Trump is apparently using Covid-19 as an excuse to take care of his henchmen. Not only did Trump AG Barr call for charges to be dropped against Flynn, Manafort’s been let out for the rest of his 7 1/2 year sentence and not just until (and if) Covid-19 has a vaccine or cure. Meanwhile, Trump’s failures mean we can all be in home confinement or risk illness and death. So, where’s the punishment for Manafort now? He’s in home confinement. And, isn’t he considered a flight risk, too? He may have access to a Covid free island. Does he have a home in New Zealand like Trumpster Peter Thiel does?

Why’s Trump suddenly letting the boys out? Does he think he is going to lose in November or die?

One of several former Trump aides charged in Mueller’s investigation, Manafort was convicted in a jury trial in Virginia in August 2018 on charges including tax fraud and bank fraud, and then pleaded guilty in a separate case the following month in Washington to conspiracy charges.” (Reuters, 13 May 2020)
