Ex-Russian Spy Just Heated Up Mueller’s Probe, Trump Is Shaking

On Saturday, Time Magazine released a bombshell report revealing Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign chair Paul Manafort was pressured by a Russian oligarch over his debts.

According to the report, former Russian intelligence officer Victor Boyarkin “was a key link” between Manafort and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“He owed us a lot of money,” Boyarkin says. “And he was offering ways to pay it back.”

Vance joined MSNBC’s Morgan Radford on Saturday to discuss the bombshell.

“There’s a lot information in circulation that talks about Paul Manafort’s indebtedness to Russian oligarchs and his efforts to pay them back, perhaps through briefings he offered to give during the campaign,” Vance reminded.

“The box Manafort will find himself is that at some point President Trump will be faced with the fact that there’s just too much evidence that Manafort was a creature of the Russians,” she predicted. “That means Trump will have to distance himself from Manafort.”

“So if what Manafort is looking for is a pardon, those chances look increasingly dim — it’s tough for a president to pardon someone who was in bed with one of our national enemies,” she added.
