Manafort Sentencing is Massive Blow to Mueller’s Legitimacy

The move gives the President a little bit of breathing room, and whole lot of ammunition in the Russian “collusion” calamity.

Robert Mueller

As Robert Mueller continues to toil away, attempting to ensnare President Trump in any sort of legal trap, the nation is growing weary.

We have been inundated with Mueller-this and Mueller-that for months, with a new purported “final report” coming “next week”…over and over again.

What has irked Americans most is how far Mueller has strayed from the Russia “collusion” story in his indictments so far.  Men like Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort are going to jail, sure, but nothing about their crimes seems to indicate that President Trump is the deft KGB-agent-in-disguse that the democrats are purporting.

Now, a judge has pushed back against Mueller and his s0-called “witch hunt” by going extremely easy on Paul Manafort, and bucking Mueller’s suggested sentencing.

A federal judge known for his impatience in court sentenced former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on Thursday to less than four years behind bars, defying a requested prison term of 19 to 24 years by special counsel Robert Mueller.

T.S. Ellis III, who was appointed by President Ronald Reagan and serves on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, called Mueller’s recommended sentence “excessive.” Instead, the former U.S. Navy aviator, who piloted an F-4 Phantom before heading to Harvard Law School and then Oxford University, handed down a 47-month sentence.

“To impose a sentence of 19-24 years on Mr. Manafort would clearly be a disparity. In the end, I don’t think the guidelines range is at all appropriate,” Ellis said.

Ellis then blasted those who would claim to know better than he.

“I think what I’ve done is sufficiently punitive, and anyone who disagrees should spend a day in a federal penitentiary,” he said, adding that he wants Manafort to receive credit for the nine months he’s already served behind bars.

This pushback against the wild and unending Special Counsel investigation may very well set the tone for the week to come, giving President Trump a little breathing room and a whole lot of figurative ammunition.

NO JOKE: Bernie Sanders Says He Would Let Boston Bomber Vote — From Jail (Watch)

There are no words…

Every proud American has a duty to make sure President Trump is re-elected simply so Democrat Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders never steps foot in the Oval Office. His socialist policies would cause irreversible damage on America – and that’s the point. That is what progressives want to see happen. Monday night on CNN, Bernie said he’d be cool with the Boston bomber voting from prison. But not just him. All prisoners. No joke. From Daily Wire: Socialist Bernie Sanders said during a CNN Democratic town hall event that he would let the Boston Marathon bomber, sex predators, and murderers vote in U.S. elections while in prison. An audience member asked, “Would [you] support enfranchising people like the Boston Marathon bomber, a convicted terrorist and murderer? Do you think those convicted of sexual assault should have the opportunity to vote for politicians who could have a direct impact on women’s rights?” Sanders noted, “If somebody commits a serious crime, sexual assault, murder, they’re going to be punished. They may be in jail 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, their whole life. That’s what happens when you commit a serious crime. But I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away … you’re running down a slippery slope … I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.” Bernie topped it off with this final line, “I believe every single person does have the right to vote.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMyrChsBG68 Just completely crazy, right? Speaking of crazy, Ann Coulter has completely lost her mind. In 2016, she backed Donald Trump harder than anybody because he promised to take a tough stance…

EXPOSED: Ocasio-Cortez & Omar Caught Violating Rules, Experts Say They WON’T Be Punished

Because, you know – OF COURSE!

If you’re a “cool” freshman member of Congress, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) and Ilhan Omar (MN), you can do whatever you please and get away with it. Well, that pretty much pertains to every member of Congress – but that’s beside the point. AOC and Omar may have been caught violating the rules, but they’re going to skate. Craziness. From Daily Caller: House progressives are violating congressional rules by using a dark money group to help accomplish their caucus’s legislative goals, experts told The Daily Caller News Foundation. The leaders of the 97-member Congressional Progressive Caucus could face a formal censure or reprimand for using outside funds and services from the Congressional Progressive Caucus Center (CPCC), a nonprofit group, according to the experts. House rules prohibit congressional caucuses from accepting such support from outside organizations. But although the progressive caucus’s relationship with the outside charity group “seems like a clear violation of the rule,” there likely won’t be any consequences anytime soon, Acton Institute editor Joe Carter, who has researched congressional caucuses, told TheDCNF. Omar and Ocasio-Cortez joined Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in a video put out by Rolling Stone. The trio says a whole lot while literally saying nothing. Pelosi even went as far as to demand President Trump not seek re-election in 2020. You know, because a booming economy and all-time low minority unemployment is apparently a bad thing. Pelosi: “If I had to say something to Trump, I probably wouldn’t say anything, because I don’t think that it’s worth the extra attention.” She added, “Mr. President, do the country a favor, don’t run.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiQr6XtcdwE#action=share Omar represents Minnesota’s fifth district. A new report claims it is the “terrorist recruitment capital” of the United States of America. As if Omar wasn’t dealing with enough at the moment,…
