However, Maloni made it clear that the two cases should not be compared as Flynn’s actions are not the same as Manafort’s.

“Paul’s work ended well before he joined Candidate Trump’s campaign,” Maloni said. “Unlike Flynn, Paul was not simultaneously working as a foreign agent while he was working for Trump.”

Some of the names that Manafort mentioned in the document, suggesting that he was in contact with them regarding his Ukrainian political campaign work are California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, former U.S. official Paula Dobriansky and Vice President of National Endowment for Democracy Nadia Diuk.
