Re: Understanding the US- Again

folks were predicting a pardon for manafort, but he has instead flipped. full cooperation. and pled guilty to those counts which hung because of one trumpkin juror who held out.

would be interesting to know why now...when he could have leveraged cooperation for a better plea deal.
