Paul Manafort revealed as kind of man who writes ‘bada bing bada boom’ in emails
The phrase caught the attention of people online.
As part of the deal, according to NBC News, the former Trump campaign official will surrender several properties in New York and Virginia as well as his bank accounts. Manafort was found guilty last month on several counts of fraud, while other counts were declared a mistrial.
In a charging document released by authorities, it goes into detail about Manafort’s work for Viktor Yanukovych in 2012, who was running against Yulia Tymoshenko for president of Ukraine.
The document shows that he tried to spread stories in the United States that would have accused a “senior Cabinet official” of being anti-Semitic for supporting Tymoshenko.
The document says he worked with an unnamed Israeli official to spread the story and wanted to have “Obama Jews” put “pressure” on the administration to support Yanukovych. As part of the work, according to the document, Manafort wrote to “Person D1” as he worked to disseminate the story for media outlets in the United States.
“I have someone pushing it on the NY Post,” he wrote. “Bada bing bada boom.”
Naturally, Manafort’s use of “bada bing bada boom” was spotted by people online.

My favorite line in the Manafort plea is when he is quoted as saying “I have someone pushing it on the NY Post. Bada bing bada boom.” He’s nothing but an ostrich coat wearing mobster. pic.twitter.com/H8AgB3XFKt

Manafort literally said “bada bing bada boom” as he was committing crimes. Guy is like a character in a bad 80’s crime thriller pic.twitter.com/7xvUOsfKzw
