DOJ Appears to Block Manafort Transfer to Rikers Island…

An interesting and moderately positive development in the ongoing fiasco surrounding the prosecution of Paul Manafort.  According to the New York Times, Attorney General William Barr’s top deputy, Jeffrey Rosen, sent a letter to New York state prosecutors saying Main Justice was monitoring the planned transfer of Mr. Manafort.

Following the DOJ letter, the decision to transfer Manafort to Rikers Island was reversed.

(Via New York Times) … [L]ast week, Manhattan prosecutors were surprised to receive a letter from the second-highest law enforcement official in the country inquiring about Mr. Manafort’s case. The letter, from Jeffrey A. Rosen, Attorney General William P. Barr’s new top deputy, indicated that he was monitoring where Mr. Manafort would be held in New York.

And then, on Monday, federal prison officials weighed in, telling the Manhattan district attorney’s office that Mr. Manafort, 70, would not be going to Rikers.

Instead, he will await his trial at a federal lockup in Manhattan or at the Pennsylvania federal prison where he is serving a seven-and-a-half-year sentence for wide-ranging financial schemes, according to people with knowledge of the matter. (more)

The decision to transfer Manafort to Rikers Island was yet another transparent effort by political operatives within the justice system to use extreme measures against their political opposition…. Unfortunately, the Obama legacy -via the weaponization of law enforcement- continues.

George Zimmerman, Officer Darren Wilson, The Baltimore Six, Paul Manafort, Mike Flynn and Roger Stone were/are simply targets for political retaliation by career political operatives, political ideologues, now embedded within a severely corrupt justice system.

Perhaps the decision to stop some of the extremism is a small indication U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr is attempting to restore some semblance of justice to a thoroughly corrupt enterprise.

      Yes, lets. With baseball bats, batons, and bricks judiciously applied. As in street justice, which will be the only justice they’ll understand or ever have here on earth, because NO USAG will ever stand up to these thugs.

      That leaves the American people, and there’s no shortage of those willing to apply the aforementioned tools of justice exactly where they need to be applied: from head to toe.

      True justice will be ours at the last judgement, when these vile sons of Satan are thrown into the lake of fire, never to die but live in painful torment eternally.

      There’s no past in eternity. And no future. Eternity is so vast it encompasses and eradicates past and future. For those condemned to hell, there will never hope for a future release; and they will understand that. If you study the realities of eternal damnation and eternal life with the Lord, you might almost feel sorry for the condemned; except for the scum who’ve destroyed America, from the media to movies to politicians, some of them just plain deserve to be in hell forever.

    I am starting to get a little impatient waiting for these Dems to pay for what they did and will continue to do if there are no consequences suffered by these reprobates. It will only get worse.

      The left is, again, in a win-win. Do nothing, and they get away with it. Rise up, and they get the chaos and civil war they’ve been provoking us into.

    I have a question that hopefully someone here with expert knowledge can answer.

    Is there a log of all the 702 About and other searches done through the NSA? If so, could that log be searched and counts made of Americans caught in those searches? That information could be extremely enlightening!

    The attempt to further demonize citizen Manafort by sending him to Rikers Island was yet another example of the black hats seeing how far they can push and what they can get away with. This slap down by the white hats now running the DOJ is a good sign, a very good sign indeed.

    I never understood how a judge could literally order a prisoner to be taken to a specific facility. Under separation of powers, if the prisoner is in the custody of the executive (corrections), they decide his place of residence. The judicial branch can recommend, but not order.

    This made no sense to me at all.

    “…effort by political operatives within the justice system to use extreme measures against their political opposition…” All this bad politically motivated DOJ behavior must of happened after 1993, AG Barr’s first term under G.H.W. Bush, under Bubba Clinton, go figure.

      Barr aka “Robert Johnson” was the disburser of laundered CIA drug money in Mena Ark. In the 1980’s, WHEN BJ WAS GOVERNOR.
      He got a nice cash payment to keep quiet so they could use the airstrip.

      This missing drug money provided support to a subsequent meeting in Little Rock, described by Terry Reed, during which William Barr accused Clinton of siphoning drug money and that this had to stop.

      There was a showdown between Clinton and the White House/N SC/CIA gang.This meeting took place in an ammunition bunker at Camp Robinson near Little Rock, and included CatheylOliver North, Gomez/ Felix Rodriguez, and “the man in charge, “Robert Johnson/ William Barr who ran the meeting as William Casey’s personal representative.

      Johnson’s purpose was to extricate Washing­ ton from what was becoming a messy situation in Arkansas. There were widespread rumors all over the place about the dirty operations; too much was becoming exposed. Johnson promised to fix any federal investigation,, but he informed Clinton that the operations were being pulled out.

      From: Terry Reed’s book COMPROMISED: BUSH, CLINTON, AND THE CIA. Reed was at the meeting too

        He may have been in the Contra Scandal, but He is Protected from all of that. He Will prosecute Schiallary and all the rest of the swamp creatures. He has No other choice. Unless he alone wants to bear the burden of starting Civil War 2.0 in America. In short, those days are over and gone. No Demoncrat can or will try to expose him as they are all 100% Compromised by Current Events as well as past. Nice post though, I just disagree with you on it.

    Well played by the AG. The deep staters will routinely expose themselves because they are used to doing it without consequences. In allowing federal employees enough rope to hang themselves, their acts invite scrutiny not just about this process and act, but others that perhaps transgress the rights of others and open the door to their own prosecutions.


  11. doohmax says:

    Not a Manafort fan at all, but it was pretty obvious to any rational person that he was being punished mentally and physically by the DOJ cabal for his refusal to turn on Trump. The Podestas were guilty of the same actions concerning the foreign agent registration process and they walked. If Manafort had not associated himself with the Trump campaign, these charges would never have been brought.

    Hope this is true.. It’s an outrage that Manafort for what he was convicted of, let alone at his age, to be remanded to Rikers. I was locked up there a long time ago for a case in which I couldn’t make bail which was B.S. anyway that was eventually dismissed and which I got sealed. Rikers is Gladiator School man. A lot of the hacks are sadists, drug dealers, and flat out punks as long. And less. And there is NO such thing as “solitary” there. I wish I could help him.


  13. Cocoon says:

    SDNY is not its own.
    Barr and DOJ continue to keep them within their lane.
    Prosecuting individuals does not need to be inhuman. Rikers Island solitary confinement is not suitable for an unhealthy 70 year old white collar criminal.

    I am glad to see this. I wrote to AG Barr about the Riker’s solitary. It is torture for a white collar crime that others (Podestas) were not even charged even though they did the same thing.

    Wouldn’t Rosen be the third highest law enforcement official in the country behind his immediate boss, William Barr, and of course President Donald Trump?

    Perhaps the correct charge for these gangsters is RICO since they have demonstrated a pattern of corruption spanning decades and involving a group of conspirators. The accused in the “Mafia Commision” trial received sentences of 100 years.


    • cattastrophe says:

      The mafia commission trial might as well have happened a hundred years ago in a different galaxy compared to what our justice system has morphed into. The left has taken over our justice system just like it’s taken over our education system, Hollywood and all entertainment, the news media, etc. All of those entities are now engaged in creating chaos, division and moral decay.


  17. Bob Parker says:

    It is about G-D time that SOMETHING was done by DOJ on bahalf of Mannafort.

    I mean JHC, they have been keeping the guy in SOLITARY CONFINEMENT indefintiely!!

    Waht about “cruel & ususual punishment”??

    Each & every one of the prosecutors (Fed & State) + the Obama OCL (Obama Crotch Licking) judge (Amy Vermin Jackson?) must ultiamtely held to account for this travesty of justice!!

    Banana Republics do this kind of stuff (i.e. political prosecutions/punishments), not the US!!

    Manafort has dirt and leverage on Herr Mueller cabal of some sort.


  19. Laramie Evan says:

    Yep. More than anything, it is the Justice Department that is corrupt. They’re worse than the FBI, CIA and NSA.

    Isn’t it ironic that the Left pines for an obstruction of justice charge against Trump?

    I frequently heard the refrain that you can’t “obstruct” if the underlying charge lacks merit. That’s false.

    But, the real inquiry is: Can you obstruct a process with no semblance of justice whatsoever? Clearly, you can’t unless that same perverted process is used to prosecute the obstruction charge.


  20. Alan Reasin says:

    The original investigation was dropped years ago. I agree with you completely. And white collar criminals do not get the treatment he has gotten. This needless treatment violates his civil rights even if he is a convicted felon. Seems regular felons have more rights than
    Trump supporters/ associates.


  21. PBR says:

    That’s very clever of Rosen to approach it the way he did. No muscle, just- “we are watching”.
