MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - Oct. 8, 2018 - PRLog -- Scott Cooper Miami investigates recent events in the case of Paul Manafort. Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort has recently been convicted of eight counts of various financial crimes by a jury in Virginia on August 22nd and negotiated a plea deal with Special counsel Robert Mueller on September 14th that included a $45 million asset forfeiture. Trump has stated publicly that he is considering granting Manafort a pardon due to the extremely aggressive and inappropriate arrest conducted by the FBI.

Manafort's Virginia trial is about the enormous amount of money which he made from years of working with Ukraine's government and political leaders, which he is being accused of not claiming taxes amongst other financially related crimes. According to Scott Cooper of Miami, Florida Manafort's trial and conviction represent a high stake and high profile tax-related criminal case, but the way which Mr. Manafort was arrested and treated does not reflect his charges. The FBI reportedly raided the Manafort residence in the middle of the night, kicking in the door and waking the entire family from their sleep. Further, once taken into custody he was held in solitary confinement for an excessive amount of time.

"Since Manafort has been convicted, many people are wondering if Trump will make use of his presidential power and pardon him as he had pardoned Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio," says Miami's Scott Cooper. Article II, Section 2, Clause 1 of the constitution gives the president the 'power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment'. Typically, the pardon power is used to mitigate the undeserved harshness of a criminal conviction or sentence. And it is the severely harsh mistreatment of Manafort by the FBI that gives Trump a purpose to exercise his ability to pardon Manafort.
