So you’ve heard about Paul Manafort’s penchant for tacky leather jackets and may never look at him the same way again, but wonder what his bad taste has to do with bank fraud and tax evasion? The Daily Beast can break it down for you in our new Rabbit Hole series. We’re gathering the most laugh-out-loud reveals together with the game-changing details as our reporters dive headfirst into the trial so you don't have to. Because, sure, Manafort’s $15,000 ostrich jacket is fun, and the $10,000 he splashed out on a karaoke machine tickles the imagination. But we can’t let his bad taste overshadow the fact that he saved nearly half a million dollars in taxes by, according to his own former accountant, falsifying a loan application to a Chicago bank. Or his defense team’s apparent bid to shift all the blame onto the star witness of the trial, Manafort’s former business partner, Rick Gates. Sign up for Beast Inside to get caught up on all the nitty gritty details.
