(National Sentinel) Exonerated: Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt dropped a bombshell on Sean Hannity’s audience Tuesday as the network played a clip of her recent interview with POTUS Donald Trump.
It seems the president is considering pardoning his short-term campaign manager, Paul Manafort, just days after a Virginia jury found him guilty on eight counts of tax fraud and related financial crimes — after special counsel Robert Mueller’s thug Democrat prosecutors went back and dug up old charges against after he was cleared by the Obama Justice Department (how’s that for irony?).
He now faces 80 years in prison — a ridiculous amount of time when you consider murderers often serve 20-25 years — and he still faces another trial in Washington, D.C., next month.
During her interview with Hannity, Earhardt said, “He mentioned pardoning Manafort.”
“He did mention pardoning Manafort?” Hannity asked.
“He did. He said he considered that. He feels I think he feels bad for Manafort. They were friends, he didn’t work for him for very long. Worked for him for basically 100 days,” said Earhardt.
“The president didn’t know about all of this tax stuff. He wouldn’t know about that.”
On Tuesday upon hearing the verdict, POTUS Trump mentioned he felt bad for Manafort.
“It doesn’t involve me but I still feel really sad…you know it’s a very sad thing that happened. This has nothing to do with Russian collusion. This started as Russian collusion…this has absolutely nothing to do…this is a witch hunt and it’s a disgrace,” said the president.
He’s right, of course. And again, there is that dose of irony that the Obama regime looked at similar charges against Manafort in 2014 but declined to prosecute.
The bottom line is this: After the Obama FBI and Justice Department decision to not only pass on charging an obviously guilty Hillary Clinton for essentially trafficking in classified information via her multiply-hacked personal server; after Deep State operatives during the waning months of Obama’s presidency cooked up a scheme to undermine Trump’s candidacy and presidency with improperly obtained FISA warrants; and after all of the fraudulent representations before Congress — POTUS Trump should exonerate Paul Manafort and anyone else he chooses who gets caught up in this bogus, fabricated, witch hunt of an investigation.
