The Manhattan district attorney will have to end his case opposed to Paul Manafort after a New York court refused to overturn a ruling that the case violated state protections opposed to double incrimination.
The resolution puts an end to Manafort’s lawsuit through Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.
Former President Trump pardoned his former crusader president in December for federal convictions received through Mueller’s 2018 investigation.
Trump long awaited forgiving Manafort. Minutes after the long-standing Republican rep. convicted in Washington DC in March 2019, a New York state grand jury charged Manafort with loan fraud fees for conduct similar to the one that was charged by Mueller’s investigation.
Manafort went to federal prison, until the COVID-19 pandemic led to a sentence allowing him to serve his sentence at home, and that leave continued until Trump pardoned him last year.
Since Vance’s lawsuit began, Manafort’s lawyers have argued that the case violates a New York state law that provides double-sentence protections that oppose state trials for federal crimes already charged.
A state that issued a trial agreed with this argument in December 2019, ignoring the case after concluding that the law only allowed “very limited exceptions”.
Last week, the state’s highest court refused to hear a request from Vance to overturn the decision, which killed the prosecution. Manáfort had faced 16 rates at the state level.
