Why did Manafort’s defense lawyers leak an internal memo about the ‘DOJ and the press’?

Published

on

Lawyers for former Donald Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort released an internal memo against the FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller, Law and Crime reported Wednesday.

The document, titled, “DOJ [Department of Justice], OSC [Office of Special Counsel] and The Press” reportedly focused on Associated Press coverage of the Ukrainian “black ledger” of payments.

“Because the notes are so cryptic, it’s a bit hard to interpret what exactly the Manafort lawyers are after,” Law and Crime explained. “However, the Manafort team seems to be trying to figure out (or at least document) who was giving information to the Associated Press about Manafort’s finances.”

The question of whether the internal memo was inadvertently or intentionally released has been a matter of online speculation.

Former West Wing star Bradley Whitford, portraying defense attorney Albert Forest on the NBC show Chicago Justice, used a similar trick in the episode titled “Fake.”
