👓 Paul Manafort, American Hustler | The Atlantic

Read Paul Manafort, American Hustler by Franklin Foer (The Atlantic)
Decades before he ran the Trump campaign, Paul Manafort’s pursuit of foreign cash and shady deals laid the groundwork for the corruption of Washington.
What a fantastic and stunning piece of journalism this is. Maybe one of the better in-depth pieces I’ve seen in the past couple of months.

It does make me really wonder about Trump’s claim to want to “drain the swamp” now that I’m aware of more of Manafort and Roger Stone’s histories and the fact that they seemingly singlehandedly created the swamp.
