Paul Manafort is an American lobbyist, political consultant, lawyer, and convicted felon.
In 2017 Daniel Hopsicker wrote that "New evidence indicates that Oleg Deripaska, the Russian billionaire who paid $10 million a year to Paul Manafort between 2004 and 2009". A poorly redacted court document revealed in January 2019 that he was accused of sharing 2016 election data "with a business associate accused of having ties to Russian intelligence".
Manafort was an adviser to the U.S. presidential campaigns of Republicans Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and Bob Dole. In 1980, he co-founded the Washington, D.C.-based lobbying firm Black, Manafort & Stone, along with Charles R. Black Jr, and Roger J. Stone, joined by Peter G. Kelly in 1984.

Anything can happen.”|
