Manafort's Lawyers' Epic Fail Is Driving Twitter Wild
The criminal case against Paul Manafort got a lot more (publicly) interesting yesterday after it became known that he shared polling data with Russian associate Konstantin Kilimnik. This very juicy information is almost rivaled by how the intel was obtained - via a terrible and arguably hilarious fail on the part of Manafort's lawyers.
It would seem that these attorneys skipped their redacting class. Instead of, you know, using the redact tool on Photoshop, Manafort's brilliant team just placed black boxes over the text. This allows anyone who knows how to copy and post to reveal the information. As can be expected, the blunder was received with a gigantic collective facepalm from people on Twitter. We're just happy for the laughs, and for the Photoshop lesson.
