MANFORT MEETING PROSECUTORS WITHOUT LAWYERS!!!!
HE'S GOTTEN IMMUNITY!!!!
IT'S GOING DOWN!!!!!
@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.
@thegibson From your lips to... to...
Well, dang. Sometimes, being an agnostic really kind of sucks.
I'm just happy because these cards keep turning up just as predicted...

@thegibson lol the irony that two weeks ago trump was praising manafort for his loyalty...
life comes at you fast
@thegibson Yeah, but I don't think the whole collusion thing is going down, just regular D.C. corruption.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
