    DAY 2: MUELLER TEAM GETS LECTURED, LAW LAID DOWN

    Mueller team lectured by judge in Manafort case

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors were lectured by a federal judge on Wednesday for the language they’ve used in the courtroom and more, as the trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort entered its second day.

    The Mueller team was later rebuffed again by Ellis when they tried to introduce photos that eventually would become public of Manafort’s closets filled with suits and high-end clothing.

    While it’s part of their effort to paint Manafort as a tax scofflaw who spent big on luxury items, Ellis would not allow the photos for now.

    Mueller trying to turn court room into class warfare arena, putting having money on trial?!

    Nothing that goes on in that Court Room surprises me. The Judge has told the Feds that only certain evidence is going to be admitted, and it appears that is going to be the case. He wants evidence of the crime admitted. He appears not to allow the Democratic trick of wealth as a factor. The Judge needs a pat on the back for hisrulings.

    So sounds like you are pro money laundering. You know free money without taxes.

    We'll see soon enough if Mr. Manafort is an innocent as a newborn babe, as I'm guessing he'll be exonerated.

    Mueller is just pissed off that Manafort refuses to lie and implicate President Trump.

    The Feds announced they're not even going to call Gates to testify. So there goes their headliner witness.

    Now think about that. They don't even dare call Gates as Manafort's lawyers will totally destroy his credibility which will create reasonably doubt. Manafort's lawyers should call Rosenstein to testify why he dropped the case a decade ago.

    The judge told Mueller that this trial would not be used as a vehicle to attack Trump. Now Mueller can't attack wealth. More than half his case is gone. It will be over next week.

    Manafort is so fuked.

    Manafort keeps trying to blame it on Gates.
    Hilarious.
    Gates carries a backpack.
    Manafort wears four years of suits worth more than what Gates made in four years.

    Manafort bought houses, landscaping, suits and other extravagant items using wire transfers from Cyprus to avoid paying taxes. That's where he's fuked the most.

    Second is fraud. Lying to banks to get loans. He got a 16 million dollar loan right here in Chicago. The loan was a quarter of the bank's assets. The people working at the bank are now witnesses.

    Manafort is fuked.

    Perhaps what Gates has to say will be beneficial to Mr. Manafort's case?

    I would not be surprised to see him called by the defense- if the case gets that far.

    There is a good chance that the charges will be dismissed after the Persecution finishes their case

    I agree! The documents and hard facts speak for themselves. If the jury has a functional brain - Manafort is toast.
