    Oh, I'd hoped you were going to say you volunteered for it.

    Thrown in prison and given solitary confinement and hasn't even had a trial yet. All in an effort to bring Trump down. Disgusting.

    "You don't really care about Mr. Manafort's bank fraud," [District Court Judge] Ellis said to prosecutor Michael Dreeben, at times losing his temper. Ellis said prosecutors were interested in Manafort because of his potential to provide material that would lead to Trump's "prosecution or impeachment."

    A Republican judge doesn't like the Russia probe. Shocking.

    Unless the judge can cite legitimate reasons to not move forward with a trial, like lack of evidence, etc., he needs to STFU. This is like denying Al Capone's trial because investigators "weren't really interested in tax evasion".

    That's old news; Judge Ellis subsequently ruled, as I predicted he would, that the charges were legally valid and set a trial date. http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/394254-judge-denies-manaforts-motion-to-dismiss-indictment
