1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Here comes the Trump-Russia chilling effect

  •  
  •

  •  


George Papadopoulos reported to federal prison today to serve a fourteen day sentence he could have avoided, if he’d simply been honest with Special Counsel Robert Mueller during their cooperation period. Then, tonight, we learned that Paul Manafort is going to spend the rest of his natural life in prison, because he also lied to Mueller. Now here comes the Trump-Russia chilling effect on everyone else.



Manafort and Papadopoulos must have truly thought they could lie to Mueller and not get caught. They thought they could cut deals, fail to fully cooperate, and still skate. Even after Papadopoulos got busted for it, he still thought he could convince a judge to keep him out of prison because of an ongoing legal challenge to Mueller’s prosecutorial authority. The judge shot that down in short order, because it’s not how anything works. But Manafort has blown it even worse.




Even if Donald Trump were to try to pardon Paul Manafort, it wouldn’t give Manafort his freedom, because that’s not how pardons work. Instead, Manafort’s chances of maybe getting out of prison before he dies have now essentially dropped to zero. Because of what’s transpired here, the judge is going to drop the hammer on him at sentencing.


So now all the other Trump-Russia players out there, whether they’ve cut a cooperation deal like Michael Flynn and Rick Gates, or they’re simply material witnesses, have just seen what happens if you try to cheat on Robert Mueller. Not only do you get caught, you end up doing prison time – potentially serious time – that you might have otherwise been able to avoid. It should create a chilling effect that’ll make everyone else think twice about trying to con Mueller.

Russia – Mother Jones: Mueller’s Team Just Said Manafort Lied to Investigators After His Plea Deal

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

On Monday evening prosecutors from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team said Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman, lied to investigators after agreeing to a plea deal back in September. 

“After signing the plea agreement, Manafort committed federal crimes by lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Special Counsel’s Office on a variety of subject matters, which constitute breaches of the agreement,” prosecutors say in the filing.

The filing means that Manafort, unless he starts talking fast—and honestly—may swiftly receive a sentence that puts him in federal prison for the rest of his life. Manfort was found guilty tax evasion and other charges in federal court in Virginia in August. The following month, he pleaded guilty to money laundering, illegal lobbying, and conspiracy charges in federal court in Washington and agreed to a deal predicated on answering “fully, truthfully, completely and forthrightly” questions of interest to the government. His sentencing had been delayed while he cooperated with the investigation, but now that he’s violated the deal, it’s likely he’ll be sentenced shortly. 

Prosecutors did not describe on Monday exactly how Manafort allegedly lied, though they said they will file “a detailed sentencing submission to the Probation Department and the Court in advance of sentencing that sets forth the nature of the defendant’s crimes and lies, including those after signing the plea agreement herein.”

Manafort’s lawyers offered a somewhat muted response in the same filing:

After signing the plea agreement, Manafort met with the government on numerous occasions and answered the government’s questions. Manafort has provided information to the government in an effort to live up to his cooperation obligations. He believes he has provided truthful information and does not agree with the government’s characterization or that he has breached the agreement. Given the conflict in the parties’ positions, there is no reason to delay the sentencing herein, and he asks the Court to set a sentencing date in this matter.
