If last week saw Paul Manafort get off easy in a Virginia courtroom, this week saw the former Trump campaign chairman’s legal problems multiply.

This week New York affirmed what’s been speculation until now: Law enforcement in the state, where Trump has long based his business, is starting civil and criminal investigations that are beyond the president’s federal control.

Are the NY State Charges Shoddier Than They Look?

[Request for opinions and guidance from lawyers and especially ones working in New York State toward the bottom of this post.] Let me share a few thoughts and tips on the new Manafort charges from Manhattan, DA Cy Vance, Jr. They are twofold. Prosecutors I’ve spoken to seem close to unanimous that the indictments appear poorly drafted. Perhaps this is just the first bite at the apple and they’ll be revised or tightened. I don’t know. But related to that and likely more important: at least some o...
