So truth isn’t truth but anonymous sources which Trump says should never be believed can nonetheless exonerate him. Ok.

I agree that Trump is a Queens thug. He does not have the accent, but everything else fits.

He is not very good at it.

You can agree or disagree with Marcy Wheeler's conclusions in any given essay she writes; but she always provides a full plate of food for thought, often compacted into just a few paragraphs. There is a lot of interesting stuff in this one.
:snippity: MANAFORT GOT VERY LITTLE (THAT WE CAN SEE) FROM HIS PLEA DEAL
NB from the bottom of Marcy's essay:
As I disclosed July, I provided information to the FBI on issues related to the Mueller investigation, so I’m going to include disclosure statements on Mueller investigation posts from here on out. I will include the disclosure whether or not the stuff I shared with the FBI pertains to the subject of the post.

https://www.emptywheel.net/2018/09/14/t ... lers-case/

The comments on Marcy's blog are well-worth reading as well as the essays themselves. I could never make a comment over there; I would be drawn, quartered, and then hung out to dry for all to ridicule. Fogbowzers, especially our IAALs, are much gentler, for which I am grateful. :bighug:

I think they are like domestic abuse victims and suffer from Stockholm Syndrome. Once separated and having no contact with the adored controller, the scales gradually fall from their eyes as they see him distance himself from them and their own legal situation becomes very clear. In Manafort's case, his wife was his partner in one of the foreign lobbying entities putting her at risk for federal charges.

I'm going to take "Donald Trump Jr." as the next person to do the indictiment/cooperation routine. If it happens I expect full bragging rights, if it doesn't, I expect my prediction to be forgotten. Please make a note of it.

FTR, I put myself through the entire hour of Maria Bartilomo's (sp?) show on Fox to see what was said about Manafort's plea and cooperation. Crickets. None of the Repubs she interviewed could say his name either, just all those wicked peeps at the DOJ and Clinton campaign and their evil doing.

The U.S. assets of Oleg Deripaska, the Russian oligarch very closely linked to Manafort, have been frozen.
The New York City mansion of Oleg Deripaska—the Russian oligarch very closely linked to Paul Manafort—has been frozen alongside all of his U.S. assets, according to the New York Post. U.S. officials say Deripaska, who made his billions in aluminum, is close with Vladimir Putin and is allegedly involved in murder, money-laundering, bribery and racketeering. His assets include a mansion at 11 East 64th St. but he has reportedly arranged to have the children and ex-wife of business partner and fellow oligarch Roman Abramovich live there in his place. Deripaska bought the East Side property for $42.5 million in 2008, property records show.

Judge orders Paul Manafort, convicted felon, to wear prison clothes to court
Trump’s former campaign chairman wanted to wear a professional suit to court but was denied by Judge T. S. Ellis
Matthew Rozsa
October 17, 2018 7:39pm (UTC)

President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was told by a judge that he has to wear prison clothes to his sentencing hearing instead of the professional attire that the disgraced political adviser wanted.

"Defendant has moved to appear in a suit rather than prison attire," Judge T. S. Ellis wrote in a court order. "Defendants who are in custody post-conviction are, as a matter of course, not entitled to appear for sentencing or any other hearing in street clothing. This defendant should be treated no differently from other defendants who are in custody post-conviction."

In a footnote, Ellis explained that Manafort had been allowed to wear street clothing at his trial because the 1976 case Estelle v. Williams determined that a defendant "should not be compelled to go to trial in prison or jail clothing because of the possible impairment" of their right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. Ellis added that, because Manafort has subsequently been convicted of crimes including "subscribing to false federal income tax returns, failing to register foreign bank accounts, and bank fraud and also recently pled guilty to other criminal charges in the District of Columbia," the former campaign chairman "is no longer presumed innocent" and "therefore is not entitled to appear in street clothing at court proceedings."
