Well, it was another exciting week, but hey, at least Paul Manafort is in jail after having his bail revoked due to witness tampering. Man, the judges sure hate when you do that!
The judge seemed to be a little worried that Manafort had attempted to contact and influence witnesses during his contentious turn out on bail over the last seven months as he awaits trial in an enormous money laundering and federal conspiracy case.
I bet that presidential pardon is looking a little more important tonight.
There’s a good bit here on emptywheel.
