    Making the mistake of witness tampering is going to bite him in the ass come time for his trial. He's been given a bit of leniency and he utilized his house arrest to violate the law. In a way that shows consciousness of guilt, no less.

      Well, it could just mean he is scared. I'd be terrified of going in front of a jury and letting them be the deciders of my fate. Juries are and picked based on, can this person be manipulated. Not saying what he did was right.

    Just a small note on your tags here: you need to separate them with a comma for them to be different tags. Right now they are all one giant, five-word tag. That seems unintended.

    Trump's response: Lock him up...lock him up ;)

    Trump's response:

    Wow, what a tough sentence for Paul Manafort, who has represented Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole and many other top political people and campaigns. Didn’t know Manafort was the head of the Mob. What about Comey and Crooked Hillary and all of the others? Very unfair!

    Lock him up...lock him up ;)
