Alan Dershowitz: It’s Unfair That Paul Manafort Is Being Jailed Prior To Trial

What has happened to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort is an injustice, says attorney Alan Dershowitz.

Conservative commentator and lawyer Alan Dershowitz lamented Saturday that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort is being jailed as he awaits trial -- acknowledging that others sit in jail prior to conviction as well, but decrying the fact that Manafort now joins them.

Unlike the thousands of Americans who are jailed because they cannot afford bail money, Manafort is headed to a cell because special counsel Robert Mueller believes he engaged in witness tampering.
