Apparently, because the Jackass claimed to have paid the money himself, and did not take it from the Campaign he committed not 1 crime but two. This is based on the money being spent to save the campaign so, it was a campaign crime and also a crime of bribery. I heard several law dogs explaining that.

Apparently, Trump is getting screwed (again), and has, again, been betrayed by his Pecker:

Slate has a pretty good article that explains some state has a double jeopardy law that prevents the state from trying somebody for a crime for which he has been found innocent or guilty. But it says nothing about somebody who had a mistrial! So that one juror actually increased Manafort's chances of being charged in that state. And most of the possible state's allow the use of previous convictions in their trials to show a pattern of criminal behavior. Since accepting a pardon is an admission of guilt, those state trials become slam-dunks.

A Lone Holdout Juror Actually Made It Mo...ump Pardons Him

Three states that can charge Manafort are California, New York, and Illinois: Very Blue states indeed!

Trump is now claiming that turning state's evidence should be illegal! This is not the statement of a normal law-abiding person. This is the statement of a crime boss.

My wife points out that the people in Congress who protect him are all members of that crime family.

NY Times: Manhattan DA looking at criminal charges against Trump Organization - CNN. For too long, Trump used his company and his foundation interchangeably as his personal piggy bank. Because of that, they are now subject to scrutiny. That is even WORSE for the President, as his lack of clothes will be available for all to see. Moreover, Pecker, Cohen, Trump and Manafort are all residents of New York, and Republicans don't have much influence there. As long as the prosecution is not "for the same conduct", New York has no restriction on prosecution.
