IMHO
This is way to lenient. When the current situation passes, why should he not be returned to the penitentiary?

If we can open up the economy, why do we have to empty the jails?

One system of justice for Trump's buddies, another for everyone else.

Total corruption from the White House. So, did they let everybody out of jail, or just TRump's henchmen?

You don't like it when your neighbor points out your house is full of termites and the roof is on fire, Clownshack?

The decision to move Manafort to home confinement comes after his attorneys wrote a letter to the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) last month requesting that he be immediately transferred to home confinement because he is at high risk of contracting COVID-19 because of his age and pre-existing conditions.

I assume all others of his age with pre-existing conditions have also been moved out of the prison?

Why bother doing anything about it? The fire will eventually take care of the termites and we can build fresh.

Meanwhile, back in reality, this is the America people like Bruce have created.

A right wing democratic party and a far right wing republican party.

I thought Manafort was ailing and near death....
That's at least that was the picture his lawyers were trying to paint during his sentencing.

I bet he's going to make a "miracle recovery" once he's home.

I'll light the fire
You place the flowers in the vase that you bought today
Staring at the fire,for hours and hours
As I listen to you
Play your love songs all night long for me

Our house is a very very fine house
With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard....

Yes when my time comes I'd like to serve my sentence at home!

Attorneys for every federal, non violent and aged criminal MUST overwhelm the Bureau of Prisons with requests for their clients to serve the remained of their sentences at home.

Michael Cohen was given permission to serve his sentence from home too but then the federal bureau of prisons rescinded that and he's back in prison. Gee, I wonder why that happened?

Funny how this is all working out for Dotard's cronies. Manafort, who does not qualify for this release is released due to COVID concerns from a prison facility with no COVID problems. Michael Cohen is still being held in a prison that actually has a COVID outbreak after originally being listed as eligible for release.

To add to this, Epstein did NOT kill himself.

Trying times we are in.

Seven years at home? Is he wearing an ankle bracelet? How long does anyone believe he'll actually stay home?
