Today I offer a Spanish Proverb for your rumination on this good Sunday, November 5, 2017—
“When we free the eggs we will see.”
It has been almost a week since Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s first indictments. As has been widely reported, Paul Manafort was released to home confinement upon posting $10 million bail. Apparently Manafort wants more freedom.
This three passport carrying, now cash poor conspirator against the U.S. is, according to ‘Politico,’ requesting release from GPS monitoring and home confinement at his condo in Alexandria, Va. He wants the freedom to travel to Florida, Virginia, Washington, D.C. and New York… GPS free, in exchange for:
- His primary residence in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
- His Trump Tower condo in Manhattan
- A Chinatown Condo on Baxter Street
- Millions more in cash
- His life insurance policies worth a total of $4.5 Million
- His wife Kathleen…or something about her.
— Mr Man is charged, so far, with money laundering and failing to register as a foreign lobbyist, although many more charges are pending.
And if anyone is listening, I would like to offer all my personal assets, including my thirteen year old dog, in exchange for a new life in the south of France…but I need a good WiFi signal.
These billionaire criminals, with Russian mob ties, have a lot of nerve… a lot of nerve… seriously. But they expect special treatment because they usually get it.
As of yet, Manafort’s requests have not been granted. During his hearing on Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson— “seemed reluctant to discontinue his surveillance.”
I would hope so… but what about my request?
In summation, I would like to offer my thoughts on the Spanish Proverb quoted above. When we free eggs, what we will most likely see are hatched birds flying away.
