How to Avoid the Goof Made by Manafort's Lawyers

I've seen two versions of the "unredacted" version of the response filed by Paul Manafort's lawyers. In this version provided by the Associated Press (and opened in Adobe Acrobat) it's clear the redaction failed and whoever did the final... [[ This is a content summary only.

A hasty review of the SL&P year that was 2018

Year in review stories are catnip to me, so I figured I might as well use an unexpected little pocket of free time to create my own listing of big events in 2018 based on a lightning quick review of blog posts from the past year.  This listing is not representative or even all that reflective, and I welcome reader input on stories forgotten or unmentioned (or poorly ranked).  So, for giggles and comment, here is a list of post titles and links providing an imperfect, too-quick review of some not...

Manafort Hearing Today

Paul Manafort may not be contesting Mueller's charge that he broke his cooperation deal by lying.

President Trump is blaming special counsel Robert Mueller's election interference probe for his low Rasmussen Reports approval rating of 50 percent. Damn, when a pollster known for favoring the president is only giving him a 50 percent rating, you know it's pretty bad. [POLITICO] * Speaking...

Thursday round-up

This morning the Supreme Court rounds out its December sitting with an oral argument in Gamble v.

* Trump's talking about pardoning Manafort again. The power of the president to pardon people is clear, but the power of the president to tease a pardon to tamper with a witness is an interesting legal wrinkle. In a way, the pardon power is a Yoda conundrum: "do or do not, there is no publicly Tweeting signals." [NPR] * Speaking of Manafort, his attorneys claim their joint defense agreement covered his tipping off Trump on details of the Mueller investigation. Except... he pleaded guilty. That...

Paul Manafort seemingly poised to get "senior discount" at upcoming sentencing

The piece is authored by Danny Cevallos, an MSNBC legal analyst, and here are excerpts: Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort appeared in a Virginia federal court Friday in a wheelchair, missing his right shoe, and appearing visibly grayer.  H...

Paul Manafort's DC plea agreement has a calculated guideline range of 17.5 to 22 years (though he can only get 10)

In this post last year following the initial indictment of Paul Manafort in DC District Court on 12 federal criminal counts, I speculated based on the amount of money allegedly involved that Manafort's guideline range, the "starting point and the initial benchmark" for his sentencing, would surely be 10+ years in federal prison.  I have just now had a chance to review a copy of Manafort's plea agreement (first discussed here), and I am intrigued to see that it confirms my (too quick) initial gui...
