    Well that’s the problem. If you’re white and rich you get lenient sentences. It doesn’t matter how many women you brutally rape at Stanford or how many warlords and oligarchs you help, you can do anything you want. Grab em by the *****!

    But heaven forbid you’re a person of color with a plant. Throw the book at em!

    So I wanna know, is he an activist judge? Or a constitutional one? I’m not happy with this weak *** sentence. So is he activist? Is this the deep state that republicans have been telling me for years who’ve had it in for trump? Or it mueller the deep state person cuz of golf and Comey and mumble mumble mumble

    At least he’s going on trial elsewhere. I hope this piece of **** rots along with Cohen, Stone, and Trump.

    I believe this explains yesterday's sentence, and it was not the only time the judge criticized prosecuters during the trial:

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/04/politics/paul-manafort-hearing/index.html

    At next week's sentencing on two charges, he can receive a maximum sentence of 10 years. The judge in that case can rule that the time be served consecutively, not concurrently. At least listening to the pundits discuss all this last night, we might expect it to be a consecutive sentence.

    I read this last one and two thoughts immediately come to mind.

    The first is that we still have a ton of work to do on criminal justice reform and achieving fairness in sentencing and prosecution.

    The second is that y’all gonna have a lot to bitch about over the next 2 years.

    Indeed. And we patriots, we defenders of our constitution, will be identified as the enemies of America, the "enemies of the people". As for the cult of personality and flag hugging Americanism, the beat will go on, and the blind will remain blind.

    Oh jeez. There you go again. ALL LIVES MATTER, red! You sound like one of those socialist OAC anti-American commies, suggesting that there’s a different set of justice for the white and affluent and the blacks and poor. ALL LIVES MATTER! Go back to Venezuela! If blacks packing $20 worth of a plant don’t want to be sent to prison for decades, then they should pull themselves up by their own bootstraps and commit tax fraud crimes, like Paul Manafort and Wall Street tycoon Stephen Cohen (if you liked Bad Blood read Black Edge).

    You’d think reforming our justice system to be less punitive on things like marijuana and be much harsher on this type of stuff would be something that republicans and democrats could get behind.

    But republicans would never support a more judges with a more progressive view on tax fraud and campaign finance because guns, abortions or something.

    The funny thing on twitter right now is to see people who previously whines about the judicial system having it in for Trump and his cult, suddenly silent. It’s almost as if the “deep state” only exists when it goes against Donald trump. Funny how the paranoid and delusional only see things the way they want.

    I’ll give some of the people constantly speaking about this labels such as patriot and principled. Like yourself for example. Others I won’t. Some in your camp, generally speaking, are simply in a different cult. They themselves are blind people.

    But either way I think there will be lots to be pissed about.

    I’m liking Rep. Omar’s outspokenness. We are not eye to eye on content but she’s causing strife in DC among the status quo and I’m all for that. Same with AOC

    Gotta love how Donald is calling this a triumph. Why would he do that?

    I think there is a legitimate argument to be made regarding America’s relationship with Israel. It’s an humanitarian crisis over there and there are many sides contributing to it. It would be nice to re-examine our position there and best determine how to relieve the Palestinian suffering. But now is not the time or place nor do I think Omar’s eloquent or credible enough to further the discussion. All she is accomplishing is giving the nation a distraction from all of trump’s crimes.

    A human trafficker was selling her access to the President of the United States to wealthy Chinese executives. What in the everloving **** is going on? I know we've all kind of become numb to this sort of thing, but this is seriously insane.

    Criticizing Trump and calling out his stupid supporters is what got him elected. @Zombie you’re only helping Donald get re-elected by bringing up his many many MANY crimes...

    sarcasm off

    In all seriousness, this should be a knock out punch to his presidency. Any normal administration would see concerned patriots from both sides worried about the use of human traffickers corrupting our democracy in order to enrich corrupt foreign countries causing massive national security issues. I read today that one of the concerns from our allies (ie Steele Dossier) is that Russia and other countries are just flooding our system with dark money that would’ve normally been rejected but gladly accepted by Trump and the amoral GOP. The focus is primarily on Russia and its actions in 2016. However, China, SA, and others have quickly learned that Trump is open for sale.

    All Trump and the GOP care about is money and power. McConnell, Nunez, Gaetz, etc all need to go too.
