Blind Justice For Some

Paul John Manafort Jr. is an American lobbyist, political consultant, and convicted felon. The Republican joined Donald Trump's presidential campaign team in March 2016 and was promoted to campaign chairman from June to August 2016.

Paul Manafort’s slap on the wrist is a good example of American injustice in action While in school I may have spent more time in detention and inside the principals' office than he will now serve in his prison sentence.

Why did the judge throw a prosecutor's guidelines out the window? Some say he was against presiding over this trial from the very beginning and made it clear he was going to conduct the trial the way he saw fit, even reprimanding prosecutors in front of the jury numerous times. He said, he is Caesar in his Rome, and he was going to do it his own way,

Next week Manafort will be sentenced in another case in Washington, where a different jurist will decide whether he can serve both sentences at the same time or if he will have to serve them consecutively.
