Bank CEO wanted Manafort to secure him a Cabinet post

God, this Trump/Republican swamp just keeps getting dirtier and dirtier.  I wonder why he did not get the job as Secretary of the Army?  No matter, I would point out that this was Trump's campaign manager selling influence.  

 

 

 

 

 

A bank CEO who helped President Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort obtain $16 million in loans hoped for a Cabinet-level position in the administration, a bank employee testified in federal court Friday.

The bank employee, Dennis Raico, was called as a witness after a confusing morning at Manafort’s trial in Alexandria, Va., during which U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis III huddled privately with prosecutors and defense attorneys, delaying the start of testimony until midafternoon. A transcript of those discussions was sealed.

No reason was offered for the delay, but when Raico finally took the stand, he described how the CEO, Steve Calk, was willing to depart from bank policies to approve loans for a friendly and well-connected political operative.
