Harassment: Mueller Considering Retrying Paul Manafort on 10 Charges After Hung Jury

Published

on

“Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III is considering re-trying President Donald J. Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort on 10 charges that resulted in a hung jury in a trial in August,” according to a Washington Examiner report.

Federal prosecutors – at the behest of Mueller – are also considering levying additional charges against Manafort for an alleged breach of his plea deal with the Special Counsel.

“Mueller’s team on Friday did not reveal the details of what exactly Manafort did to breach the plea agreement, but they will in a court filing Dec. 7,” the report said. “Lawyers for Manafort — who did not appear in federal court Friday morning — will then have until Dec. 12 to respond to the details of the alleged plea agreement breach.”

This is the next chapter in the story of a Special Counsel who has targeted Trump associates and allies, not for alleged Russian “collusion,” the pretext for the whole investigations, but seemingly as a political stunt to send a message to the President.

“Just before a second Manafort trial in federal court in Washington, D.C., was set to begin in September, Manafort accepted a plea agreement with federal prosecutors and pleaded guilty to two federal crimes,” the report said. “As part of the deal, Manafort agreed to ‘fully, truthfully, completely, and forthrightly’ answer questions of interest to the special counsel.”

Mueller has now accused Manafort of lying to him on several occasions, though he did not specify exactly how.

Nine of the 2020 Forbes Ten Wealthiest Americans Are Democrat-Affiliated Liberal Megadonors

Pure oligarchy, greed and corruption.

Forbes Magazine released its annual list of the 400 wealthiest people in the world this week, and nine of the top ten wealthiest Americans featured on the list appear to be staunch Democrats and liberal donors.

Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, Larry Ellison, Steve Ballmer, Elon Musk, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Alice Walton were named as the wealthiest American citizens, all possessing a personal net worth of over 60 billion dollars. Nearly all of them are closely affiliated with Democrat politics in various capacities, most commonly as lavish donors to Democrat campaigns and liberal political causes.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is the only exception, being a figure who appears unaffiliated with the political left, having donated considerably more money to Republicans than Democrats in the 2018 election cycle, although he donated to Hillary Clinton in 2016. Musk has vaguely affiliated himself with some conservatives, and opposed some of California’s coronavirus lockdown policies.

Bezos himself reportedly personally encouraged Mike Bloomberg to run for President, having feuded with President Trump personally at length over Amazon’s utilization of the Postal Service. He hasn’t donated to Biden, but his general affiliation with Democratic politics is indicated through his tacit Bloomberg endorsement.

Alice Walton, a Walmart heiress, comes from a traditionally Republican family, but is a Biden donor with an extensive history of supporting Democrats. The rest of the top 10 are reliable Democrat donors, donating to Republicans rarely, if at all. Mark Zuckerberg occasionally depicts himself as a political centrist independent of Silicon Valley neoliberal politics, but the Facebook platform engages in prolific censorship of conservatives, without applying the same tactics to the political left.

The wealthiest billionaire oligarchs are determined to use their political power to crush the life prospects of the everyday American and the traditional middle-class American way of life. The political right and real conservatives should oppose them at every turn, reinstating an economic vision that upholds small businesses over multinational corporations and entrepreneurship at a local, community level as an alternative to the domination of monopoly billionaires.
