Paul Manafort’s lawyers bungle redactions on new legal filing — exposing new secrets

Published

on

Attorneys for Paul Manafort incorrectly redacted portions of their latest filings, leaving the secrets that had been redacted open to discovery by anyone with a computer mouse.

As noticed by Mike Scarcella of Law.com, the redacted portions of the new filings in Manafort’s case can be accessed by copying and pasting the portions that are blacked out.

One of the redacted portions includes details about Manafort meeting with Russian intelligence operative Konstantin Kilimnik in Madrid.

Another concerns President Donald Trump.

“The first alleged misstatement identified in the Special Counsel’s submission (regarding a text exchange on May 26, 2018) related to a text message from a third-party asking permission to use Mr. Manafort’s name as an introduction in the event the third-party met the President,” the redacted portion reads. “This does not constitute outreach by Mr. Manafort to the President.”

Read the filing here and copy/paste the redacted portions to see them.
