Trump: Paul Manafort Is Treated Worse Than Al Capone When We Have The “Smocking Gun” On Hillary Clinton

The Hill reports:

President Trump suggested on Wednesday that his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been treated worse than notorious gangster Al Capone. Manafort, a longtime Republican operative, is currently on trial for charges of tax and bank fraud in Alexandria, Va.

Manafort’s lawyers have said that their client had been kept in solitary confinement in a Virginia jail as he awaited the start of his trial, because of concerns about his safety. Manafort was sent to jail in June after a judge revoked his house arrest amid allegations of witness tampering. He faces separate federal charges in Washington, D.C.

He just deleted the tweet seen above.
