why not hold FARA violations over his head? I thought at least they had that... turns out that was even nothing
He plead to lesser crimes and fully cooperated like a good little boy.
If he tried to pull a Manafort they would have thrown the book at him as well.
What were his greater crimes?
Here's a hint: you don't plead to lying to Federal investigators as a lesser crime. It was the lying that was used as the leverage. That's highly irregular for the FBI to allow someone to plead to lying. If they had greater crimes then those would have been the leverage, with a recommendation for light sentencing.
They had him for lying.
So what were those greater crimes?
More importantly - what did he give the special prosecutors? Something about Trump? Trump and Russia (oh my)?
Or maybe something unrelated to Trump or Trump-Russia (oh my)?
