Kamala On Manafort’s Sentence: “Justice Is Broken”

Politico reports:

Sen. Kamala Harris on Friday held up Paul Manafort’s relatively lenient prison sentence as evidence that the criminal justice system is “broken in America.”

The California Democrat said during a presidential campaign stop in South Carolina that the former Trump campaign chairman’s four-year sentence for tax and bank fraud was emblematic of major discrepancies in the justice system between punishments for white-collar crimes versus other nonviolent crimes.

“People who commit white-collar crimes, they should be prepared to bring their toothbrush and spend as much time behind bars as anybody else,” she said to raucous applause.
