Tom Barrack asks Paul Manafort to help the Trump Campaign

Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it's first reported.

The following is according to a New York Times article that claims 2016 is the first time Donald Trump and Paul Manafort were ever close. It wasn’t. The primary source for the article is Jason Maloni, Manafort’s spokesperson. He likely provided many other misleading details, as well.

Maggie Haberman, a close friend of Manafort associate Roger Stone, also contributed to the reporting. The end result is a dysfunctional report. Trump File can’t guarantee the authenticity of this timeline of events but will update when more information turns up in our research.

Sometime in mid-February, Trump/Epstein friend Tom Barrack and Putin-sponsored political chaos agent Paul Manafort are having “coffee and snacks” in Beverly Hills when Barrack says the Trump campaign is in some trouble.

The primaries are looking like a win for Donald Trump, but the candidate is “deeply worried about an establishment-strikes-back scenario” in which his luck would end at the Republican convention. Barrack thinks Manafort might be able to help.

In the two weeks that follow, Manafort sends Barrack two memos as a pitch for Donald Trump. They tout his overseas work (which included installing Putin’s candidate in Ukraine) as proof that he’s not a Washington establishment elite like the campaign officials others candidates rely on. The biggest selling point, though, is that Manafort doesn’t want any pay for his work on the campaign.

Barrack forwards the documents to Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, and he adds a cover letter in which he describes Manafort as “the most experienced and lethal of managers” and “a killer.” Ivanka prints the documents and brings them to her father.

Now, Trump wants a meeting.
