Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, March 13, 2019

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr. today announced the indictment of PAUL MANAFORT, 69, for a yearlong residential mortgage fraud scheme through which MANAFORT and others falsified business records to illegally obtain millions of dollars. MANAFORT is charged in a New York State Supreme Court indictment filed on March 7, 2019, with Residential Mortgage Fraud in the First Degree, Attempted Residential Mortgage Fraud in the First Degree, Conspiracy in the Fourth Degree, Falsifying Business Records in the First Degree, and Scheme to Defraud in the First Degree. "No one is beyond the law in New York," said District Attorney Vance. "Following an investigation commenced by our Office in March 2017, a Manhattan grand jury has charged Mr. Manafort with state criminal violations which strike at the heart of New York's sovereign interests, including the integrity of our residential mortgage market. I thank our prosecutors for their meticulous investigation, which has yielded serious criminal charges for which the defendant has not been held accountable."

One question that's been popping around the back of my mind...

Who in the Trump circle, from the time of candidate Trump through and including Pres Trump, is better off after serving with him than they were before serving with him?

Fmr UN Amb Nikki Haley is the only one I can think of who detached from Trump with some manner of a good reputation intact.

Yep. Every former member of his team is worse off. I don't know how Nikki Haley pulled off the miracle of not only keeping her reputation intact but I think she actually emerged stronger. For her I think she got out at the right time.

A pardon might be a double edged sword for Mr Manafort anyway. If pardoned, he could lose his Fifth Amendment rights.

Manafort had best hope he doesn't get a pardon AND he can beat the New York charges.

It is possible that he'll simply exchange Club Fed with Sing Sing or Attica.

And between those two choices Club Fed would probably be the better "choice."

Manafort has another trial pending that will almost assuredly add to this prison sentence.

If he's convicted for crimes in 2 different states how is it determined which state he serves time in first?

Do they flip a coin?

He's 70 years old. If he dies in prison does his corpse have to remain there until his sentence has been served?

His apology is laughable.

"The last two years have been the most difficult years that my family and I have ever experienced." - Yeah, that's usually the case with white collar felons get busted. No tears for you, Paul.

"The person who I have been described as in public is not someone who I recognize. While I know that I am not that person" - You are that person. That's why you are going to prison.

"I accept responsibility for the acts that have caused me to be here today." Apparently you don't. See your previous statement.

"I can ensure that the future will be very different. I stand here today committing myself to this change." - That's true. You will be very different in the future. At your current age, it is already likely that you die in prison and that is before you get hit with whatever NY is throwing at you.

"My reflections have instilled in me the commitment to turn my notoriety into a positive and show the world who I really am." We've already seen who you truly are, and that person is a multiple time felon.

"With the power of prayer and God's guiding hand, I know that my family and I will emerge stronger from our suffering" - Unlikely. You've cost them pretty much everything they had. And if your behavior is indicative of that of the rest of your family then no chance.

Probably not much on the federal charges. None if Trump gives him a pardon. Sounds like the stage is already set for that.

AS for SDNY, it's hard to tell and I'm getting tired of being disappointed. Whatever it adds up to isn't near enough. If we're lucky he won't survive prison life.

Having looked at the indictment in the NY case it basically revolves around three mortgages that Manafort tried to get on the properties that he was previously accused of bank fraud in the Federal trial in VA.

Manafort's lawyers will move to dismiss under double jeopardy but Vance's office was crafty enough to draft the indictment in such a way as to focus not on the purchase of the properties with funds from offshore bank accounts but on the attempts to re-finance them, which are arguably separate acts.

I think that the mortgage fraud claims and the attendant conspiracy claims survive motion practice, but it seems to me that the false documents claims may be subject to a judicial estoppel defense and garden variety fraud goes out on double jeopardy.

so that double jeopardy would not apply

That was obviously the goal, but it doesn't always succeed since you have no control what evidence comes out in trial, which is why I said "Vance's office was crafty enough to draft the indictment in such a way as to focus not on the purchase of the properties with funds from offshore bank accounts but on the attempts to re-finance them, which are arguably separate acts."

Regardless of whether you are in State or Federal Court, you can't charge someone for crimes in two separate proceedings for the same set of actions, which is why they are going after the mortgages in NY. Manafort's lawyers are going to argue that since the properties are the same, then trying him again over transactions on those properties is tantamount to double jeopardy.

I think that is a losing argument for Manafort's defense as it relates to the Mortgage causes of action and the conspiracy counts attached to them.

I'm just sayen. Hitler would be proud.

I really don't care about this guy Manafort. He's a low life just like any of the other political consultants in Washington if they work for Democrats or Republicans. But, the fact that they are specifically going after him because the Democrats lost the election is absurd! How low can the Democrats and Bush/Obama Deep State go?
