Last saved by paul manafort" -- "prosecutors revealed that they knew nearly every detail of that editing process."

I am laughing at this POS being so STUPID. Hello McFly - you are under investigation. Remember ALL international communications can be and are wiretapped. Think about it - your systems in particular are likely monitored/wire tapped.

"Think about it - your systems in particular are likely monitored/wire tapped."

Ninety-nine point nine percent of the people don't have anything to worry about. Then there are The Manaforts of the world.

You better hope and pray they're being monitored.

Why am I not surprised Republicans do not know how to use MS Word? Morans, the lot of them!
