Transcript for Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, Rick Gates indicted
Welcome to "The view." So the morning has been rather interesting. Former campaign manager for the new guy Paul manafort just surrendered to the FBI after getting hit with 12 charges -- are you okay back there? They're so happy. You were shocked to hear it I know. A video is going viral that some think might be a glimpse of things to come. ??? Faces and smiles for a moment ??? I want to just be clear that was actually scenes from the show dare devil with the theme some to Russia with love. I don't know who did it. They did a beautiful job. It looks like a great thing. It's not real. I just want to make sure people understand that because people say oh, my god they put this thing out there and they said this was real. We know it's not real. It's a mock up that somebody sent out. Fake news. It's not real yet. But the new guy is not backing down. This morning he tweeted sorry this is years ago before Paul manafort was part of the campaign. Why aren't crooked Hillary and the DEMs the focus. Don! This behavior goes into 2016. It was into the actual campaign. That is a true statement. The other thing is I just keep thinking this nothing burger tastes good. I think people kept saying depending where you were watching and I was trying to cross reference my sources some people were saying the obsession with this Russia is crazy. I feel a little better because I was beginning to think is it all in my head. Are these all coincidences? No. This is the indictment by the way everyone. Don't know what we don't know yet. Let's just -- If we talk about the indictment because it's a fact -- It came out last week the DNC and Hillary Clinton have ties to this fusion gps group and they paid -- Isn't it Normal to have opposition research? Not through Russian pra TVs. I always had a problem with the fact there was a crazy amount of ties and this is the -- This is the break down of did he mock are si -- Can I please finish?- No. Let's not talk about both side. Hillary Clinton and the -- Hillary Clinton is not the president and Hillary Clinton is not indicted. You know what, I'm trying to give you guys insight because I know a lot -- We don't need any insight about Hillary Clinton. Let her talk. I have want to hear it. Paul manafort for those of us who work in Republican politics has always been ethically ambiguous because of these money dealings and allegedly takes money. We know the story about don Jr. Meeting up with the Russian pra TV. A source of the white house said they were bad guys when they started. They were bad guys when they left. During the campaign when he was hiring people like this it raised a lot of alarms for people like me. Your campaign operatives are the reflection of the candidate. We don't know what we don't know. To sort of like poo poo the idea that the DNC is attached to this Russian dose yay is what makes Republicans heads go crazy. It's a distraction Meghan. Why are we talking about the DNC? Why aren't we talking about the people indicted today. It's the same thing. You know what bothers me 75% of the Republicans in this country do not think it's a big deal that the Russians invaded our country through cyber attack. President Obama told Mitt Romney it was the 1980s policy. President Obama wasn't indicted today. President Obama did not take Russia seriously. I'm trying to explain to your our side of the aisle. Let us tell you too. President Obama did not take it seriously. I quoted you what he said to Mitt Romney. I'm talking about something else. 75% of Republicans do not think it's important for Russia to invade our country. My father is such an adversary to Putin. You and your dad aren't in the 75%. It's very disheartening to hear this. They don't care about the democracy your family and mine have worked so hard to preserve. This is the worst part of the election for me. It's normalizing Vladimir Putin. You just had to Google to find out what he's done. Don't underestimated the politic sags of this as well. Thanks for the one clap. If there's more collusion, I'll be concerned. I think the timing of bringing up Hillary Clinton while we're finding out the present is administration is having this problem. His approval ratings are at an all time low. Trying to get through any tax reform, his trip to China he's screwed right now. The narrative is completely out of control. If he's innocent, he claims it's just a witch hunt. Let's see your tax returns. That will straighten the whole thing out. I think that's true. This isn't about the tax returns. We danced around every single topic except what happened today. We have an indictment against Paul manafort who was the campaign chairperson in March 2016 and Richard Gates. We're talking about millions and millions of dollars that were money laundered. We're talking about meetings with the Russians. This is not about both sides. This is about this side. I think we need to call it -- How much background goes into -- if you need to jump to the fact this guy was close to trump L, shouldn't they be background checking. This guy had an investigation in 2014. He ran his campaign, day to day operations. They're not going to check on each other.
