Exclusive: Manafort’s former son-in-law cuts plea deal, to cooperate with government

This sounds…. interesting:

The guilty plea agreement, which is under seal and has not been previously reported, could add to the legal pressure on Manafort, who is facing two indictments brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Manafort has been indicted in federal courts in Washington and Virginia with charges ranging from tax evasion to bank fraud and has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Jeffrey Yohai, a former business partner of Manafort, was divorced from Manafort’s daughter last August.

After Racist Lawyer Goes Viral, the Internet Is Sending Mariachis to His New York Office

I just love the internet so much sometimes:

At least two events will take place outside his offices. One – titled Latin Party at Racist Aaron Schlossberg’s Midtown Office – comes from Unofficial DNC and will take place on Friday. “Assuming all Spanish speakers are undocumented is not only ignorant but a little sad,” the event reads. “It’s also a little sad that Mr. Schlossberg thinks all Hispanics are on welfare. However, Hispanics are not sad people and we will gladly educate you on our culture and language by throwing a big fiesta outside your office! ?”

The second started as a campaign to send a mariachi band to his offices. “Raising $500 to send a mariachi band to cheer up the staff and attorneys at The Law Office of Aaron M. Schlossberg Esq. P.L.L.C. after a difficult day,” the GoFundMe page started by Mark Goldberg said. “We are requesting the band to sing the famous, endearing. and warm Spanish [children’s] song “La Cucaracha,” the cockroach. We are countering hate and racism with the sound of music. Any leftover money will be used to send a delicious taco truck lunch to the staff and a copy of all federal and state statute mentioning undocumented immigrants do not qualify for welfare.”

A local mariachi band agreed to play for free, so the campaign closed. It raised $1,094. While Goldberg originally planned the event for Friday, he has decided to reschedule and to not go public with the event. In an update, he explained that “some on 4chan noticed and want to send people there on Friday to counter it.”

He has also been evicted from his office.
