Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says Manafort sentencing shows justice isn't 'blind,' it's 'bought'
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) sees Paul Manafort’s 47-month sentence for bank and tax fraud as further proof that the criminal justice system is broken.
On Thursday evening, MSNBC’s Ari Melber tweeted that the sentence is “far below” the recommended 20 years, despite “extensive felonies and post-conviction obstruction.” This is a “reminder of the blatant inequalities in our justice system that we all know about, because they reoccur every week in courts across America.”
Ocasio-Cortez agreed. “Paul Manafort getting such little jail time for such serious crimes lays out for the world how it’s almost impossible for rich people to go to jail for the same amount of time as someone who is lower income,” she tweeted. “In our current broken system, ‘justice’ isn’t blind. It’s bought.” Catherine Garcia
