two counts of bank fraud

Looking into this.

Do you have a good link?

The articles I saw showed that he lied to get loans? I don't know what happened after that. Was money lost?

I don't know if this rises to the level of "let's put him in jail!" on its own. And rather then letting the man work and pay back those he defrauded, I don't see how putting him in a cage benefits anybody.
  

If FaceBook memes and twitter accounts can sway elections, then either accept it as the new reality or let's figure out a new form of government. Because democracy is therefore unfit in the modern age.

1.  I wonder if the sentences will be turned over on appeal based on the investigation was created and prosecuted based on a lie.  A stretch, but I can see the mental leap.
2.  Where are the cries by the leftists about excessive sentences for non-violent crimes?
3.  Had it not been for Manny's association with the President, this would have never seen the inside of a court room.
4.  NY State shows it's slip by stacking on charges for the same crimes.  Some could say it is double jeopardy. 

HOWEVER...

5.  He was found guilty of a crime and so he should do the time.  I'm looking forward to Bernie's wife landing behind bars for the same thing.
  

Because it's just a clever, pithy saying based on comedy show talking points shortcutting logic and reason and making the issue worse. ~ Queshank

I kinda do if I'm being honest.  The guy was crucified for supposed crimes other people supposedly committed in the midst of a national hysteria.

He didn't even do anything that bad or that uncommon.  He just did it on a pretty big scale.  And he was just as good as the rest of the lobbyist class at hiding it.  The only reason anyone went after him is because Donald Trump won the presidency.  That's a kick in the balls.

But hey.  When the peanut butter hating mob shows up at your door ... choose your next move carefully.

President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych ratted out Manafort in 2013.  The FBI opened an investigation into Manafort soon after.

Why did they have to wait for Mueller then?  It was Mueller that brought charges after all.

Like I said ... he was just as good at hiding it as the rest of the lobbyist class.

The charges brought against Manafort were old, nothing that wasn't already known. I find it quite surprising (not really I guess) that the left see's Manafort as this much hated criminal that should be shackled and jailed yet Podesta who did the same thing and was in lock step is free as a bird..
  Destroying someone because they hold a different political view should never be championed yet it happens again and again.

  I wonder if the left will be as hard on the "criminal" when the ball drops on Comey, Brennon etc..

I do. Until Trump is in there with him, he's going to be so lonely.

So what is your alternative?  Be a reloader?

So even though he was convicted, to you they are still "supposed crimes"  I see Roll Eyes
