State charges against Manafort have nothing to do with justice. They are based on hate for the President and anyone who supported him
This is a case of piling on a guy who was a victim of the Democrat vendetta against people associated with Trump's election. First, they tried pushing the Russian collusion hoax for which there was no evidence so they fell back on charges that had nothing to do with it and which were not brought against any Democrat who did the same thing Manafort did. If these charges are for the same offense they could be considered double jeopardy under recent court rulings. The charges were announced just minutes after Manafort received his second federal sentence.
