Manafort Just Got Hit With A New Lawsuit [DETAILS]
Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort has been involved in multiple scandals, most of which have to do with the ongoing investigation into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election.
On Wednesday, Manafort got hit with a new legal headache after a Cypress-based company decided to sue him and his business partner Richard Gates over allegations of fraud by misappropriating millions of dollars.
According to a new report, Surf Horizon Limited filed a lawsuit against Manafort and Gates for misappropriating more than $18.9 million that their company had invested in the “Black Sea Cable,” a chain of Ukrainian telecom companies.
This lawsuit adds to the legal trouble that both Manafort and Gates are under with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
