Judge orders Manafort to jail while awaiting money laundering and fraud trials

WASHINGTON — A federal judge on Friday ordered former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort to jail to await separate trials on money laundering and fraud charges following allegations that he sought to obstruct the Russia inquiry while he was on house arrest.

U.S. District Judge Amy Jackson revoked Manafort’s bail. Clearly agitated by Manafort’s conduct, she said there appeared to be no terms of release that she was confident that Manafort would follow.

California sees $9 billion surplus, passes budget to help poor

The budget both stores some of the state’s windfall in its rainy day fund, and increases spending on assistance for people living in poverty as well as programs combatting homelessness. The surplus is the state’s largest since at least 2000.

Why are homeless living in such deplorable conditions if this state has a $9 billion surplus? Because Democrats are socking it away for their frivolous pet projects and ignoring this growing problem which is a constant reminder of the desperation some individuals face in California. It is cruelty beyond anything you see at illegal border crossings.

So a sailor in the navy takes a picture of his ship and he gets charges with a crime while he had no intent to do anything wrong. Now Hillary knows what she is doing is wrong. She knows she is receiving and sending classified information via a private email server. But when Comerly gets a hold of her case he says she had no intent and that in her case intent is required for it to be a crime. Same crime, but she gets different treatment. Huh? Thank God President Trump pardoned the sailor! If only Hillary would be charged, then we’d have some justice.

Feds have reassembled Michael Cohen’s shredded documents, discovered over 700 pages of encrypted messages

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan have reassembled 16 pages of shredded documents seized from President Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, and recovered 731 pages of encrypted text messages.

He is under investigation for bank fraud, wire fraud and campaign finance law violations. The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday prosecutors are also examining whether he broke the law by working as a secret lobbyist.

KinseyLeaky June 15, 2018 at 7:35 PM

I’ll throw some thoughts out here about illegals coming across the border being separated from their kids.
First of all they illegally crossed and have no rights either humane or lawful or emphathy related. They choose to come across illegally and seem to think they can demand certain rights and laws apply to them.
I will never understand what people don’t understand about the word ILLEGAL immigrant. They have no rights here and the government will literally do whatever they want to do with them.
So some woman was breastfeeding a kid when they separated them, well boo hoo go back across the border if you don’t like it.

I’m really tired of turning on any news and see that crap about illegals not getting a fair deal after they sneak over here or ask for asylum and want instant full rights as citizens.

Stay in your own country, America should not have to bow down to your complaining when you are illegal.

@Kinsey-you are right. You should not drag your kids along when you break the law.

SF oh June 15, 2018 at 11:25 PM

Agree with Kinsey. I have friends whose relatives are trying to follow US Visa regulations and enter the US legally. Why should people breaking the law and storming the border get a free pass while people trying to enter legally have to jump through hoops. They chose to cross the border illegally- whatever happens, is their own fault.

mtzman June 16, 2018 at 12:03 AM

Perhaps the reason you don’t understand what people don’t understand about the word illegal immigration is that you don’t understand it yourself. American immigration laws are extremely complicated and technical. There is a difference between improper entry, which can either be a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances, and unauthorized presence, which is not a crime. Those accused of undocumented status do have rights under the Constitution and the laws of our nation. So boo hoo yourself.

HappyPappy June 16, 2018 at 8:15 AM

The government said on Friday that 1,995 children were separated from 1,940 adults at the U.S.-Mexico border between April 19 and May 31, as the Trump administration implements stricter border enforcement policies.
In May, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a ‘zero tolerance’ policy in which all those apprehended entering the United States illegally would be criminally charged, which generally leads to children being separated from their parents.

Enter legally and you will be welcome and your children will remain with you. When will those people get it?

SF oh June 16, 2018 at 1:18 PM

Why are the Dems launching their latest fake outrage over this ‘separating families’ baloney? If an American citizen commits a crime – their kids don’t go to jail with them either. The illegals want to be treated like citizens ….. ok, you got it dude! Commit a crime – go to jail – separated from your kids….. same as anyone else.

Chicken Little June 16, 2018 at 1:47 PM

SF oh,
If Democrats had their way criminals wouldn’t go to jail, so they wouldn’t be separated from their children, either.

Rollo Tomasi June 17, 2018 at 4:08 PM

The Statue of Liberty welcomes all who desire to come. It makes no mention that they should enter however and whenever they want, or without the permission of our government. The statement on the statue is still honored through legal immigration.

SF oh June 17, 2018 at 4:42 PM

Aspirin – Have you volunteered yet to Foster 20 or 30 immigrant children in your home? I assume you’re willing to do it on your own dime, without any compensation from the State? Are you a-ok with putting these children into school with your children/grandchildren without knowing if they’ve been vaccinated or if they are carrying whooping cough or other infections diseases? What if they do have illnesses – are you prepared to pick up the check on those medical expenses? Or maybe you’d rather volunteer to support several immigrant families – all expenses paid by you, of course. I’m sure you don’t want families separated. How many can fit in your house? Let’s see, a four bedroom house – one family per room…… can your house accommodate about 30 people? When you run out of rooms in your house, how many apartments can you afford to house several more families? Not to mention food, medical, transportation ….. Instead of just referring to others as ignorant- why not set an example to us ignorant folks? Get out there and bring in those huddled masses —- to YOUR house, at YOUR expense.

Lies, lies, and more lies June 17, 2018 at 5:01 PM

Yes, Aspirin, it is time again to remind the ignorant of the meaning of the Statue of Liberty. And it has nothing at all to do with immigration. It was a gift of France to celebrate our liberty and independence.

The poem you are quoting was added after the fact, and does not establish United States policy.

Fred P. June 18, 2018 at 7:36 AM

Aspirin is good at talk and whining, but he/she/it has never DONE anything of substance.

Just another whiny unhappy liberal loser that hides behind a keyboard – just like his/her/its alter egos randy and local.

Again, since aspirin/local/randy is so unhappy here, maybe they/he/them/she/it need to move to some third world $hithole communist country where they can be happy.

Then they can expound to the “unwashed masses” about their expertise on any and every subject that comes to mind.

They’re experts only in their own minds. Again, they’re probably nothing more than DNC trolls/interns….or illegal immigrants spouting the DNC crap.

I have trouble keeping up with each week’s Bussed-In Phoney Outraged Protestors. Wasn’t it about a week ago when the Bussed-In Phoney Outraged Protestors (BIPOP) condemned Kim Jung Un for many things including Generational Prisons? From what I have heard, in North Korea, if a person commits a crime the whole family is put in a prison camp. So last week the BIPOPs were shocked and outraged that children were sent to prison, along with the parent, for something the parent did. This week, the BIPOPs are shocked and outraged because they want children sent to prison with their parents for something the parent did. 🤔. I guess they’re under the impression that there’s always been a day-care center in San Quentin. A seven-year old has those Folsom Prison Blues – but at least he’s with Dad – who is ,obviously, a great role model. I don’t have the energy to keep up with the phoney outrage. Or the memory chip to try to remember what theyre outraged about each week.

Stormy Daniels’ friend rips Rudy Giuliani’s ‘hypocritical’ rant, notes President Trump himself appeared in softcore porn videos

Evans, a friend and vocal supporter of Daniels, pointed out the irony in Giuliani playing the purity card when Trump himself has appeared in three softcore Playboy videos. Evans also said Giuliani is either clueless or simply ignores Melania Trump’s moderately successful modeling career, which included posing naked with other women.

Giuliani’s forceful rebuke of Daniels, 39, came after the X-rated actress filed a fresh lawsuit charging that Trump’s longtime fixer Michael Cohen and her former lawyer, Keith Davidson, “colluded” to keep her from going public about allegedly having sex with Trump in 2006.

Once ‘Shocked’ by Obama’s ‘Latte Salute,’ Hannity Ignores Trump Saluting North Korean General

In 2014, the Fox News host made a huge deal over Obama saluting his own troops with a cup of coffee in his hand.

The blatant hypocrisy continues.

In the same week that he was caught lauding President Donald Trump for meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un just a few years after criticizing President Barack Obama for “catering to dictators,” Sean Hannity somehow failed to bring up the awkward moment when Trump saluted a North Korean general in Singapore on Thursday’s night’s show. Instead, he spent the vast majority of the 9 p.m. hour melting down.

It wasn’t just Hannity. As of late Thursday night, Trump’s salute received numerous mentions on both CNN and MSNBC but did not come up once on Fox News.

Even the article said the overall satisfaction rate “only registered a mere 38 percent.” So with Democrats at 13 percent, independents at 36 percent, and only 2/3 support by Republicans, and the fact that there are a lot more Democrats and independents than Republicans, I’d say things aren’t looking all that great for Republicans.

Local – obviously you know nothing about politics or finance.

Both chambers of the California legislature were dominated by the democrats since 1959 except in 1969-1971 when the republicans held both chambers and 1994-1996, when republicans briefly held a majority in the Assembly.

Schwarzenegger was governor 2003-2011.

A $9B “surplus” is offset by a unfunded liabilities of between $87B and $136B. That makes a net deficit of between $78B and $127B.

It’s apparent that you’re nothing more than aspirin parroting the DNC party line, and are unable to comprehend the basic facts.

Despite the left’s furor over the separation of children from immigrants crossing the borders illegally, President Trump’s approval rating tied his highest since taking office at 45% according to Gallup. Rasmussen reported a stunning 48%.

Democrats were strangely silent on many aspects of the nation’s immigration policy during Obama’s term in office when the same procedures were enforced. One has to wonder how the left’s conscience suddenly sprang to life amid the recent controversy when they had been lying dormant for eight years. And, of course, Nancy Pelosi in a predictable flurry of hand waving decried the policy and its effect on “the children, the children” as an outrage.

RUSH: Meddling in an election is a huge crime.

Thanks to the FBI inspector general’s report, we now have proof — and documented evidence, that the FBI’s top leadership was meddling in the 2016 election.

Isn’t this amazing?

The meddling was not happening in Russia. It was happening in the FBI. While, the Russians might have tried some stuff in the Democrat primaries, the top level of the FBI was soft on Hillary. But they used a sledge hammer on President Trump.

After listening to the way Gowdy presented this today — it is clear that the ongoing effort to cover up and to water down what actually happened is still widely in practice.

Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,

The reason crazy Democrats are pretending to be mad is not that kids are being separated from their parents. It’s because a law (mandating separation) that has existed since Presidents Bush and Obama is being enforced by Trump.
It’s not the United Stated that is separating children from their parents. It’s the parents who illegally sent their kids alone to the United States, or who entered the country illegally, who led to the separation.
In other words, Randy, separation was an effect of illegal conduct and not a cause.
Probably still beyond your comprehension but that’s about as simple as I can explain it, Randy.

RBS June 20, 2018 at 12:28 PM

Every two or three years I like to forward a comment on this venue, but usually not on politics…

Here is what I see… first, I voted for Obama, both times, and considering the Republican candidates offered, it looks like my choices were correct.

The Republicans have offered fairly poor candidates in the last 24 years, in my estimation.

But, I struggle to identify anything substantial or positive that resulted from the Obama presidency… actually, in the second term, some very disappointing decisions were made by the administration.

The only conclusion possible, is that the Republicans, Democrats, Independents and the rest, have been completely lacking in ideas and talent for some time now.

POLITICIANS ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN BEING ELECTED AND STAYING ELECTED… they are not immersed in the welfare of their constituents, their States nor their country.

Along comes a candidate that is really not a Republican, but is actually totally focused on the well-being of the United States and nothing else… with policies that made this country great and based on the best common sense humanly available. Perhaps this candidate may be the only individual that, if elected, has far more to lose than gain?

The detractors of this candidate are only interested in style, not substance, not policy, not results… what else could explain such an attitude?

Yes, Mr. Trump has made a certified fool out of every politician in our country… past and present. He has turned almost every media “expert” into a raving sociopath… a whole lot of talented entertainers, actors and comedians have been turned to jealous, babbling, zombies, incapable of rational thoughts.

I contend, that anyone that mindlessly wishes for the failure any president, Democrat, Republican, or otherwise, is a traitor. Nobody agrees with every statement, decision or idea that any president offers… however, we are a nation of laws, but laws do not determine the destiny or greatness of any country, it is the citizen’s substantial willingness to obey and enforce those laws.

Trump could house all the illegal aliens en famille at Mar a Lago and the dimmiecrats (Schumer, Pelosi et al) would still scream like stuck pigs at the horrible injustice wrought by the evil Republicans.

Here is another reason career politicians won’t pass legislation to control our borders, some of those giving them campaign contributions want cheap labor.

“TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) – More than 100 workers were arrested Tuesday at an Ohio meatpacking plant by federal agents following a yearlong immigration investigation, the second large-scale raid within the state in the past two weeks.

The investigation focused on whether the company knowingly hired people who are in the country illegally, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said.

The agency said it also was looking into whether many of the workers were using fraudulent identification belonging to U.S. citizens.”

“Two cases illustrate how big-name employers benefit from illegal labor and why undocumented workers are easily exploited.”

LIFE saved ? ? ?
“Ajo Station Border Patrol agents rescued a 6-year-old Costa Rican boy after he was abandoned on the border road Tuesday evening.

Agents discovered the child west of Lukeville, Arizona and just north of the border, in temperatures over 100 degrees.”

Lifetime politicians don’t want change, they want more future voters. But Democrat and Republican have turned a blind eye to the problem of illegal aliens for decades. Trump is working to fix the problem they refused to.

Where were the screaming liberals when this policy was enforced during the Obama administration? Didn’t bother them then!

Randy June 20, 2018 at 8:16 PM

Better where were the conservatives?

Fred P. June 20, 2018 at 9:51 PM

And as expected, Randy can’t answer Lena’s question…. but redirects it with another question.

Btw, you still need to work on basic sentence construction.

Just like a typical lib.

Dr Jellyfinger June 20, 2018 at 9:35 PM

All this BS about illegal alien kids has been stirred up to distract the nation from all the F.I.B.’s malfeasance, the I.G. report and testimony that exposes all the lies and treason that’s been committed by left wing zealots to try to remove Trump from office and reverse the decision American voters made in 2016…. not to mention the coverup and blatant disregard for the law they created to keep Hillary Clinton out of jail.

FOX News is all over it & all the other networks are ignoring it.

Poster children of the DNC….

And how about Griffin for Secretary of “Education”?

HappyPappy June 21, 2018 at 8:31 AM

Nothing to see here, move along. He’s just one more left-wing lunatic, and we’re surrounded by them in California.

Do you ever wonder why it’s them who are the loudest complainers about free mental health care? Try to minimize your acid trips, you could be headed to the same asylum as Crazy Pete. It’s maniacs like him that created the need for the Secret Service.
Hey Pete….. do you think Henry would approve of your insane behavior?

JSW Steel investing $500 mil to build steel plant in Ohio instead of India.
500 new permanent jobs and more than 1000 contractors will be hired to build it.
Well done Mr President
MAGA

Fred P. June 21, 2018 at 7:24 PM

Now the liberals will be screaming and crying because we’re discriminating against India.

mtzman June 21, 2018 at 8:10 PM

You do realize that JSW is not an American company, don’t you?

Original G June 21, 2018 at 9:17 PM

Note, the ONLY reason steel mill up in Pittsburg is still open is because South Koreans bought into it. An it too took half a billion dollars to modernize.

Dr Jellyfinger June 21, 2018 at 9:27 PM

What difference does it make? Invest in America! Keep our people employed.

Fred P. June 22, 2018 at 6:43 AM

mtzman – So what if JSW isn’t an “American” company? Are you saying that people should only work for American-owned companies?

Ok, let’s kick Hitachi, BMW, Budweiser, Purina, French’s, Frigidaire, 7-11, Rolls-Royce, Siemens AG, etc… out of the US.

Did you know that foreign-owned companies employed 6.8 million workers in the United States in 2015, up 22% from 2007, according to preliminary data from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. The increase is notably larger than overall U.S. private employment growth, which was 3.6% over the same span.

mtzman June 22, 2018 at 3:32 PM

I don’t know a whole lot about JSW but I do know that there is increased scrutiny of foreign investment in the US under CIFUS (Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States), especially in areas that may be related to national security, such as steel for the oil and gas industry. I also know that the investment is still in the planning stages and at least half of the proposed investment will depend on various factors and economic conditions in the future.

As an aside, more than ten times the number of new JSW jobs were lost during 2017 alone due to companies moving out of the US to other countries. So does that cancel out the “well done, Mr. President” shout out?

HappyPappy June 22, 2018 at 6:07 PM

Sorry mtzman, your rough, leftist inspired, speculation doesn’t mean much. So…..to answer your question……NO.

Nunya June 21, 2018 at 5:42 PM

Some people are so gulable! It isn’t Trump’s policy it has been in place for years. Hussein did it, likely so did the bushes and clintons. But you people can’t help but jump on any reason to attack him. He is keeping his promises unlike the last few presidents! Would you rather have a congress that does nothing along with the president? God people use the God gave you.

Liberals believe “Families Belong Together.” Yeah, right. Illegal immigrants maybe, but not the families of military serving overseas, the children of which go months without seeing one or both parents. When did Nancy Pelosi and her ilk get a conscience? They jump on any popular cause to make themselves look like “saviors.” They are not. They are irresponsible and asleep at the wheel. Otherwise, they would get off their duffs and pass legislation to correct the policies that have brought about illegal immigration..

MS-13 gang members, including 10 illegal immigrants, charged in deaths of Virginia teens –

Eleven MS-13 gang members – all of whom are illegal immigrants except one – are facing life in prison after being charged in the kidnappings and deaths of two teens whose bodies were dug up in a Virginia park last year. The ages of the male gang members charged Friday ranged from 20 to 27. All of them are from El Salvador and only one – who is believed to have fled the country – is not in police custody, according to NBC Washington. Police uncovered the bodies of 17-year-old Edvin Escobar Mendez and 14-year-old Sergio Arita Triminio at Holmes Run Park in March 2017 after receiving a tip. The two teens disappeared just weeks apart the prior year. After Mendez vanished and was reported missing …

These are the kind of people the democrats want us to accept.
