Manafort's Response to Special Counsel's allegations of breach of the plea deal.

Shows us exactly how the Special Counsel games witnesses and punishes those who don't fully "cooperate"

Manafort has been in solitary confinement for months.

Health problems putting him in a wheelchair on occasion. Very little contact with his family.

Make the witness's confinement so unbearable that he sings your tune.
Don't give the witness the chance to refresh his memory - to review documents or communications - on events that happened years ago.
Assert that the failure to properly recall events/communications from over 2 years are lies, and not gaps in memory.
Ask the witness to agree that a witness "possessed the requisite state of mind to legally establish his guilt."

Punish the witness's honesty when they can't determine another person's state of mind.
Special Counsel got the facts of a $125K payment wrong... and then punished Manafort for being confused.
The intentional failure to refresh the witness's memory of a prior proffer session.

Accuse the witness of lying when he gives an inconsistent statement.
