Paulie Manafort's bad day


#307

There is not even a nodding acquaintance with the truth in this post.


#308

Yes, there is… The left has become the inquisition.


#309

Ayup. If you believe this stuff, I can see why you’re so very angry.


#310

What’s his big crime again?


#311

You can’t be this stupid. And if you don’t know, why not look it up? Do you think it’s a secret?


#312

Here, I’ll do you work for you. The superceding indictment with 32 counts. Happy reading. This doesn’t count his witness tampering.

#313

He’s in jail without a trial, right?


#314

He’s in jail pending trial. Happens all over the country, every day, since the founding of the nation and before.

Totally, 100% legal and constitutional.


#315

Probably should have observed the conditions of his bail. Stupid ■■■■■■.


#316

I’ve seen that. There’s no Russian collusion in it… Also, since you sent me the courts paper work, I don’t think you have any idea what’s in it.


#317

You don’t know, if he did or didn’t. I think he’s in jail for preparing his case. He’s being tortured for politics. Libs love it…


#318

We do know he tried to tamper with witnesses. The witnesses told us. We have copies of his messages. He didn’t contest the evidence.


#319

How come we don’t know how this 'tampering" happened…?


#320

We do now how the witness tampering happened. Perhaps you should acquaint yourself with the facts of the matter before you open your trap and make yourself look like a complete fool?


#321

The witnesses he tried to tamper with ratted him out to Prosecutors and they have the messages sent to them from Manafort. :rofl:


#322

Here, I’ll do you work for you again.

The Appointment Letter

There’s some interesting text in there that will help your misguided butthurt over Manafort’s treatment. I’ll point out some of it for you.

By virtue of the authority vested in me as Acting Attorney General, including 28 U.S.C.
§§ 509, 510, and 515, in order to discharge my responsibility to provide supervision and
management of the Department of Justice, and to ensure a full and thorough investigation of the
> Russian govemment’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, I hereby order as
follows:
(a) Robert S. Mueller III is appointed t() serve as Special Counsel for the United States
Department of Justice.
(b) The Special Counsel is authorized to conduct the investigation confirmed by then-FBI
Director James 8. Corney in testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on
Intelligence on March 20, 2017, including:
(i) any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals
associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and
(ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation; and
(iii) any other matters within the scope of 28 C.F.R. § 600.4(a).
© If the Special Counsel believes it is necessary and appropriate, the Special Counsel is
> authorized to prosecute federal crimes arising from the investigation of these matters

You’ll note that, while the counsel is entitled to investigate any links or coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign, the investigation is about the larger arena of, " Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election."

You’ll see as well that the “If the Special Counsel believes it is necessary and appropriate, the Special Counsel is authorized to prosecute federal crimes arising from the investigation of these matters.”


#323

I have this feeling that you are really going to regret taking up the torch for Manafort.


#324

There is also this really weird reasoning that crime was found, but since it wasn’t the crime we are looking for its all okay.

Very Weird.


#325

I know you haven’t read it because you keep vomiting up that ■■■■■■■■ about none of the indictments being for stuff in this decade.


#326

I don’t even think we can say with authority that these are not the crimes that were being looked for. Indeed, these crimes may very well lay the historical and relationship foundations for potential Russian efforts to interfere in the election.

Regardless, there are a lot of folks kicking whatever dirt whatever they can over these turds. Including some newfound respect for a concept of “bail” that has never existed in either American or commonlaw jurisprudence.
