    Re: Manafort receives 4 years

    Mueller held off presenting sentencing guidelines to Judge Berman until after Judge Ellis issued his sentence today.

    The good money is on Mueller going for the ten year max or close to it and the two sentences running consecutively rather than concurrently. That is the 4 years plus whatever Judge Berman imposes. So that would be 4 + X = ! for the 70 year old. It could run to 14 years by the two judges. Maybe 10 total if Berman goes with 4 years fewer than the 10 years max, for instance.

    Methinks Trump will want to pardon Manafort despite advisers trying to kill the idea. Maybe Trump will pardon Manafort, maybe he won't. Hard to know at this point.

    Judge Ellis insults the Constitution and the American people.

    This is the typical right wing judge being put on the benches all over the country. This same judge gave a man whose only crime was bribery 13 years. Bet you can not guess the color of that man's skin. Meanwhile a man who has broken laws almost his entire life and is convicted of multiple crimes including bank fraud and tax evasion gets 47 months which actually means 36 months. And this is what we can continue to expect in the future.

    If Ellis wasn't in on the fix, or being blackmailed, he would have thrown the case out last year.

    Unfortunately for him, he missed the real magic variable in not being a leftist, which would've made sure to have him spend 0 time in jail and, in fact, not even been taken to court.

    Have there been any calls yet to investigate judge TS Ellis?

    On what grounds...the Republican's are in Power Plan? What a joke. I thank you for leaping to Manafort's defense though. Speaks volumes.

    The Mussolini meets Goering Republican Party and appoints Goering to the bench.

    Rinse and Repeat. Putin meanwhile checks another box.

    Constitutional grounds. Violation of the 4th, 5th and 8th Amendments.

    Just think, if he was white, rich, politically connected and female (Hillary Clinton) he never would have been indicted.
