    Rep. William Jefferson was sentenced to 13 years for accepting bribes, you might remember him as the one with $90K wrapped in foil in his freezer. This was the longest sentence ever imposed on a congressman for taking bribes. This was the same judge that sentenced Manafort. Was the leniency shown to Manafort because of his party or his race?

    Let’s see what the Judge in New York has to say… Of course, THIS kind of stupidity is what we can expect if Fatso and Yertle the Turtle manage to pack the Courts with Republican Judges, like they are trying to do…

    Manafort was a criminal fired by his own firm for stealing money, kept his money offshore so he could circumvent taxes, he helped rehabilitate the image of leaders like Marcos after he assassinated his opponent, helped undermine the Ukraine and bring it into Putin’s orbit…this is blameless? By whose standards? The rich white Republicans, obviously…

    So this is the new enlightenment in sentencing in the GOP perspective: if he be white, rich with powerful friends he be my brother. Do not him up!

    “But if you add them both together, you’ll find that the average sentence is just about right!”

    Yes, and Ted Bundy led a blameless life until they found the first body.

    Nobody that Putin ordered trump to hire is blameless.

    As I posted elsewhere:

    Let’s all remind our Congresspeople that impeachment is not limited to Presidents, but can be levied against any and all federal officeholders, including judges at any level.

    US Constitution, Article II., Section. 4. “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

    Furthermore, from Article II. Section. 2. “[the President] shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.”
