The following YouTube video is from the Tucker Carlson Show:
Tucker: Let’s be real. Paul Manafort is jail tonight because prosecutors want him to testify against President Trump.
This is a total perversion of our justice system. Someone needs to rein in this abuse. Where are the judges?
Well, let’s look at the judge who agreed to send Paul Manafort to jail.
In November of last year, Bloomberg posted an article about U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson.
The article reports:
Earlier this year, for instance, she dismissed a lawsuit filed by the parents of two of the four Americans who died at the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya in 2012, seeking to hold Trump’s election opponent Hillary Clinton responsible.
And four years ago, she sided with the Obama administration request and put on hold a lawsuit by House Republicans demanding papers related to former Attorney General Eric Holder’s botched Fast-and-Furious gun-tracking operation.
…It’s rare for judges to hold white-collar offenders behind bars before a trial or guilty plea — even Bernard Madoff was allowed to remain free on a $10 million bond — but it happens.
Judge Jackson was appointed by President Obama in 2011.
