    Trump has said, he is not taking the pardon off the table. That is the reason why people are talking about it. And, why there are state charges.

    Given your deep knowledge of the investigation: When should they have filed so that it wouldn't seem political to you?

    Well, yes, basically Trump is wrong in the head, which is intuitively obvious to impartial observers. Unfortunately, there are many unimpartial observers of Trump due to his demagogic rhetoric.

    It also would include if any facts or evidence for the state case(s) were used in the federal case. If so, it's out as double jeopardy, other than it seems the Bill Of Rights has little relevancy in these political cases.

    No, but it’s good that you tried.

    Two judges agreed Manafort's atrocities deserved punishment -but no more than 4 years in jail. New York has a different mien, they've got an indictment for -mortgage fraud, oh my God!

    He is only being prosecuted because he was involved with Trump for a few months. I agree, completely political.
    Wrong. You're being a hypocrite and so is the entire right wing on this. It's more of the elites getting whatever they want, from buying their way into schools, to defrauding people out of millions of dollars.

    You guys make me sick with your elitism.

    Again, why are you ok with guys like Manafort getting off? And obsessed with Hillary being thrown in jail?

    I want them both in jail, but noooo, the cry baby right has to get their way and boohoo, Manafort was a political hit!

    and this is why today's atmosphere of convicted by word of mouth is so dangerous. you think Trump is a criminal , with absolutely no evidence brought to light and would probably convict him based on what you "think" if given half a chance wouldn't you?

    if he truly did something wrong I want him in jail yes. it appears that he did, so great, he is getting his just desserts. now are we also going to clamp down HARD on all the wrongdoings of the OTHER Lobbyists in DC that work for ALL politicians? or is this just supposed to be a lesson to those who work for Trump?

    that's where the problem comes in.
