Deep state sends message to Manafort and others

It looks like the deep state is giving it all they've got in an effort to intimidate former Trump associate Pual Manafort and others


(INTELLIHUB) — Paul Manafort’s pretrial release conditions were reneged by a judge on Friday at Robert Mueller’s request under the premise of “witness tampering” and the former Trump associate was sentenced to jail ahead of his September trial in what can only be considered a message from the deep state.

Now, some say, a 65-year-old Manafort may never see the light of day again and may possibly spend the rest of his life behind bars.

“It could be the beginning of a life sentence,” former Watergate prosecutor Nick Akerman said on Friday. “Paul Manafort, if he does not cooperate, may never ever see the outside of a jail cell.”

The Hill reports:

Mueller filed a superseding indictment against Manafort earlier, accusing him of obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

Manafort is scheduled to go to trial in September over charges including tax evasion, bank fraud, money laundering and failing to register as a foreign agent with the Justice Department.

Do you think Manafort was striped of his house arrest privileges and thrown in jail as a warning to him and others to comply or get squashed?
