Sad Face for Paul Manafort: Mueller Files Opposition to Release While Appeal is Pending


Sometimes you just can’t catch a break.  Or at least sometimes you can’t continue to catch breaks, sitting in your multi-million dollar home, drinking champagne and thinking you’re just too good to get caught.

Paul Manafort was sent directly to jail in June since probable cause was found that he would continue to commit crimes if left out on bail.  He faces charges of lying to investigators, acting as an unregistered foreign agent and money laundering.  His trial is scheduled to start July 25th.  At that time he was sent to jail, Manafort’s lawyers appealed U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s decision to revoke his bail, and today, Mueller’s team filed an opposition to Manafort’s release.

A link to the entire document can be found in the tweet below.

These were the first responses to Tillman’s tweet, and I think they’re both spot on.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m going to clear my schedule for July 25th!
