@thegibson This is so clever:

1. Only pleading guilty to 2 federal charges. If Manafort backs out, he has admitted (though not actually plead guilty) to the other crimes, so would be an open and shut trial on a state level for those ones.

2. If he gets a presidential pardon, he has to admit to the crimes in order to receive said pardon. Since double jeopardy is a thing, he can be compelled to testify since he can't be convicted on said crimes.

Fucking beautiful strategy.
