Watergate Prosecutor: Paul Manafort case is 'a slam dunk'


Paul Manafort’s defense team rested their case without calling a single witness. Manafort’s lawyer argued that they presented no major rebuttal because Mueller has not put up enough evidence. Watergate Prosecutor Nick Akerman tells Ari Melber that Mueller’s case against Manafort is “the strongest tax case” he’s “ever seen”. Former Counsel to Mayor Bill de Blasio, Maya Wiley says there isn’t “any question” that Manafort is hoping for a Trump pardon, otherwise his lawyers would have mounted “a more significant defense”.
