From Newsweek;

Former Trump Campaign Chair Paul Manafort to Be Jailed for ‘Stupidest’ Case of Witness Tampering: Ex-DOJ Official

Newsweek Gillian Edevane,Newsweek Wed, Jun 6 10:16 AM EDT

Former United States Attorney and University of California law professor Harry Litman speculated Tuesday
that former Trump campaign adviser Paul Manafort will be headed to jail for alleged witness tampering.
His prediction came after special counsel Robert Mueller asked a judge to yank Manafort's bail on Monday
for allegedly attempting to incite perjury among witnesses.

Litman made the prediction during an appearance on MSNBC's Deadline: White House with Nicolle Wallace.
Manafort's behavior was a textbook case of what not to do while on pretrial release, Litman said.

“This is the stupidest thing that a defendant can do, this sort of witness tampering,"
the former deputy assistant attorney general said.

Prosecutors allege that Manafort attempted to contact witnesses by phone and via WhatsApp, an encrypted messaging program.
Two witnesses told investigators that the embattled former campaign chair attempted to coax them into perjuring themselves.

“Prosecutors hate this, judges hate this," Litman explained. "He’s going to have to bring his toothbrush to court on Friday
because the statue says, if they find this happened, there’s a presumption that no circumstances exist that will get him safely there for trial."

He continued, "So there’s the real prospect that he now goes to jail, never to leave even until the end of his sentence.”....

Lets see. His trial isn't scheduled until July 10th. Plus, the trial will probably last
a couple of months or so.

Guess who will be flipping next to cooperate with Mueller.

#1. You can indict a sitting president, only impeach him.
#2. Because they are still collecting evidence against him.

Have to keep in mind, that Manafort has two separate trials pending; one in Federal district of D.C. and the other in Federal district of Virginia. Each court has indictments that differ each of the court cases.

His D.C. trial is September 17 and his VA trial is July 10th.

Manafort by each court is to wear a GPS ankle monitor, which he wears one on each ankle because he was ordered by each court to home confinement. Manafort resides in his home of Virginia.

Manafort has broken his bail bond contract with each of the courts and now becomes separate felonies for each court.

You can read his bail bond contract in Virginia: (4 pages)

and his D.C. case with bail bond order revoked in D.C.: (79 pages)

305 years

Manafort faces a maximum of 305 years in prison if found guilty on all charges in Virginia.

On tax charges he faces in Virginia alone, his likely sentence would be eight years, prosecutors said in a previous court filing. He also faces nine charges of bank fraud and bank fraud conspiracy, which each carry a maximum 30 years in prison, for 270 years maximum.

In the DC case, Manafort faces a likely sentence of 15 years to 20 years in prison if convicted there on five total conspiracy charges and foreign lobbying violations.
The allegations in his criminal indictments, brought by Mueller's office this fall and winter, describe a scheme of shell companies and offshore bank accounts

Manafort used to hide his earnings from lobbying for Ukrainian politicians. He then allegedly used those earnings to obtain mortgages and buy home renovations and luxury goods.

Manafort currently has to inform both the courts in DC and in Virginia if he'd like to leave his house for any reason except for medical emergencies, religious services and to meet with his lawyers or appear in courts.
The Virginia judge's order Tuesday specified he should not drink excessively or use drugs that aren't prescribed to him, and that he's effectively on a "24-hour-a-day lock-down." Manafort has already forfeited his passports to federal authorities and can't apply for new travel documents.

"He is quite manifestly a risk of flight. He has substantial personal assets and faces a substantial period of incarceration if he is convicted," Ellis said in court last week, before issuing today's order.

Manafort is set to go to trial in Virginia on July 10, and in Washington on September 17.

Maybe and maybe not, Ken Starr thought there was nothing in the constitution that said that a president can not be charged, I think we need to test that theory if they can prove that there was a conspiracy there, I am all for a public hanging for treason, Make an example of whoever is guilty of this fiasco so no one wil ever even think of trying this again,

Let's look at what our U.S. Constitution says...

Article I, Section 3:

The Senate shall have the sole power to try all impeachments. When sitting for that purpose, they shall be on oath or affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no person shall be convicted without the concurrence of two thirds of the members present.

Judgment in cases of impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States: but the party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to indictment, trial, judgment and punishment, according to law.

Our current Chief Justice is John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court, the Judicial Branch of our Government.

Another very important point about Impeachment is our founding Fathers would not allow a Statute of Limitations on crimes that a "former" President had made and therefore can be indicted, charged, convicted and sentenced at any future date.
