[Thread] Today's #ManafortSentencing is for white collar crimes, but people died because of Manafort's actions in Ukraine. We detailed his possible rap sheet in Sept 2017. No matter what, he is getting off lightly. @traciemac_Bmore @NarativLive narativ.org/2017/09/20/blo…
Why this apparent miscarriage of justice? Because it appears the Trump administration and @RudyGiuliani bribed Ukraine's government with weapons to stop co-operating with Mueller. nytimes.com/2018/05/02/wor…
Manafort is central to the main crime of #TrumpRussia: the hacking of the DNC servers by the GRU and the publication of emails by Wikileaks. S.C. Mueller is yet to release his findings on this. We wrote about it here: @NarativLive @traciemac_Bmore.

I am going to tweet just a little about #ManafortSentencing . Manafort received a sentence that is substantially lighter than the sentencing guidelines recommend. As you may know, I write about sentencing in the larger context of how we use time to transact over power.
For much of human history other forms of punishment were more common. Banishment, torture, & death are a few examples. I once read a florid description of the ancient practice of forcing a convict to swallow molten metal.
Incarceration was supposed to modernize & humanize punishment. If people can be sentenced to spend time in prison, we can at least make a show of fair, evenhanded, & humane treatment.

LMAOOOO...little do they know that Trump probably IS waiting for it.

They can't even figure out that he's being sentenced for things done, for example, during the Obama admin that went right into the Obama White House. Things related to #Ukraine, etc.

#ManafortSentencing
It was Trump that allegedly said:

"I've got a crook running my campaign."

Giuliani even said that clearing Trump first might be the only way they (special counsel) could prosecute Manafort.
