Previous morning we were all shocked when President Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was indicted on charges that he funneled millions of dollars through overseas shell companies and used the money to buy luxury cars, real estate, antiques and expensive suits.
Manafort surrendered to federal authorities in Washington, D.C. Monday morning after a grand jury approved the charges brought by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller Friday.
On Tuesday, HuffPost reporter Shirish Dáte asked President Trump whether or not he was planning on issuing a pardon to Paul Manafort. The ironic thing is that Manafort hasn’t been found guilty of anything yet. So asking about a pardon is imbecilic.
This is why President Trump refused to answer this question, and he simply thanked all reporters who were there.

The series of charges is the first hand up as a result of Mueller’s five-month investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion between Trump campaign associates and Russia.
The media are such hypocrites. They never ONCE questioned Obama or Hillary for their pardons. They never ever saw a problem or kicked up a fuss when Obama pardoned a murderer or Clinton pardoning Mark Rich, the biggest tax dodger in American history.
Obama could pardon drug dealers and let a terrorist go but HuffPost wants to make everything that Trump does wrong.
