Robert Mueller scores a victory as federal judge allows criminal case against Paul Manafort to move forward


#52

I didn’t say he was cleared, they just didn’t think it was worth bothering with back then. And most of it is from around 2005. What ever “it” is… I notice they never mention the actual “crimes”.


#53

Justice? I couldn’t care less about Manafort. Get the Big Kahuna! I want Tater 'peached.


#54

They never mention the actual “crimes”? You did not read the charging document?

A sampling…

#55

So you have evidence the government knew about his potential illegal activities but decided not to do anything about it until 2014?


#56

We’ll have to see what Mueller brings on “Tater”.


#57

Nuttin’. I never get what I want in politics.


#58

Look, bank fraud over and over…lol! He said 20$ but it was 20.01$… Poor deluded lefty.


#59

Should we not charge people for bank fraud? What about lying about foreign income? I take it you’re not a believer in law and order.

"18 U.S. Code § 1349 - Attempt and conspiracy
US Code
prev | next
Any person who attempts or conspires to commit any offense under this chapter shall be subject to the same penalties as those prescribed for the offense, the commission of which was the object of the attempt or conspiracy.

(Added Pub. L. 107–204, title IX, § 902(a), July 30, 2002, 116 Stat. 805.)"

Kind of gauge isn’t it…LMAO!


#61

That’s “vague” not gauge… no edit…


#62

So you’re not really interested in crime itself…just using the system to target your political opponents.

Would I be correct in that assessment?


#63

That’s what a jury is for, right?


#64

That’s just tax law. You could do one thing wrong and they have 40 laws it breaks… LMAO!


#65

the current game is that some people don’t care if law breakers go free if it guarantees that their favorite politician isn’t (potentially) implicated in any wrongdoing.


#66

Good thing he’s not poor. I bet this intimidates regular people to stay out of politics. So, it’s a game for the rich only. And the left loves it…


#67

^ A really good look at the current crop of Law & Order republicans.


#68

Like you really care about laws.

Where’s “Paul went to Putin and asked him to elect Trump through facebook?”…LMAO. Libs actually believe this stuff…


#72

Mueller hasn’t finished his investigation and none of us will know how bad (or not bad) any of this is or who else it affects (if anyone) until he has (or if other investigations are opened due to trials/flipping/new evidence/etc). everyone, including you, is just guessing at this point.

patience.
