One of those loans was for $3.5 million and came from a business, Spruce Capital, that has connections to Ukraine through billionaire Alexander Rovt. The company's co-founder, Joshua Crane, has been a developer of some of Trump's hotel projects.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni said that the former Trump adviser has been in discussions with federal authorities since before the election about registering under FARA. The bank usually specializes in loans to help military veterans buy homes. The group is reportedly controlled by Viktor Yanukovych, the former president of Ukraine and a close ally of Putin's.
KIM: "I absolutely don't agree with the way Manafort is characterized now", Yermolayev says, "because he had his principles and supported Ukraine joining the West". Notably former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn lost his job after confirming media reports that he misled the administration about the extent of contact he had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak before stepping into office.
When he said it was "time to drain the swamp in Washington, D.C.", Trump attacked his opponent, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, for taking "massive sums of money from registered foreign lobbyists". It said officials there did not understand that Manafort and Gates were simultaneously being paid by the Party of Regions.
Manafort resigned as campaign manager in August 2016 amid a shakeup in the campaign staff of Donald Trump, who won the USA presidency three months later. Yanukovych subsequently sought exile in Russian Federation.

Why the Toronto Maple Leafs Will Beat the Capitals
Only eight of the Presidents' Trophy-winning teams (it has been handed out since 1985-86) have gone on to win the Stanley Cup. The Maple Leafs didn't reach 70 points the past two seasons. "Last year everyone was saying there are no Canadian teams".

A well-played and safe shot right of the hole set up a two-putt par just moments after Johnson had started for the exit. I played as good as I have played in a long time. "After that, I can't remember missing a putt", he said.
The claim by a Ukrainian investigator "that he has evidence of a wire transfer to a USA bank account of Mr. Manafort", said Maloni, "completely undercuts [the] long-time charge that the Party of Regions ledger detailed "illegal cash payments" to Mr. Manafort". The other was $455,249 and also matched a ledger entry.
While working in the Ukraine, Paul Manafort invested millions of dollars in real estate to secure loans needed to curb various financial losses.
Manafort had previously insisted that the logbook was a fake.
According to the Associated Press, Manafort received $1.2 million in off-the-book payments from Yanukovych's party while the Russian-backed leader was still in power. Specifically, the 68-year-old former Trump campaign manager called the report "totally misleading and incorrect". Documents they obtained detailed wire transfers and political strategy memos written by Manafort in 2005 to influence US politics, business and news coverage in favour of Putin. A Freedom of Information Act request filed by the Daily Caller reveals that the Department of Justice took interest in Flynn after he published a pro-Turkey editorial on November 8, 2016.
