CNN: “First, Donald Trump’s former campaign chair was sentenced to a total of 7.5 years in federal prison for a decade’s worth of financial and lobbying crimes, conspiracy and obstruction of justice.”

“Less than an HOUR later, Manafort got a one-two punch, of sorts, when the Manhattan district attorney announced state fraud charges against him.”

“The district attorney in New York charged Manafort with mortgage fraud, falsifying business records and conspiracy. Manafort has not yet entered a plea in that case.”

“And on top of it, President Donald Trump is being publicly pressured against any sort of immediate pardon for Manafort.”
