This is what Trump was trying to distract from this morning.

Courtesy of WaPo:

A federal judge ordered Paul Manafort to jail Friday over charges he tampered with witnesses while out on bail — a major blow for President Trump’s former campaign chairman as he awaits trial on federal conspiracy and money-laundering charges next month.

“You have abused the trust placed in you six months ago,’’ U.S. District Court judge Amy Berman Jackson told Manafort. “The government motion will be granted and the defendant will be detained.”

Manafort, dressed in a blue suit and red tie, was led out of the courtroom by security officers. He turned and gave a last look and wave to his wife, seated in the well of the court. She nodded back to him.

The order to incarcerate Manafort capped a months-long fight over the terms of his bail. He had been asking to post a $10 million bond and end seven months of home detention.

Boy this “witch hunt” of Robert Mueller’s certainly seems to be rounding up more than its fair share of witches. 

I can hardly wait to watch Trump’s Twitter account explode in response to this. 

Update: As predicted Trump limbered up the old Twitter fingers and jumped right in. 


I suppose the sarcasm is an attempt to hide the abject terror.

    Fuckin’ senile dotard can’t read or comprehend! “Wow, what a tough sentence…”; what the fuck??? There was NO trial yet, NOR was any conviction handed down!! Looks like the “stable genius” learned jack-shit at Wharton! What an awful embarrassment for them!! To paraphrase one of fatso’s late professors, “he was the most goddamned, laziest, stupidest student I ever taught”!!

      All the dotard thinks he needs to solve any problem or reach any conclusion about a matter is what he “thinks.” He doesn’t seem to understand that what he “thinks” is always wrong. You’re right, he is an embarrassment, and not only at a national level but at an international level.

        He thinks that he’s above everything and will walk off scot free.
        A Republican controlled congress will let him, too, because they don’t have the balls and are worried about their own butts.

    What’s the penalty for rig tampering?

    I have a new neighbor!!! Paul Manafort is in the Northern Neck Regional Jail, Warsaw, VA, about 2.5 hours south of DC, 15 minutes west of me. Should I go visit? Visitation is 2:15 – 3:15 Friday only.

    Does ‘manafort’ mean ‘huge gaping vagina’ in Urdu?
