Is that really true about the state restriction on pardons?Yes, today he was sentenced to an additional 3.5 years, giving him a max of about 7 years in prison.
But his day is not over.
The Associated Press is reporting that prosecutors in New York City have indicted Paul Manafort for mortgage fraud, conspiracy, and other state charges.
The key here is STATE crimes. The president can't pardon someone for state crimes.
Once more not really a contribution to the conversation. Maybe he worked for Mother Teresa, so what?But the crimes you are talking about occurred when Manafort was working for the Podesta Brothers (contracted by the DNC Clinton 2008 campaign and the Clinton foundation) from 2006-2014.
There were no indictments for crimes while he was working for Trump.. maybe because there were no crimes committed during that period.
