You knew that was coming. Immunity isn’t going to protect her from this portion of the program.

I wonder if Trump and his lawyers had a conversation about Trump using the Manafort defense: Try to set up Manafort as the mastermind and Trump just a pawn in PM’s cruel, cruel game.

Not sure how to feel about this. In the end, I think her firing is justified. Yet it still burns me that regular people who are singularly ill-equipped to withstand the pressures put on them are always punished while the real culprits often are not. Hope to see a reversal of that formula here.

It’s often financial. Wages are such that people can’t save enough “FU Money” and so get wedged into all sorts of bad situations. Financial inequality is a blow to liberty.

It would be hard to argue in court if Trump was on the stand and just said “Look, it’s obvious I’m a fucking dupe and an idiot, go easy on me.”

What’s the prosecutor going to say? It’s not the truth?

I suspect that the career opportunities for crooked accountants are much better than you imagine. She will probably lose her CPA status and nobody will put her in the front office but they will be happy to use her behind the scenes.

All about the greenbacks, especially if you are working/living paycheck to paycheck and are one health emergency away from financial ruin.

Perhaps foreign drug cartels who are looking for American accountants who know US financial law?

The shock should have came when their employee received immunity from prosecution. These are not children, they knew what she was up too no later than the immunity deal.
