He's rolling on Trump.  Will Manafort still get a pardon?  What do YOU think.

I have no idea.

It depends on how much info, if any, Manafort provides to the FBI to implicate Trump in felonious activities.

Once Manafort begins to talk, we'll know more about his chances of avoiding incarceration via pardon/clemency.

If Trump is still in office, yes he will.  Even if on his way out the door as Clinton did with Susan McDougal.  (Clinton's Manafort.)

Frankly I think it's pretty likely Manafort is doing this so the Republicans won't have to compete with Russia Russia Marsha! in the headlines for the months leading up to the election.

Let's not forget .... Manafort isn't a Trumplican.  He's an establishment Republican with deep roots and a long history with the Republican establishment.

He's also a convicted felon that happened to be in the Trump Tower meeting.  He may be able to pull down Don Jr and Kushner.

Okay.

Maybe. 

"Wishin, and hopin, and thinkin, and prayin."

But what would have been far more useful to the Democrats is if Manafort had been dragged through a lengthy and public trial revolving around constant daily reminders in the news of Russian ties and influence.

And I'm inclined to think that's part of the calculation.  There's a very good chance Trump won't be around to pardon Manafort if the Democrats take the House AND the Senate.  Sure they need 2/3rds of the Senate to convict.  But 2/3rds is easier to hit if the Dems control the Senate.

Personally I hope not unlike some of the Democrat party hacks here I don't care which party you represent if you do the crime you do the time.

It may also depend on whether the Trump-Manafort joint defense agreement still stands...


How Trump and Manafort Are Helping Each Other in the Russia Investigation

Quote:
The two have a joint-defense agreement, which allows their legal teams to share information—and could help the president’s former campaign chairman angle for a pardon.

That was weird.  I was interrupted and walked away, came back and I thought I hadn't posted that yet.  I hit post ... and see you responded to the post I was making. 

Weird!

Whoops.
