Former President Donald Trump just got a huge win and Democrats are absolutely furious. A court has now ruled — the controversy is settled forever.
“A court of appeals supported a lower court ruling that ‘double jeopardy’ protected Paul Manafort from prosecution in New York state after his pardon by former President Donald Trump,” reported Breitbart News.
Even though Trump pardoned Manafort, his 2016 campaign chairman, from any charges at the federal level, a liberal district attorney in New York, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., still targeted him for prosecution.
According to Breitbart, Vance Jr. wanted Manafort to “face more than a dozen state felony charges,” since state charges are separate from federal ones, but it was “too late … to apply to the Manafort case.”
Responding to the appeals court ruling, one of Manafort’s attorneys “announced their satisfaction” with the outcome, saying, “Mr. Manafort is similarly pleased with the result.”
With Manafort’s legal battle likely at an end, he can breathe a sigh of relief — and so can Trump. Liberals have been out to get Trump and his associates from the start. It has been nothing short of a witch-hunt.
