    There will be a hold on Manafort. So as soon as his federal sentence ends, the State of New York will pick him up. And then Manafort would have to litigate the New York double jeapoardy statute. He likely will lose becsisevthe crimes are different. For example, state tax evasion. Different obligations than federal tax evasion.

    I wonder if he will be alive to see all this mess ruled outrageous govt conduct and the convictions connected to the special counsel dismissed.

    Absolutely not. Similarly, he won't be alive when we confirm the moon really is made of Swiss cheese, either.

    Somehow prison doesn't seem to be the best way to spend your golden years. I see he pleaded not guilty to mortgage fraud.


    Shaa!!!!! :D:D:D
