|Judge T. S. Ellis, III|
Paul Manafort, the traitor to the United States of America, received a sweetheart sentence of forty-seven months for his lifetime of crimes including lying to the Special Prosecutor, thus proving again there are two systems of justice for citizens of the United States.
I try to avoid political blogs because I know they bore many of my readers but regular readers of my blog know that sometimes I just have to vent, political or otherwise.
Remember all the "Lock her up!" chants from the Deplorables at Trump's rallies because Hillary had a private e-mail server which supposedly was a dangerous security threat to the US? The Republicans and their Kool-Aid drinking followers all cheered. Yet here we have Paul Manafort, a proven liar, money launderer, bank fraud, and a lifetime of criminality gets a sweetheart sentence from Federal judge Ellis, who is known to give light sentences for white collar crimes.
Remember this, a black woman in Texas was sentenced to five years in jail for mistakenly voting without being registered. Click here. That folks says it all about how the justice systems sometimes (a lot actually) works in our country.
Shame on you Judge Ellis.
