Mueller argues Manafort has not accepted responsibility

Source: The Hill

Special counsel Robert Mueller is pushing back on Paul Manafort's claim that he has accepted responsibility for his crimes and deserves a lighter sentence.

"The defendant blames everyone from the Special Counsel's Office to his Ukrainian clients for his own criminal choices," Mueller said in a response Tuesday to the former Trump campaign chairman's sentencing memo.

"Manafort suggests, for example, that but for the appointment of the Special Counsel's Office, he would not have been charged in connection with hiding more than $55 million abroad, failing to pay more than $6 million in taxes, and defrauding three financial institutions of more than $25 million dollars," he continued.

Manafort is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday afternoon in his criminal case in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. The former Trump campaign chairman was convicted over the summer of eight criminal charges, including five counts of filing false tax returns, two counts of bank fraud and one count of failing to report foreign bank accounts.

2. The message needs to go out that there are severe consequences for

crimes like these. There are more criminals to come. There are the future criminals who will not do these crimes because they donít want to do the time.

Give him the maximum penalty.

4. I agree!

The only thing these criminals like about this country is how easy it is to fuck it over.

I never paid attention to politics until the 2000 election. Went to bed with a Gore win, woke up to a completely different outcome. My life changed immediately.

Whats more maddening is on shows like Washington Journal or Hartmann, I have listened to the callers discuss what NEEDS to happen in America. None of it happens! All talk, no bite.

How do we change this?
