Trump’s Fmr. Lackey Dries Up – Manafort Is Going To JAIL Per Federal Judge (DETAILS)

Donald Trump’s former Campaign Chair has been in a world of trouble lately. He has been indicted on too many charges to count, and then, while out on bail with an ankle monitor, Manafort chose to obstruct justice by tampering with witnesses. Of course, Special Counsel Robert Mueller got him on that, and on Friday, June 15th, 2018, he was to report to court to see just what his fate would be.

Well, it seems that federal judges don’t take well to witness tampering and obstruction of justice. Manafort’s bail was revoked, and he is now being remanded to jail to await trial for his many crimes.  Prosecutors in the case said:

“The defendants…knowingly and intentionally conspired to corruptly persuade (the witnesses identified as D1 and D2) with intent to influence, delay and prevent the testimony of any person in an official proceeding.”

While Trump is sure to insist that Manafort, even as campaign chair, did nothing with his presidential run, there’s simply no reason to believe this lie. Manafort will have a long, hot run in the crossbar hotel to think about whether or not he will flip on Trump. He likely will. Like Trump, Manafort is pushing 70. If he is indicted and convicted on these crimes, he’ll spend the rest of his lousy life in jail. He doesn’t want that.

At the end of the day, Manafort violated the law, and then the terms of his release. He is going to JAIL. Wonder how many other Trump officials – and even Trump himself – will follow in his footsetps?
