USA: Manafort indictment has 'nothing to do with the President' — White House

SOT, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Press Secretary (English): «It was extremely limited. It was a volunteer position, and again no activity was ever done in an official capacity on behalf of the campaign in that regard.» *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE* White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stated that the indictment of US President Donald Trump's former campaign chief, Paul... Еще Manafort, «has nothing to do with the president,» at a press briefing, in Washington DC, Monday. «Today's announcement has nothing to do with the president, has nothing to do with the president's campaign or campaign activity,» asserted Sanders. She went on to say that the US president and Manafort «haven't spoken in several months» and that «he last known conversation was back all the way to February, and as far as anything beyond that, with Paul, I'm not sure of any other contact.» The White House press secretary also noted that Trump is not planning to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, despite the fact that a number of Republicans have called to dismiss Mueller. «There is no intention or plan to make any changes in regards to the special counsel,» said Sanders. Commenting on the role of former Foreign Policy Advisor to Trump's campaign, George Papadopoulos, who has pled guilty to making false statements to the FBI in the Mueller probe, Sanders said that Papadopoulos was a «volunteer» advisor and that «no activity was ever done in an official capacity on behalf of the campaign in that regard.» Earlier in the day, Manafort and his business associate Rick Gates have surrendered to the FBI after being indicted on charges of conspiracy against the US in the investigation led by Mueller. The charges against Manafort and Gates include 12 counts, including conspiracy against the US, conspiracy to launder money, acting as an unregistered foreign agent as well as several counts related to failing to file reports for foreign bank accounts.
