    Those cases aren't Paul Manafort's fault. What does his case have to do with anyone else's? This kind of propaganda is designed for low IQ people. Maybe if some of those defendants had better lawyers, they could have gotten a lesser sentence?

    Now trump is spinning it at his white power rallies as “a lot of good people were framed”. Seriously. Listen to it. He said it.

    Every one million dollars stolen should count the same as a 1st degree murder. That would slow them down a bit.
