it's a misdemeanor

it's a misdemeanor

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/453244/manafort-indictment-no-signs-trump-russia-collusion

 

"one cannot make a false statement on the foreign-agent registration form without also making a false statement to the government. Consequently, expect Manafort to argue that Mueller has violated double-jeopardy principles by charging the same exact offense in two separate counts, and that the special counsel is undermining Congress’s intent that the offense of providing false information on a foreign-agent registration form be considered merely a misdemeanor."

Yup. Manafort and Gates might have their cases thrown out, or plea down to 90 days of work release or community service.

 

Now as for that poor kid who had stars in his eyes, only wanting to “be somebody”, got himself listed by the Presifdent as a member of his Adviisory Team who lied to the FBI, a serious felony, and then confessed to it there needs to be real reasons that he’s not going to face hard time.  

 

Carter Page spilled his guts on live TV last night.  I don’t have any idea if that was a plan or spontaneous. But certainly fit with the kid’s case.

Said essentially that with Huck’s girl and Trump’s Tweets and other statements coming out of the WH staff over the kid being a “low level volunteer” or “the coffee boy” or, from the President, “a liar” that the administration’s only argument is that people they propped up in elevated advisory capacities don’t know what they are talking about.

News commentator here noted that Papadopoulos is being pointed to be the White House as a liar but they forgot that the truth he did not tell points to more contacts with Russian operators by him when he was working for the 'team'.

The guy running all of this appears to be rather good at his job.

Congress can cut him off at any moment that they agree to. Simple majorities.

They're with him. They want Trump gone more than you do. He's not one of them. They are the elite. They live by a different law.
