    Give him a break, it's his first day. He will get the hang of it.

    I just assume guys like him get to make huge pasta dinners in their cells like in Goodfellas and live like they're under house arrest in a small apartment.

    Good. I hope he’s lives a long, long miserable life behind bars.

    Hopefully he’s the first of many on team trump that deserves life in jail.

    It makes me so happy to know he's miserable. I hope many more in Trump's circle get to experience a slice of the misery they so love subjecting everyone to.

    "He had lived for the last eight months in his Alexandria, Virginia, condo under house arrest -- a circumstance so confined and uncomfortable, a doctor wrote to the judge regarding his conditions."

    Bruhhhhhhh.
    I just don't understand.

    My wife accidentally took both sets of car keys to work today, with plans to go out with her mother afterward, so I was essentially stranded in the house all Saturday...the thought of that in perpetuity is awful. But then again I'm not a treasonous bitch tampering with witnesses.

    Garbage article that is seemingly trying to get sympathy for him.

    Oh boo fucking who my condo is so opressive.

    There are thousands of people in prison for months without anverdict because of a thousand dollar or even less bail they can't pay because they are poor as fuck.

    Get fucked every rich prick who finally experiences even a smidge of justice.

    No wonder he feels comfortable contacting witnesses. There's literally no consequences for the actions of these people. I highly doubt someone like Manafort would turn on Trump. Not when Trump can just tweet about how unfairly he's being treated and just pardon him and his supporters would cheer.

    Learn what "literally no consequences" actually means. This is a story about a formerly wealthy campaign manager and his new life in Federal prison.

    I'm sure he's in a low security facility, but why would the warden allow any of this? It's why he was detained in the first place.

    JetmanJay, I'm guessing you're right.

    After being stripped of his electronic devices, Manafort's lawyers motioned for him to be allowed visiting hours with his pet carrier pigeon, Beaky, along with a pen and some paper to enable him to draw the bird's portrait.
     
  35. Some people...

    Not only do the rules not apply there playing a different game.

    It's good enough for Ant-Man this bitch can suck it up.
     
  36. Lots of rich people (especially if you have political ties) get "perks" like that when they go to jail. Reminds me of Martha Stewart's cushy "Club Fed" stint.

    American justice system is a sick joke

    I remember when it got announced he was going to jail I asked if he was going to real jail or rich people jail and posters here mocked me. Wow, surprise, the rich lawyer goes to a rich person jail.

    That doesn't really seem like jail to me. Dude is basically on house arrest in a different location. This man is pretty much accused of committing treason and is living better in jail than someone who gets sent in for something minor. I also fully believe no matter what he's convicted of he'll be pardoned by Trump.

    He is being moved to a new facility ahead of his trial. He tried to fight the move but the judge rejected it. He also tried to bullshit for a delay that he was not ready due to improper facilities etc. but was caught on recorded calls saying he had reviewed everything etc. and was ready.

    This is disgusting. So he gets VIP treatment for what reason exactly? Connections? Money? Isolation for safety I can understand, but he should be treated like any prisoner. But nope, he's of the elite class. What a sick joke this system is. And why the fuck would you allow someone in jail for witness tampering over email and phones access to computers and phones. Jesus.
