    Lawyers for Paul Manafort are now in intense negotiations with prosecutors from the Robert Mueller team. Manafort is now a convicted felon, and has only one card to play if he doesn't want to spend the rest of what's left of his lying corrupt life in prison - cooperation. So is another Trump weasel ready to flip, or will he continue to rot in jail and hang on to his fading chances for a pardon?



    Also - Interesting book out from a Republican strategist. 🙂

    No surprise. It was just a matter of time.

    He will get a pardon. Trump has given subtle indications of that although he can only pardon Manafort for federal convictions, not state convictions.
    I think he has only been convicted of some federal charges so far. I don't think he is worried about those.

    Trump won't dare at least until after the elections. The only reason for a Manafort pardon is to serve his coverup and everybody (but apparently you) knows it. Trump's seen a noticeable drop in his approval rate since the Manafort guilty verdict and Cohen plea going from a net -8.5% to -12.8% in the RealClearPolitics aggregate of polls and -11% to -13.8% at 538, dipping into the high 30's in the most reliable polls like Quinnipiac and Marist. Even Trump knows a pardon of Manafort would be political dynamite.

    This just in! Manafort caves like a cheap pup tent in a hurricane. Pleads guilty. Will cooperate with prosecutors. I guess rotting in jail for awhile brought about a whole new attitude. 🙂

    And you seriously think Trump will pardon Manny if he indeed flips? He will then be yet another enemy and if you don't think so, ask Jeff Sessions what HE thinks.

    Sessions has done everything Trump wanted him to do except recuse himself of the investigations so it is clear all the BS Sessions did for Trump was meaningless, didn't mean jack to Trump, his ONLY interest is saving his sorry ass and NOTHING else is on his mind. So prove me wrong. Most recently now literally denying 3000 people died in Puerto Rico from the hurricane last year, claiming it is all the democrats fault, a person dies of old age, put him on the list.

    Just OOZING with empathy. Perhaps you remember him throwing paper towels out like the first godfather in the film, the guy putting dollar bills on the statue?

    According to the Book of Daniel (*) Manafort will develop Alzheimer's disease in 6 to 9 months and then Trump will just have to pardon him. Manafort will have a miraculous recovery.

    (*) Referring to a particularly silly thread in the Science Forum.
