Dirty Cop Robert Mueller and his mob of 13 angry Democrats don’t play.
On Friday top Mueller prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, a crooked attorney and staunch Hillary Clinton supporter who attended her election night party, petitioned the court to toss Manafort in prison.
Obama-appointed Federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson agreed with Weissman and tossed former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort in jail.
The Mueller witch hunt charged Manafort with dozens of financial crimes that took place up to 12 years ago.
Manafort should have expected this.
In today’s American justice system if you oppose the political elites this is what you get.
Prison for life.
The Hill reported:
Former Watergate prosecutor Nick Akerman said on Friday that Paul Manafort may never again “see the outside of a jail cell” after his house arrest arrangement was revoked on Friday.
President Trump’s former campaign chairman appeared in court after special counsel Robert Mueller asked a judge to revoke his pretrial release conditions, accusing him of attempting to tamper with potential witnesses.
During the hearing, the judge revoked Manafort’s bail and ordered him to jail.
“Just to put this in historical perspective, what broke the Watergate case was when James McCord got a 25-year sentence,” Akerman said when asked about the hearing while appearing on MSNBC’s “Velshi & Ruhle.” “He was one of the Watergate burglars. He got a 25-year sentence. He was sitting in jail because that’s what made him crack and cooperate.”
But Akerman noted that Manafort, who is 69 years old, could soon be facing life in jail.
