and was also charged in state court as residential mortgage fraud. Maddow then brought on guest Joyce Vance, former U.S. attorney, and she stated that first thing Manafort’s lawyers will do is file a motion to dismiss the indictment alleging that it subjects him to double jeopardy. Maddow says that Manafort has already admitted to the crimes which makes the defence seem almost impossible to do. Vance then states that it would make it very difficult to survive a jury but, the double jeopardy needs to be thoroughly evaluated and she trusts that the job will be done. I agree with Rachel Maddow. I think that the defence for Manafort will be very hard to construct because he already admitted to the crime. I also feel that Manafort’s lawyers are celebrating the fact that Manafort wasn’t convicted. This is contradicting since Manafort admitted to the crimes. However, I can also see Joyce Vance’s point. I can see Manafort’s lawyers filing for a double jeopardy because the crimes are closely related and similar. Overall, the Rachel Maddow Show was very informative. The moderator did her best to stay “unbiased”. She didn’t make any snide remarks targeting one party. She played devil’s advocate for both the Republicans and Democrats.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
