AOC: Free Paul Manafort From Solitary

Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Hopefully Manafort's appeal succeeds and it doesn't come to this:


  1. Occasionally-Crazy is a partisan politician with an agenda, using Manafort as a prop as against the idea/practice of solitary confinement.

    As regards protective custody, Manafort shouldn't even be held at Riker's Island. Solitary confinement is a disciplinary penalty for misbehaving prisoners, its use as a substitute for protective custody demonstrates Riker's unsuitability.

    1. The whole thing seems to me to be largely a vengeful act. I can't speak to the charges against Manafort, but the public statements by NY authorities make it clear that in this as in the Cohen case their real interest is in striking at the President.
