    Is the press making statements under oath on this matter? Do you believe that the press either has or should have broader First Amendment rights than individuals?

    Are a person's First Amendment rights conditioned upon who they ghost write a story with?

    The press isn’t under house arrest or under a gag order from the judge so Yes they have more rights in this case. Maybe even an obligation. Apparently a judge thought that in this case there were enough reasons to add conditions to his house arrest. I assumed he agreed to them to stay out of jail.

    A "Memo" is a piece of communication that allows you to take words like “grossly negligent” and change them to read “extremely careless”...

    Let's say that you have a memo that reads: Hillary Clinton's handling of Classified Federal Government E-Mails was “grossly negligent”. And you know that their are criminal penalties for “grossly negligent” handling of classified material - but you have it hard for Hillary... What to do - what to do. Well - you have a memo and with a memo you can simply change “grossly negligent” to read “extremely careless”...

    So now the memo reads: Hillary Clinton's handling of Classified Federal Government E-Mails was “extremely careless”... There - all taken care of. That isn't as bad because their are no criminal penalties for “extremely careless” handling of classified material.

    No, you wrote “Is the Ukraine part of Russia now? I thought it got kicked to the curb back in 1954.”.

    Crimea, part of Ukraine, was annexed by Russia in 2014.

    Correct - so Manafort was not ghostwriting an Op Ed that was to run in the Moscow Times about how Trump & Putin colluded to Hack the 2016 US Presidential Election.
