Paul Manafort New York

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.

FBI Director Christopher Wray Blames Sovereign Citizens, Militias for Summer’s BLM/ANTIFA Riots

The FBI has become a joke.

Published

FBI Director Christopher Wray blamed sovereign citizen movements and militias for the summer’s unprecedented and historical riots, in which almost 30 Americans were killed, 700 law enforcement officers were injured, and 14,000 people were arrested.

Wray was responding to a question in a Tuesday hearing posed by Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz was inquiring as to the FBI’s plan to deter and prevent mob-style riot crime in American cities, with Wray’s answers seeming to suggest the agency has no real plan to avoid a repeat of the experiences of summer 2020 later this year.

In reality, the summer’s riots are almost entirely the fault of Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA. BLM engaged in an onslaught of destruction targeting small businesses and powerless members of American communities, after the controversial death of George Floyd.

Wray made a token allusion to “anarchist” extremism, before citing sovereign citizens and militias for BLM/ANTIFA’s violence.

A lot of that activity fell in what we would categorize as anti-government, anti-authority violent extremism. Some of it is anarchist, violent extremism; some of it is militia violent extremism. Some of it might even be sovereign citizen violent extremism.

Wray made no reference to the criminal Black Lives Matter riot movement, or the street terror cult known as ANTIFA. He did reference a Patriot Prayer demonstrator who was shot and killed by an ANTIFA militant in Portland.

With Biden’s ascension to the Presidential Throne, Democrats are chomping at the bit at the prospect of using powerful and unaccountable federal law enforcement agencies to gin up bogus accusations and surveillance of patriotic Donald Trump supporters and America First advocates. Don’t expect the FBI to arrive on the scene if ANTIFA/BLM crime explodes in the summer- unless, of course, a so-called “extremist” can be found on the scene waiving an American flag.
