Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D- Calif.) issued the following statement on the indictment of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort:

“This morning’s announcement should serve as a wake-up call to the White House that conspiring against the United States will not slide. In the face of confusing talking points and untruths put forth by the Trump Administration, it’s important to note that both Paul Manafort and Richard Gates spent significant time working with now-President Trump. Mr. Manafort ran the entire campaign operation for three months while Gates served as a close deputy. We must be sure to let Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation run its course and pay close attention to facts and not distractions.”
