Wiki

President Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, became subject to Mueller’s investigation as a means of obtaining incriminating evidence against Trump. The idea of Russian collusion was merely a facade to justify the investigation. Manafort is accused of tax evasion that occurred before he met Trump. The average sentence for tax fraud is one year and three months, but the prosecutor, who is an ardent Hillary Clinton supporter, is seeking a prison term of 305 years for Manafort. Harvard Law Professor, Alan Dershowitz, says that the Mueller team is squeezing Manafort to get him to ‘sing’ against Trump, but the judge has expressed concern that the requested sentence is so extreme that it may motivate Manafort to make something up to avoid spending the rest of his life in prison. Dershowitz says that this tactic is being used against Manafort by Democrats because the object it to “get Trump’. However, he says that, in cases where Republicans dominate the investigations, they are known to use the same tactic against Democrats. This is a bi-partisan corruption of our judicial system that must be terminated if America is to survive as a free and just nation. But, who will lead the crusade?] -GEG

This looks like a good case to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
