Unfortunately, from this article it appears that he can pardon M. if found guilty in the next trial.  I've been confused about pardons and still am a bit.

The President can pardon those convicted of federal crimes. He cannot pardon those convicted of state crimes.

I understand now that the prosecutors are going after federal crimes as well as state crimes.  It's possible (I think) that this could be the case for both Manafort and Cohen.  So it seems that no matter what federal crimes dt pardons, (if any) there is likely  going to be years in prison for both of his friends for their state crimes.

I am not sure I get your point. Are you saying the only difference between Manafort and Capone is that Capone had syphilis and (probably) Manafort does not? Interesting comparison.

You mean aside from syphillis being historically documented fact and that it doesn't fit the current alternative reality memes?

I don't see this as such a big problem for Trump - not as much as Michael Cohen pleading guilty today.

 

Michael Cohen is the one who can bring Trump down with his testimony. I heard potential election crimes - Stormy and the other model.

Manafort verdict:

  • 5 counts tax fraud: Guilty
  • 2 counts bank fraud: Guilty
  • 1 count failure to disclose foreign bank account: Guilty
  • 10 counts: Jury unable to reach consensus

 


Classic charges of which Al Capone was convicted and sentenced.


All we are missing is the syphilis that Capone died of while in prison.

Not comparing him to anyone, just commenting that when all else fails it's a sure fire charge.  Many of the liberals here could probably be sent up on the same charge if their returns were scrutinized close enough.  Especially with their attempted ability to take something and turn it into some nefarious.


Actually, Capone was convicted of (just) tax evasion while Manafort was convicted of BANK FRAUD and tax evasion. Yes Republicans, it really IS against the law to avoid paying your taxes.  I see Trump just announced that this "has nothing to do with me".  A short message to Manafort that the promised pardon has been lost in the mail?
