Oh, I see, so they need to prove he made an offer. Then what?

Then we will see the MSM conjure up their own narrative and the left will draw conclusions and make up conspiracies about bad intentions, and then? well nothing will happen, why? because nothing happened. But the left will spend thousands of hours beating the empty bush.

Making an offer is NOT a crime if nothing comes of it...

That's just it...You want someone to go to jail for the crime of "bluster"...

If you've read the article, you'd see that the main cause for the exchanges was that Manafort was owed money for work already done...He baited them with false promises to get what he was owed...

Crap like that's done all of the time...I don't see where a crime occurred...

This is silly. If you ask a child for sex you have committed a crime whether it happens or not.

Fifth paragraph down...which negates the whole article...
The continuation of the paragraph(under the video)which you conveniently overlooked.NOTE THE BOLDED PARTS.

Yeah....I saw the word "POTENTIAL"...

I don't believe people should go to jail for "coulds"...

Now take Hillary Clinton, who gave away uranium to Russia and...Lo and behold!...Her husbands "fee" for a speech immediately doubled...

THAT is "pay to play"...Not a "maybe" like manafort...

Correct...

And if you thought it through, you'd realize that the hookers aren't arrested until AFTER the transaction is made, or alt least, arranged...

The article in the OP already says that there are zero indications briefings were given, and the guy Manafort was trying to get in touch with never replied...

I expect Paul will soon get a chance plead his case before a jury of his peers…unless he caves and cops a plea.
