Manafort lived the high life off millions allegedly hidden in offshore accounts

Paul Manafort raked in tens of millions of dollars by secretly working for the Ukrainian government – and blew more than $12 million on shopping sprees, antiques, Range Rovers and housekeeping, according to court documents.

President Trump’s former campaign manager allegedly personally laundered $18 million through offshore accounts, located mainly in Cyprus and the Grenadines, out of more than $75 million funneled into them by him and his “right-hand man” political consulting partner Richard Gates.

Between 2008 and 2014, Manafort tapped into the overseas accounts as if they were his personal piggy bank to fund his lavish lifestyle in the United States, according to the indictment filed Monday.
