Ukraine releases documents of alleged payments to Donald Trump's aide

Trump_convention_1Moscow: Ukraine's anti-corruption body has released entries from once-secret accounting documents that purport to show payments from a pro-Russian political party earmarked for Donald Trump's campaign chairman.

The Associated Press reported earlier this week that Paul Manafort helped Ukraine's Party of Regions secretly route at least USD 2.2 million to two Washington lobbying firms. Manafort told Yahoo News that AP's account was wrong.

The documents now released show Manafort's name listed as a recipient of funds totaling $12.7 million in 22 line-item entries.

Ukraine's National Anti-Corruption Bureau said, however, that it cannot prove that Manafort actually received the money because other people including a prominent Party of the Regions deputy signed for him in those entries.
