Before President Trump’s former campaign chairman was nabbed for alleged bank fraud and tax evasion, there were plenty of red flags to make clear this was not someone who should have his hands anywhere near the highest office of the United States.

We at The Daily Beast did not, however, and we have been doggedly turning over every stone from day one, from Manafort’s shady business deals with a Putin ally and rumored Russian mobster, to his long track record of lobbying for the world’s most notorious dictators and despots.
