Paul Manafort, the crooked former campaign manager for Donald Trump, is being sent to jail in advance of his trial a judge ruled today, reportedly catching the career criminal off guard.
Footage of Manafort entering the courthouse for what would turn out to be a rough hearing has been released. It shows the blood money lobbyist making his way through a crowd of onlookers as they chant “lock him up!” a perfect callback to the hateful Trump rally chant long directed at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
It was exactly what the man who helped give us the worst president in American history deserved. Manafort is a suspected traitor accused of money laundering, working as an unregistered agent of a foreign nation, and conspiracy against the United States amongst a litany of other crimes. He deserves no sympathy and the full extent of whatever (hopefully) long prison sentence he receives.

Most recently he was caught trying to interfere with witnesses and slammed with obstruction of justices charges and witness tampering. The mountain of evidence is daunting and it looks like the crowd outside the courthouse will get what they want soon enough: Paul Manafort, will indeed, get locked up.
