2. I've seen people say he's doing this because he's out of money and knows a pardon is coming.

We'll have to see. I feel like a pardon with midterms around the corner would be brutal for the GOP.

3. He would do a pardon after the midterms

He might even wait until he is a lame duck (either as he is being forced out, losing the GOP nomination for 2020, or losing the 2020 general election). I think it will part of a flurry of pardons for everyone including himself.

4. As I understand it (IANAL):

If Manafort accepts a pardon he can then be compelled to testify against others (oh, Trump for example), and in the process he wouldn't be allowed to plead the 5th amendment (as he wouldn't be in danger of incrimination himself, having already been pardoned).

5. Giuliani comments




JUST IN: Rudy Giuliani, the president's lawyer, tells @BuzzFeedNews there have been no pardon discussions between Manafort and/or his lawyers and Trump and/or his lawyers.

6. I've never seen anything like that Manafort superseding information -- the thing he'll plead to

Someone recently posted a link to a site that unrolls threads. I'll see if I can find that.

I know y'all are used to be saying "no, this is typical, it happens all the time," but I've never seen anything like that Manafort superseding information -- the charging instrument he'll plead to.
