It’s interesting how in the video section below both, “Both America’s Favorite Mayor,” and Brian Williams, a known prevaricator miss the real story.
In the end, President Trump will likely issue Manafort a specific pardon, covering all charges against him.
What sense does it make to sentence a 69-year-old person to jail for eighty years?
If this is considered Justice in America, our Republic is in Peril.
Brian Williams: “I was there.”
A federal judge revoked Paul Manafort’s bail Friday and ordered him to remain locked up until his trial later this year, punishing him for allegations that he tried to tamper with witnesses.
“I cannot turn a blind eye to these allegations,” she said. W.T.F.?
The legal reason he’s there is listed as a vague “federal statute” offense, according to the jail’s online list of inmates. Manafort is technically there for witness tampering; he awaits his two trials in July and September after a federal judge revoked his bail for allegedly committing a crime since his arrest.
He will still be tried for the offense.
He has maintained his innocence in the face of 25 criminal charges that range from obstruction of justice and conspiracy, to foreign lobbying registration violations and bank fraud.
Northern Neck Regional Jail in Warsaw, Virginia, has him now—his name’s listed among upwards of 500 people they’re holding. (Source)
Last time I read my pocket constitution it was clear that an individual isn’t put in jail on the basis of the “Feelings,” of a leftist female judge.
Our system of jurisprudence prevents it unless there is a runaway judge deciding to make law from the bench.
Nice touch by Williams inviting two leftists on his sinking show to discuss the case, a normal tactic of left-wing bias.

Rudy Giuliani denied saying that there was “no collusion” between President Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia.
“I never said there was no collusion between the campaign or between people in the campaign. I have no idea, I have not.
I said the president of the United States,” Giuliani, who is Trump’s lead personal lawyer, said during an interview Wednesday on CNN.
“There is not a single bit of evidence the president of the United States committed the only crime you could commit here, conspired with the Russians to hack the DNC.”
Giuliani’s comments came after he was asked about how the defense team for Paul Manafort, Trump’s former 2016 campaign chairman, acknowledged in a court filing this month that their client shared polling data before the election with Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian-Ukrainian political consultant to Russian intelligence.
Kilimnik, who at one point worked for Manafort’s lobbying firm, was indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller last June on charges of obstruction of justice and tampering with a witness on behalf of Manafort.
Giuliani told CNN that presidential candidates usually “don’t pay any attention” to their party’s platforms, which are revisited during conventions.
Manafort held his post in the Trump campaign when the Republican Party’s official stance on protecting Ukraine in case of a Russian incursion was softened.
“Candidates don’t know a damned thing about the platform,” he said.
“I have been with a lot of presidents and a lot of presidential campaigns.
The platform, they pay no attention to.
They care about their acceptance speech, that’s what they are spending their time on.”
