Interesting discussion about Manafort's personal safety

Howard Fineman was on with Ari Melber and he wondered what if any physical protection manafort might have asked for for himself and his family as part of the deal.

Im all for this. Putin has a long reach. Which begs the question who will be tasked with this, the FBI, the US Marshals...Space Force?

1. The US Marshals Service handles the witness protection program.

3. I would go with the Space Force option

It has a nice ring to it.

4. Or perhaps he was induced to plead?

By being told he was being turned over to Putin.

5. I'm Not Sure Why Everyone Thinks Putin Would Care

 

He's mainly got what he wanted already. A puppet stooge doing his bidding in the U.S. I'm sure he's already working on what comes next. Besides, it's not like he's ever going to work with Manafort again. If Manafort helps in eventually taking down Drumpf, it's not going to necessarily harm Putin.

7. If you're Putin

You want him on the job as long as possible. Beyond that, Putin has had people killed for less. Were the journalists that he whacked an imminent threat to him? No. Finally, its Perfectly reasonable to wonder whether or not Putin would want Manafort dead.
