Is Manafort About To Flip?

[ Posted Tuesday, August 28th, 2018 – 16:48 PDT ]

Paul Manafort, now an eight-time convicted felon, could be considering cutting a deal with Bob Mueller to avoid his second (and more serious) federal trial. The Wall Street Journal (not exactly a left-wing news source) is reporting that Manafort's team already explored the possibility of such a plea deal during the four-day period when the jury in his first trial was still deliberating. The plea talks broke down and no deal emerged, but the fact that such a discussion took place at all shows that Manafort's legal team knows full well the serious jeopardy their client is in. Today it was also reported that Manafort's second trial will be delayed for one week, at the request of the defense. Could the extra week be to work out a plea deal before the second trial even begins? Speculation is running rampant on that very question.

It's a little-known fact among the general public, but almost all felony criminal cases never actually go to trial. On the state level, defendants in 94 percent of such cases reach a plea bargain rather than risking a trial. In federal felony cases, that statistic rises to a whopping 97 percent. Not exactly the stuff of television courtroom drama, but the fact is that actual trials for felonies are relatively rare. Most people, when faced with overwhelming evidence of their guilt of a serious crime, decide to go for the plea bargain rather than rolling the dice in court.

Paul Manafort's cases are not normal ones, though. They're about as high-profile as you can get. However, even Bob Mueller's team has already chalked up a track record of reaching plea bargains rather than going to trial. Manafort, in fact, is really the only person targeted so far who has insisted on his day in court. Everyone else has accepted a plea bargain for lesser crimes, in order to tell Mueller what they know about more serious crimes. That's a big part of all of these bargains -- you have to tell everything you know, and whatever you have to say has to be an important link in the other cases Mueller is building. That's the quid pro quo of being allowed to plead guilty to a lesser charge and work out a reduced sentence.

Manafort's hand got a whole lot weaker when the jury brought back the eight "guilty" verdicts against him, of course. His legal team will now be arguing from a much weaker position than they were in before the jury reached its decisions. In any plea deal discussions held while the jury was still out, Manafort's lawyers could argue that since the jury was taking so long, it was probably bad news for the prosecution. That argument is now null and void. Manafort is facing a whopping 80 years of confinement for the crimes he's been found guilty of, although most legal experts estimate that the actual sentence may be on the order of 7-to-10 years in the pokey. That's the bargaining position Manafort now finds himself in. At best, he might obtain a plea deal that would reduce that down to somewhat less than five years in prison, since he's already been convicted. That's now his best-case scenario in any plea bargain attempt his lawyer's might make.

But, of course, the bigger trial is looming. So Manafort's team now has to bargain not just for the eight convictions, but also against the possibility of more felony convictions (if the second trial goes as badly for them as the first did). This puts Mueller in the catbird seat in these negotiations, quite obviously.

The plea deal talks while the jury was out fell apart, and no deal was reached. The Wall Street Journal, however, did not manage to obtain a copy of any plea deal offered by either side. So we have no idea how these talks actually went. Did the defense offer up a deal that was laughably lenient (something like: no jail time, Manafort only answers certain questions from Mueller's team) and Mueller rejected it? Did the prosecution offer up a deal that was incredibly harsh, since the defense had waited so long to enter into plea negotiations? Anyone who has seen any episode of Law And Order knows that the power center in such negotiations shifts back and forth, depending on which side feels it has the stronger legal hand at the moment. What might have been acceptable pre-trial will not be agreed to after the case has been presented, in other words. The goalposts will have moved, in one direction or the other. Without knowing the details of what was offered and which side turned it down, it's impossible to know exactly who was overestimating their legal position. Given the eight convictions, however, it's probably not a stretch to assume it was the defense lawyers who were a wee bit overconfident.

But now Manafort's defense team has successfully pushed the second trial back a week. The stated reason for doing so was that they were still regrouping after the first trial, and needed more time to prepare their case for the second trial. This, incidentally, is going to push the case one more week closer to the midterm elections. The case will likely take at least two or three weeks, meaning the verdicts could come in just a few weeks (or even a few days, depending on how long the trial lasts) before America votes.

The political calendar aside, however, if the extra week is intended to hammer out a new plea deal, it means that Manafort's lawyers know that this is their last chance to strike any sort of advantageous deal with Mueller. If Manafort is convicted on further (and more serious) felonies, he'll be left without many cards to play. Mueller will (no doubt) demand to know what Manafort has to offer in the way of incriminating testimony against others, and he'll weigh the value of such testimony against the charges and convictions already looming over Manafort. Any deal he strikes will reflect the strength of his bargaining position, and may well also reflect on the seriousness of the testimony Manafort is offering in return.

If Manafort flips, it may be the final domino for Donald Trump's legal woes. Manafort telling what he knows, taken together with all the other plea bargains Mueller has already obtained, may give Mueller a crystal-clear picture of what went on in the Trump campaign. And if Manafort flips, a presidential pardon might not even help Donald Trump's legal position at all. If Trump were to issue a blanket pardon to Manafort for all crimes which he may have committed during the Trump campaign, it would have no practical effect at all after such a deal has been struck (other than to keep Manafort out of prison, that is). The Fifth Amendment only works if the person claiming it is still in legal jeopardy. The technical language used to "take the Fifth" explains this: "I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that it may tend to incriminate me." If you have already obtained a pardon for such crimes, then you have are left with no constitutional right to stand on. If you are not in legal jeopardy, then there is no valid constitutional reason not to testify what you know. This would be exactly the same as someone who had cut a plea deal which required such testimony -- either way, the jury will still get to hear what the guy has to say.

Donald Trump has had a particularly bad August, this year. He's seen former allies, former top aides, former campaign managers, former employees, and former (one assumes, now) friends all flip on him and tell federal prosecutors exactly what they know about Trump, Trump's campaign, Trump's finances, and Trump's businesses. Throughout it all, there has been only one person who has refuse to flip. Trump has lauded Manafort for standing strong against the urge to cut a deal, in fact. What will he do if Manafort cracks? If such a plea deal is reached, the public will find out about it in the next three weeks. August was indeed bad for Trump, but September may be even worse.

    If Manafort does accept a plea deal and pleads guilty, that would only make it that much more harder for Trump to actually pardon him politically, than it already is. It is much easier to pardon someone when you can claim they did not get a fair trial, than it is to pardon someone who admitted their own guilt and didn't go to trial at all.

    Two more potential potholes:

    1. You didn't mention it, CW, but you know that Mueller's team could opt for another bite at the apple on the charges that the jury hung on in the first trial, and haul that banker from Chicago back into court to testify again. What're the odds that two juries won't find anything wrong with offering a top job at the Pentagon in return for a loan?

    2. Part of a pardon is that the offender has to admit guilt to get one, so he can be compelled to testify if he's pardoned. I think that that's why Bush commuted Libby's sentence, rather than pardoning him outright - to keep Libby from being deposed again, this time without 5th amendment protection, and (by extension) to protect Cheney from a charge of treason, which has no statute of limitation on it. Must be prudent, as Bush Sr. used to like to say.

    The upshot is that whether Manafort gets his pardon or not, he'll sit in jail for a long time, at least until Trump's on his way out the door. The Russians won't be happy if Manafort is later compelled to rat on them, whether that comes sooner or later, and that's probably no small deal for him either.

    That's JUST the same as your law except no registry is needed. A gun registry is a prelude to gun confiscation and as such, is unconstitutional..

    US consumer confidence rises to 18-year high

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans’ consumer confidence rose in August to the highest level in nearly 18 years as their assessment of current conditions improved further and their expectations about the future rebounded.

    The Conference Board reported Tuesday that its consumer confidence index rose to 133.4 in August, up from a reading 127.9 in July. It was the highest reading since confidence stood at 135.8 in October 2000.

    Not really accurate. He has not been acquitted of any charges, so he still stands "accused" of them. Per our criminal process, he is PRESUMED innocent, but that is different from ACTUAL innocence. That presumption of innocence is subject to change in any future trial of the charges for which he is still accused (as we saw with the other 8 charges of which he was originally presumed innocent as well, but has been found to have been guilty). Until a trial occurs in which a conclusive verdict is reached, he remains accused of the crimes with uncertainty remaining as to his guilt or innocence.

    Consider this: if presumed innocence were the same as actual innocence, how could we hold the accused in jail pending their trial?

    Actually, an American is INNOCENT until proven guilty in a court of law...

    Manafort was not proven guilty in a court of law of those 10 charges....

    Ergo, he is INNOCENT of those 10 charges..

    If it appeases yer Party agenda to add the qualifier "presumed" by all means... SPIN AWAY...

    Doesn't change the fact that Manafort is INNOCENT of those 10 charges..

    Until a trial occurs in which a conclusive verdict is reached, he remains accused of the crimes with uncertainty remaining as to his guilt or innocence.

    OK.. So your saying that Hillary Clinton is ACCUSED of crimes so there is uncertainty remaining as to her guilt or innocence...

    Lemme help you out here..

    You can spin it all you like..

    Manafort is INNOCENT of those 10 charges he is accused of..

    No matter how or when the trial/plea deal works out, the party faithful on either side have already reached a verdict on how it will effect their vote.

    How it effects the votes of the few people whose votes would be effected by this will depend on who wins the election and which side is looking to pass the blame for losing on to someone else.

    It will not have any effect on the 125 million voters that will not vote in 2018 as they have already reached a verdict that neither of the current major parties are worth supporting (see Ralph Nader's recent article "Calling for Ten Million More Voters, a Few Billionaires, and a Just Congress.")

    When are you, CW, going to flip back from supporting the Big Money Democrats?

    If you can speculate aboot how the trial/plea deal will effect the small amount of citizens that it could effect then you could certainly speculate aboot Ralph's proposal to mobilize some of the 125 million 2018 non-voters (which in his article would seem to benefit Democrats) and my approach to mobilize some of those 125 million 2018 non-voters that would stay home rather than vote for either of the current major party Big Money candidates.

    Why is it that you will not address ideas that could inspire more citizens to participate? Are ideas that will inspire people to vote for the Big Money Democrats the only reality that you accept as reality and the only participation worth inspiring and informing citizens aboot?

    Trump weighed in on the D.C. case after Jackson on June 15 revoked Manafort's $10 million release bond and ordered him to be detained pending his trials. "Wow, what a tough sentence," Trump tweeted at the time.

    In their request on Wednesday, Manafort's lawyers noted that Trump's language wrongly suggested that Manafort had been sentenced for committing a crime during that hearing.

    "This Court revoked Mr. Manafort's release and remanded him into custody," Manafort's lawyers wrote in their motion.

    "This event unleashed a spate of intensely negative news coverage suggesting that Mr. Manafort violated the law. Indeed, even the President's response on Twitter; observed that Mr. Manafort received a 'tough sentence,' incorrectly suggesting that Mr. Manafort had been sentenced for committing a crime."

Also, he is going to die in jail unless he makes a deal with Mueller, and the poor guy claims Trump is hurting his case. Sounds like an easy solution to me. :)

    Why aren't our public defenders offices funded and staffed the same as prosecutors offices? Why is money still a ticket out of jail?

    C.R. and M will argue that the US can't afford any of those things (even as California enacts some of them without problem), but have nothing to complain about when the US drops a $16 billion dollar bomb on Afghanistan in an apparent demonstration project.

    Perhaps you ought to re-read my [62]. I did NOT say "I don't care about 'X' ('X' being somebody named 'Gillum'),, but here's the right way to think about 'Gillum'"

    On the contrary, I said "I dont care about 'Gillum', but here's the right way to think about FUNDING THE GOV'T BY MEANS OF CORP. TAXATION", (as opposed to conventional income taxation).

    That is not a "rhetorical trope" at all, nor do I "habitually use rhetorical tropes." What it actually is, is lack of reading comprehension on your part.

    Russ,

    I seem to be losing a lot of bets with myself lately.. :(

    I had bet myself that you being indignant about the gay slur would override your Party slavery...

    Lost another one. :(

    You belittle and insult people at every turn, then gasp and clutch at your pearls in horror when you anger someone to the point that they lash back at you.

    So, that justifies attacks on my family??

    So, lemme ask you..

    What would you say if, because James T Canuck was "belittling" me and "insulting" me, I lashed out and attacked his mother??

    And THEN I use the most lamest and pathetic excuse, "Well, HE brought her up!!!"

    What would you say to that??

    You would condemn me to the high heavens and you would be COMPLETELY right to do so.. That is nothing short of blog-terrorism..

    Yet, when the crack whore does it, *I* am the bad guy???

    How exactly does that work??

    Once again, it's really simple..

    If ya'all stop the shit, then the shit will stop...

    If ya'all continue with the shit, then I will respond as well..

    But unlike you, I won't cross the line into blog-terrorism or even ACCEPTING blog-terrorism..

    So take your comment and shove it up your ass... If you accept Victoria's attacks on a person's family, even if it's MY family, than you are no better than her.

    No better than a blog-terrorist...

    Crack Whore

    Who knew the troll's wife read the blog? You should speak with her directly and leave the readers of the blog out of your family issues. TMI

    I have never made a gay slur here.
    YOU have..

    Wrong.

    Not even a good try, but you're a known liar and whiny snowflake around here... so there's that.

    I have never attack any commenters family in the most vile and disgusting ways..

    Like I already said: I can't help it if the terms you hurl at other people remind me of your family; that is all your handiwork, though. Additionally, if you think the term is "vile and disgusting," then you should probably stop using it towards others and therefore stop reminding others of the many and multiple stories you posted on this blog about you and your wife's lives as whores. If you're going to brag about being a whore and then keep regularly tossing that term out at other posters, then you shouldn't be the least bit surprised when those other posters are reminded about your lives as whores. You posted it, and everyone remembers it.

    Check your mirror. You are the one using the "vile and disgusting" term you are objecting to that reminds other people of your multiple whoring family stories. You've bragged so many times on this blog about you and your wife's life as whores that you only have yourself to thank for it. You are kind of like a roadmap in that all of your chosen and hurled insults fit yourself and your family situation like a glove, and you have yourself to thank for letting the entire board know all about it.

    Keep hurling the insults that fit you and yours, and I'll keep remarking how great they fit. It's not really all that complicated. :D

    YOU are scum of the earth and YOUR kind is not wanted around here..

    Yes, this also is not a remotely new statement for you either. Everyone here also knows how you've bragged about running people off the blog. You posted a nice list of all those you had already run off and bragged about how I'd be next. It's an old story, and I suspect the others are tired of hearing you whine about that also. It's glaringly obvious to others that you genuinely believe you control the board and everyone on it. You wish to be free to hurl insults and make up fake quotes and put words in people's mouths for the entire board while censoring everyone else and whining like a little bitch if anyone does it back in your general direction. It's obvious to everyone except yourself. Clue in already.

    You are not fit to live..

    I have that in common with John Brennan and all the others you've passed judgment on lately because they dared to have a different opinion than you and Benedict Donald, Treasonous Trump, Comrade Trump! I will wear that as a badge of honor, thank you. :)

    That simply illustrates what a pathetic low life you really are..

    You hurl gay slurs and attack a commenters' family and you think it's honorable...

    Being such a fat slob....

    Cats! *laughs* Why are you picking on cats? What did cats ever do to you? :)

    You might want to stop talking about killing on the blog, m'kay? My life is great, though! Thanks for your concern. :)

    Said nothing about killing...

    You think it's perfectly acceptable to hurl gay slurs and attack a commenter's family...

    You are the LAST person to be giving advice on what is and is not appropriate in a blog..

    You don't know what I think; you don't know what anyone thinks for that matter, but it is always you putting words in people's mouths and making up fake quotes and claiming to know what everyone thinks. You have no idea what people think. You spam the board, and you're always around telling everyone what they can and cannot post and what is and is not acceptable. The only problem arises when you get it back, you become quite the whiny little bitchy snowflake. It would be comical if it wasn't so pathetic.

    If you're going to dish it out, you're going to get it right back. If you hurl insults that remind me of the stories you've told about you and wife being whores, I'm going to comment about you projecting your family situation onto me. It ain't complicated. :)

    Additionally, continue to post away and pretend like you didn't just tell another poster to kill themselves. You're fooling no one else on the blog except yourself.

    Have a nice day, snowflake! I always do!

    Done here. :)

    You said "Cock Holster".. I did not put those words in your mouth.. You typed them out all on your own..

    I have also provided FACTS that prove said phrase is a gay slur...

    So in addition to being terroristic, you are also a homophobe....

    You did that all on your own, crack whore...

    Now look who is putting words in other people's mouth..

    Yes, you are.. You just don't know it yet. :D
