Chris Matthews on Manafort Sentence: ‘Is Putin Saying My Buddy Got Off Pretty Easy?’
Shortly after former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort received a shockingly reduced sentence of 47 months for financial fraud, MSNBC host Chris Matthews wondered aloud Thursday if there was a celebration in Moscow over Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “buddy” getting off “pretty easy.”
“How are they viewing this in Moscow do you think today?” Matthews asked MSNBC analyst Malcolm Nance. “Is Putin saying my buddy got off pretty easy today? What do they think of our justice system that a guy that was facing 20 years got off with four — less than four?”
