Paul Manafort resigns from Trump campaign

Trump outspoken campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, resigned Friday from the campaign amid growing speculation about his ties to Ukraine politics. On Wednesday the Associated Press reported that Mr Manafort helped a pro-Russian Ukrainian political party secretly move $2.2 million to two major Washington lobbying firms. The transfers were reportedly set up using a non-profit organisation - to obscure the Ukrainian party's attempts to influence US policies. US law requires lobbying firms to register and report in detail to the Justice Department any ties to foreign political parties or leaders. Earlier this week the Ukrainian National Anti-Corruption Bureau claimed a secret ledger showed Mr Manafort had been earmarked $12.7 million in off-the-books cash payments from the pro-Russian political party of Viktor Yanukovych, Ukraine's former president. Mr Manafort called the allegations "unfounded, silly, and nonsensical". Yet the damage was done.
