People Don’t Know What To Think About The Biden Allegations (HBO)

Joe Biden touched a Connecticut woman inappropriately at a 2009 fundraiser, including rubbing noses with her, the woman said Monday, days after another woman said the ex–vice president gave her an unwanted kiss on the back of her head in 2014.

“He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth,” Amy Lappos told the Hartford Courant.

“It wasn’t sexual,” she added.

Lappos said she met Biden at an October 2009 fundraiser in Greenwich, Connecticut, for U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, a Connecticut Democrat. Lappos was a congressional aide to Himes at the time, and said she was in the kitchen with other volunteers when Biden approached her. There are three photos that show Lappos with Biden at the event, the Courant reported, though they were taken before the nose-rubbing incident.

Here’s What You Need To Know About Paul Manafort

Paul Manafort was sentenced to 7 ½ years in prison as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Here’s what you need to know about President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman.

He was born in 1949 in Connecticut. He graduated from Georgetown University in 1974. He practiced law at a private firm before going into politics. He advised Gerald Ford’s 1976 presidential campaign and established deep connections as a political lobbyist.

Manafort served as an international consultant for world leaders, including dictators Mobuto Sese Seko of DR Congo and Ferdinand Marcos of the Philippines.

In 2004, he became an adviser to Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. Yanukovych was a pro-Russia strongman who was criticized for backing out of a deal with the EU. Riots broke out and protesters were killed. Yanukovych was ousted in 2014.

In March 2016, Trump hired Manafort to manage the RNC.  He was eventually promoted to campaign chairman.

Reports came out about his work in Ukraine. One report claimed that he was paid $10 million to lobby for Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska, a close Putin ally. Manafort resigned from Trump’s campaign in August 2016. He was charged with secretly working to advance Russian interests.

In September 2018, he pleaded guilty to conspiracy and obstruction. He was also convicted of eight counts of tax and bank fraud in Virginia. New York state prosecutors have charged Manafort with 16 state felonies alleging he took part in a fraud scheme to illegally obtain millions of dollars.
