Preet Bharara: Paul Manafort Will Likely Flip On Trump

Raw Story reports:

Appearing on CNN, former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara claimed that special counsel Robert Mueller hit former Trump campaign chair Paul Manfort with so many charges, that he is likely talking with his lawyers about flipping on President Donald Trump to get a favorable plea deal.

“Investigators will make an approach, say ‘we have good evidence against you,’ and they probably did that with Papadopoulos and he said okay and cooperated. With Paul Manafort, he did not. Sometimes though, after people’s minds get focused because a criminal charge is brought to bear on them, they have to retain counsel, they go to court and they’re confronted with the enormity of what is facing them, meaning the loss of their liberty. They sometimes flip then.”

  • This administration is everything white Amerikkka accused the black president of being.

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      But White Jesus!!

    • Dave B

      Falsely accused.

      • JerryRich

        That goes without saying.

        • David Walker

          Not only said, but shouted. If nothing else, it pisses off the nazi-racist-bigots, and it’s fun to see their faces get as red as their flags.

    • DaddyRay

      It is called projection

      • Gustav2

        And the media will bring up, “but…but…but the Clintons…”

        • I hate this tactic. She’s not the president and won’t ever be any more but the media treating this administration like it’s her doing.

    To whom do I need to pray to insure that this happens?

    • Treant

      OMG, that looks like me in church every Christmas. I also have an internal commentary of, “That’s inconsistent. A bit hypocritical, don’t you think? That seems scientifically implausible. Citation required…”

      • DaddyRay

        I can’t go any more. The last time I went for a funeral because of family pressure to be there, I found it very disturbing to hear the mindless chanting of responses. It felt very cult like

        • Treant

          “And also with you.”

          • DaddyRay


        • Jay George

          If plain old chanting bothers you, don’t attend the funeral of an active freemason. That is some hand waving, ooga booga scary shit right there.

        • Tor

          My mother is 98 years old, and her funeral will be the last time I step foot into a church.
          That reminds me, I should probably give her a call.

          • Statistics Palin

            Tell her that Jesus loves her and all twelve of his boyfriends adore her.

          • DonnaLee

            Lucky you, mine died at 68. Miss her every day.

        • Tom Furgas

          At the funeral of one of my crackhead brothers after all the sermonizing and what-not they trundled his casket out to the hallway. There, suddenly, the priest had us stop, and he whipped out a vial of sand and intoned something while pouring it onto the coffin. Now, my brother is a very devout Catholic and cantor, so he was very offended when I asked later “What was all that hocus-pocus in the hallway…?”

        My grandmother is 86 and has gone to church her entire life. One Easter I asked her what happened to Jesus *after* the tomb was empty.

        She had just gotten back from Easter service. I hear her loudly shout, “Dick [my grandpa], what happened to Jesus?” I hear softly a reply, “Weren’t you paying attention earlier?”

        • Treant

          I know, right? Now there was one ceremony where I was fondling my then-boyfriend in the back pew….

          • Robincho

            Fondling in back pew = anal digitizing…

          • Treant

            I wasn’t quite that crass. Quite.

          • Robincho

            Sure you weren’t groping him in the apse?…

          • Treant

            I did have a hand on the font.

          • Robincho

            You have a real surplice of these stories…

        • ClevelandJim

          and where the HELL was your camera??

    • WhitewaterDave

      I just got back from the PS Pride parade/celebration. It was only 74 degrees, so most guys had their shirts on…

  • Treant

    Prolly. There’s no honor amongst thieves, but when you sit them down and make them watch Oz for ten hours, they tend to give up everything they’ve got just to save their own skin.

  • safari

    Manafort is a person without morals or ethics.

    He’ll spill everything he can.

    • Photo memes are more impactful when not misspelled. ..just saying!

      • ClevelandJim

        Annnd, looks like “someone” forgot the plural “s” on “meme”

      • Adam King

        Unless they’re cat memes.

        • Everybody knows cats love typos!

          • Beagle

            Cats just hate following rules. That includes spelling, punctuation, and grammar rules.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    Translation – He already has and Trump is fucked.

    Now I’m even happier as I head out to our annual UMCOAC toy run!

  • The only person that Trump seems loyal to (besides himself) is Ivanka. Everyone else will eventually be thrown under the bus. So if anyone is thinking that he will pardon them or help them in some way at his own expense, they are idiots. Of course anyone who associates with Trump knowing his history is an idiot anyway.

    • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

      He’s not loyal to Ivanka either. Donald puts Donald first.

      • Reality.Bites

        Besides, he’s seen Orange is the New Black and wants to see her in one of those cute jumpsuits.

        Also, he wants to see her make out with Laura Prepon.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      Pardons don’t cost a cent, and he might be stupid enough not to realize that doling them out willy-nilly could be at his own peril.

  • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

    they say there’s enough evidence to make arrests in the Flynn probe too.

  • Professor Barnhardt

    Finally, someone used the word “enormity” correctly. It is possible he did so unintentionally, but I am giving him the benefit of the doubt.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      Bharara’s command of the language is second to very, very few.

  • Dan Ryan

    Trump will pardon every scum POS that has been compromised by Putin or their own greed and stupidity. I hope they all die in a fire.

    • boatboy_srq

      Trouble with that approach is that, pardons fresh in their hands, they will all be free to snitch on Lord Dampnut himself.

    • robindaybird

      1: He can’t pardon state-level crimes
      2: Taking a pardon is an admission of guilt
      3: Pardon too many people in his inner circle is gonna be screaming “I’m covering up”

      • Pete Wascher

        but trump is interviewing candidates for ag for ny. you can bet he wants ones who won’t press charges against him or his team. 🙁

        • McSwagg

          Correction: dRumpf is interviewing candidates for Federal Prosecutor for several key jurisdictions including Manhattan, Bronx, and Florida. The AG of NY is a state official who prosecutes state crimes over which dRumpf has no control or pardon power.

  • Galvestonian

    I’ll believe it when I hear about it. I don’t believe half of the rumors or hearsay that foams/froths/bubbles out of D.C.

  • R W C

    How Versatile of them! Trump screwed up with Manafort and Manafort screws Trump.

  • Grumpys cats Best Friend

    I never wanted to fart in church because you had to sit in your on pew.

  • Kevin Andrews

    The illegitimacy of this current Shitgibbon’s “Administration” (selected to destroy their assigned departments) speaks eloquently of the Auction of AmeriKKKa Inc by the treasonous Roberts SCOTUS.
    The current “bread, mead & circus” is only a distraction from the real rape of America’s prosperity by the Rothschild’s Khazar mafia.
    The Fascist States of AmeriKKKa is here now.
    We are all Palestinians.
