Trump Falsely Claims Manafort Judge Found ‘No Collusion’

Donald Trump

As political pundits were scratching their heads over the extremely light prison sentence (47 months vs. 19-24 years per guidelines) given to former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort yesterday, Donald Trump clearly began to feel vindicated yet again.

This morning the Donald tweeted,”Both the Judge and the lawyer in the Paul Manafort case stated loudly and for the world to hear that there was NO COLLUSION with Russia. But the Witch Hunt Hoax continues as you now add these statements to House & Senate Intelligence & Senator Burr. So bad for our Country!”

In reality, the judge in the case merely stated that the crimes Manafort was found guilty of did not involve ‘collusion’ with Russia. Judge TS Ellis did not declare there was no collusion.
