Paul Manafort’s lawyer Kevin Downey was heckled after he falsely claimed that Judge Amy Berman Jackson said there was no collusion with Russia in Manafort’s second federal criminal case.
Jackson said the case was not about Russian collusion issue, but did not say Manafort was innocent of Russian collusion.
Downey was repeatedly called a “liar” by a heckler while he made his false statement:
What I’m about to say is not a surprise. Judge Jackson conceded that there was absolutely no evidence of any Russian collusion in this case. So that makes — two courts have ruled no evidence of any collusion.
