The list also appears to refer to numerous purchases of high-end clothing and consumer electronics that were discussed in the Virginia trial as prosecutors there laid out their case about Manafort's income and wire transfers from foreign accounts. Instead, Stelter and Bernstein railed against Trump.
In a statement Saturday, a CNN spokeswoman said, "We stand by our story, and are confident in our reporting of it".
