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.
