Re: Paul Manafort

Uh, WTF.

Quote:
Specifically, contrary to Manafort’s assertions about his jail conditions, Manafort is in a private unit in which he can review materials and prepare for trial*. Moreover, he is not confined to a cell. Between the hours of 8:30am to 10:00pm, Manafort has access to a separate workroom at the jail to meet with his attorneys and legal team. Visitor logs from the prison indicate that each week Manafort has had multiple visits with his legal team.

Manafort also has a personal telephone in his unit, which he can use over twelve hours a day to speak with his attorneys. According to prison telephone logs, in the last three weeks Manafort has had over 100 phone calls with his attorneys, and another 200 calls with other persons. Those telephone logs indicate Manafort has spoken to his attorneys every day, and often multiple times a day. Manafort also possesses a personal laptop that he is permitted to use in his unit to review materials and prepare for trial. The jail has made extra accommodations for Manafort’s use of the laptop, including providing him an extension cord to ensure the laptop can be used in his unit and not just in the separate workroom.

* Among the unique privileges Manafort enjoys at the jail are a private, self-contained living unit, which is larger than other inmates’ units, his own bathroom and shower facility, his own personal telephone, and his own workspace to prepare for trial. Manafort is also not required to wear a prison uniform. On the monitored prison phone calls, Manafort has mentioned that he is being treated like a “VIP.”

Re: Paul Manafort

If he gets pardoned he can still be compelled to testify and can't take the 5th.

since that's more than one step ahead of where he is right now, i'm positive he hasn't considered it

Starting to think Manafort might be dumber than Trump, but then Trump opens his mouth again

Manafort sounds like the type of character who has gotten away with so much for so long that he comes to believe he's invincible. (His daughter's instant messaging posts leaked to the internet appear to confirm this unflattering portrayal of her father.) The late Dominick Dunne wrote about people like Manafort. According to Dunne, privileged people delude themselves into believing they can get away with anything. They believe the rules don't apply to them.

I would love to see the look on Manafort's face when the jury pronounces him "Guilty" on enough counts to send him up the river for 200 years. Manafort's lawyers are probably stroking his ego telling him he has a good chance of beating the rap and the prosecutors are dummies. Manafort is delusional enough to believe them.

Of course, it only takes one of twelve jurors to hang a jury, so maybe Manafort knows something we don't ...

Re: Paul Manafort
