  • Paul Manafort case is over: 47 Months

    If you've been living a normal life, you've probably realized Paul Manafort was up to something in the court system. It turns out he got sentenced to 47 months in prison.

    Why he was investigated and held in solitary confinement for so long is anyone's guess. Trump's name was brought up a lot with the Russians, but there doesn't seem to be any connection.

    This is what millions of dollars and hundreds of hours produce in the swamp.
    Former Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort appeared in federal court to receive his jail sentence Thursday after his conviction on corruption charges.

    I wonder if Trump will pardon Manafort...his detractors would go completely off the rails.

      This is the supposedly "big" news story? I think a Democrat party full of Socialists, racists, bigots, haters, and assorted corrupt cronies now in Congress is, personally.

          Well keep in mind none of his time in jail will be for anything related to trumps supposed collusion with Russia.
          Naturally with the sentencing the "resistance" is handling it about as well as the results of the 2016 elections.

            I thought we heard smug threads here about how Manafort was going to 'roll' and break the case wide open? That Mueller was going to really hit a home run?

              The president will probably let Manafort sit in a country-club lockup for about a year and then grant him a full pardon. Or, most likely, if it seems that he'll not be re-elected, then pardon him just before leaving office...along with anyone else caught up in the Mueller farce. (except Michael Cohen)

                  A vacation in Club Fed sounds about right.

                    There's been rumors floating around that Trump is well liked among inmates due to the recent bill he signed, First Step Act. This bill in addition to the well known fact that inmates hates rats, some think Cohen might get whacked. Naturally some will blame Trump if that were to happen. Therefore, Trump must pardon Cohen to get him out of danger and avoid being blamed should any harm come to Cohen while in prison.

                      Not at all. The responsibility of protecting an inmate rests solely with the pris0n admin and guards. That's what Protective Custody is for. Besides, he'll have plenty of rat company in Club Fed.

                          There's a facility out near El Paso, IIRC, where inmates of Manaforts' sort go. Minimum security, weekend furloughs, 'work-release' programs, and the life. An ex-cop I know did six years there, and only spent about half that time actually in the facility. Inmates have individual cells which they can lock to keep other inmates out, access to tennis courts, and that sort of thing.

                          No gangs, no violence, no unruly lower-echelon convicts. Just white collar crimes and the occasional CJ type.

                          A year or so there to let the media lose interest, then a medical release to house arrest.

                            It isn't over until this coming Wednesday. He is still going to be sentenced for other felonies he committed and the judge is not a bleeding-heart like the one he faced this week. He still faces a ten-year sentence.
                            We are not now that strength which in old days
                            Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
                            Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
                            To strive to seek to find and not to yield.
