Please, every person has his or her breaking point. They were going to throw this guy in jail forever. He has a family.

As for “cooperation” it consists of telling Mueller whatever he composes for Manafort to tell him.

Our justice system is being used to effectuate a coup d’etat. What are we going to do about it?

So he’s already been convicted and the only way to get off easier is to tell Mueller and team what they want to hear?

What a screwed up “justice system.” Nothing Manafort can do will change the crimes he’s convicted of. Our system is BROKEN.

“What are we going to do about it?”

Whine, complain, gnash our teeth. That’s it.
The socialist future of this country is coming.

This was a no-brainer on both sides.

The guy is 70 years old and he was already convicted on a bunch of counts in the separate case in Virginia. His "cooperation" will be: "Yes, I did it."

President Trump’s status as an “un-indicted co-conspirator” will be broadcast just before the elections.

And we must remember that as Herr Mueller and the Deep Reich have millions of dollars to fund this witch hunt, Manafort does not.

I’m reminded of what the Democrats did personally to Governor Palin. She either had to spend her own money defending against those bogus lawsuits. Or resign.

Nothing. The communists Democrats and the MSM are running this Country and we have no way to stop it. Trump is asleep when it comes to Sessions, Rosenstein and Mueller.

The NYT has no F***** idea what the ‘Plea ‘ deal entails. Last week Manaforts lawyer said the ‘Plea Deal’ was a straight up, plead guilty for less time.

Prosecutor: Manafort personally met with a member of Congress who had oversight of Ukraine relationship. Then prepared a report on meeting that was sent to Yanukovych.

Nice modification you've got there. Can only be added by someone with no skin in the game.

Andrew Weismann, Rod Rosenstein, Pete Strzok, Liz Page, James Comey, Hillary Clinton, and a few more should ALL be in PRISON!!! Oh, Did I forget Jeff Sessions, Yes, Jeff Sessions.

.. and Mueller should be theie prison guard and cook. He sure is cooking up a batch of BS here.

Add sarcasm tags as you wish.. We are facing deep kakkaa ahead. Some folks will do anything to get the rats off the ship. including sink it. Sadly, rats can swim.. and the DC tidal basin current is flowing as strong as ever. Time to take the gloves off? or let this Kabuki theater of a CONgre$$ pass after choking on its own duty.

“Torture doesn’t work.” unless its psychological torture and the torturer is a prosecutor with the power to destryo your life utterly or to let you off with a slap on the wrist.
