It's getting lonely on Trump Island

Hey remember when Manafort was a "good man" and "It’s a very sad thing that happened. This has nothing to do with Russian collusion"? Yeah, not so much anymore.

It's getting lonely on Trump Island

And for you kids keeping track at home, this is the 5th person from tRump's campaign to pleed guilty thanks to the Mueller investigation.

In other fun news
Quote:
Manafort is surrendering an estimated $46 million worth of cash and real estate as part of his plea deal.
The longtime Republican operative also agreed to cooperate with Mueller's investigations into possible collusion by President Donald Trump's campaign with Russians who interfered in the 2016 election.
Take my Trump Tower apartment instead of my money, Manafort tells Mueller
LOL

what was the actual charge he pleaded to?
a bit more detail than "On Friday, Manafort pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy and obstruction,"...

I believe you will find that conspiracy and obstruction are legal terms for the charges he pled to.

He pled guilt to 7 counts including those the jury was hung on in his trial.

So far Manafort is guilty of:
Tax fraud
Bank fraud
False statements to the FBI
Being an unregistered agent of a foreign principal
Obstruction of Justice.

Time line for those charges he plead guilty to? I really GAS what someone was doing ten years ago in the private sector that was not against our government.
Unlike the ilk that BHO hung with, radical bombers etc.

Its ok for someone you percieve as an ally to hide millions received from another government for "consulting" and evade taxes on it?

That's what they got Capone on.... tax evastion, though the charges Manaford pled guilty to are much worse.

You should do some research about Manafort, he's only on one team and that's money.

Manofort has always worked in and on the sidelines of politics.

I think you should speak to your Congressperson about this. Them them, that in your opinion, on jury is necessary. You have made the decision based on what you think you know.

Evidence? Who needs it? After all, in Trump world there are those that are guilty and those that decide guilt.

As the Red Queen said: Verdict first, then the trial!

The crimes that Manny pled guilty to were over ten years ago. And they were against out government then.

So if someone was against out government during the Obama years.... That's OK?

Remember: The crimes he said he committed were to make him rich at the expense of us all. In Conservative world I guess that's just find and dandy?

Conservatives can't separate Trump's people from Trump. They don't understand that a lot of those pleading guilty were taking advantage of Trump all along for their own greed.

Trump just wants to be told he's right. So they would tell him whatever it took to string him along.

And these people are criminals. They broke the law and they scammed the president of the US. Even Trump is having trouble coming to grips with this.

Yeah, it's true. Trump's easy to play for a chump. These criminals saw this and moved in.

I can't understand why Trump lovers can't see that Muller is protecting Trump from being used by bad actors. I guess it will take Trump himself to finally realize this before they will.
