Paul Manafort Court Ordered Detention Until Trial…

Regardless of what anyone might think about Paul Manafort individually, the fact that a federal judge is willing to put a white-collar defendant behind bars until trial  is absurd.  Paul Manafort has been charged with tax avoidance and financial crimes stemming from 2006 and 2009. [Detention order pdf below]  Manafort is accused of contacting a possible witness in the case; however, the prosecution refuses to tell Manafort who the witnesses or victims are.  His defense argues that it’s impossible to avoid contact with witnesses when the prosecution won’t tell the court who the witnesses are. So the judge throws him in jail.

Mueller is a rogue agent willing to tear down the constructs of the justice system in order to defend the inherent corruption within his beloved institutions.  Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said today it was “obnoxious to our Constitution” to put former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort behind bars prior to a trial.

“He has never been convicted of anything. He is as innocent as you and I,” Dershowitz said in an interview on MSNBC on Friday. “And the idea of locking somebody up before a trial is so obnoxious to our Constitution that every civil libertarian should be up in arms. What they can do if they think that he’s tampering with witnesses is: They can subject him to home arrest, take away his computer … they can have all kinds of restrictions, but the idea of putting somebody in jail before they’ve been convicted is an enactment of civil liberties.”

Dershowitz comments come after Manafort was taken to a federal jail on Friday after U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson revoked his current bail that permitted him out on house arrest and after he pleaded not guilty to charges of obstruction. He will stay at the federal jail until his trial in September. (read more)

    To investigate the investigators you must seek out unbiased constitutional obiding lawyers who are willing to sacrifice their very life seeking constitutional justice for the nation. Time to clean out justice department. In my humble opinion Sessions should be the 1st one replaced in the justice department and no he doesn’t have to be fired. He just needs to go along with the war plan to get along.

      You sure as H**l don’t want to recruit them from law schools….It’s the birthing place for constitutional law professors who go on to become activist judges after they’ve written a bunch of law review articles and maybe advised an Administration or two or a couple of years in the DOJ. I’ve never met a law school professor teaching Constitutional law who wasn’t rooting for every dirt bag client like OJ Simpson or anti-Scalia, Dershowitz included. I enjoy watching Dershowitz trying to reconcile his leftist background against his Constitutional conscience and coming out & saying what Mueller is trying to do to Trump and what he’s doing with every other defendant is flat-out wrong. Dershowitz & his wife have been excluded from some Hampton invitations in punishment for his support of the Constitution & inadvertently Pres. Trump.

      Had McConnell not stopped OVomit from ramming Ben Garland’s nomination thru the Senate, things would be a lot worse constitutionally-wise. It is bad enough as it is.

    Justice is for sale in America , just like aircraft and remote islands, only the rich can afford them. You and I don’t have Justice because we can’t afford it. All courts want your money.

    I had always thought that Manafort was a plant into the Trump campaign anyway, and therefore a black hat, but then how does this decision to jail him fit in with that? Why would they jail their own? Perhaps this judge does not realise? Anyway, in no way way do I agree with the reasoning given for his jailing.

      Q recently suggested Manafort was a plant. Maybe he’s been jailed to isolate him so he can’t spill any beans. Trump apparently hired him to make sure that Trump got the delegate votes he deserved from primary elections. Manafort did that job, then was terminated. Aside from info he has as a DC insider, going back decades, he probably doesn’t have much on Trump from the 2016 election campaign.

      If they’re pressuring him to give false testimony, that will blow up in their face.

      If their hope is, they get Manfort to say one thing, then they connive Trump to sit for an interview, and he says another thing, SO that’s grounds to subject him to an impeachment folderol or a criminal trial, for lying to the DOJ, that isn’t going to happen.

      Comey’s firing as an incompetent, highly biased boob, did not constitute any grounds for ‘Rod Rosenseintto hire Bob Mueller to investigate the firing as “obstruction of justice”. After Rosenstein recommended Comey’s firing.

    If anybody were going to stop Mueller and his gang, they would have been stopped already. Short of PTrump declaring marshall law, which he should but won’t since most of the country would freak out, there’s no stopping the lawlessness. I, like most, have awaited the cavalry to ride in and clean it up, but what do we see, Sessions praising Rosenstein and Wray and the only people that continue to suffer are those that were or are on our team.
    Is John Huber for real, maybe so maybe not, but even if he unleashes all these supposed indictments, unless Judges Hannen and Ellis are assigned to the cases, nothing will become of any of it. Military tribunals? Worked out pretty good for Bergdahl so not so sure about that either. The problem is the entrenched leftest ideology that we have ignored for the last 25 years has come home to roost. It will take at least as long to root it out as it did to infest our country. Pray and pass the ammunition.

    I assume that Mueller and the Obama judge think Manafort has information on Trump that he can be convinced to disclose by “squeezing” him. Franz Kafka would recognize the technique.

    I smell a rat! His name is Andrew Weissman, Mueller’s deputy. He’s a dirty cop, like James Comey. Read: Licensed to Lie by Sidney Powell.

      I smell a rat’s nest. What about supposed civil libertarian judge, Amy Berman Jackson? Manafort is obviously NOT a flight risk and the judge’s SENTENCING of Manafort on her unilateral “convictio”n of him for the alleged crime of Witness Tampering kinda put the cart before the horse, by denying him due process and a jury trial among other things. Manafort is as much entitled to a trial on Mueller’s new charge as he is on any of the many other charges Mueller has thrown Manafort’s way. Of course, not all of them have been controlled by Judge Jackson. Mueeler is apparently very angry that EDVA Judge Ellis had given Manafort hope that he would not be railroaded into jail, so Judge Jackson, a long time crony of Deep State Justice and its satellite firms (she was last at Plato Cacheris’s firm), is disabusing Manafort of any idea that he will get a fair shot by actually incarcerating him without the benefit of trial. HEIL!!
