After the former chairman to President Donald J. Trump’s 2016 campaign was sentenced to 7 years in prison, the state of New York charged Paul Manafort with 16 more crimes this afternoon.
Manafort was found guilty and sentenced to over 7 years in prison after he was charged with crimes relating to tax and bank fraud by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and now, fearing that President Trump may pardon Manafort of the federal crimes, the state of New York is attempting to convict him of 16 more crimes.
The Manhattan district attorney’s press release reveals that the 16 charges Manafort faces in New York relate to fraudulently obtaining bank loans. The “16-count indictment that alleges a yearlong scheme in which he falsified business records to obtain millions of dollars in loans,” according to Manhattan district attorney Cyrus R. Vance.
According to The New York Times, because these charges were already brought up during Mueller’s investigation, it is believed Manafort’s lawyers will attempt to get the case dismissed due to double jeopardy laws, which prevent citizens from being charged with the same crime twice. This is designed to prevent legal warfare against private citizens, wherein the government can retry a case repeatedly until they get the desired outcome, which some agree is what the state of New York is doing with Manafort.
New York prosecutors had previously threatened indictments against Manafort only if President Trump were to pardon him, and later determined to charge him regardless of a presidential pardon.
Manafort could face an additional 25 years in prison, essentially a life sentence to the 69-year-old who has appeared at recent sentencing hearings confined to a wheelchair. If convicted, Manafort would not be eligible for a presidential pardon because these alleged crimes were committed at the state level.
This action comes roughly 18 hours after the GOP’s Twitter account posted an article revealing the clear anti-Trump bias of New York attorney general Lelita James, writing that she “is using her position of power to baselessly smear the President.”
President Trump retweeted the post yesterday evening.
The NY Attorney General called President Trump an “illegitimate president.” She has proven to have a vendetta against @realDonaldTrump & is using her position of power to baselessly smear the President & the work he’s done for the American people.https://t.co/PaVuvlC344

WOW: John Durham is Reportedly Dropping Russia-Gate Investigation to Appease Biden ‘Administration’
Durham’s probe ends as an empty flop.
U.S. Attorney John Durham is reportedly giving up on the Russia-gate investigation, as he is too scared to delve into the truth now that Biden has been announced as president-elect by the globalists.
Thus far, Durham’s investigation has been a huge bust. His work has only resulted in the prosecution of one individual – former FBI Attorney Kevin Clinesmith – for making or using “any false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry.”
Outside of this nobody, there have been no prosecutions that have resulted from Durham’s Russia-gate investigation despite the laundry list of evidence showing wrongdoing.
Sean Davis of The Federalist has reported that the investigation is over. Durham is apparently quitting because of cowardice.

Big League Politics has reported on Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch blowing the whistle on Durham’s failure to do his job and investigate what was arguably the biggest crime in U.S. history prior to the vote steal:
Trump supporters are waiting with baited breath for U.S. Attorney John Durham to come out with his explosive findings in regards to his investigation into the origins of the Russian collusion probe against President Trump.
According to Judicial Watch founder Tom Fitton, Trump supporters are getting taken for a ride. Fitton said during a recent appearance on Fox Business’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight” that Barr and Durham are making no progress on investigating what very well may be the worst criminal conspiracy in U.S. history.
“You know, my concern is it’s been, what, sixteen-plus months since Durham was appointed and only now is he questioning Mr. Brennan,” Fitton said.
Fitton said that he is inclined to believe disgraced former CIA Director John Brennan when he says that he is not a person of interest in Durham’s investigation.
“I don’t see grand juries operating. I don’t see a bunch of witnesses coming in. I don’t see lawyers complaining about their clients being brought in before Durham,” Fitton said.
He said that the Mueller investigation was run much more thoroughly than Durham’s so-called investigation, the goal of which appears to be protecting the deep state.
“You know when the government is being pressure on witnesses and subjects and that is not evident here,” Fitton said, adding that it is his opinion that Durham is “not doing the work” needed to bring deep state criminals to justice.
Fitton did not object to Dobbs’ characterization that he is calling the Durham a “sham.”
“I’ll have to tell you. I’m a little concerned that the FBI is no longer an investigative agency because if this is the way they operate, it’s going to take them decades to deal with anything of real complexity,” Dobbs said.
It seems that Durham, and his boss Attorney General Bill Barr, were just deep state hacks all along. So much for “Trust the Plan,” huh?
