Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort will await his trial for foreign lobbying charges from jail.
Two weeks after special counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors dropped new accusations of witness tampering on him, US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Friday revoked Manafort’s bail, which had allowed him to live in his Alexandria, Virginia, apartment under house arrest.
In a tweet, President Donald Trump said the decision to revoke Manafort’s bail was “tough,” although he referred to it as a “sentence.”
“Wow, what a tough sentence for Paul Manafort, who has represented Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole and many other top political people and campaigns. Didn’t know Manafort was the head of the Mob. What about Comey and Crooked Hillary and all of the others? Very unfair!”
Judge Amy Berman Jackson who tossed former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort in jail.
Judge Jackson has a horrible far left record on the bench. In 2013 Judge Jackson rejected arguments from the Catholic Church that Obamacare’s requirements that employers provide cost-free coverage to contraceptive services is contrary to their religious beliefs and violated their religious and free speech freedoms. This was overturned by the Supreme Court.
And now this…
The Mueller prosecutor who petitioned Judge Jackson to throw Manafort in jail attended Hillary Clinton’s election night party.
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s right-hand man, Andrew Weissmann, was accused of using “corrupt legal practices,” and withholding evidence in a previous case involving the Colombo crime family, reported Fox News contributor Sara A. Carter.
Manafort is in prison without having been tried or convicted of ANY crime while Hillary is still free to fall down any stairs that she wishes.
We have an out-of-control prosecutor and judge running our DOJ and basically the entire country. If this is the way they are going to let it stay then all the job numbers and talks with NK means ZERO because this country is already destroyed and we did it to ourselves without one bullet or nuclear bomb.
