Paul J. Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, has been charged in New York with mortgage fraud and more than a dozen other state felonies, the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., said Wednesday, an effort to ensure he will still face prison time if Mr. Trump pardons him for his federal crimes.

News of the indictment came shortly after Mr. Manafort was sentenced to his second federal prison term in two weeks; he now faces a combined sentence of more than seven years for tax and bank fraud and conspiracy in two related cases brought by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III.

The article goes on to state the following:

The new state charges against Mr. Manafort are contained in a 16-count indictment that alleges a yearlong scheme in which he falsified business records to obtain millions of dollars in loans, Mr. Vance said in a news release after the federal sentencing.

“No one is beyond the law in New York,” he said, adding that the investigation by the prosecutors in his office had “yielded serious criminal charges for which the defendant has not been held accountable.”

A copy of the indictment is available here.

    No one is above the law in New York? Doesn’t Hillary Clinton have a residence in New York? Pretty sure there should be indictments on her.

    This has nothing to do with manafort. It has to do with the hate that these liberals and Democrats have for Trump. If no one is above the law what about Obama, Hillary, Comey, Loretta Lynch, Brennan, McCabe, page, etc etc etc

    This is not about Manafort, this is about punishing anyone who associates themself with President Trump. It’s to say to the Trump Orbit that President Trump can’t save you from us we will get you no matter how phony the charges are. If not by Federal law then by State law. We the democrats totally control certain states and can make the law say and do what we want. This is scary and needs to be addressed. We are fastly become a communist country. TDS is being used to make this happen with the willingness of normal American who have gotten caught up in the hatred of the President.

    This is pure BS. There’s something really wrong with bringing additional charges to assure jail time just in case he is pardoned. Really??
