So the judge that Trump praised at a NRA rally (for giving Mueller a tongue-lashing) just gave Manafort a hilarious dressing down. But first we need to know how we got here. Last week, Manafort's lawyers were publicizing the fact that Manafort was in solitary confinement 23 hours a day, trying to create public sentiment that it was unfair for Manafort to be in prison because it hindered his ability to mount a legal defense. Well, Mueller said, "Fuck that shit." and gave the judge transcripts of Manafort bragging (on monitored phone calls) about the VIP treatment he was receiving in his private cell that was really more of a private suite. https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/4594533/7-11-18-US-Oppo-Manafort-Motion-to-Continue.pdf https://www.rawstory.com/2018/07/mu...afort-hes-caught-boasting-vip-treatment-jail/ Around the same time, his lawyers filed a panicked motion to prevent Manafort from being transferred out of the VIP suite that they were trying to portray as 23 hours of hell. The judge said, "Shut your idiot word hole, you're going to a real prison." (I guess the lawyers thought their complaining would result in Manafort being released instead of just transferred to another prison.) https://lawandcrime.com/high-profil...-how-to-handle-terrorists-traitors-and-spies/ I'm enjoying watching a rich, corrupt criminal complain that jail is getting in the way of his daily activities.
