Manafort should be pardoned

Considering the left is drooling over the possibility of putting Manafort in jail for LIFE!! I think Trump should pardon him as soon as the goonies finish convicting him.

1.) I am not afraid of Manafort, why put him in jail for life he isn't violent or dangerous.

2.) The only reason they even looked at him is the whole BS witch hunt for Trump, if he owes taxes fine let him pay the back taxes.
Why don't we go to school and work on the weekends and take the week off!

    I don't think that Mueller and the NY US Attorney thought Manafort would actually go to trial. They thought he'd flip on Trump. I'm not sure Manafort is deserving a pardon, especially at this point until the evidence is heard.

    Manafort spent a lot of taxpayer money for personal luxuries.

    Manafort is the quintessential low-life swamp dweller. He appears to be upstanding and hard working. In reality he is a slime ball liar cheat Elite that the rules do not apply to. He is no different than the Clinton Crime Family only he is a bigger hog.

    The man hid millions, lied about it and is now doing the perp dance.

    Lock his * up for life after his tampering with witnesses and tax evasion convictions. He deserves it.

    As long as the Obama's and Clinton's and their crews can see the light of day, why not!

    I don't know squat about Manafort, but if you use yahoo for more than 5 minutes and don't see they are as biased as they come, you are blind. That is clearly a hit piece that you linked to, pretty much even comes right out and says it...

    Now maybe the guy is a dirt ball, I don't know, just saying yahoo wouldn't be my card to throw out there as any type of proof.

    When a tax evader is looking at 310 years and gangbangers get short time something is wrong.

    This is 100% political, look at who is prosecuting and tell me it isn?t. They are going to squeeze him with this untill he fingers Trump for anytbing even if it is fictional. Pure left wing political stunt move.

    Although I?m sure Barzilla is having an orgasm right now.

    I don't think that I would use the words "poor" & "Manafort" in the same sentence (unless that's meant to be funny).

    When you're involved in business deals involving hundreds of millions of dollars, you can't act like, "Gee, I didn't realize I had to pay tax on that." And, you can't be surprised when things go awry while you are dealing with oligarchs in Eastern Europe.

    Still, if I were a juror, I would start out with an assumption of innocence, & make certain that the government PROVES it's case if they want me to convict.

    Not denying that a tax evader needs punished but if you look at what?s happening right now and stop being a leftist cheerleader you would see that this is 100% political, 310 years,,,, really??? We don?t punish gangbanging murderers that harshly.

    BTW, did it feel good?

    He may be dirty but he only got singled out due to Trump winning and the left being butt hurt. Plenty of tax dodgers in the past admin some still haven't paid.

    I don't condone his crimes but the manner in which he is being singled out.

    Al Sharpton still owes around $7,000,000 in back taxes and continues to walk the streets a free man.

    Manafort may be dirty but this is a political hit piece and it is ugly and a sham on our justice system.

    These scumbags have perverted the US Justice system so bad that people would rather die that get caught up in it. They know the system will destroy them even if they are innocent.

    Exactly what sort of character are you exhibiting if you are in support of such a harsh penalty for tax evasion?

    You keep laying the bricks.. which are more like wood hay and stubble.

    That is pouring like an avalanche

    He may not need a pardon he might walk.

    From what little I have seen the prosecution is going down the wrong path.

    30 years max for multiple counts of tax evasion doesn't seem particularly harsh, if he gets the full sentence possible.

    He could have gotten far less with a guilty plea, or cooperation.

    His choice.
    Your statement was in support of 310 years. Changing your tune? Good.

    I said nothing about 310 years, nor tax evasion.

    I said that his character would be his destiny.

    And I implied that he deserves justice, and not sympathy.

    I'll stay with that thought, at this point.

    Especially since he has refused to offer his cooperation, or admit any guilt.

    Whatever you inferred from that in judgement of me, is a product of your own heart.

    So, do you think Manafort should be pardoned, if convicted ?
    Your question belies your lack of belief.

    Good chance Manafort will walk. If so it will discredit Mueller.
    Mueller never thought Manafort would go to trial.

    Is there anybody who hasn't evaded taxes to some degree or another here? Is it evasion or self defense? Do you know that if you make money on a yard sale you must report the income and it is taxable but it you loose money on one you cannot deduct it. Item by item.
