Note: the fauxdacted #Manafort filings say that Manafort met the GRU in Spain to discuss a "Ukranian peace plan".
You know who else worked on a "Ukranian peace plan"?
Michael Cohen. https://patribotics.blog/2018/12/07/michael-cohen-sentencing-still-lying-to-mueller-over-prague/ …
2. The no doubt deliberate fauxdactions warn others what OSC wants hidden.
Important in that they show what OSC is presently trying to redact:
1. A meeting in Spain with the GRU
2. About the Ukr plan
3. Handed Trump polling data over
4. Ongoing contacts w Trump campaign
3. What are the cumulative implications of those redactions?
a) that Manafort continued to act for Trump
b) that in that capacity he received polling help from Russian intelligence
c) in exchange for the same sanctions relief on Ukraine Cohen was working on
4. The redactions, seen in this light, continue to bolster the Steele Dossier.
They show that OSC is demanding redaction on broadly the same actions, taken by Manafort, as Steele says were taken by Cohen - hacking help from Russian intelligence in exchange for sanctions relief
5 and final - the Ukrainian peace plan is absolutely key. @MichaelCohen212 continued this, with Russian intelligence, after @RealDonaldTrump was elected.
Chris Steele's raw intelligence dossier is sustained directly and indirectly by these redactions.
