MSNBC’s Nance: Manafort Investigation Could Turn Into Counter-Intel Investigation Into Potential Russian Agents

MSNBC Terrorism Analyst Malcolm Nance weighed in on Saturday’s “AM Joy” on former Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who is being investigated as part of a broad investigation into alleged corruption in Ukraine, saying the investigation could turn into a counterintelligence investigation about whether there were Russian agents.

“This story has yet to even open up,” said Nance. “The fact that Manafort resigned, and now we find out there’s a federal investigation, wait until this moves on to a counterintelligence investigation to where they may suspect that someone was an agent of influence or actually a directly handled agent of Russia, and we’ve already seen there’s been reporting that one of Paul Manafort’s associates was a Russian translator who may have, in fact, been an FSB/KGB agent.”
