Here is what needs to be understood about all of that; almost all of those, including Manafort, was for tax evasion.
That was never part of the special counsel’s job.
My wife and I watched The Untouchables over the weekend and central to the plot of the movie was that everyone knew that Al Capone was a murderer and bootlegger, but they didn’t have enough evidence for that so they got him on tax evasion.
It seems that the Muller investigation has borrowed from the plot of The Untouchables and decided that if they can’t arrest anyone in Trump’s circle for collusion that never happened, they will throw them all in jail using the tax code.
This is the scariest lesson of them all.
It doesn’t matter what you did or didn’t do, if the Federal Government doesn’t like you, they can fuck you to death in Federal prison with the tax code.
The income tax is now the ultimate government weapon.
It’s time we abolish the 16th Amendment.

An acquaintance was hired to remove the contents of a industrial building. During the course of the work, a small amount of liquid ammonia (from a refrigeration system) was accidentally released to the air. About 100 people in surrounding shops were evacuated. The FBI got involved. Several interviews over the course of several months, and the man was charged with lying to the FBI, which is a felony.
What had actually happened was they had asked the same question different ways and compared answers from one interview to the next. After the expenditure of over $100,000 in legal fees, several weeks in jail, about one year after the original charge, the charges were dropped.
So tell me, who would answer exactly each time the same question but asked in different ways in separate interviews spread across several months? But the headlines will read, Man Charged With Felony.
This is how they got Papadopolous and Flynn.
Having seen whathappened to the above cited guys, and Martha Stewart, and others, why would anyone say a single word to any .gov law enforcement? When stating, say, your educational history, can elicit federal charges, simply saying “My name is…” could wind up in federal charges.
It seems that the most prudent course is to say word zero, present i d as required, and only say “I decline to answer on the grounds that anything I say may incriminate me!” .
The income tax is illegal, Unconstitutional and utterly tyrannical.
