(Tea Party PAC) – Just moments after being sentenced by federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington DC Wednesday, former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was hit with new indictment from New York prosecutors.
Trump would not be able to pardon Manafort for state crimes so the deep state is clearly trying to ensure the Trump associate is punished even if he’s pardoned.
CNBC reported that the 16 charges raised by Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance relate to mortgage fraud, conspiracy, and falsifying business records.
From a press release from District Attorney Cy Vance:
Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr. today announced the indictment of PAUL MANAFORT, 69, for a yearlong residential mortgage fraud scheme through which MANAFORT and others falsified business records to illegally obtain millions of dollars. MANAFORT is charged in a New York State Supreme Court indictment filed on March 7, 2019, with Residential Mortgage Fraud in the First Degree, Attempted Residential Mortgage Fraud in the First Degree, Conspiracy in the Fourth Degree, Falsifying Business Records in the First Degree, and Scheme to Defraud in the First Degree.
“No one is beyond the law in New York,” said District Attorney Vance. “Following an investigation commenced by our Office in March 2017, a Manhattan grand jury has charged Mr. Manafort with state criminal violations which strike at the heart of New York’s sovereign interests, including the integrity of our residential mortgage market. I thank our prosecutors for their meticulous investigation, which has yielded serious criminal charges for which the defendant has not been held accountable.”
PAUL MANAFORT, D.O.B. 4/1/1949
Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

- Attempted Residential Mortgage Fraud in the First Degree, a class C felony, 1 count

- Scheme to Defraud in the First Degree, a class E felony, 1 count
Corrupt Obama-appointed Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced Paul Manafort to an additional 43 months prison time Wednesday in the Washington DC case for his Ukrainian lobbying efforts.
On Wednesday, Manafort was sentenced to 60 months in prison on one of the two counts, but will serve 30 of the months concurrently with his prior sentence.
He was sentenced to 13 months on his second criminal count.
Last month it became clear the prosecutors in New York were prepping charges to bring against Manafort in the event that Trump pardons him.
Never forget that everything Manfort did, Tony Podesta did too, yet Tony was given immunity.
Manafort is being punished to try to get to Trump and give the impression that the President is a criminal, when nothing Manafort did has anything to do with Trump. He’s a political prisoner.
“Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime.” This is what the corrupt Deep State is doing to Trump associates.
