(1/3) I'm getting questions about pardons and whether a pardon will save Manafort.
A pardon won't save him. He might think a pardon will, but it won't.
See the threads in the next two tweets.
BTW, I suspect that he Manafort entered a plea deal because he wanted to save Trump from a trial just before the midterms. A Manafort trial in October would have hurt the Republicans enormously.
And this one:
Adding, and yes, it would be political suicide.👇
Bottom line, the only way Trump can get way with pardoning his former campaign chair is if he manages to make himself a dictator.
He won't. If he does, pardons will be the least of our worries.
