      Jim Boyy another person who cant be bothered with the facts huh? Trump loves people like you. Easily manipulated. Say it aint so and scream false news as loud as you want. It wont make you any more intelligent or right

    • @Jim Boyy Sorry man, you’re misinformed. No one was set up. These people have been proven guilty. You’re being a gullible consumer of Right Wing media propaganda. You’re simply repeating lies you’ve been told. And I’ll add that you’re displaing the hatred that they stoke but I’m afraid we’re guilty of that as well. Umm…civility, folks. I know it’s hard at times.

    • @T R all in black and white on paper, truth is there , you just can’t handle it

    • @T R sad that one will make an effort to find the truth and listens to msm and all the lies all the hate ,learn to think for yourself ,rely on one ,that’s why we are working everyday ,banking it ,while u sitting at home wondering

    Ok manafort may not be a violent offender,
    But look who he delivered….TRUMP

    • Manafort should be left in prison to ROT … TRAITOR SUPREME!

    • @Dave Schultz Geez, try another one
      Manafort organized and directed the Republican National Convention which was held in Cleveland, Ohio, from July 19-21.

      Three days after the RNC wrapped up, Manafort addressed questions that had started to be raised about his and the campaigns possible ties to Russia.

    • Manafort joined the Trump campaign on March 29, 2016 and left on August 18, 2016- a tenure of about 140 days. Volunteered? lol yeah

    • More mind numbing boring interviews from MSNBC! Talk to people who can show these simple minded journalists how to manage! Show them Dallas, Texas! They know how to do it. Talk to Shelly Luther to give tips on good management! MSNBC and their current guests keep reading and repeating information that was applicable five or six months ago:. Things change and when things change smart people change with that new information! Isn’t one of the critical signs of dementia constantly repeating the same thing over and over as we continue to see with MSNBC employees. It seems like the dementia test would be much more critical for MSNBC news people considering their statements. I understand that a good deal of the issue is lack of education, very low iQ, lack of experience (or at least remembered experience). Of course, they sound like excessive drug use is part of the issue since the dementia (lack of recent memory) is so widespread at MSNBC. Often there is repetition of the same incoherent phrases four or five times within a very short period of time. Another characteristic of dementia is negativity!. This is the only view expressed on MSNBC. Go to the people who know. Hire Shelly Luther to do interviews! She is much more intelligent, positive and attractive than these clowns!

    • he’s like a crack mule.

    No Joe, he should have been left in prison to die.

  10. Release Michael Cohen…he has a story to tell

    • You’re late sweetie, he’s already out. He was first

    Have you noticed that Trump stands like a pigeon.
    And he even struts like a pigeon.
    He’s also as smart as a pigeon.

    There’s a thing called solitary confinement. If could have and should have been used!

  14. Here is a fun thought, if you don’t want to deal with the virus in prison…

    Then again that means “not” being scum.. which is clearly taking over our government


    1). Senator Rand Paul was just arguing yesterday during a senate hearing that the covid-19 is not a devastating illness and it will only affect a very small percentage of the population.

    2). If this is true then why is it that the presidents former campaign manager gets released from prison based on his potential 2 contract the Coronavirus?

    • Under these circumstances all criminals should be freed, cruel and unusual punishment, oop not rich

      What a bull s**t answer. I thought willie was better than that.

    • NestaGlobal | May 13, 2020 at 3:59 PM | Reply

      Well it’s a strong possibility that prisoners that get over the Coronavirus may have health-related inflammatory complications effecting (heart, lungs, kidneys and brains) after the fact which could swell state and federal prison expenses just to take care of those inmates down the line. The Prudent thing to do would be to release nonviolent inmates if it’s practical from a budgetary standpoint. But this man (Manafort) was at the beginning of his sentence which brings into question if his closeness to the president played any role in his release?

    • NestaGlobal | May 13, 2020 at 4:04 PM | Reply

      @Belinda Mendieta What do you mean?

    • Kentucky has the 2 worse senators in the US Senate. Is it in any wonder non-Kentuckians see it as a garbage state?

    Barely even trying to hide their corruption anymore

  17. Fun fact: Owning a hunting rifle is legal in the U.S. You may not be able to get a tag for what you want to hunt but poaching some animals is generally accepted.

    Oh so everyones getting released? Im sure its not ONLY these Trump people.

    Is anyone else sick and tired of these a holes getting away with everything.

    • Justice is coming….but now it’s for people who have actually committed crimes. Don’t worry though, you’re watching MSNBC so you’ll to oblivious to what is actually happening.

    • @Winston C no argument , just anger , no facts just stupidity, you are a sad person, caught up in the demonic lies of the Demoncrats and msm

    • Mike Shortridge | May 13, 2020 at 9:28 PM | Reply

      @ezra Cohen okay mr. Fox News you get the real facts I’m sure of that LOL

    • Mike Shortridge | May 13, 2020 at 9:34 PM | Reply

      @ezra Cohen no you know it’s not okay I brought this up because they are not releasing every man and women over 67 out of the jails because of covid-19 and if you think it’s right for when Rich dude can get out and not the rest well that’s too bad for you I believe in justice for all and no I’m not a Democrat.

    • Mike Shortridge | May 13, 2020 at 9:40 PM | Reply

      @Christopher Colon the only conspiracy is the letting a rich old man out of prison and not everybody over 67 man or woman who are at risk to get covid-19 so that’s what I was saying and nothing else and why everybody thinks I’m a Democrat is beyond me I hate to inform you I am not have a nice day.

  20. Sure pays to be rich, white, male, and politically connected.
